To celebrate the anniversary of .LONDON, here are some of the weirdest websites London has to offer.

Sometimes you just need a little pick me up. A little humour, a little quirky nonchalance to brighten the rigmarole of your web browsing. Weird and wonderful we've teamed up with GoDaddy (one of the UK's leading web host providers) to scour the web to celebrate the one year anniversary of the .LONDON domain name. For some background: The .LONDON domain, available to buy since September 2014, enables business to highlight their connections with the capital or associate themselves with the global city. Twenty percent of Europe's largest companies are headquartered there, and small businesses can join this group by basing their web presence there too. Without further ado, here are some of the weirdest websites London has to offer.
