London's Best Stunts Caught On Camera

You never know what you're going to come across in London. You might be walking down an innocuous street and be suddenly face-to-face with a dinosaur, or go for walk down Southbank and be overtaken by a house floating down the Thames. Sometimes you stumble across a movie set, other times it's a fun PR stunt and occasionally it's just a freerunner strutting their stuff. Here are some of our favourite London stunts:
