London's Hidden Secrets
A Guide to the City's Quirky & Unusual Sights
A unique and unusual guide to London's hidden and lesser-known sights not found in standard guidebooks. London is a city with a cornucopia of secret places, being ancient, vast and in a constant state of flux. London’s Hidden Secrets takes you off the beaten path to seek out the more unusual places that often fail to register on the radar of both visitors and residents alike, and aims to sidestep the chaos and queues of London’s tourist-clogged attractions and visit its quirkier, more mysterious side.
London’s Hidden Secrets includes 140 of the city’s loveliest buildings, secret gardens, bizarre museums, ‘lost’ graveyards, medieval pubs, cutting-edge art and design, and much more. The entries range from the enchanting canals of Little Venice to eccentric Thameside sculptures, from the stuffed remains of a philosopher to the poignant Foundling Museum, from the home of Sigmund Freud’s famous sofa to where Handel and Hendrix meet, and from the spectacular treasures of Ham House to atmospheric Kensal Green cemetery. Printed in colour with over 300 photos and 11 unique maps.

"I thought I knew London but perhaps not. Having lived here for a dozen years I should do, but I hadn't heard of many of the places in this book let alone been there. So we're working our way through them by region. It helps that it fits in a pocket and isn't too heavy, but it's packed with info and interesting anecdotes. We highly recommend it." (Helstar, Amazon)
"This book was recommended to me last week by a lady in an english heritage museum shop. Well worth buying both if you are a tourist or live in London. I fall into the latter category- and have found there are so many places I do not even realise exist to see! This book helps draw your attention to some of the best..The book is easy to use- divided into sections with a map with each part of London showing the locations and nearest tube. Great glossy photos and a page on each location. I am so impressed with it I am going to buy their second volume too. (And excellent price and speed of service from Amazon so I am VERY happy)."
