Where are the 5 best places to find street food? What are the 5 most innovative theatres? What are the best places for craft ale or the best spots to dig for vintage vinyl? What are the 5 best restaurants to grab lunch at in Soho? What are the 5 must-visit stalls at Borough Market and where are the best small museums and galleries?
The 500 Hidden Secrets of London reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city, written by London explorer Tom Greig. He has selected places and details that few people know, like the only modernist house open to the public, the historic church where you can hear avant-garde electronic music, or the art deco car park that hosts art installations and fashion shows.
This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city’s best-kept secrets. All content is updated regularly.
