London's full of clandestine places that most of us will never be able to see: behind-the-scenes, closed off portions of important institutions, or derelict venues that have been sealed up for decades. Our capital is rich with these mysterious pockets of space – a room containing everything that has ever been left on public transport, a spookily neglected Victorian theatre, a workshop used to refurbish giant spiders. Intrigued? We thought so. In the spirit of revealing some of the city's more special sights, we bring you a selection of some of our favourite off-limit parts of London. Consider this your Access All Areas pass to the city.
