Secret London

Explore a totally different side to the city with our guide to secret London – featuring lesser-known museums, low-key bars and other clandestine shenanigans

Don’t get us wrong, we’re huge fans of the big London museums and major art galleries, but sometimes we all need a bit of peace and quiet. While London’s best hotels offer this for visitors, it’s also great to know the places where you’re guaranteed not to be asked for directions to Piccadilly Circus or whacked with a selfie stick. That’s why we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to secret London – a treasure trove of places that fly under the radar despite being totally brilliant. So get stuck into a less crowded day out. Just keep it under your hat, yeah?
