Is it the home of Tudor hobbits, or the cover for a secret tunnel to Buckingham Palace? Well, currently it’s basically London’s fanciest garden shed, but Soho Square’s two-storey central hut does act as an emergency fire escape for a 3,200 sq ft underground bunker from World War Two.

A small green patch of tranquillity in the bustling Soho, which dates back to 1681. It's a great spot to hang out for a quick bite and soak in the rare British sun. The park features a statue of Charles II in the park, who the park was originally named after, King Square, as well as Tudor-style (although not original Tudor) gardener's hut in the centre of the park, which houses the electrical substation. During WWII the hut was used as a bomb shelter.
