Hidden Gems Of London
Living in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, it is easy to think that you have seen and done all there is to do in London. Here, we reveal some wonderfully hidden gems that might reignite your love of our capital…
Wilton’s Music Hall
There is so much history in this fantastic city that London residents often forget how lucky they are. It is easy to feel that you have seen all the historic sights after a stroll across the south bank or a visit to a famous museum, but this hidden gem really brings the history of this city to life.
You will need to book a ticket, but it is definitely worth it to catch one of the various performances within this fully restored Victorian building. Tickle your tastebuds with an ale from the fantastic Mahogany Bar.
Dennis Severs’ House
For another slice of traditional London, this is a must-visit. A tourist attraction, this house invites visitors to wander around the former home of the renowned artist, but there is a twist…
The home is set up as if it has just been vacated by an 18th century family with beds left unmade and uneaten food scattered around the house. Truly intriguing for all the family.
For all the literature-lovers this gem is sure to hit the spot. It is a magical wonder, looking like it has come straight from the Harry Potter universe. If oak beams, Edwardian architecture and thousands of books sounds like your idea of heaven, then head to the Marylebone store where you will find all in abundance.
For those of you wanting to escape the bustle of city life, this wonderful garden should be your first port of call.
A majestic garden filled with serene ponds, towering trees and ornately lined shrubs, this is a little slice of paradise that you can easily escape to.
