London Best-Kept Secrets brings together the 'greatest hits' from our London's Secrets series. We take you off the beaten tourist path to seek out the more unusual ('hidden') places that often fail to register on the radar of both visitors and residents alike. Nimbly sidestepping the chaos and queues of London's tourist-clogged attractions, we visit its quirkier - but no less fascinating - side. London Best-Kept Secrets takes in some of the city's loveliest hidden gardens and parks, absorbing and poignant museums, great art and architecture, beautiful ancient buildings, magnificent Victorian cemeteries, historic pubs, fascinating markets and much more. Entries range from the enchanting Hill Garden to the magical canals of Little Venice, from the home of Britain's greatest naturalist to atmospheric Dennis Severs House, from the moving Foundling Museum to the spiritual home of Big Ben, the splendour of some of Wren's greatest churches to a stunning house designed by William Morris, and from the spectacular treasures of Syon House to atmospheric Kensal Green cemetery. With a copy of London's Best-Kept Secrets to guide you, you'll never be bored of London (or life).
We hope that you enjoy discovering the city's secrets as much as we did.
