Step 1 of 7: Intro
Have you ever wondered where in the capital you can climb an ice wall, or find a pet cemetery? Of course you haven’t. But Secret London will tell you anyway – and will also introduce you to enough hidden bars, restaurants and shops to give even the most jaded, Olympics-weary Londoner the urge to go exploring again. Meanwhile, it’s a great way for visitors to escape the standard tourist trail of Madame Tussauds and Buckingham Palace.
And what an exploration it is: this is an app that will have you questing down alleyways and scouring for hidden doors, in search of some of London’s most offbeat spots. You’ll see a side of the city you never knew was there.
Some of Secret London’s features are on the basic side, and the app is a little rough around the edges, but that’s more than made up for by the content. Secret London’s selection of places to visit is brilliantly curated and shows a real love for the capital and all of its hidden surprises.
Time required: 5 mins or 6 hours – how long have you got?
