From the publisher

Where can you peer inside Richard Burton’s tent? Whatever happened to Bedlam? Where can you praise God, buy meatballs, and have a sauna? What’s in the House of Dreams? Where can you find monsters in Trafalgar Square? What’s growing quietly under your feet? To which secret society does Prince Charles belong? What’s the trick to instant weight loss?

Secret London – An unusual guide is the original and still the best of all the many alternative London guides: accept no imitation. Authors Rachel Howard and Bill Nash have prowled the city streets, seeking out the hidden, eccentric, and overlooked. Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, London still reserves any number of hidden treasures for those who know how to wander off the beaten track.
