If you’ve ever been to London before, then it’s likely that you’ve seen many a play, church, statue, museum, art gallery… there are so many attractions in the capital of England that it’s often hard to pick a favourite, or even fit everything into a single trip. But there are some locations off the beaten track that general tourist guides won’t hint at or tell you about at all, so we thought we’d suggest some that might be of interest to you.
Camden Town is a good stopping-off point if you’re looking to see more rock memorabilia and creatively hand-made jewellery than you’ve ever seen before! Anything from a t-shirt for the Iron Maiden fan in your life to a glamorous silver ring that’ll be a treat for someone who might have some Cheeky Bingo winnings to burn on holiday. Highlights include the many local cuisine outlets in the markets and the canal itself, with boats making their way through it over the course of the day.
It’s also worth visiting a particular Pizza Express – the one on Dean Street in Soho, just off of Oxford Street. This particular joint is a jazz club as well as a restaurant, so you’ll find a wealth of jazz legends performing here, and the food is great as always. It’s also good value for money, and a night you’ll never forget.
You should consider areas of London outside of the city centre, too – there are plenty of tourist attractions that can sometimes go ignored because they’re not near the West End, for example. To name a few – Alexandra Palace, Hampton Court, Hatfield House (although it’s just outside London). All of them are viable destinations, and with the other two aforementioned suggestions, you might find that your next trip to London includes a few gems that most tourists don’t see.
