London's hidden gems and things to do: Lesser-known spots everyone should visit at least once

We asked LondonWorld readers for their hidden gems in the capital - and they came up with some surprising suggestions.

London is home to some of the most famous landmarks in the world - but everyone reading this will know there is so much more to discover.

The best way to discover this city's hidden gems can be simply to set off on a walk. You never know what historical church, charming cafe or bizarre bit of architecture you'll find.

But we thought we'd ask readers on LondonWorld's Facebook page: "What’s the one lesser-known spot in London that everyone should visit at least once?"

The answers were fascinating and unexpected, from a free city farm to a luxurious venue with a view of London's skyline.

Two amazing art galleries were highlighted, as well as a hidden park, which few people will have seen.

The inns of court are fine exemplars of London's grandeur, and did you know you can go on a caves tour?

Personally, I was delighted to see one of London's great pubs represented. The city wouldn't be the same without them.

And, as an 'editor's choice', I've added in a hugely influential music venue with decades of history behind it.

Of course, all of this only scratches the capital's surface. If you have a hidden gem we might not be aware of, email us at [email protected]. And join the discussion on our Facebook page.

Here's to a wonderful 2024 in London!
