One of the most charming cities in the world, London is a popular tourist destination attracting travellers from far and wide. Magnificent architecture, vibrant nightlife, avant-garde shopping destinations, and museums stocking the rich historical heritage are just a few attractions that define London. But, there are some hidden gems that are as regal as Buckingham Palace or Westminster Abbey. Most of these places are easily accessible from many of the 5 star hotels in London. Join us as we explore these less-visited places of the capital of England.

 

Little Venice

You might be surprised to know that London has a Venice of its own. Little Venice is a prominent neighbourhood in London located near Hyde Park. The locality is unlike any other and got its name from the Italian city of Venice with which it shares a strong resemblance. The picturesque canals and waterways make Little Venice a perfect weekend getaway. Visitors can indulge in a number of activities such as watching puppet shows at the Puppet theatre Barge and taking a boat ride on the canals. You can grab a bite of your favourite meal at one of the many pubs, waterside cafes or restaurants in Little Venice.

 

Phoenix Garden

Phoenix Garden is among the many pockets of greenery in the city. The park is a perfect place for those seeking a few hours of solitude or are wildlife enthusiasts. Comprising ponds, grassy patches and abundance of greenery, it is surprising that the park is a hidden gem. On a visit to the park do not get surprised if a frog jumps in your way as there are many of them here.

 

Camden Passage

In the London borough of Islington lies the Camden passage. It is among the best places in London to dine out or buy something unusual. On both sides of the passage are lined numerous restaurants, cafes and antique shops and markets that not just offer mouth-watering delicacies but fancy products ranging from furniture to items such as party outfits and even war memorabilia.

 

Sky Garden

Located at an impressive height, the Sky Garden offers tourists a bird’s eye view of the city of London. Spanning three storeys, the Sky Garden is located on 20 Fenchurch Street. Some fun and leisure activities at Sky Gardens include checking out the observation desks or simply strolling in the landscaped gardens or on the open-air terrace. You can satiate your hunger at the restaurants and bars at Sky Garden. The best part about Sky garden is that access is free.
