Hidden London  - Uncovering the lesser known sites of London town

I have always had a huge love and admiration for London and my significant other and I tend to spend 4-5 weeks each summer in Devon enjoying valuable rest and relaxation and immersing ourselves in English country life. Nothing quite beats wandering to the local pub for a roast dinner, or sipping a glass of Pimms in the beer garden;  munching on fish & chips down at the beach or pulling on wellies and wandering through the fields in the drizzle, reading up on the latest antics of the Royal family …..
