I have just updated the Top Ten List page at the top of the home page.  These are the 10 most popular articles on this site to date.  I have also listed my “Ignored 5” – five articles I think readers should take a look at for something different.  If you have a favourite that you think should be here, let me know.  

Email: LDNunveiled@gmail.com

– Courthouse Hotel – a former magistrates court, where you can have drinks in the cells, and dine in the courtroom.

– Duke’s Bar – where Ian Fleming created Bond’s martini.

– Regent Sound Studio & Denmark Street – London’s Tin Pan Alley and birthplace of modern music.

– Croydon Airport Visitor Centre – where Lindberg landed after his first trans-atlantic solo flight.

– Cockpit Steps – a London oddity with a ghost story.

– Sydenham Hill Wood – the only remnant of the Great North Wood.

– Shepherd Market – a hidden “village” in London.

– Go walking in the River Thames on a mudlarking nature walk.

– Ace Cafe – if you are a petrolhead.

– Three Mills Island – a most unique location in East London.

Five more to explore… the ignored!

– Alfie’s Antiques market – a great vintage shopping destination.

– St. Mary’s Woolnoth – a wonderful Hawksmoor Church.

– Charlton Peace Garden – a calming sanctuary.

– Fitzroy Tavern – a literary landmark and the birthplace of ‘Fitzrovia’.
