London Unveiled

great places to visit off the beaten path.


London Unveiled is searchable by category or Borough.  Including the City of London there are 33 boroughs.  If you would like to explore what a particular borough has to offer then select that link from the ‘Category’ section on the home screen.  If you are more interested in a topically category, such as historic buildings or Pubs of Interest then select that link.

In addition to the primary categories, you will find some key words that you can click on that provide an even narrower focus, such as ‘American London’, or ‘tea’.

I hope you enjoy the resources here as much as I do posting them.  If you have any ideas or suggestions to improve this resource for others please let us know by email at .

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I just browsed your blog and find it very informative. I wish I had read it before going to London!

    Hey there! Thanks for liking my most recent post, much appreciated 🙂 I’m pretty new to this blogging stuff and so far most of my views are from mates lol. Can I ask how you came across mine?
    I just head a read of yours and it is awesome! I wish I knew about it when I was living in London! Oh well, now I now where to look before my next visit.

      Hi Sarah – I really enjoy reading various blog posts – mostly those that have stuff to do with London – sometimes it gives me ideas for post entries… but in general its more fun that reading the newspaper 🙂 Yours was no exception… most entertaining writing in a good Bridget Jones sort of way. So if you are not familiar with the ‘Reader’ go to the little (W) in the top left corner and select ‘READER’ – then put in a topic or key word that you like to read about and ‘voila’. Thus I found you by reading ‘London’ posts. If you find someone whose material you like, then be certain to ‘Follow’ them… that way their posts always show up in your Reader… tho’ you probably knew that. All the best, IAN

  9. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      April 27, 2013

      I use WordPress and then upgraded to get my own custom url, but the format is a standard WP format design. All the best, Ian

    What a great site, really informative and interesting. I grew up in South London and moved to Bucks when I was 21. Consequently I don’t see much of London these days & am looking forward to finding some of your ‘hidden gems’ – thanks, Sharon 🙂

      Hi Sharon – thanks for your comment. I’m glad you find my blog interesting and informative. I hope it gives you a few ideas for your next trip to London. All the best, IAN

    Thanks for the follow. Apologies for using a link to your site without asking.
    Truth is, I just forgot! I hope it got you some traffic.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  13. We absolutely love your blog and find a lot of your
    post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome blog!

      September 1, 2014

      Thanks for the positive comments. All my posts are original content based on my own personal opinions, but thank you for your interest in a guest blog post. All the best, Ian
