In Pictures: Empty and Abandoned London

In Pictures: Empty and Abandoned London

From abandoned tourist spots to derelict buildings, there's some spooky beauty to be found in these pictures of London without the people.

Look out for the old loos, no longer in use; and the huge buildings like the Heygate Estate that used to dominate London's skyline, now reduced to mere memories.
