The joy of London is that there is simply so much to see and do. It can be overwhelming. To help you get to grips with the capital, we've partnered with National Express to bring you 17 of our favourite 'hidden gems', all to be found close to tube stations across inner London.
Whether you’re looking to while away a couple of hours between travel connections or embrace the capital’s culture over a longer break, the map contains something for everyone.
Rather than highlight the usual museums, bars, galleries and restaurants, we've instead chosen experiences that even long-term Londoners might not know about.
Everyone's heard about the wonders of the Globe, but did you know that the remains of an older theatre (the Rose) can be found around the corner? The crowds head to Leicester Square for its excellent movie theatres, but you might instead enjoy the antique charms of Notting Hill's Electric Cinema, where you can watch a film from the comfort of a sofa — or even a bed! Or get an alternative view of the capital from the little-known Stave Hill in Rotherhithe.
It's all there, on this map of London's Hidden Gems.
