There are places in London that tourists don’t know. That’s why after living in London for almost four years I can share with you some of the gems that London has: beautiful spots, great views and amazing pubs.



Alexandra Palace (Ally Pally)

  • Located in the north of London. This is an amazing park between Muswell Hill and Wood Green with an incredible view of London.  Ally Pally is the building where the ice rink is and where many concerts take place.


Hampstead Health

  • Between Hampstead and Highgate. This is a huge park; very wild and rocky. Inside there’s a pond and it’s also a fantastic place for kids and has plenty sport courts. This is a must for animal lovers. 



Primrose Hill

  • You can find it on the northern side of Regent’s Park in London.  The built up part of Primrose Hill comprises mainly Victorian terraces. This is a perfect park for running, romantically strolling and enjoying the fabulous views.  





The Anchor 

  • You will find a marvellous pub called the anchor near London Bridge. 
    It differs from other pubs because it has a big terrace with a bar outside next to the River Thames. Inside, you have different floors decorated like a typical English pub. 



Tattershall Castle 

  • This pub is also a boat in Embankment which has a restaurant and disco downstairs. Enjoy the breath-taking views whilst you sit on the deck sipping a nice pint of ale surrounded by two of London’s famous landmarks: The Eye + Big Ben. 



The Sail Loft 

  • This Greenwich pub takes its name from the rooms where boat sails are laid out at full length to be shaped and cut. This place has wonderful views of the whole Thames.  





Dinner at the Twits (Waterloo) 

  • This is a show where you are invited to a dinner with the hosts Mrs and Mr Twit. Tuck into some of the delicious dishes from Bompas & Parr and creative wranglers at Creature of London. Don’t forget to receive a welcoming cocktail and taste different and swanky drinks and food.  



Secret Cinema London 

  • It has taken the world of immersive experiences to the next level. A large-scale production in some of the most beautiful spaces worldwide, is a 360-degree participatory world where the boundaries between performer and audience, set and reality are constantly shifting. 



Faulty Towers the Dining Experience (Trafalgar Square) 

  • This spot represents the TV series Faulty Towers, acclimated like the authentic hotel where you are the guest and they are the hosts.
