London provides an extremely rich variety of activities for all tastes. When spoilt for choice, though, it can be difficult to make your mind up. But don’t worry, the staff at EC London has offered some of their local wisdom, particularly for those looking for something a little bit off the beaten track. Check out what they had to say…
Bushy Park is my go-to place whenever I need to be in nature or feel better. It has healing properties. I love it there!
John Soane’s Museum
It’s a wonderful museum of Soane’s private collection in his own house. It’s a unique museum that will take your breath away.
The Chislehurst Caves are about 30 mins outside of London and they are HUGE, over 20 miles of dark and mysterious passageways. They have been used to film numerous TV programmes, like Doctor Who, and rock stars such as Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones have all played there live! And to make them even more exciting, they are really really haunted… go visit!

Leake Street Tunnel
Hidden only 5 minutes from Waterloo is one of central London’s legal graffiti areas. I love it there; some of the art is mind-blowing and it’s different every time.

Crystal Palace Dinosaur Park
It’s a big beautiful park with a lake, a maze, and lots of very strange looking dinosaurs! It’s a great place for picnics.
Top Secret Comedy Club
It’s a great place to go and watch comedy as it’s central, very affordable and always a fun evening. Lots of laughter, without fail!
