Product story

The 500 Hidden Secrets of London reveals these good-to-know addresses and many more. It is an affectionate guide to the city, written by London explorer Tom Greig. He has selected places and details that few people know, such as the bakery on Brick Lane that's open 24-hours and that's famous for its salt-beef beigels, a former department store that is now a vintage and antiques market, an award-winning theatre in Hackney Wick that seats just 110 and has a corrugated iron roof, or the historic street where Hugenot settlers first lived and is now a home to famous artists.
