The Garden Room

The Garden Room

If you like your hidden gems well concealed this is the place for you. The Bourne and Hollingsworth Garden Room is on the 10th Floor of the Assembly Hotel not far away from Leicester Square. It is not well signed posted and visitors will need to go through the hotel’s reception to take the lift to the top. Once in the Garden Rooms – a bar restaura...

York Gate

York Gate

Nestled in the corner of Victoria Embankment Gardens is the York Gate upon the steps which the waters of the River Thames gently lapped for centuries. The steps themselves used to be where river traffic would stop allowing passengers to disembark for York House. Today it is over 100 yards from the Thames and marks the point where the ‘old’ river us...

The Gas Light, Carter Lane

The Gas Light, Carter Lane

Take a turn off the Stand and into Carting Lane behind the Savoy, and visitors can find London's last remaining sewage lamp – it is actually a replica but is in full working order. Today it is fuelled (mostly) by the mains supply of gas but curiously the Webb Patent Sewer Gas Lamp was originally powered from Bazalgette's Victorian sewers. The metha...

The Lamb and Flag

The Lamb and Flag

This pub is (possibly) one of the oldest in London and is tucked away outside the main currents ebbing and flowing to Covent Garden. The Lamb and Flag is a favourite with locals and visitors to the city and has been renamed quite a few times. It is recorded as being licensed premises in 1772, when it was the Cooper’s Arms but whether the building w...

The Seven Dials

The Seven Dials

Seven Dials lies on the border of Covent Garden and London's West End and is a stones throw from hedonistic Soho. It has a very distinctive layout with a central monument – essentially a big sundial and streets passing off it like spokes in a wheel.

There is also a fascinating story behind it which goes back to the 17th century and...
