BROUGHT TO YOU BY JOANNE AND RICHARD JONES
The Uncovering Secret London Website is maintained and produced by Joanne and Richard Jones, who run the London Walking Tours business Discovery Tours and Events Ltd.
The site came about as a result of our explorations around the streets of London researching our walks, creating our London Treasure Hunts and updating our Harry Potter London Tour.
We noticed that there are a lot of sites on the internet that deal with the well known London attractions but, when it comes to the lesser known places, there was a dearth of detailed information out there.
Sure, there are an abundance of sites that introduce you to Secret London, but these tend to be very basic in their descriptions and the information they provide is evidently drawn form the same sources meaning that they have a samey feel about them.
THE QUIRKY, THE BIZARRE AND THE OFFBEAT
We wanted to create a website that both reflects our passion for London but which, at the same time, expands on the basic information that is already available on the internet.
And so the Uncovering Secret London website was born.
OUR CELEBRATION OF SECRET LONDON
The website is a celebration of all the wonderful places we've uncovered as we've explored London over the years.
HOW THE SITE IS STRUCTURED
We've broken it down into districts for ease of finding locations to read about and, hopefully, go out and visit.
Each location featured has a full page devoted to it, and we've researched and told its story to provide you with its history and fun facts together with any quirky anecdotes we've uncovered.
WE TELL YOU WHERE IT IS
At the end of each entry you will find a box that gives you the location of the place or item. This is followed by other boxes that provide links to connected locations that are either nearby or, in some way, related.
YOU CAN WATCH VIDEOS AND FIND FURTHER INFORMATION
Where appropriate we've also included videos showing the location, plus links to other websites where you can find further information should you wish to do so.
AN ONGOING PROJECT
The Uncovering Secret London website is an ongoing project and we intend to regularly add locations to build a comprehensive online guide to the curious, offbeat and the hidden in London, so please be sure to check back regularly.
We hope that you enjoy our offerings and that reading about them will encourage you to go out and explore London. After all this is one of the World's most fascinating cities.
