A couple of weeks ago, our Events Manager, Nicky, asked me if I could suggest some places that are not so much visited. It is a difficult task, as you can guess. Because most places appear on different London guides, blogs, etc. Although there are a few spots that remain out of the reach for most crowds.
I am not saying everyone has the same tastes and interests, but the list below could mean ‘some fresh air’ for those used to visit the City :)
The Monument to the Great Fire of London, more commonly known simply as the Monument, is a stone Roman Doric column in the City of London, near the northern end of London Bridge, which commemorates the Great Fire of London. The top of the Monument is reached by a narrow winding staircase of 311 steps and you get a diploma if you do so! But the most important thing: the views are absolutely superb!
Hampstead Heath (Parliament Hill)
Hampstead Heath is one of the oldest parks in London. But this spot became popular since this grassy public space sits astride a sandy ridge, one of the highest points in London. In summertime it is very common for Londoners to go to Parliament Hill and enjoy a picnic there (when the sun allows doing so).
