Hidden in Full View

London boasts an incredible range of activities and attractions and a whole host of accommodations, restaurants and nightlife to compliment it. However, much of London is fast becoming a cliché as everyone who stays in the city watches the changing of the guards at Buckingham palace and visits the massive Arts collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum.



So if you’re planning a trip to England’s capital, how can you get the most out of your visit without becoming yet another tourist queuing for the London Eye?

Visit Monopoly Squares

Plus if you have children with you it gives an element of play and fun to what can otherwise be long and tiring days.

You could even have a copy of the board game on hand in case of rainy days or illness.

Hidden Attractions

Whilst there are all the obvious tourist attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, London Bridge and Madame Tussauds, London also hides a wealth of lesser well known and equally enticing attractions. From dinosaur sculptures to tiny churches and intimate encounters with Egyptian archaeology relics to the three devils of St Peter; some of the lesser well known attractions are actually some of the most curious.

In a smaller place these attractions would on their own draw deserved attraction from visitors but it is like they have fallen throw the holes of a bigger net that has been weighed down with more national museums and galleries than it can handle.
