Even the most popular of destinations has its quirky side. Here are my favorite 7 offbeat things to see in London.
We were determined to only follow in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper guided by Russell Edwards, author of the best-selling book “Naming Jack the Ripper”. If we were to get deeper inside the story, we might as well be accompanied by an expert. However, in the day we reserved to visit Whitechapel, in London’s East End, we were so bored by another borough struck by gentrification that we decided to take our own self-guided tour. Maybe it was just the “theme” of our expedition getting the best of us, but in most of the places all we could hear was dead silence, even in a busy weekday morning.
Our self-guided London South Bank walk includes all must-sees but also comes with an offbeat twist in the end.
