“Secret London uncovers inconspicuous gems and sheds light on the capital’s hidden attractions” – The Guardian

“Andrew Duncan has a feel for the city and a knack of finding (and linking) major sights and forgotten corners which few can match” -Journal of the London Society

“The essential companion for anyone who has ‘done’ London and seen Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and other popular tourist sites. London historian, Andrew Duncan, uncovers the city’s best-kept secrets and reveals its remarkable history… covers the network of tunnels beneath the city’s streets, the seldom-seen rooftop gardens, the remains of Roman structures, hidden parks, alleys and courtyards, wartime shelters, even prison cells. The maps are particularly well done – easy to follow yet detailed.”- Travel Smart
