Great if don't live in London
I do, friend gifted me the app so it's was a novelty as I was looking for something interesting. It rapidly wore off when I realised I knew a great swathe of all the places listed.
If you don't live in London and want a slightly different outing to the big smoke then this is as good as a lonely planet or other city guides.
If anything the latest reviews on the Time Out website are an equal match for the adventurous. That's free and while there is a chance its a duffer you do get the chance to discover a new gem before you can't get a seat.
I use Secret London every time I come to the capital for the weekend and have found some ace places to eat and interesting things to see. The only thing that would make it EVEN better would be to put tube stations on the integrated map, as it can be quite difficult to work out how to get to the 'secrets'. Other than that it's a top idea if you want to get away from the regular tourist haunts.
Fantastic app, fantastic secret places!
This is an essential app to check if you're heading into London.
It's taken us to some brilliant hidden spots and not been wrong yet.
When we're planning a night out we always check it first and it's shown us some brilliant places.
The app is also easy to use and worth every penny.
