There are loads of places in London which tourists would probably love to see – if they knew they existed.
One of my favourites is Postmans Park, at the Barbican. Lots of memorials to civilians who have lost their lives whilst performing heroic acts. Fishing people out of rivers, pushing them out of the way of trams and runaway horses – that sort of thing. Its near the Museum of London, a little hidden away down from Barts’ Hospital.
Well worth a visit.
Another place that I never even knew existed until recently is Cross Bones graveyard. This final resting place for Bankside’s medieval prostitutes has become a shrine to the nameless poor. Its on Redcross Way, near the corner of Union Street, which runs off Borough High street near Borough tube station.
