Head to London’s more Unique Attractions


With so much going on in London it is easy to find some attractions that are more unusual and away from the traditional tourist hot spots.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with making sure you see the iconic landmarks that have made London famous, including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

Big Ben

However, here are just a few of the more unusual attractions in the English capital that could tempt those looking for a different take on the London tourism scene.

Miniature London

If you want to see all of London in one place, then check out New London Architecture’s amazing 1:1500 scale model of the city.

The Shard

If you haven’t started your sightseeing yet, it’s a novel way to plan where you’d like to go. The model can be seen free of charge at New London Architecture’s offices near Goodge Street between 9.30am and 6pm on weekdays and 10am and 5pm on Saturdays.

Pollock’s Toy Museum

Toy Museum

Pollock’s Toy Museum in Fitzrovia is an intriguing attraction and is actually more suitable for adults rather than children. It features several iconic toys dating back several years and is great for resurfacing those childhood memories.

Junkyard Golf

There has been a resurgence in crazy golf in recent years in the form of Junkyard Golf. One of the best courses in the capital can be found in the Brick Lane area.

Players can pick from three different nine-hole courses and attempt to succeed via all sorts of objects, including cows and speed boats. The nearest London Underground stations are Whitechapel on the District and Hammersmith & City Lines, and Liverpool Street on the Central, Circle and Metropolitan Lines – so easy to travel from London’s central hotels.
