Navigating Hidden London

17 January 2012 from 6:30pm to 8pm

Central London is permeated by secret alleys and little-known passageways. Often left off the map, these little-appreciated spaces can be used as handy shortcuts or to avoid busy shopping streets, and serve as alternative means of navigating the city. Editor of Londonist - Matt Brown, and David Long, author of Hidden City: The Secret Alleys, Courts and Yards of London’s Square Mile, discuss the surprising history and modern importance of London's alleys, ginnels and snickleways.
