London hides many a mystery beneath the smog, asphalt, and innumerable branded coffee houses. Now, you can explore the history of the capital in all its subterranean glory with the London Transport Museum's Hidden London exhibit.

Rare archive photos, never-before-seen objects, vintage posters, secret diagrams, and even decorative tiles from disused stations have been brought together to provide a snapshot of London's now-concealed underground world.

Delve into the city's forgotten Tube networks and discover the incredible stories they keep. Learn about their importance in wartime Britain, including the underground railway's role in sheltering citizens from the Blitz – Winston Churchill himself holed up at Down Street station during the worst of the bombing.

Immerse yourself in the abandoned ticket hall of Aldwych station with an authentic 1930s ticket machine, and see other iconic locations recreated in the Global Gallery. You'll recognise some from the big screen, used in box-office winners Skyfall and V for Vendetta.

Founded in 1828, ZSL London Zoo is the world’s oldest scientific zoo and is today involved in progressive conservation programs to protect African elephants, black rhinos and many other species. At the zoo you’ll find a whole plethora of animals – over 750 species – and one very special family of silverback gorillas, led by Kumbuka and his mate Mjukuu.

The 95-story Shard was designed by world renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. This architectural marvel is the tallest building in the European Union, and its distinctive shape has redefined the London skyline. If you visit The View From The Shard, you'll get a breathtaking 360-degree view of London from more than 300 meters above the city.

Though most famous for the imprisonments and beheadings held there it has, at various times, served as the royal residence, mint, menagerie, armory, observatory and as the holding place for the Crown Jewels - a function it still serves. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the tower at all times, or else the kingdom (as in United Kingdom) will fall. The ravens are still there, and so is this nearly thousand year old complex of stocky stone structures.
