City Secret Spaces Trail

01 June - 31 August

We're inviting you to peek behind the bustle of The City, navigating its twisting streets to explore its abundance of hidden gardens, unknown artworks and public spaces.

The City of London has some of the most fascinating stories and greatest histories spanning more than 2,000 years. Through the LFA's theme of 'In Common' we are thinking about the importance of our public spaces, of which the City has many. Some of these spots - and their stories - may be unknown to visitors, workers and residents alike. This trail will reveal some of the City's history and future direction by shining a light on its network of public spaces and secret stories.

All the stops on this trail are accessible to the public and free to enter. Some may have opening times, so please check in advance.
