More than a dozen guides for areas across London have been created

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan is backing a new set of official guides to London areas that show off the capital’s hidden gems.

Mr Khan is one of a dozen local London bloggers to create insider guides to their local area.

Whilst the Labour mayor wrote about his native Tooting, guides have been created for across south London.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London’s cultural and gastronomic gems are not just limited to the city centre, and that’s one of the things I love most about this city. Almost every nook and cranny is hive of activity, offering something for absolutely everyone. From Camden to Tooting and Ealing to Greenwich, every local area has its own personality and appeal.

“There are secret cinemas and intimate theatres, local festivals, heritage sites and grassroots music venues all over the city. I urge tourists to not only enjoy our world-renowned central London sites, but to wander off the beaten track and see more of London.”

The new guides, called See More London are available at www.visitlondon.com/areas.
