London - one of the greatest cities in the world for visitors - is packed full of iconic landmarks.

You can do a few whistle-stop tours that will enable you to see all the main sights but then it's such fun to uncover the real London.

The things that make it unique and special can be found if you take the time to look.

It's a delightful oasis from the bustle of the city.

Sitting on Trafalgar Square, there are plenty of reasons to visit the impressive Church of St, Martins-in-the-Field, not least for its free concerts and cafe in the crypt.

While there, look out for the unusual window.

Grimaldi Park

Hidden away on a side street near King’s Cross Station is the grave of Joseph Grimaldi, hailed as the first modern clown and the reason why for generations clowns were known as "Joeys".

It used to be that on the first Sunday in February, a congregation full of clowns would hold a service to commemorate those clowns who had died in the previous year - nowadays it is held in Holy Trinity Church in Dalston).
