Enjoying London off the beaten track

London is one of the most visited cities in the world. Around 15 million visitors throng the streets each year but most head for the same old places. 
 
If you've never visited London before, there are some must-sees. The London Eye, for example, claims to be the most visited paid-for attraction in the city and offers a memorable and spectacular experience. The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square are as iconic as they are historic while The British Museum hosts arguably the finest collection of arts and artefacts in the world while the Tate Modern is a must for culture vultures.
 
There are also a host of attractions away from the beaten track and whether you're returning to London as a seasoned visitor or arriving for the first time, there will always be plenty of new experiences for you to try.
 
Try a number of murder and ghost walks or, if you're not too squeamish, visit the Hunterian Museum to check out their collection of body parts in jars. 
Alternatively, Dennis Severs' House offers candlelit tours of an authentically decorated 18th century Spitalfields property. 
 
If you want to get out of central London meanwhile, just half an hour's train ride can take you to the breathtaking Chiselhurst Caves. 
 
Add a constantly changing array of one-off events, shows, performances and concerts and you can make your own unique itinerary based on your own tastes and interests.
 
Making the most of your stay
 
While experiencing all the different aspects of life in London, you’ll want to get the most out of your stay and a lot of that comes down to what accommodation you’ve chosen. If you’re already open to the idea of experiencing the alternative side of London then why not try a different way to stay in the city as well? 
 
Kippsy is a relatively new venture that describes itself as a community that puts those with a spare room, apartment or any other residential property in touch with visitors looking for somewhere to stay. This might mean professional landlords but it might equally be locals looking to make use of their space while they're out of town themselves. 
 
The focus is on matching potential tenants to their ideal accommodation but also on safe and secure short-term lettings that let both parties deal with each other in complete confidence. 
 
Kippsy is still in relative infancy but already has hundreds of properties listed from all across the city. Many of these are away from the usual tourist spots which means you get to experience the capital in the same way as a native Londoner rather than being herded into typical tourist accommodation with all the other visitors.
 
As well as a variety of locations, there are properties in an equally wide range of styles and budgets. So, whether you're looking for London family apartments or a single-person hideaway, Kippsy provides a great alternative to the usual run-of-the-mill hotel room and is the perfect option for those looking to enjoy London off the beaten track.
