Knowing London behind the scenes will provide you a different kind of experience.

It's easy to learn about the stories behind the scenes in London if you take a little time to wander around the city and explore beyond the obvious.

The Old Bailey, also known as the Central Criminal Court, is featured in many of the best crime novels. On weekdays, the public gallery is open to the public for a peek.

It may appear impenetrable from the outside, but a trip to the Bank of England Museum allows visitors to see what goes on beyond the curtain wall.

Backstage tours are available at many of London's theaters. At the Royal Opera House, Shakespeare's Globe, or the Theatre Museum, you can find out more about the history of the theater.

London is also a favorite setting for movies, particularly those filmed in the ‘90s.

If you saw Disney’s “101 Dalmatians” (1996), then visit Battersea Park, Burlington Arcade, Kenwood House, Leicester Square, and Trafalgar Square.

If you saw the blockbuster comedy “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” (1998), then go to Borough Market and Staples Market as well as to Bethnal Green Town Hall near Patriot Square. You’ll get another impression of London behind the scenes.

At Madame Tussaud's Blush, visitors may get a glimpse of what goes on behind the closed doors of a purely A-list celebrity event.

Check out the places featured in two Gwyneth Paltrow films.

In “Sliding Doors” (1998): Bertorelli, Fat Boys Diner, and The Blue Anchor (all places to eat and drink) and the London Underground.

In “Shakespeare in Love” (1998): – the Banqueting House, Marble Hill House, and the medieval church St. Bartholomew the Great.

Of course, the fictitious Platform 9 ¾ (Platform 4 in real life) from “Harry Potter” at Kings Cross railway station.

Another way to experience London behind the scenes is to take the tour called “Hidden Houses of London.” In addition, stroll in these two popular streets: Baker Street and Oxford Street.

Is London A Safe City?

London-based business firm Shergroup stated on its website that London is “comparably a safe city.” Still, crime such as theft exists, particularly in the boroughs of London.

Discovering London behind the scenes may take you to some places that may not be that safe. For Londoners, these 10 places are considered the “most dangerous” ones in 2021:

(1) Croydon

(2) Newham

(3) Tower Hamlets

(4) Southwark

(5) Hackney

(6) Ealing

(7) Lambeth

(8) Westminster (high instances of pickpocketing)

(9) Brent

(10) Haringey

Witnessing and experiencing London behind the scenes will make you realize the true beauty and meaning of this splendid city.
