Passages and Alleys

19 March 2014

Region: London

If you’re looking for an idea for today, why not follow the recommendation of Geoff Nicholson, author of Bleeding London, and explore some of London’s many passages and alleyways?

“Alleys -  on the one hand they’re good places to walk because they’re free of traffic, but sometimes they can be quite threatening or sinister – I love Newman Passage, off Charlotte Street, which features in the movie Peeping Tom, and if I remember right, is the scene of a murder."
