Who can for­get the Lon­don Olympic

Games? We saw sport­ing heroes, in­clud­ing Jes­sica En­nis-Hill, who be­came a house­hold name after her hep­tathlon vic­tory, Mo Farah with his ‘mobot’ pose and The Queen ‘parachut­ing’ out of a he­li­copter. Re­live the joy of Lon­don’s legacy in our Olympic fea­ture, and find out where you can watch this year’s

Rio Olympic Games (p. 10). Lon­don is a city filled with peo­ple – it’s hard to find any se­cret spa­ces. In Hid­den Lon­don (p. 16) we tell you about tours of places we can’t be­lieve still ex­ist, from bunkers used by Sir Win­ston Churchill dur­ing World War II to dis­used Un­der­ground sta­tions. Plus, we round up un­usual lo­ca­tions any­one can visit, in­clud­ing the place where the world’s first suc­cess­ful Cae­sarean sec­tion was per­formed and the site of some an­cient Ro­man baths.

This is a great time to visit Lon­don as so many of our iconic build­ings are open for you to visit, in­clud­ing the Houses of Par­lia­ment (p. 28) and royal res­i­dences Buck­ing­ham

Palace and Clarence House (p. 24). Lon­don also comes alive in the sum­mer! As the sun shines, you will see the city in a new light with beer gar­dens (p. 80), out­door art trails (p. 40), bustling mar­kets (p. 62), open-air swimming pools (p. 84), pop-up cine­mas and the­atre venues (p. 48), and pic­nic ham­pers you can pick up and en­joy in nearby parks (p. 68).

En­joy the sum­mer!
