The London most visitors won't see

We've all seen the iconic images of London, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge etc. But there is an awful lot more to London than the tourist traps contained within the West End and The City. With over 8 million people and covering over 600 square miles Greater London has much more than the average visitor to London sees.
I'd like to share some photos that I have taken over the last few years of areas of London that most visitors to this great city might not see. Sometimes they are typical urban scenes but many of them show that London is a very green city with some lovely open spaces, great architecture but definitely urban.

I'll post a small number of images per post so that the pages will load faster.

Its nice to know though that while most people are battling crowds on Oxford Street or the Southbank there are whole areas unblighted by tourists where real Londoners still do their own thing.

Tetramesh this is such a great thread- for so many reasons. Great skills and thanks for keeping the posts to a few shots at a time. Good to see parts of town that unfortunately I'll probably never go to.

As much as I love to visit places like the Southbank and The City it can be extremely busy. I'm glad that these tourists have chosen to visit London but it is just the sheer number of them that puts me off going to the central areas, especially in the Summer months.

Unfortunately there seem to still be too many images loading, I think I'll reduce the number per post.

Yes, the skyscrapers are an exception to this set of images, they were viewed from Woolwich in south-east London with a telephoto lens.
I'm glad to hear that in general these photos do not reflect your perception of London.
