Mysterious locations hiding among history’s most popular attractions! From the secret rooms of the world’s train stations to the hidden apartments within iconic, international landmarks.
#14 Trafalgar Police Station
In the southeast corner of London’s Trafalgar Square, a seemingly old yet innocuous light pole sits comfortably atop a small, enclosed room, fitting in with the historical English city. But this fixture is more than just a means of illuminating the city streets…the room within is actually London’s smallest police station! Built in the 1920s, this room was constructed as a watch-post for officers responding to the common protests the city was known for, but today it simply serves as storage for street cleaners.
#13 Radio City Suite
One of the most famous landmarks and venues in New York City is Manhattan’s own Radio City Music Hall. Despite its history as a host for a wide variety of award shows, legendary concerts, and even a handful of highly publicized sporting events, few realize the mythic music hall also contains an apartment! Well above the audience in the auditorium and mezzanines below, this suite was once home to Samuel “Roxy” Rothafel, a popular theatre impresario who garnered a highly respected reputation in the industry organizing productions within the Radio City Music Hall. The Art Deco architects responsible for the building constructed the room just for Rothafel, as a way to show thanks for his incredible work. This Roxy Suite is uninhabited now, but can be rented out for luxury events.
#12 Little Compton Street
Beneath the grates of the Charing Cross Road in London, a remnant from the English city’s past gives passersby an insight at a street that used to be. Nestled in the service tunnels that run below the busy bookstore shopping hub are signs for the now extinct Little Compton Street. This street used to be a commonly used avenue near Trafalgar Square, but in 1896 it was replaced with an office block. Many assume the signs in the tunnels below the city hint at a buried street, but this is simply a common misconception. Witnesses are instead looking at the Cambridge Circus Utility Tunnels which feature the street signs as a token of remembrance rather than ruins.
