The palm-sized, neon purple ‘Little Book of Secrets’ was launched at an exclusive ‘Secret Garden’ cocktail party, held at The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers.

The guide contains 12 recommended venues, which can be used for events, and has been published with the February issue of C&IT.

Other venues in the mini-guide include an empty pharmaceutical warehouse called Great Eastern Quays, The House of Magic - a mysterious venue, which boasts a haunted cellar and enchanted garden, plus The Herne Hill Velodrome - an original 1940’s sports venue which was used for the 1948 London Olympics.

Zanine Adams, Head of Events Solutions & UK Sales at Visit London commented: "We’re delighted with our ‘Little Book of Secrets’ – it’s a fun guide which will hopefully tantalise event planners across the world to hunt-down and use some of London’s more quirky events spaces that we have hidden away in the capital. With the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games just around the corner we’re aware that clients and events planners are searching high and low for unique and inimitable venues which will deliver the wow-factor to their event – hopefully this guide will whet their appetites."

Conference & Incentive Travel editor Yasmin Arrigo added: "We asked our readers to share their favourite secret event spaces with us and the Little Book of Secrets truly captures the diversity of London’s venue offering."
