My family is going to London for four days. We'd love to see some of the smaller, lesser-known attractions. Suggestions?

Who needs Big Ben? In London, small really is beautiful, and quirky reigns supreme. A few unsung attractions worth seeking out: Sir John Soane's Museum, a hodgepodge of antiquities and a monument to one man's obsessions; the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms, a series of underground bunkers used in World War II; Sigmund Freud's house, where Herr Doktor lived after fleeing Austria in 1938; Chelsea Physic Garden, a flowering haven in the heart of the city; and the Charles Dickens Museum, the only surviving London home of the great Victorian novelist.
