David Bowie recently jetted to the U.K. in secret and went unnoticed as he took his family to visit some of the city's busiest tourist destinations. The reclusive rocker, who lives in New York, make a low-key trip to his hometown earlier this summer (14) with his supermodel wife Iman and their 13-year-old daughter Alexandria. Iman has revealed they avoided London's main airport, Heathrow, and instead jetted into budget airline hub Luton, before embarking on a low-key summer holiday in the British capital. The family visited tourist hotspots including the London Eye, and Iman insists her superstar husband went unrecognised. She tells Britain's The Observer Magazine, "We went this summer. And no one knew! It's absurd this idea that celebrities can't be anonymous. We even went on the London Eye. We queued separately, (daughter) Lexi had a friend with her and they went with the bodyguard and then we all met on board." Bowie even took the teenager to see the house where he grew up in suburban Beckenham. Iman adds, "He took her to Beckenham. They went and took a photo outside the house he grew up in."
