    Pictures do not do the Crown Jewels justice. Just have to see these Royal Treasures in person.
    Best to get online at their website to get your tickets.

    What an outstanding experience, there is just so much to see. I didn't notice that i got stuck in churchill museum for too long (there is just so much history there to explore) and staff reminded me that they closing soon and i still have 17 more rooms too go. so i ran out of time. i would really need 3 hours for this place to see it all. so make sure you have enough time and buy your tickets on line, as the line was pretty long

    My favourite part was the upstairs gallery, so interesting and full of surprises
    Only downside was although obviously disabled we were not told there was a lift so struggled up many stairs
    The Abbey was beautiful, interesting, amazing

    Leave lots of time so you can experience everything. It's great to be able to see inside and learn about history.

    We went to the "Inspiring Walt Disney" exhibition with two granddaughters aged 7 and 10. There was an excellent video / games handset and headphones for the girls. We left the younger one to "play" and she was completely absorbed by the handset for at least 45 minutes. The older one also enjoyed the handset but we also encouraged her to look at some of the "real" exhibits. The section on anthropomorphism was a hit with her.

    You can explore all 9 levels of this world war 2 war ship and go almost anywhere. Our 13 year old son loved it as did my husband. Highly recommended.

    One of my friends from London suggested I go see the Shakespeare Globe Theatre before I left, so I went - it was one of the best decisions ever.

    This theatre offers engaging and informative educational tours led by an engaging yet knowledgeable tour guide named Matthew who, funnily enough, is also an actor!

    The ship takes less than an hour to go round and we did enjoy the experience.
    Greenwich makes a good day trip from London as there is plenty to see and do there.
    We went to London by rail and took advantage of the 2 for 1 offer on this attraction with our railcard making this attraction reasonable value for money.
    Had we not got the 2 for one offer I would have said this attraction was overpriced but then that is fairly standard for London.
    Worth a visit if you are in Greenwich.

    If you want to enjoy this monument it’s essential that you read a bit about the great fire that occurred in 1666 in london, and the history about building this monument. It’s over 60 meter high and considered an effort climbing it all…if it’s raining be carful the old stairs can be very slippery…the view from the small balcony upstairs is beautiful. The monument can be just a point of nice view ( but you have other rooftops aroud …) but - if you’re a curious person and history interests you- and your in a good shape - than you will love it much more than other rooftops…

    After 2 decades in London, we were motivated to visit this museum after watching The Essex Serpent. The location is very convenient (London Bridge) and the museum (with the amazing exhibition currently on in the herb garret) is SO much more than we anticipated! It was all so wonderfully thought-provoking, captivating, and atmospheric that I am adding it to my top list of fun things to do for visiting tourists. Hats off to the staff as well, who went above and beyond to be helpful - offering to take pictures of us in the operating theatre, recommending great poses etc. Their assistance was part of what made the visit so thoroughly enjoyable. The only downside is the insanely head-pounding loud headache-maker of a club sited immediately up against it. Why ever a council would give permission to site such a loud club next to the museum is beyond me. It definitely detracts from the ambience and it is so loud that the gentleman running the gift shop shut the door to spare me the noise while shopping. Such a great space deserves better.

    Best acknowledge about Royal family transport.
    First I would thank the entirety royal staff mews for the job they do with a smile on their face. Made all of us welcome to the land of the British monarchy. I was even invited to take and film how long it take with my go pro black 10. We were introduced to the different horses used by the Royals, the different carriages for different event and of course the Wonderful Golden Coach with some story about of the making of it.
    My fiance and I. "my husband and I" accordingly her Majesty had a remarkable moment .
    Worth a visit.
    Ps: the British royal family is down to earth with their private life style but very protocolared for the safeguard of the Monarchy.

    Well, it's not really like Times Square, is it? (Yes, the theater district is here, and they have lights and shops and restaurants, but...anyway). It's a happening place with plenty of restos to enjoy before/after a show on the West End, shopping, and people-watching. (Have seen better buskers, though).
