    So much to see and do that if you fail to plan you will easily become overwhelmed, as we did. Make sure you pre-plan a course of action. We felt slightly troubled by the fact many of these treasures were plundered (“taken”) from others, just be prepared, it is a bit unsettling.

    A great experience as a massive fan, absolutely loved the legend tour with Charlie George. Very informative, friendly and took time with everyone on the tour. Great opportunities for plenty of photos .

    Some really interesting artefacts from early tennis racquets and balls to signed clothing and trophies past and present.

    Museum runs in chronological order, and goes round in a loop. A must see if visiting Wimbledon championship.

    Took us about half an hour but you could spend longer here. No queue to get in and not overly crowded when we visited. Free entry to museum is included when visiting during the championship.

    Of course museum exits through the gift shop, not the cheapest of places but that’s to be expected.

    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.

    This museum is like the Tardis - 3 floors of dockland history covering the lives of sailors, dockers and also slavery. Very informative and amusing talk on the disaster of the ship Princess Alice by Andrew, would highly recommend it

    Fantastic museum - modern and well put together. Just the right size. Train is an amazing, unique experience - can’t believe I waited this long to visit!

    Lords tour and dinning experience in the players dinning room, what a fantastic 3 hours for any cricket lover, and even those with little cricket interest. Very knowledgeable guide who took the tour around all parts of the ground, including The Long Room, players dressing rooms, media centre, scorers box and inside the Museum. The food served in the players dinning room was excellent, 3 courses plus wine, beer or soft drinks.

    Couldn't recommend this day out enough.

    Canaletto exhibition is cleverly set in a dark space and spot lit paintings. Beautiful and intricate. Thoughtful tide comparisons between then and now, thanks to digital wizardry. Airy and roomy cafe. Tasteful, nautical themed shop. Brilliantly amusing World Map upstairs. On the floor, so you can walk over the Continents and Oceans! Beautiful stained glass reconstruction of the domed Baltic Exchange from the City of London. Various maritime treasures and colonial history to admire and understand.

    Visited this small but excellent museum tucked away on the south bank. Good fun with lots of information and some excellent life sized diorama's to keep the kids interested. There is some reasonable graphic descriptions of torture devices so beware if you are of a nervous disposition. Reasonable value and good fun.

    A little museum with a lot in it. A big plus is the tube driver simulator, which my son loved. If you are interested in the history of London over the last couple of hundred years then this is a great place to go.

    The exhibits are wonderful and the staff are brilliant especially at reception desk
    If there could be an improvement made it would having the shop re-opened on the ground floor next to the Coffee shop this is loved by my daughter and nephews when I return with something wacky or wonderful from the shop on my return from London
    Sadly this hasn't been the case for some time.

    I hope they return the shop soon and Richard the helpful gent who worked there.

    A fantastic array of specimens presented in this collection. Definitely a shout out to the past when such displays showed what we know about animals - and is our basis to what we currently know. The room isn’t very large, but you’ll spend an hour easily just looking at what’s there. If you love biology or zoology, this is a place in your to visit list. Entrance is free. Enjoy!

    If you have 30 minutes to spare, stop by the Mithraeum. You're put in a room to read and listen to a video about the ruins. They then allow you down into the actual ruins where you listen to some latin chants (no real context to them..) and then you're able to walk around a look at the ruins as the lights come up a bit.

    Informationally, it's not as robust as I would prefer, but definitely ask the front desk if they have a booklet. I was given one and it was helpful! They also have clean bathrooms for those of you looking for that!

    It’s a wonderful small museum just off New Bond St and Regent St. I’ve been meaning to go once they successfully merged the two homes of famous musicians. It’s well worth an hour an we can’t wait for the reopening in 2023. Treat both homes equally and you’ll learn so much. We did!
