    These underground rooms were locked up for fifty years after the way. Now they are open to the public. What a treasure! These are the war rooms where Churchill and his military team ran the war for Britain. Really an exciting visit.

    Amazing building, strongly recommend taking the extra tour to go behind the scene, you get so much more information, you get to stand right by the historical wood throne, and go high up to get the birds view of the Abbey. Not to be missed.

    Such a lovely walk through the park with a good cafe in the middle and very close to the Mall and Buckingham Palace

    Wow! The great Westminster Hall! Built in 1097, every inch of the place seemed to reverberate with history and events and I felt that whatever little I have read and learnt from my history classes was coming back to life! The traial of King Charles I, the trial of Warren Hastings and the oration of Edmund Burke, maqny Kings and Queens lying in State, Tributes to Prime Minister Churchill and all had happened in this exonsive historic hall...
    Moving inside to the two Houses of Parliament with statues of some great leaders overlooking the visitors, the House of Commons where the Indian Independence Act was deliberated and passed in 1947... and much more...

    Fantastic access to so many rooms, to see where all the foreign dignitaries have and will be walking through when being greated by the Queen/King. Absolutely a must on your visit to London

    Most of the time the tube is a good option. Occasionally there are delays on the line, or the lift is not working, or the escalator is not working. Most of the signage is good, but in a few places it was confusing when trying to change from one line to another.

    The Mews was a highlight of our London visit, in part because it was so easy to see! Just a short walk from the Palace (good to do the two together), there was no line to enter and no real crowd (later that same day we were with hundreds of other people entering the Palace). There is a great audio tour which explains the history and significance of each of the carriages and shows times when each carriage was used for official royal purposes. One walks through the horse stables (we saw just one) and sees the courtyard area around the stables and the residences of the keepers. It doesn't take long, so plan about 30-45 minutes. There's a small gift shop at the end. If it is hot, take a bottle of water as it is quite sunny and hot. Happily, this was the only place in all of London that I encountered a water vending machine (as of Aug '22)!

    The mosaic artwork is magnificent and the cathedral is free (donations requested) whereas Westminster Abbey costs £25 for an adult and is not nearly as impressive.

    As part of the 3 ticket for £55 we were allocated the Japan collection first. It was interesting. It would be nice for the warrior outfits to be in cases you could see the back as well maybe.
    Personally if you want to see Buckingham palace staterooms book first slots in morning. Our time was 12.45pm on a July Thursday and it took ages to get in and far too many people in each time slot. The queens collection and mews were a very different experience.

    One of the less well known historic sites in London Banqueting House is a short walk from either the Houses of Parliament or Trafalgar Square. The £7 entrance fee is very reasonable and their is a guide book for £4.99. Below the main hall is the undercroft which shows a short but interesting introductory video. There are also toilets on this level. The main hall is up the stairs and as the main attraction is the ceiling painted by Rubens there are lots of ways to view it including large mirrors, computers and best of all bean bags where you can just lie back and gaze upwards. There is a complementary audio guide which tells you about the paintings and the fascinating history including how this is the only part of the palace of Whitehall that survives and the execution of Charles I.

    We went to see ‘Hamilton’ at this theatre. The layout of the theatre means that you get a great view from anywhere in the auditorium. The seats are comfortable and the theatre is very clean and well presented. The Stalls Bar is large but it could do with a few more tables and chairs - the service was good and the staff were friendly and professional.
    I had hurt my hip and was walking with a stick and one of the staff saw me joining the queue and immediately offered to take me through a side entrance to avoid the stairs. His customer service skills were excellent and he made me feel like he was concerned that I enjoyed my visit to the theatre. The staff are all clearly very well trained and like their jobs. A great experience. The show was very good as well!

    I have two horses so this was a must see for me. The highlight was being able to look into the stables, see the horses and see soldiers cleaning tack and mucking out. I also enjoyed trying on some of the uniform - the helmet is so heavy! There’s plenty of fascinating information and it’s great to see the horses out the front.
