    Best plan what you want to see before you go. Very busy at time of visit but no no queue to get in. Great to see the Sunflowers, Blue Boy and Monets

    The British Museum remains as good as ever but is SO busy it becomes a bit of a mission to visit.

    I cannot understand why there should be three separate shops. It took me ages to track down some Egyptian tut for a grandchild.

    The cafe is too busy and chaotic to be comfortable except for a much needed pitstop.

    This museum is incredible. The Cast room is amazing but my favorite was to see all the fine jewels including the Londonberry Jewels and many others. I really enjoyed this and then had a nice spot of lunch in the courtyard watching kids play in the fountain.

    Can't believe that this is free - in London! On a rainy day we spent three or four rather educational hours wandering around this museum in a beautiful building.

    One of the most relaxed, memorable days in London - we wanted our kids to appreciate the green space in London and were not disappointed. Beautiful grounds, chairs to sit, swans, views, a treehouse, and the fountain for Princess Di's memory, a gathering spot for children of all ages. Truly a joy with so many things to do and relax.

    I just been amazed, this park is a kind of magical, is alike a Disney old style cartoon, where the nature and animals are living in a very happy harmony, and also where your mind take a rest, this is my opinion.

    Nice place to visit in London, around the market you can see street artists, and there is a variety of restaurants candy stores, antiques and other shops in the market. There is a courtyard downstairs with some French food restaurants where you can get cheese and charcuterie boards with wine and there are always performers playing or singing good mimuaice. Nice area to amealhar around, just watch for pick pockets as this area has quite a bit of incidents due to the high tourist traffic. No other crimes or violence other than that, the area is safe.

    Camden Market had a variety of food stalls and cafes. It seemed that the people come to eat, rather than do any shopping as the food stalls had a variety of food from different countries (Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Venezuelan, Indonesian, Indian, American, British etc food stalls) limited menus but quite an array! All the stalls accepted card only. There were trinket, T-shirts, Jewelery shops also in the Market, but main attraction was the food!! Great way to spend a nice sunny day in London! (We took the London Waterbus from Little Venice to Camden Market, and on the way back, we took the bus, the bus stop is close by).

    Myself and a friend visited the Sky Garden on a weekday (dry weather) in June 2022.

    Pros:
    -Free entry - we had pre-booked tickets, but walk-ins (30-45 minutes) were available.
    -Airport style bag checks.
    -Two fast lifts to floor 35. A one minute journey.
    -Modern glass and metal architecture in top floor location.
    -Plentiful seating: tables & chairs and sofas.
    -Fantastic panoramic views, including ‘Francis Golding Open-Air Terrace’ covered outdoor area (glass is labelled with the major sites).
    -Nice array of plants in two banked sections.
    -Toilets (including accessible toilet).
    -Sky Pod Bar selling hot drinks, alcoholic drinks and food.
    -There is also a brasserie, a restaurant and an additional bar.

    Cons:
    -Sky Pod Bar - wait for hot drinks, as only one member of staff working on her own.
    -Sky Pod Bar - ‘discretionary Service Charge’ added to bill. We only realised later when we checked the receipt.
    -WiFi not working during my visit.

    Notes:
    -There are also sunset and sunrise events and live music events.
    -A staff member told us to hire the venue for a private event is £350,000 minimum spend!

    Worth a morning walk and have breakfast if you like flowers and its free. Personally like it more than Kew Garden.

    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.

    It is a truly remarkable location, the Greenwich Park is lovely, wast, fabulous old trees, acacia valley, flower section garden, tennis court section if you wish to play, it is an oasis in the city if you are lucky you can spot a deer (mainly in the morning). Greenwich Maritime and planetarium are worth visiting too. Sincerely recommend.

    We really enjoyed our time at this museum. The items they have procured for this museum are absolutely fascinating. I was stunned by many of the items. We went through both the WWI and WWII galleries. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to see all of the galleries. We spent @ 2 1/2 hours there, which also included the 40 minute Bedlam to Baghdad guided tour. I highly recommend the tour. Our guide was excellent. Only wish I had had time to include the Holocaust guided tour during our visit. I probably could’ve used another hour or two in order to see everything that I wanted to see. The museum is free, but we did secure our tickets online beforehand. The guided tour was 20 pounds for 2 adults, which we also purchased ahead of time online.

    Great place to visit and very informative. Just a short walk from the tube station. Unfortunately the flight simulators were broken when we arrived. The RAF have funded the entire F35 programme from the profits of the cafe. Over £3 for a plain cheese sandwich !!!!! Bring your own food to avoid this total rip off. There were plenty of toilets and all in all a very good attraction.
