    We visited here New Year’s Eve. We were booked in for 11.30am but were able to join the 11am tour as we got there early.

    Our tour guide Martin was brilliant! They are all volunteers and do the tours because they care about the cemetery.

    You get to see ancient tombs, forgotten memorials and stunning sculptures.

    We even got to go inside the crypt! Sadly the cedar tree was diseased and had to be removed. Another is growing, but it’ll take a long time to be as huge as its predecessor.

    You will not be bored on this tour.

    I recommend reading Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffengger. It’s based in and around this cemetery and is an excellent book.

    First time visiting for the collection. And I am very sorry that I missed the previous years when I visited London. Not enough time to see everything in a one day. Lots of things to see. Beautiful collection. Beautiful manor. Don't forget to have a cream tea and the cocktail at the café.

    What an incredible place! Spent a few days in London, and a true highlight was the Museum of Brands! So many memories! Icing on the cake was meeting the founder Robert Opie during the walk around. What an incredible person to have such vision and passion to have created such a wonderful collection. We will be back! And will 100% recommend a visit to friends & family….plus great little gift shop, cafe & garden.

    A lovely small and quiet cafe. Love the impressionists gallery and you can get close to the pictures to admire them. Not too busy so you can really appreciate the art. Lots of stairs but there is a lift. Good gifts in the shop which you don't need to purchase a ticket for.

    Our groups sixth visit to the Pantomime. What a great time, good food, great staff, fabulous show, as usual. Left aching because of continuous laughter! Can't wait to see Pinocchio and his Wooden Whopper.
    Can't recommend this institution enough. Brilliant day out.

    We very much enjoyed our guided Warehouse Tour yesterday. For us this was a return visit to the museum and this excellent indoor and outdoor tour added a new dimension to our understanding of Docklands history. With the help of our very knowledgeable guide we were able to imagine these buildings as a very busy working environmen. Highly recommended.

    It's a narrow but full of amazing artifacts and amazing pictures at this museum. Lots to see and could spend few hours easily. All handbags are to be put in the clear bag handed at the entrance. Clean toilets available on the ground floor. It's a free entrance.

    I went to a close-up magic show and it was spell-binding. :) We had a chance to have a short tour of the Magic Circle museum, by our host magician, before the show - and he told us a number of interesting stories about many of the different magicians who were members of the Magic Circle. The show itself involved 4 different magicians - each performing for a set amount of time. In most cases, they involved several members of the audience - which was fun because we got to talk to each other about the tricks later. None of us had any idea how we had been fooled.

    Additionally, the magicians are happy to chat between the acts, and after the show. It's a very relaxed atmosphere, and lots of chances to be amazed. They told us that the magicians often change between shows - so I'd love to go again, and see a different set of performances.

    Visited on a very cold day in January however the scenery was lovely.

    Really annoying to see people coming to the park with bags full of processed pellets for the fish and chucking the whole bag into the pond. We saw two couples dump a huge amount of 'food' in the space of 10 minutes. If people care so much about the animals, why don't you read the signs or educate yourself on what not to feed them?

    At the park there were peacocks too which surprised me! Well only two peacocks in the dark which seemed bored and lonely... again, there were groups of people 'feeding' them and making a ruckus.

    The museum was full of information and the walking tour was excellent. Learned not only about Jack the Ripper, but also the Victorian era, Whitechapel and the origins of sayings like rule of thumb and on tenterhooks. Our guide Sam was very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer lots of questions.

    It's a beautiful temple and well maintained. The volunteers are very friendly and supporting. Starting from the baggage counter,at gate, security volunteers, the in-house volunteers, all are very humble and cherry on the cake was meeting devotees Nitesh and Rashmika Patel. They interacted with our kids to educate them about Hindu traditions and learn virtues. Must visit for all for peace of mind and get the blessings🙏🙏

    A public part with pathway leadind to a hill. You can get a magnificent view of London from the top of the hill.
    The hill is a short walk from Camden town

    Small and authentic museum. Wonderful to experience the house where Dickens lived. The best assets of this museum are the staff who are knowledgeable and passionate about the world of Charles Dickens. Their contributions to the experience are invaluable and create a really immersive experience
