    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.

    Amid the quiet opulence of worn stone monuments that are sometimes building-sized themselves, this cemetery had me captivated from the start. Although I didn't expect the guided tour of the West Cemetery to be the price it was, VERY glad that I paid to do it. Our guide Peter was spectacular and pointed out markers/history that I would have missed completely if doing the place on my own. Do yourself a favor and allow at LEAST two hours to see everything!

    A place to get in contact with nature. Take a time to visit the Pergolado, observe the flowers and get peaceful.

    Saw the temple on social media and decided to visit. Walked from Wembley Park station (about 25 mins) and walked down a local residential road towards the temple. From afar you can see the higher delicacies of the temple as you walk towards it. Once you do get to see it upfront, it is incredibly stunning and every detail is immaculate. We were unsure of how to get in (we’re not of the Hindu faith and this was not a local temple) so we felt a little awkward on making the first move. Luckily we saw Rashika and her lovely husband (both devotees at the temple) who gave us a lovely introduction to the history of the temple, it’s meaning and purpose and an understanding of what we would be going to see when we go in. It was a lovely conversation and incredibly welcoming. Made us feel very comfortable. The deities were not on show as they were “sleeping” because we arrived a little later in the day. If we came in the morning, we could have seen the morning ritual. We saw the insides of the temple instead which was still stunning regardless. Very well managed area. High-security (almost airport like) and you can’t take in your own water or a large bag. There is a small building opposite to leave your belongings and the temple staff take care of it accordingly. Was a very smooth process getting in however. Shoes off, of course when you do go inside. There is a dedicated shoes rack for both men and women. There is a gift and souvenir shop as well which is nice if you’d like to buy items handcrafted from India itself.

    Holland Park is an area of Kensington. The same name lush park covers 22 hectares of it.

    Here you can find a cafe, the Belvedere Restaurant attached to the orangery, a giant chess set, a cricket pitch, tennis courts, two Japanese gardens - the Kyoto Garden and Fukushima Memorial Garden, a youth hostel, a children's playground, squirrels, peacocks, and several sculptures.

    On our visit, many flowers were blooming beautifully.

    Highly recommended on a sunny afternoon/evening. The view over the skyline of London is unique and perfect for being together with friends. Many young people, great ambience.

    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

    The northern half of Brick Lane has become a hipster area whilst the southern half of Brick Lane remains a great palace for a curry. There a several vegan restaurants such as What the Pita, Mooshies, and the Canas Cafe (which is just off Brick Lane) on the lane. The Sunday afternoon flea market ob Bricklane is not to be missed. Unfortunately, Camden Town has much deteriorated since the 80s and is now just a tourist trap that is best avoided.

    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.

    Lovely day at this oasis, a gorgeous central spot showcasing historical botanical treasures. The cafe was lovely with rustic tables overlooking the lawns. Morning cakes were excellent and we even came back for a nice lunch after the tour. Amazing well spent 4 hours; thank you team.

    We took the underground to Monument Station and a ten minute walk to get there. This beautiful ruin of a church; with so much history, was tucked away behind big streets and surrounded by big buildings. It was so calming and peaceful to stroll around the beautiful, ruin and it’s garden.
