Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This place is crazy you can’t believe it is in London!

    BAPS volunteers Nitesh & Nashmika Patel are amazing at giving us directions on what to see and look before entering this majestic temple :) It made us appreciate the importance of this historic site!

    Free bag deposit available, and no pictures allowed inside the temple. Very tourist friendly even though it is a working place of prayer with lots of people all the time.

    This is the most beautiful and peaceful place and I would urge anyone to go. Fantastic mosaic ceilings and beautiful marble like I’ve never seen before. There is a peaceful aura.

    No so much on the beaten track, but a few minutes walk off it - hot or rainy day? Get some relief here - it’s free and you’ll enjoy 90 minutes walking around if you’re a history buff - parts of the excavated foundations date back to the 12th century. It’s beautiful and there’s even an outdoor fun cafe in the courtyard.

    Great preaching and music at the 11 am sung Eucharist in a 900 year old church; a superb Anglican service of worship. And coffee, too.

    Difficult to realise how beautiful a church it is from the outside. Great artwork. Historically the spy Kim Philby would drop off info for his Russian handlers to collect - Behind the far left (facing Brompton Road) pillar.

    Located between Bank and Cannon Street stations it is easy to miss St Stephen's church. It is close to the Starbucks and if it was not for the fact it is an old building you would miss it.

    If you like old churches then you should probably hunt down this hidden gem.

    A truly beautiful and historic church. Whether you are religious or not, you will not regret visiting this gem. Step inside and enjoy a quiet moment of reflection, enjoy the magnificent architecture, peruse the books of dedication to fallen RAF. Then step outside and admire the statue of Dr. Johnson and survey the WWII shrapnel damage still visible on the building. So much history in one building in a part of a London that is awash with it, right on the border where the City of Westminster meets the City of London.

    If you’re fortunate enough to be here, as we were, when the bells play “Oranges and Lemons”, even better. They are played every day at 9 am, noon, 3pm and 6pm. (St. Clement Eastcheap is actually the church referenced in the song, but hey ho).

    There are also many great pubs and restaurants nearby to grab a drink or lunch/dinner.

    My wife and myself - together with 40/50 other guests - attended a Memorial Service - followed by a Tree Planting Ceremony - earlier today at the lovely Thai Buddhapadipa Temple in Wimbledon.

    The venue was perfect for such an important event and the Abbot (and his fellow monks) could not have done more to make the event such a successful one.

    It is not surprising that this is such a popular attraction with many guests returning on such a regular badus.

    You can find this lovely artistic church in Bride Lane just off Fleet Street. Saint Brides Church is named after an Irish Saint called Bride. She was the patron Saint of Ireland. It is also called the Journalist’s Church because it was located in the heart of the British Newspaper Industry. There has been a church at this point for centuries. The current building is it 8th reincarnation. The medieval church here was destroyed by the 1666 Fire of London. Christopher Wren designed a beautiful new church here. It’s layered spire inspired a baker to bake a multi tiered wedding cake for his bride thus starting a new tradition. The 1940 Blitz caused the next destruction. This revealed the ancient crypts and bones of thousands of people buried beneath this church. They were all preserved when Wren’s church was restored. Do visit this quaint church to see layers upon layers of history. Do not miss the Roman ruins in the basement.

    I popped in with a view to see a particular tapestry that is presently on display.
    The church is pretty and bathed in light. It is wonderful for a few moments of tranquility and quiet contemplation regardless of faith.

    Nearly 50 years after seeing the early foundations of the mosque being laid, I finally went inside. What an experience! My only complaint is that the website isn't half as warm, open and welcoming as the staff and other visitors were to us. So don't let that put you off. Allow plenty of time to walk round, yes, but also allow yourself space for spiritual reflection and openness . So many people were so pleased we visited and showed an interest and were ever so willing to answer questions and share their beliefs. Think: The bigots, racists and Little Englanders would hate you to visit a mosque. A good reason to do your bit for love, peace and understanding. A beautiful place.

    Friday prayer in the mosque was a delightful experience as expected. Due to renovation inside the mosque it was tight and packed, but we managed.

    Beautiful ancient church & glorious stained glass windows, at the end of what appears to be a private street, which in itself has some lovely buildings.
