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.

    An educational, fun experience for everyone. Our guide, Suzy, was exceptionally well informed and brought history alive with anecdotes and her way of explaining.

    PROS
    * The main focus of political and historical London
    * packed in here are the most amazing tourist sites that are all essential for a visitor to London- from Westminster Bridge past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben to Parliament Square, Westminster Abbey, the UK Supreme Court and on through St. James Park to Buckingham Palace and other royal stuff and then down The Mall through Admiralty Arch to everything in Trafalgar Square.

    CONS
    Too much "stuff" to ever do in only one or two days

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    ... because I visited each and every one of those things that I mentioned above- and more- see all of my "helpful" individual reviews and photos of those separate attractions.

    WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
    The stroll through the Westminster area is free.

    WOULD "I VISIT THIS PLACE" AGAIN?
    For aure- every visit to London must include some if not all of the places here.

    ADVICE
    As stated, you must come here- no visit to London is complete without it.

    Chinatown is a must-visit for all visitors to London. It's part and parcel of the unique experience of visiting the city.
    Located in the fashionable, restaurant-laden area of SOHO, it's very easy to get to by bus and train. There are tons of options for meals.

    Some in our party were driven to find recommended establishments for bubble-tea, pastries, baos, roast meats and other Asian foods based on popular tiktok videos.

    We could instantly tell those food places as the lines were longest there including places like Sakurado, Yunique, Good Friend Chicken, Bun House, Bunsik, Chinatown Bakery and so many others. Everyone has their fave places and bucket list as a young visitor that you can tick and then post to social media. Such is the way it is these days.

    You can easily spend half a day here if eating and social media if your thing!

    As I was staying in Shoreditch, Brick Lane wasn't that far to walk from my hotel. I was very lucky with the weather and went there early on a Sunday morning so it wasn't too busy. The Lane has plenty of cafe's restaurants, shops and boutiques, but is famous for the street art which is incredible. Well worth a visit if you are in that part of London.

    Fantastic place to visit, stay, explore and also eating. We stayed in Canary Wharf over bank holiday and it didn’t disappoint. You have the Elizabeth line which is impressive. Plenty of eateries around and perfect place to stay with families

    Little Venice is a wonderful canal that provides a range of interesting boats and great views. The best time to visit is in the warmer months as the place is truly alive. Heading for sunset and evening gives a mixture of contrasting colours and the bright lights of the area. It is close to food and drink establishments. There are some activities that are available including tours and boat trips. It is great for walking and enjoying nature. Highly recommended.
