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 was a great way to get to see some of the London sights without the time to individually see each of them. We had fun walking along the river at night immersed in the crowd and seeing the lights. We didn’t try any of the food, but it smelled amazing. There were some great buskers. Very enjoyable.

    Very enjoyable walk but we got a lost a couple of times as the sign posting was not that terrific. We had a map that saved us but a lot of it was by chance. It is quite a long walk but again very enjoyable.

    Beautifully kept park that’s really well maintained and clean.
    We walked through on a hot sunny September day.
    Loads of people playing tennis, using the outdoor gym and children playing in the park, lovely to see it buzzing with people.
    It’s an oasis in the middle of Southwark.
    If in the area it’s worth a visit.

    A friend took me to Granary Square, close to Kings Cross Station, which is clearly developing into a hip, social and commercial district full of contemporary restaurants - e.g. Dishoom - with bars and design shops too. A portion of the square is taken up by fountains to the fore of a University of the Arts London building, canalside steps by the river and an area where pop-up amphitheatres take centre stage during the warmer months.

    The fountains are very cool to look at and picture during the nighttime and the warehouse-converted buildings are made up of workplaces, shops and hipster coffee houses.

    This will no doubt become an even more animated and vibrant area as the development continues nearby.

    The Thames Path is amazing and runs for miles along both sides of the Thames River. Lots of restraints and bars and sightseeing. Very enjoyable.

    The area contains one of the busiest transport interchanges in London and the United Kingdom, including the listed railway station and the underground station, as well as Terminus Place, which is a major hub for bus and taxi services. Victoria Coach Station, 900 yards (800 metres) southwest of the railway station, provides road-coach services to long-distance UK and continental destinations.

    Victoria Street runs on an east–west axis from Victoria station to Broad Sanctuary at Westminster Abbey. Cardinal Place, across the street from Westminster Cathedral, opened in 2006 and contains a selection of restaurants, banks and shops, including a Marks and Spencer store. Further along the street, there is a large House of Fraser department store

    Quite a hilly but nice walk up across Hampstead Heath. The view of central London is beautiful and Hampstead in general is a lovely area. This is a great spot for relaxing or a picnic too.

    If you are visiting London to see the sites that are not on the main tourist path then this is for you. A short narrow cobbled street eith some houses incredibly narrow where they had been built in the space between 2 roads. Very pretty and quite despite being so close to major attractions

    Mesmerizing work of glittering bling bling art made with millions of crystals.
    The only frustration was not being able to get near to get a better photo because the installation is in the middle of four lane traffic from 360 degrees.
    Not sure if it is still there now as I went ages ago and google street maps doesn't seem to have it.

    Newly replanted and with a striking new modern sundial, Canonbury Square Garden is an urban retreat. I think some action must have been taken to deter the kipping Deliveroo drivers that dominated the benches. I can’t really blame them, but they were an awful eyesore and made it difficult for residents to enjoy.

    The murals are changing daily so there is always sonething new to see. Despite being in a grotty tunnel beneath the railway station it's now full of people, street artists doing their thing, locals walking by and tourists taking pictures. Theh are also a couple of bars and venues which have open in the archway. Highly recommend the board café for a game night with a group of friend or just a quick drink
