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 is a must visit for any Arsenal fan. You dont even need to go into the stadium. There are TWO shops (yes, two...most tourists never go over to the shop closest to Arsenal tube station), a historic walk around the stadium, statues, canons, and murals...the list goes on. And guess what, you can do all of it for free! Well, kind of. If you go into the shops, good luck walking out with a few things!

    Another wonderful visit to The Charterhouse.

    Although I had done the longer tour previously, I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday's 1 hour tour (it was actually longer - probably 75 minutes) and it was conducted by a delightful and very knowledgeable guide. She was able to move quite a large group around the tour and keep us all informed of the important facts - and nice some nice little quirks too!

    Thanks also to the shop in the foyer for selling excellent and very pretty umbrellas. Our rainy-day visit was saved by buying two of them as we left and they kept us dry for the rest of our day in London.

    A fantastic experience! My partner and I would label ourselves as 'escape room enthusiasts' and the game we played (cQ:ORIGENES) was wonderful! We were really impressed with the theming of the venue and room itself. We were very happy with the room, which we found challenging, and had only a few padlock puzzles, utilising varied other mechanisms to progress through the room. This company is definitely family friendly too, while still being enjoyable for adults.

    Mante, our host, was also very lovely! This room really does deserve its TERPCA nomination.

    …whilst I don’t have an issue with bag checks the security should not be allowed to maul around your bag. I was also astonished and embarrassed to be asked to open my very small makeup bag that contained sanitary products. Surely this is taking it too far! For that reason, I am unsure if we will re-visit again in the future.

    A truly hidden gem of an attraction located approximately 5-10 mins walk from Kings Cross station. Definitely one of the kind museum! Easily managed to spend 1.5 - 2 hrs here and learnt so much regarding the history of London's canal network (including the ice industry - and ice cream too). Interactive activity on offer for the kids, along with films to view, and opportunities to take a boat trip as well (including a cream tea if you fancy).

    We did the James Bond experience, and enjoyed every minute of it. The game is well thought out and we enjoyed taking in some of London sites as well as off the beaten track. I would highly recommend it. The only downside side was bumping into other groups along the way. We are looking forward to booking another one

    The best free comedy you’ll see in London! Angel Raw is an institution and always delivers. New acts, established comics doing new material and always a fun and friendly vibe. The Sunday night show in particular is a great way to round off a weekend.

    This was an incredible experience! Hibah was an excellent host. Absolutely loved it, the game was satisfyingly challenging and the whole design was so realistic. We played The Darkest Hour and as a couple which was hard but we (just) managed to do it with a minute to spare and we've done many of these! Thank you for such a great day, particularly Hibah and all of Enigma Escape. On to the next one!

    I organised a trip to the Wesley chapel and museum, the group of Methodists from the Sleaford circuit. We all thoroughly enjoyed the visit and our guide Joan Drummond was brilliant and very knowledgable. I highly recommend the guided tour to this historic place.

    One of the most interesting of the smaller London museums. The history of the Order of St John is absolutely fascinating, as is the history of St John's gate. The garden is absolutely lovely, too, a real hidden gem.

    Loved it. We got tickets last minute as it was near where we staying. King Lear was phenomenal. Loved the bar area & staff were very friendly. Wish I lived near this place.

    Driver was at the airport ready for our arrival. Driver was courteous and helpful. Nice Mercedes C class.
    For the return journey the driver arrived exactly on time, nice car and his driving style was careful and considerate.
    Could not fault anything with this company, outstanding service.
