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.

    Great day out for the historian in our family. Not cheap but worth the visit.
    Plenty to see and do. Can't miss the crown jewels.

    Really worth coming here. Especially when the sun is setting. If you have lunch or dinner you get access to the skygarden

    We were on a group tour of the city and sadly we only had enough time to visit the gift shop. The outside architecture is beautiful and I was able to find a few Christmas ornaments which I purchased.

    Blink and you might miss it, but if you’re on your way from to the South Bank from the East End then it’s definitely worth a visit.

    We didn't get any free tickets for the Sky Garden, Horizon 22, so we opted for the early morning queue here, but surprisingly there wasn't a long queue.
    The view from the top was well worth it. We would have liked to have a drink in the cafe, but it wasn't open yet. It would be nice if the restaurant opened at the same time as the garden.

    I visited the Barbican Art Galley to see "Unravel: The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art". The exhibit featured 50 works made of textiles. These works were quite powerful.
    There was a hand-stitched appliqué blanket titled "No chance (WHAT A YEAR)". It was made in 1999 by Tracey Emin to give voice to her feelings as a 13-year-old girl in 1977, the year a man raped her. A quilt titled "Sweven" was made in 2022 by Sanford Biggers. It draws on quilts being used as 'code' to signpost routes for enslaved freedom seekers on the Underground Railroad. There even were sculptures made of rope. "Pakshi", which means bird in Sanskrit, was made in 1985 by Mrinalini Mukherjee by twisting and knotting ropes found in local markets in New Delhi. This fascinating exhibit runs until 26 May.

    Typical Templar church. The interior is understated elegance. On the ground of the round church, there lied some statues of Templar knights. Among them, there is "the greatest knight that ever lived" - William Marshal, who was invested into the order of the Knights Templar on his deathbed.

    The “Da Vinci Code” trend has faded. There are not many tourists, it is tranquil and serene.

    This area was originally the territory of the Knights Templar and is now the Inner Temple and Middle Temple Inns of Court. In addition to the church, there are Middle Temple Garden, Inner Temple Garden, and some beautiful small atrium gardens.

    Good place to take photos and to get a sense of history. Not very large area at all. You will likely see influencers and/or amateur models have the pictures taken there, which can be a little annoying because they may occupy one prime photo spot for 30 minutes or longer.

    A nice museum to spend 1 hour understanding the history of the bank of England , you can download a audio guide or the guide on your phone , some good information, interactive items for both young & old. A couple of video presentation with seating and the highlight of lifting the 13 kilo gold bar. The gift shop has a good variety of gifts, the staff are pleasant and the museum is worth a visit

    Having walked past here on a number of occasions over the years,we decided to go in. The interior ground floor is very interesting and light and airy. There are two sets of stairs to the crypt, and we found the stairs with no signage,so we were unaware it led to a crypt. Having gone downstairs, there is a fascinating display of often unrelated bits of the history of London. These include the remains of a Roman floor,a commemorative plaque celebrating the baptism of William Penn (founder of Pennsylvania who was baptised here), and a statute from 900AD. Well worth 45 mins of your time.

    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.
