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 Collection of Objects, pictures and drawings as well as a well preserved house.
    Lots to see, and staff were very friendly & helpful.
    No descriptions on items, but you can buy a guidebook.
    Free entry and worth a visit.

    A very interesting collection of medical and zoological specimens collected during the 18th and 19th centuries right up to examples of 20th century microsurgical robotic medical imstrumentation. Located in the Royal College of Surgeons by Lincolns Inn Fields, entrance is free but it is advisable to book if coming with a group of more than 5 to allow them to control the numbers.
    There is a small cafe so waiting I'd not unpleasant.
    Some of the specimens are a little gruesome so a word of caution for the sensitive or squeamish.

    When we arrived we thought it wasn't up to much, but how wrong we were!! Free entry but you need tokens for each game. We played a few games for the £9.00 x 10 tokens and it was worth every penny for the laughs.
    The machines are wacky and innovative. A lot of thought had gone into each one. We were laughing and smiling all the time. So was everyone else there.
    Great attraction and would definately recommend for all ages, if you are up for a laugh.
    Don't bother if you are sniffy and don't have a childish side to your sense of humour as you won't get it!

    A very interesting tour by June and afterwards we went into two of the courts in session which was fascinating. They finish at 4.30 but we would have loved to have gone back the next day but couldn't. There is also a self guided tour if you don't want to book a tour. There are no lifts in the building . Airport style security on entry.

    The ticket sales assistant, Hannah, went above and beyond when helping me transfer tickets to a voucher. Superb customer service! Thank you, Kate

    This is not a market in the same way as Borough Market or Greenwich Market. There are a few fairly cheap clothing stalls, selling stuff like jogging bottoms and socks. But the selling point of this place are the huge range of food stalls which spring up from about 12 noon to about 2.30.
    Fantastic range of food, a lot of it gluten-free from all around the world. Thai. Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, Brazilian, Portuguese etc etc.
    The portions are pretty decent but you can expect to spend about £8 (give or take) for a portion/box.
    If you show up at peak times, prepare to queue!

    In the courts. Lincoln's Inn is the biggest Inn and probably the most known! My visit here was very good, could spend more time walking around

    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.

    Came here to see And Juliet. Beautiful London theatre with a fantastic performance by the cast. Staff were friendly. Does get very warm in there, though, so be sure to get a cold drink before the show starts.

    My partner wanted to buy my engagement ring from Hatton Garden so we set out to research where to visit ahead of going.

    I reached out to a number of shops regarding having a bespoke ring made and we went along to our appointments.
    Each shop we visited felt like we were being over sold to (think cheesy car sales).

    The rings we were shown we nice but we just felt that there was nothing particularly special about any of them.

    Our last stop was to meet Vince at Hatton Garden Jewellers. I had read all the reviews and done research on HGJ so knew what to expect. There was no shop front and we were buzzed up to the workshop which was far more relaxing for us in that environment!

    Vince was great, he is a mastor of what he does and has a great team working with him. Vince took on our instruction along with our budget and gave us a number of options, we immediately knew we wanted to choose Vince to create the ring. We made a number of follow up appointments to choose our stones, we were talked through the quality v price and learnt alot in our visit.

    Vince takes so much pride in his work and will make sure you are 100% happy with your jewellery. We are already looking forward to returning for our wedding bands! Thank you Vince!

    Ok, LSE is not something you come to see. However, our daughter had studied here while in college in 2021 and we did not get to visit due to Covid. This trip was really to make up for that opportunity lost so we had to visit with her. It was an impressive campus and she showed us where she studied. Again, not something the average visitor come to see but important to us.

    Dan was 10/10. The service, communication and rings were amazing, he couldn’t have done anymore for us and we love our rings!

    Would recommend to everyone!
