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.

    I live in London and have the Historical Palaces Pass so I may have the pleasure of visiting the Tower and other palaces at my leisure. The Tower is closest to me, so I do visit often. I enjoy the grounds and the history. I love listening to the tourists as they speak of the history they are learning .. because of this, each visit is so different.
    A must visit for every visitor to England. Highly recommend the Historical Palaces Pass.

    Get tickets to the Life in the Roman Army exhibit!! I wrote a term paper on the Roman Army over 40 years ago (feels like it was closer to when they were actually around!). In the decades since, I've been a closet fan. This was the first time I got to see this exquisite of a collection of authentic equipment. The exhibits were well thought thru and highly recommended. By the time we got finished and went into the museum proper, we were shocked by the transformation from well managed flow to insane crowds. After less than an hour of finishing the show, we were gone. Couldn't handle the hordes. If you have the time, and the patience, this is a phenomenal museum full of priceless art & artifacts.

    It's a giant, fast-moving observation wheel, so we got a 360-degree perspective of London that changed with every second. We spotted tons of famous landmarks and even caught a glimpse of Buckingham Palace. If you want a breezy and unique way to check out the city, the London Eye is a great way to spend an afternoon.

    I liked the museum, but after so many of the same scenes, the paintings just blended into one another. It wasn’t what I was expecting. I guess I’m not really into that kind of art.

    On the flip side, I was in awe while looking at one of the original Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and Monet’s Water Lillies. I enjoyed the more modern art and while there were only a few of these pieces compared to the classical art, these paintings made the trip worth it.

    The museum is beautiful and Trafalgar Square is a great place to watch people.

    We were in London for a few days and tower bridge was close to our hotel. It’s a good attraction if you only have an hour or so to spare. Reasonable price for London attractions. Great view from the viewing platforms with glass floors to see the road and river below. Lift available to the top and a good few facts to read as you walk around. Worth a visit.

    My favourite museum in the world.

    My wife and I spent three hours in here doing our own thing given we have different areas of interest. We could probably spend another three hours there to get complete coverage.

    Something for everyone. Lots of photo ops.

    And it's all free.

    Highly recommended for those who like decorative arts, and history.

    On a Friday afternoon my family and I took a very educational visit to the National History Museum. Like the Science Museum (which is only a few minutes away) it is a short walk from South Kensington Station. The exhibits I enjoyed most were the dinosaurs, history of evolution and the back story behind the Egnigma code. Unfortunately many of the exhibits were cramped with people and the food was way overpriced, I also found the History Museum was more of a Science Museum! Overall after having been to both the Science and History Museums, I would say History was the best. The visit was well worth it 👍👍👍👍.

    We enjoyed our time greatly at the Churchill war rooms. The audio guide was a little confusing to figure out when we got into the museum part, but once we got back into the bunkers it worked great. Lots of interesting history about this time period and Churchill himself. I would recommend reading the book “The Splendid and the Vile” before going as it gives a lot of background to this place.

    Definitely a must visit while in London. All the stone tombs made it seem a little chilling, but then seeing the tombs of kings you only read about in history books was kind of cool. It didn’t have the worshipful ambience of St. Paul’s Cathedral, and I can’t imagine actually going to church there, but it was wonderful to tour. Don’t miss the coronation chair at the very end like we did! We obviously weren’t paying attention to our map. We did the queen’s galleries and it was nice but nothing spectacular. If you use their gallery guide it’s more interesting. The audio guide worked great for us.

    I've travelled across the railway lines above Borough Market hundreds of times and spent a lot of time in London, but this was one place that had always escaped me until now. We visited on a weekday afternoon and had a pleasant wander round the market looking at all the different stalls. There is a wide variety of food available but sadly it is very busy and in some ways spoilt by tourism now - in it's heyday it must have been an amazing place. However, it's bustling and gives a great taste of both British and international cuisine.

    Certainly worth a visit, but can be expensive and busy.

    Serene, well kept, soothing place to walk around peacefully.
    The chirping of the birds, the calmness of the lake, the breeze in your hair... It's all so magical

    This market is amazing! You could easily spend a whole day here. So many food stalls it's ALMOST overwhelming. They definitely have something for every appetite. And so many awesome vendors selling every item imaginable. If you're into vintage items this would be right up your alley. Overall the market is a vibe and worth checking out if you're in London. I cannot wait to return!

    We booked directly with UK Parliament English Guided tour which was very reasonable at 33.00 each compared to some of the websites advertising walking tours of the Houses of Parliament. We were warmly welcomed into Westminster hall and our tour guide was excellent. She had the right balance between information and humour and the 1.5 hours went very quickly. We learned a lot of things about Parliament which we didn't know before. Highly recommend

    Big Ben was one of my 'must do' places in London. I loved it! It was so lovely to see, it's even nicer than I expected but not as big as I expected.

    We didn't do the tour but I was delighted just to see it. Definitely worth going along to see it.

    Covent Garden is a gem in the centre of London. A lovely market full of interesting shops and stalls that manages to merge the traditional with contemporary and not be at all tacky. We stopped at Covent Garden by chance really, we had no plans to go there but were extremely pleased that we did. An excellent couple of hours, a nice bit of lunch made the visit very enjoyable.
    Recommended.
