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.

    The view is excellent. Worth the climb. You could probably get a better view from surrounding tower blocks but not the sense of history. The polished staircase by thousands of visitors before you.

    Love the Bomber Command memorial. It’s a very powerful construction that was unbiased on the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

    Coming here is unlikely to be the highlight of your trip, but Trafalgar Square is one of those sights that you will end up ticking off the list!

    It is centrally located between various West End and tourist sights, so easy to build into a walking itinerary.

    Used to be well known for pigeons, but they've done something to them as there wasn't a pigeon to be seen on our visit.

    You can’t miss it outside of Buckingham palace. Beautifully renovated for the jubilee and very gilded. So many tourists now in London. Business as usual.

    This imposing war memorial is located on Whitehall. It has become the place for remembrance events in Britain since the First World War.

    The memorial was unveiled in 1920 as the national memorial to the British and Commonwealth dead of the First World War. In 1946, it was rededicated to include also dead of the Second World War.

    Cenotaph means literally 'Empty tomb'. This memorial has become a central point for all those whose family and friends had died during the First World War with no known grave.

    There's a great deal of history to this place, and it's nicely explained on the first two floors. The less said about the modern art display of the top floor is a bit of a turn off, for me at least, but it's made up for by the views from the platform at the top.

    The Albert Memorial, in my opinion, is one of the most unique parts of Hyde Park (located at the southern boundary of the park near Kensington Palace). I had never seen a monument of its intriguing shape before. It seemed to be kept clean and maintained. Photo ops are great here!

    Don't miss this impressive artwork . It deserve to spend couple of minutes to find this statue in the Eurostar train station. And take a look at the bass-reliefs situated on the base of the statue. Reason why we must meet or leave someone. And a lot of humor.

    I didn't even know this memorial existed by when walking through Hyde Park from Marble Arch recently I stumbled across it. A large panoramic format memorial with engraved stonework depicting animals in war (elephants, camel, horses, etc.) along with a couple of statues of mules or donkeys carrying war hardware. It really is a nice landmark.

    This striking bronze statue of a man on horseback was made by English artist George Frederic Watts. He worked on this for some twenty years, from 1883 until his death in 1904.

    The cast in Kensington Gardens was erected in 1907 by Watts’ widow and friends as a memorial to the artist himself, who had lived for many years in Kensington.

    We passed by here on our way to the Princess Diana fountain. Very nice statue, set back from the path, everyone stopped to admire Peter!

    This is a respectful, tall sculpture of the former British Prime Minister found in front of the House of Commons. The Square itself is peppered with monuments and other statues immortalising key figures in British history, however, the Churchill monument is perhaps the best known here.

    What an interesting statue located at Marble Arch near Hyde park.

    You don't know how big it is until you get up close and personal.

    Standing at 10 metres high , it is the largest free-standing bronze sculpture in London.

    We saw it while doing the London site seeing bus tour.

    Cleopatra’s Needle appears in many locations around the world for the strangest reasons. Not sure why the Thames bank was picked!
