    If you enjoy history this is the perfect place. I would recommend booking in advance and doing an earlier time slot as it does get busy fast. It took us 4 hours to complete it all.

    They offer free audio guides to everybody which made it a very interactive experience

    We spent several hours here and only scratched the surface. There are over 2,000 paintings spanning between the 13th century and 19th century. To see them all would take multiple days. Even though the museum is in Trafalgar Square (one of London’s business areas) tunnels from the metro lead to an entrance without ever having to go into the square. It is open 361 days a year and, since it is free, there is generally a crowd. We were there on a Saturday, and it was very busy, but it is large enough that it doesn’t seem packed. Since you can’t see everything, it is a good idea to make a list of the paintings you want to see beforehand. Even if you're not a big art person, the interior architecture of the building is beautiful and worth seeing. (PaM)

    The website said there was a timed entry. No one ever checked. The tube stations are all about a 14 minute walk. Great place!

    A wonderful museum .

    Took my 19yr old son on a rainy day and we both enjoyed it.

    Sadly missed out on the Feberge exhibition as it’s a separate ticket event

    This was on my bucket list for a very long time and as an Arsenal fan my expectations were really high - but it was even better than I expected. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. I had a great time and I recommend this tour. The prices are reasonable and the fan shop has a lot of things to buy to remember this day.

    Amazing venue, the afternoon was really good and service was excellent. We were a part of 20 people and Ernest in particular was absolutely brilliant, he was very attentive and always available despite the volume of people at the venue.

    Spent an amazing few hours at the Imperial War Museum........ and could have spent a lot longer.

    Brings the whole history and horror of war to life. Brilliant display of vehicles and ordinance in the open atrium and floors dedicated to WW1 & WW2, plus a Holocaust exhibition (over 14 years olds only)

    Opportunity to experience an Anderson shelter and learn all about the war effort.

    Great educational asset and it is free admission

    So much to see that you should allow plenty of time. Getting so close to many iconic aircraft is great. The whole experience is well laid out and easy to get around. Small charge for parking but entry to the museum is free. Amazing value!

    This famous art gallery is only a few minutes walk from Pimlico tube station and Vauxhall Bridge in London. It is a fine collection of British art, paintings, sculptures and other artistic media. We were fortunate whilst visiting London to see a wonderful display of modern art from Hew Locke entitled The Procession - great fun in interpretation and enjoyed the various figures and outfits. The paintings are wonderful and the collection of the works of Turner renowned worldwide. It was a revealing exercise to see his earlier work and scenes of Europe let alone his famous water and sea works. A gallery we wished particularly to view contained the late 19th century works showing The Doctor from Fildes and Ophelia of Millais. Even the central staircase case is a lovely work of art. It is worth a visit and allow 2 hours to see most major items. There is a very nice cafe and, of course, a well stocked shop on site. Entry for general viewing is free but it is worth making a donation to help with the upkeep.

    It was nice experience. Although I did not get to see the main court but court one was nice too. The shopping was good the washrooms were clean. There is nothing much to do here but it was worth £13
