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.

    Our visit to the British Museum was a captivating journey through history and cultures. The vast collection of artifacts from around the world left us in awe. The museum's layout and exhibits were well-curated, providing a seamless and enriching experience.

    My adult son and I popped in because we were in the area - free to enter and no tickets or pre-booking needed. Neither of us are particularly into art but we both really enjoyed the visit. There is a lot to see and you can just wander about. The cafe looked reasonably priced - we checked for a future visit and the shop was also interesting. We ran out of time but will be returning.

    I booked these tickets a while ago, we were both looking forward to seeing the exhibits.
    Well organised and laid out, the outfits were in great condition.
    My wife is a huge Chanel fan, I have learned about her by osmosis over the years, so it was interesting to see the real deal.
    The jewellery was stunning and I now have a lot to live up to for birthday gifts, oh dear.
    Great lunch in the restaurant, it was so busy, but food was good and it made more of the day.
    Huge success, my wife loved every second.

    First time visiting for the collection. And I am very sorry that I missed the previous years when I visited London. Not enough time to see everything in a one day. Lots of things to see. Beautiful collection. Beautiful manor. Don't forget to have a cream tea and the cocktail at the café.

    Fun place to visit for a couple of hours, a mix of some great works of art and the usual nonsense you get in modern art (there's a canvas just painted white, another one painted blue and a Matisse that my 7year old said he could have done) but that's all part of the fun.

    And best of all most of it is free to visit!

    Stop the whinging this is well worth a visit. The gallery has a wide range of pictures from all periods and so something for all.
    Us men have to respect the toilets and I am sure if we are careful, we can do it without making a mess!!! A sign at the entrance specifically regarding the toilets might help those decide what floor to go to!!🤔

    Usually going for the exhibitions it makes a change to look instead at a variety of the classic British stuff from the eighteenth and nineteenth century in the permanent collections and find an eclectic mix.

    A lovely small and quiet cafe. Love the impressionists gallery and you can get close to the pictures to admire them. Not too busy so you can really appreciate the art. Lots of stairs but there is a lift. Good gifts in the shop which you don't need to purchase a ticket for.

    It's a narrow but full of amazing artifacts and amazing pictures at this museum. Lots to see and could spend few hours easily. All handbags are to be put in the clear bag handed at the entrance. Clean toilets available on the ground floor. It's a free entrance.

    The free displays on the ground floor were presented well and very interesting. The Burtynsky exhibition was breathtaking and very thought provoking. I loved the atmosphere of the whole building.

    I went to a Christmas concert, full of lovely carols around half of which were audience carols which I very much enjoyed. The quality of the orchestra was great and the singers too (though a surprisingly small choir).
    I found it surprising how many miserable looking members of the audience there were ; the tickets are not cheap so it makes no sense to me why people would be there who clearly dislike singing carols!?
    In terms of venue the area around it is not appealing and the venue itself is lacking toilets and the ladies were smelling and poorly maintained. But this did not diminish my enjoyment of the concert : )

    A Google search for a day out brought up this house that we had never heard of.
    In easy reach of Kensington High Street and Olympia.
    Fair pricing compared with the national Trust.
    The only things that stopped it getting a 5 was the dark lighting in the toilets area and the audio visual film being stuck in a basement alcove with hardly any seating.

    One of my favourite places in London despite not having too many pieces in the permanent collection. There are a few note worth paintings and a michael Angelo sculpture but not too many. There were a couple of exhibitions when we visited but they didn’t intrigue me enough to visit.

    That being said, I followed course a couple years back and that was just an amazing experience. I love visiting their gift shop. Always find little gift items and souvenirs.

    Great value 'backstage' tour. We were unlucky that the weather was dreadful as you need to duck in and out of the building but we had a lovely, knowledgeable guide. Shared some great 'fun-facts'. Very enjoyable way to learn about the history of a fascinating building. Highly recommended. One word of warning: there are quite a few stairs to climb!
