    Didn't pay to go up to the top level, but just being on it and watching it day and night was amazing. Such a fantastic structure.

    This is an amazing peek into the heart of the UK’s struggles and victory over the Nazi aggression. Even teenagers will come away with some aspect of understanding.

    it's the second time we've been to the BM. What amazing things in there. Though i did find myself slightly uncomfortable walking around knowing that many of the artefacts there were plunders from various countries in the time when Britain ruled the world! Get there early - there were Q's from 9.20am. Opens at 10.

    One really feels the sense of history in this building.. though this "fifth" iteration really doesn't capture the full history of the cathedrals that have stood here. Definitely worth a visit.

    Went for a stroll round here whilst working near the market. There’s lots of stalls selling lunches and various fresh foods can be bought and taken home. It’s a nice market, but of a tourist trap, but definitely worth a visit

    BST Elton John in Hyde Park, stayed in a lovely apartment in knightbrigde close to the venue. If you get the chance to see a concert in Hyde Park, it's a must see. Beautiful venue, warning to hay fever sufferers, bring ample medication.

    This is an excellent and well maintained park with views over Buckingham Palace. Lovely in the sunshine - lots of ducks and pelicans to admire and a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of London.

    A vibrant spot, one of the best parts of London in my opinion. Teeming with people, amazing ambience, enjoyable, bright, the shops are great and the food is even better. Definitely a must-go for everyone!

    Really interesting tour, made all the better by our guide Phil Mansfield. If you get the chance to tour the buildings (which are far more impressive in the flesh), I hope you're lucky enough to have Phil. One of the wittiest & knowledgeable guides I've come across.

    Great market with so many food options. Lots of things to look at and buy too!

    It was busy but not over crowded. Definitely worth the visit.

    F-ing Wow! Having done the Shard at £30 a pop in April this was way better, and free. The 360 view is better (cleaner bigger windows) and open terrace. Booked in advance so just loved it when jumping the line. My son wanted to come at last minute (not in our party of six) but easily accommodated. Nearly made mistake of sneaking in food, big no no, but loads of places to eat before/after at Street level.

    It is spectacular and will return with the missus next time.

    Worth a morning walk and have breakfast if you like flowers and its free. Personally like it more than Kew Garden.
