    We visited for the fantasy exhibition and it was absolutely superb. As a huge fan of fantasy, fairy tale and gothic I could have spent all day there. Our two young children enjoyed it too. This is a great place - but not five stars as it was impossible to get a drink and a sit down in any of the cafes. One was shut entirely, the others had very limited seating/were very busy. It was just a shame as we really wanted a drink a rest before staying longer but ended up leaving and going somewhere else.

    A must for any Disney fan! I was pleased to see some of the films that made my childhood memorialised, such as Enchanted! There were great photo opportunities and my family and I loved pointing out bits we remembered from different movies and our trips to Disneyworld.

    The only drawback is when we visited, on a Saturday, it was extremely busy and you would have to queue to see some of the main exhibits and take photos of them. It was like a human traffic jam walking around at points! As an autistic visitor, I found it somewhat overwhelming but this was combatted with relatively low lighting.

    We visited with free tickets to the cake and bake show, which was combined with the Ideal Home Xmas show. It was beautifully decorated for Xmas, a snow machine outside, a Santa inside and a life size Santa in cake.
    It was really crowded and hard to move around. They also need more toilets - although less of a queue if you use the ladies upstairs!
    Lots of stalls - but nothing different or usual, some were just irrelevant and weird - who wants double glazing or a doorbell for Xmas?
    Some stallholders like the paws one was rude because I don't have a dog!
    Cake and bake was better but again, nothing different! Some good demos on the two stages but you could not see what they were doing.
    Interesting couple of hours but really pleased we did not pay to get in!

    The visa application process is rather daunting at the outset. One could imagine that the UK and Russia were at loggerheads However, that been said, the staff at the Tourist Office did what was asked, efficiently and politely and I now have my visa. I still can't go but will get there one day, after all ,I've only been waiting 40 years.

    Brilliant. Love the space, was well thought out to go with the light and sound. Each room had a unique work of art where the light and space was very different from the other spaces.

    You can find this lovely building in South Kensington, an area which was nicknamed Albertopolis after the beloved husband of Queen Victoria. It is situated near the Albert Hall and faces the Kensington Park. It was treat to visit this unique society’s headquarters. So many expeditions were planned, funded and given royal patronage here. This is the place which led to so many discoveries. The exhibits, stories and ambience here are truly amazing and inspiring. The tales of those adventurous people who led their teams into the arctic, jungles, seas, volcanoes, deserts and mountains would definitely enthral you too. Researchers like David Livingstone, Ernest Shackleton, Humphrey Gilbert, Sir Francis Drake and Captain Cook were all funded by this society’s help. You can also see a private wedding or two taking place here.

    It’s always a positive for an area or city when there is a good visitor center close to major transport links. This is useful and with helpful staff!

    Great venue 10-minute walk from Angel Tube station. We were there as guests for the London Art Fair. A huge space with so many artists and galleries displaying. Well worth a visit.

    An interesting thought-provoking place next to SOAS. They have changing exhibitions - well made and very informative. The staff is very helpful. We visited the exhibition "Expelled" in its last days and learned a lot.

    This was the first stop of the day on my visit to Greenwich. The visitor centre is free to enter and has some very informative displays on the history of the Greenwich area. It's a great way to get an introduction and idea of what you'll be seeing for the day. Also wondered the surrounding grounds and it was absolutely beautiful.
    Spent about 45 mins here.

    The London Library is a must-visit for literature enthusiasts. The bad news is that it's a private lending library, and you can't just walk in off the street. The good news is that they offer free tours one evening per month, and you can book free tickets through Eventbrite. These tours are an amazing opportunity to learn about the history and architecture of the building from an experienced guide, and see some of the treasures from the collection up close.

    Southbank Centre is a complex of artistic venues located on the Southbank.

    You can find here the following: Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, National Poetry Library, and Southbank Centre Archive Studio.

    The outdoor spaces also provide art while you are eating and drinking at the food market and pop-ups.

    There’s much more to Burlington House than the Royal Academy of Arts because it is home to a number of other learned societies, including the Royal Astronomical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Linnaean Society. The Geological Society is the only one accessed from Piccadilly rather than the courtyard of Burlington House itself. Founded by 13 members including Humphrey Davy in 1807 in the Freemasons Tavern in Great Queen Street, it moved to Burlington House in 1874. It has a magnificent library spread over two floors with over 300,000 volumes. During London Open House 2023 various first floor rooms including a Council Chamber and a modern ground floor lecture theatre were also open to the public. Some displays of rocks and fossils were available to interest younger visitors.

    We visited this museum as we had seen it listed as a place worth visiting and it did not disappoint. Such an interesting place with so much history explained and displayed. Would definitely recommend a visit. We'll be back to visit next time we're in London.
