Booked as a surprise for husbands birthday. I requested a surprise from Vinopolis by email as it was his 50th and they agreed they would arrange something. However after the initial talk on how to taste wine i went to reception to ask if they still intended to do this little surprise for my husband only to be asked where... More

I went with a group of 4 ladies with mixed interests in wine, we all like to drink it though! When we were looking into this place we started to work out costs per 25ml etc and how much wine you actually get for your buck, but that's not a fair way to view it. The costs covers the experience... More

When you think London you automatically think of wine....okay maybe not and that's why I was a little apprehensive when we decide to pluck down some hard earn cash for a few tickets. It's one thing going to see a tourist attraction like the Tower of London when in London...but a wine attraction in England you got to be kidding... More

I was a little apprehensive of coming here with a group of friends for my birthday, having read a few negative reviews on Tripadvisor. I thought it might only be half an hour of fun before the novelty wore off. However I was pleasantly surprised! We went for the middle package at £32, which almost doubles the amount of wine... More

Came here for the wine and cheese, which cost £50. Six wines, but of these we had champagne, oloroso sherry and tawny port, plus a sancerre, beaujolais and bordeaux. Then there were 6 cheeses - parmesan, stichilton, cheddar, a neal's yard goat's cheese, brie, and a Somerset sheep's cheese. Of the wines, the NV Champagne was actually OK - maybe... More

Business event which included a group wine tasting session during which group was given tips on how to 'taste' and identify wines. This included the differences between 'New World' and 'Old World', grape varieties, etc. Our guide was an Italian lady, who was very good and although our group was fairly small (30), room was huge and as such she...

I have been to Vinopolis twice before, prior to its refurbishment and changes. I have been raving about how good it was for years! Myself and my friend had a trip to London booked and I thought it would be great to go along again. I have to say I was so disappointed. They used to have members of staff... More

A little disappointing! Location and environment wise great! Informative as well. But the business owners need to read and listen to the reviews... The wine portions are tiny, barely a couple of sips. If you view wine in terms of price there should have been some really great wines. But because you barely get a taste it's very difficult to...
