    As a history nerd, quite a sunny atmosphere once you get past the history of torture. Gobsmacked at the absolute UNITS those ravens in the courtyard were (lovely fellas). Lots to learn, a good amount to see. Probably one of my favorite bits of my trip.

    Well worth the short wait, and price of admission for a total view of the downtown London landscape.

    It had lots of things you could touch, and not overloaded with information but enough. The engine room had a braille and large print pamphlet, great access.

    There are two different areas. One is the war rooms. The other is a small museum dedicated to Churchill that is in the middle of the war room walk through. You get a free audio guide for both. It’s all well done and informative. You need about 2 hours to get through it so be sure to give yourself time.

    I just didn’t realise so ma y people had been buried here. Tombs from Edward the confessor to Stephen hawking! Grand, obviously. I regretted not taking the audio tour as so much is unmarked and unexplained. Well worth the money.

    Love Covent Garden especially at Christmas and you don’t need to be a tourist to appreciate the beauty and ambience. Christmas lights were divine and the huge tree was fabulous. Started to feel like Christmas for us after visiting.

    My wife and I ate here for our last night in London and we were thrilled with the view from the moment we walked off the lift. We walked around the area and enjoyed the different viewing points, plants, and music. As we were taken to our seat we met our wonderful server, Keren. She greeted us with a smile and even provided extra blankets for my wife to make her more comfortable. Keren made sure we were well taken care of and everything came out on time. She was even kind enough to take photos of us as well to capture our last night in London. We will recommend this location to any friends visiting the area. We recommend the Steak and Ale Pie. Yum!
    Thank you Sky Garden & Keren!

    It just hasn’t been the same since the queen passed… I’ve been going to Buckinham palace every week for a few years now - since I moved to London. The joy is gone. I know King Charles is working hard, but it’s difficult to replace an icon like Elizabeth. She was a complete joy. I left 5 stars because the palace is quite grand, though I’m still uncertain about the path of the monarchy.

    It’s as big as advertised. I went nuts when it chimed. It was 11 AM and I was a few pasties deep. I was hoping there was a bathroom in the tower, but unfortunately it id difficult to go in as a tourist. That’s okay, the clock is quite striking.

    Lovely staff gave us a warm welcome even though we were late due to delays on the underground. The climb was safe and exhilarating if a little chilly at the top. Fabulous experience.

    Fantastic views especially in the evening when all the lights are visible making the landmarks easier to spot. I did think that the price was a tad excessive though.

    The Globe tour was great. The guide was very funny and informative and the building is amazing. We'll worth the cost. And if you arrive early, grab a mulled wine or a lovely cider at the Swan pub next door.

    Chelsea fan or not, football fan or not, if you have time in London it is worth visiting this place. + you learn also about the history of the team.
