    The Wallace Collections has an outstanding selection of artwork and armor on display for being free. The audio guide added interesting context and revealed how notable some pieces and artists were at the time. My one critique is that I wish there was more information on Sir Richard Wallace and how the artwork was selected by his family. The artwork was beautiful, but I wished to learn more about the context of the collection itself.

    Such a fascinating place to go, Julia the tour guide was very informative and made it all very interesting with some wonder stories behind some the gravestones. Some spectacular areas too like the catacombs. Would definitely recommend.

    Really excellent visit to this museum. A journey through years gone by showing all the products, toys, radios, magazines, music dating back from the 1920,s until 1980,s. I will definitely return another time because there is so much to see and enjoy. The staff were very welcoming. It’s a must see place for all ages.

    The Courtauld Gallery is located in Somerset. It has a wonderful collection, especially in the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. had a number of Cezannes. It was not crowded which made for a great viewing experience.

    I discovered this park after my sister stayed in a YHA that used to be here. It is massive! Full of statues, walkways, squirrels and birds. It was muddy, but stunning. Holland House has been refurbished and is beautiful. My favourite part is the painted arches that make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.

    This is certainly a weird place and well worth visiting. It is the house of a wealthy architect who instructed that it should be left as it was on the date of his death in 1837. There is lots to see and the exhibits are purposefully not labelled so that the atmosphere can be appreciated if not enjoyed. It is so stuffed full of antiquities that it is difficult to see how someone could have lived there. You are likely to have to queue to enter although admission is free. There are also guided tours of the 'closed" rooms and these have to be booked in advance. The staff are extremely helpful and will explain the unusual exhibits and history behind them. One of London's hidden gems.

    We visited this museum some years ago so thought it was time to return! It was very easy for us to get to now the Elizabeth Line is open. We got out at Canary Wharf on the Elizabeth Line (where the Crossrail Roof Garden is), and its a short walk to the museum. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. So much to see and absorb. Sailortime was a surprise, we felt like we were walking through a film set, old streets, shops etc.

    We had an absolutely amazing time at the Crystal Maze! The zones and games were really well done and loads of fun, and the crystal dome was just like it used to look on the TV show! Our host, Professor Y, was brilliant and made our experience extra fun. Only one negative...I wouldn't recommend buying the photo of your group with the crystal dome. Very expensive and quite blurry! Aside from that, it was such a great experience!

    We started out in Regents Park and found our way to this hill. It was an easy walk on a fine but not too hot summer’s day. The views across London were great. The park is well maintained and a delight to visit.

    It's a high climb but the staircase is well maintained and fairly shallow treads so not too taxing on the legs. It does narrow at the top but just stand to side and people can pass easily. Great starting place if trying to encourage a love of history in a young child. Our 6 year old enjoyed the climb and the views from the top. With a 2 4 1 voucher with train ticket I think it was £11 for three of us. You might not see as much as something like the Eye but it's a fraction of the cost and a nice little time filler. You do have to leave bags at the bottom but you really don't want the extra weight on the climb or awkwardness passing peoplr
