Local Tourist Information Centres and Shops

City of London Information Centre

St. Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8BX, UK – 020 7332 3456

Good location for an information centre but also possible to get better London maps for free from Underground stations such as Temple. Notice an awful lot of the photographs for the information centre are of St Pauls and basically irrelevant

Lots of leaflets, ideas and information on things to do in and around London. Knowledgeable, friendly staff on hand.

Austrian National Tourist Office (no public office hours)

54 Hatton Garden, London EC1N 8HN, UK – 4002 0000

Corporate Entertainment

Go Ballistic London - Paintball / Paintballing

They have many different scenarios you can even choose to play indoor or outdoor. They also have many different promotions on their website as free paintballs, discount if you book online and many many other offers.

Ocean Leisure

11-14 Northumberland Ave, London WC2N 5AQ, UK – 020 7930 5050

Nice place but I would rather go to Brighton where there is more on offer with greater expertise

Great water sports shop but could have more kitesurfing gear. Also, did not have sunglasses to use in the water (such as seaspecs)

Savvy Surf

145-157 St John St, Clerkenwell, London EC1V 4PW, UK – 0845 474 7807

Ordered my Frontier Stove from Savvy Surf on Sunday afternoon, and it arrived by courier early on Tuesday. Brilliant item, over the Moon with it and well impressed with the service and communication I received from Savvy Surf. I had, in fact, ordered one of these from another source and it arrived (a full week after they had received my money) with only two flue sections instead of five, and a dire argument ensued before they begrudgingly agreed to refund my money (minus postage!) and took over a fortnight to refund me, so dealing with you after a bad experience like that was great. Will definitely buy from you again, and recommend you to friends. Excellent all round. Baz

Oakley London Covent Garden Store

1-4 King St, London WC2E 8HH, UK – 020 7395 6070

Really great customer service! Janet in the opticians department (upstairs) was very thorough and helpful. Definitely will be using again in the future.

Great staff and first class service, was originally told that my perception sunglasses would take 3 weeks as they would come from the US but took under a week! The staff were so good along with the service that I'm actually thinking about buying a second pair from them.

Boat Moorings & Marinas

Hermitage Community Moorings

16 Wapping High St, London E1W 1NG, UK – 020 7481 2122

Great community feeling we all feel very welcome when ever we moor the St Portwey there.

Nice little spot with great views up and down the river!

Limehouse Basin Marina

The Harbourmaster's Office, 46 Goodhart Place Limehouse, London E14 8EG, UK – 020 7308 9930

An island of serenity just a short walk from Canary Wharf. A lovely walk around the marina in the evening, or visit Gordon Ramsay's pub "The Narrow" for amazing food and views of the Thames.

The staff were genuinely helpful and ready to open up the gates for my boat to enter. On time!

Islington Visitor Moorings

Vincent Terrace, London N1 8HA, UK

A lovely spot to moor. Very secluded but near everything you'd need.

Boat Trips & Excursions - if available

City Cruises Tower Pier

Tower Millenium Pier, Lower Thames St, London EC3N 4DT, UK – 020 7740 0400

Very informative tour guides! We preferred a sightseeing cruise over the traditional bus tours to avoid getting stuck in the London traffic...would recommend to anyone visiting London.

Loved this afternoon tea we had while cruising down the Thames. Highly recommend for anyone especially families.

Thames Boat Rides from Embankment Pier

Embankment Pier, Victoria Embankment, London WC2N 6NU, UK – 0343 222 1234

It is wonderful and relaxing to do a boat ride in the Thames!

Pleasant way to Greenwich and onwards.

Thames River Tours

4A, 58 Riley Rd, London SE1 3DG, UK – 020 7237 3108

These dinner/party tours are really great! There's nothing better than floating down the Thames while you have a nice meal. Decent prices, too. Can't complain!

OK but ..... ............ all pre booked but seating a free for all; our party of four had to persuade couples to swap seats to enable us to sit together. ............ buffet not bad (not brilliant either) but had run out of coleslaw before we got our main course and strawberries before we got our dessert. ............. no commentary of any real value just a few corny comments from the wanna be comedian lighterman on board. ............. had to continually disturb or be disturbed by other guests when we/they wanted to move from the table. Expensive for a boat trip and eminently forgettable as a dining experience.

Local Parks & Gardens

Bernie Spain Gardens

South Bank, Lambeth, London SE1 9PH, UK – 020 7021 1600

Came to see where that scene in "24: Live another day" was filmed... was not disappointed!

It's a nice park. Good for picnic.

Rosemary Gardens

Southgate Rd, London N1 3JP, UK – 020 7527 2000

Lovely little garden with a football pitch and child's play area but with an area far away enough so you can relax without hearing children if you want

great place for children of all ages .lots of greenery plus a football pitch for the older children and it also has exercise bikes

Bethnal Green Garden

10 Witan St, London E2 6FG, UK – 020 7364 5000

I like it because I can seat on the grass, can I read something, listening music and relax. Plus the space for games(basket and football) and the games park for kids, some flowers πŸŒ·πŸŒΌπŸŒ»πŸŒΈπŸ΅πŸŒΎπŸŒΏπŸ€, birds 🐦 , chipmunks 🐿

Green areas and pitch well maintained. Lots of litter around/under the seats though.

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around London or London. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.

Divine Heritage Childminding Services

Freda Street, Bermondsey, London SE16 4BW, UK – 07939 303144

Divine childcare service is the the bast childcare producer that I will recommend to all parent or guidance who want their children to be look after properly. As a mum of two , leaving my kids is an important decision to make. It will be easier to know that your child are in a safe environment.

Thanks for the great service. I Would recommend this to anyone working around london bridge and central london. Very easy to pick up my daughter after work

Christian Heritage London
