Local Tourist Information Centres and Shops

City of London Information Centre

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

Really helpful to make your plan in London. There are a lot of information categorized into walk tour, plays, family tour and so on. You can easily find out the info that you need.

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

Austrian National Tourist Office (no public office hours)

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


Japan National Tourism Organization

Thank you so much to Mayhem and their team! My boyfriend had a fab day at the weekend! He said it is by far the best site he has played at and the staff were just so helpful wouldn't be able to fault them! We will definitely be back again soon! Lou and Steve.

Played at Mayhem this weekend for their monthly walkon event. Amazing maps, marshals, players and all round atmosphere. By far the best paintballing site I have played at in the London and Essex area. Will definitely be going back, can't wait for the Mayhem Big Game event in August this year.

Limehouse Basin Marina

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

Beautiful marina away from the hustle & bustle of busy roads of London. I've enjoyed many peaceful walks around this hidden gem, as well as canoeing with Moo Canoes :)

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.

City Cruises Tower Pier

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

Highly recommended. Came away feeling very relaxed and there was lots of food and the tea was lovely. Reasonable prices and great value for money for a cruise and afternoon tea. Got to watch the sun set over London. Boris was our waiter and he was super friendly and helpful. Definitely worth it and wish we had more time aboard. 👌

Fabulous lunch cruise. Party celebration on lunch cruise on 26th November 2017 First class food and excellent service from very friendly staff, excellent atmosphere created by every member of the team. Thank you, would highly recommend.

Dr Johnson's House

17 Gough Square, London EC4A 3DE, UK – 020 7353 3745

Charming museum on Dr. Johnson and his life. He is perhaps not too well known in America anymore but definitely was a critical figure in the history of the English language. A quiet oasis in the City just off busy Fleet Street

A wonderful "hidden" gem time-capsule...reflecting an authentic portrait of Dr. Johnson one of England's greatest polymaths, hence 18th C., polite society! Excellent value for money too...only a mere, 6 uk pounds entrance fee. No wheelchair access though sadly, steep stairs to negotiate...too!

Chapter House

18 Crucifix Ln, London SE1 3JW, UK

Nice and well maintained office building.

Charles Dickens Museum

48 Doughty St, London WC1N 2LX, UK – 020 7405 2127

The museum set in a town house once occupied by the author. Wonderful exhibits, interactive displays, real possessions once belonging to Dickens or his family. We had a marvellous first visit and would highly recommend

Lovely piece of history. Maybe best to couple it with a reading of one of his works. We saw The Haunted Man. The actor was better than Simon Callow!
