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

Fantastic place! Superb team, dedicated to making the most of your day out. Group of 8 of us visited, every one of us had a really great time.

Righttolearn Tutors

7, 35-37 Ludgate Hill, London EC4M 7JN, UK – 020 8099 1626

These tutors have helped my children significantly improve in their academic learning aswell as improving my sons social & development skills. Daniel specifically has made it easier for my son to talk to about social subjects aswell as academical ones. My daughters Maths & Science grades have gone from standard to exceptionally high marks all thanks due to Laurence for putting in the extra hours with her. I can’t thank you enough, highly recommended & very professional

Great tutoring! Lovely tutors, and patient with my little cousin, who finds it hard to concentrate when doing maths.

Boat Moorings & Marinas

Hermitage Community Moorings

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

It's a very special place and unique in London. All the moorings in this cooperative are freehold moorings. Membership in the cooperative to buy a mooring is required. There are other stipulations on the type of boat, owners must reside permanently on the boat and a number of other requirements which reinforce the stated aim and charter of the place. For all intents and purposes, the only way to obtain a mooring is to purchase one of the existing boats if they come up for sale IF the sale includes the mooring. Even then you will have to be approved by the cooperative committee and meet the residency requirements but if you can manage all that you will have something truly special and unique. Needless to say, the location simply is outstanding, outstanding, outstanding. Be aware though that at high tide the moorings can get quite rough and rolly from wakes from passing marine traffic on the working river. Make sure you spend some time on the boat you intend to buy at high water so you know what you are signing up for in addition to the other stipulations and requirements. If you meet all the requirements, jump through all the hoops and take up residence, you will have a wonderful, tight knit local community with great services, good maintenance of the facilities, and a location that can't be beat.

There are regular open days where you can freely walk around and have a look at the boats.

City Cruises Plc Head Office

1 Scott's Unit 6, Scotts Sufferance Wharf, Mill Street, London SE1 2DF, UK – 020 7740 0400

Its one of the best cruises to be on if u wan to.see london on the river

Terrific way to see the city, both modern and historical. The informative commentary made it very interesting and worth the money. Can't imagine it being very enjoyable in bad weather.

City Cruises Tower Pier

Tower Millennium 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. 👌

Ok and excellent staff but the audio guide is as historically interesting as a paper cup. Especially the adverts for other boats! Yawn

Thames Boat Rides from Embankment Pier

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

The Thames Clipper is probably the best no-fuss transportation system along the Thames. I took it over the summer to go from Central London to Greenwich for some sightseeing, and it certainly was scenic! Believe me, the best view of the Tower Bridge is by going under it first! The price isn't cheap, but comparably, it is much cheaper than the other boats that go down/up the Thames (this one just doesn't have the commentary). If it's a nice day, don't bother sitting inside - try to grab a seat outdoors at the back of the boat. The clipper is really better than taking the tube, especially in the summer!

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

Local Parks & Gardens

Bloomsbury Square Garden

14 Bloomsbury Square, London WC1A 2RJ, UK – 020 7974 4444

Very nice to have an open piece of green space garden for anyone to visit. It is calm and relaxing, and provides welcome benches to sit and read, or drink and eat. When it is sunny it is a lovely place to enjoy the rays. It doesn't matter what age, sex, colour etc. that you are. You can take advantage of the chance to enjoy some peace and quiet in the middle of a hugely busy and noisy area. It is areas like this that make London such an attractive place.

Excellent for walking, jogging, reading & picnics. Love coming here to relax from all the hustle & bustle of busy London. There is a small play area for kids.

Archbishop's Park

Carlisle Ln, Lambeth, London SE1 7LE, UK – 020 7926 5555

Beautiful park in a great location. Just few minutes walking from the London Eye and Southbank. The sports facilities has just been renovated and changing rooms with toilets have been built. It presents football pitches, tennis courts, cricket area, exercise area. There's a spacious field with benches and tables, ideal for a lunch in the sun or a picnic. A fantastic pirate themed play area for kids from birth to 12 years old displaying swings, slides, climbing facilities and a large sand pitch. Parents can relax on the grass or on various benches. Very popular in Spring and Summer. Dogs can be walked and exercised in the park. There's also a wild life corner with a pond. If only there was a cafe would be excellent.

Beautiful and Very relaxing environment. There are beautiful big trees and many different kinds of birds and little informational boards about them. There are benches alongside the lake, and foldable chairs that you can take to sit wherever you want on the grassy area.

Meath Gardens

Smart St, London E2 0SN, UK

I was lost in this world and then I stumbled upon this gem. The perfect mix serenity and excitement. I found my place in this world. A warrior, a lover, a leader.

I'd give it 5 stars if I didn't live next to Victoria park. It's a small cute park equipped with the basics of what you need in a park.

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.
Chapter House

18 Crucifix Ln, London SE1 3JW, UK

Nice and well maintained office building.

Dr Johnson's House

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

This is an excellent period house Museum. It has several floors with displays which cover Dr Johnsons life and work. Many of his books are on display. There are also period clothes which can be tried on and special events. Before visiting I suggest you check opening times because they do vary. Set aside a couple of hours to make the most of your visit. It is like stepping back in time.

Simply one of the best London destinations. A real gem tucked away off piste. Get there - you won't regret it.
