You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Bank Of Ireland Corporate Banking

Bow Bells House, 1 Bread St, London EC4M 9BE, UK – 020 7236 2000

Always been a fabulous bank even though I've had no branch for 3 years, being in England. They own the Post Office so it can offer most branch services, and the 365 online is fabulous, though adding payees or changing your phone number is a bit draconian.

Bank of England

Threadneedle St, London EC2R 8AH, UK – 020 7601 4444

I went to exchange some old twenty pound bills that went out of circulation and spent some time at the museum. It was time well spent. I enjoyed learning about the history of the bank, its architects, and was intrigued about how busy and crowded it was in the bank on the dividend day. A display of all the Bank of England notes was among my favorites, and of course who would refuse touching the real gold!

Great place to visit, full of history. Has great facts about the Bank of England and the history of the UK monetary system.

Westpac Banking Corporation

Camomile Court, 23 Camomile St, London EC3A 7LL, UK – 020 7621 7000

Fantastic service! Staff were incredibly well informed, helpful and efficient. Having wasting considerable time trying to open an online account with another Australian bank, it was an absolute joy to find one that would do everything face to face. Thank you Westpac!

Excellent. Efficient and fast..

Dental Surgeries

Finsbury Dental Care

5 London Wall Buildings, Finsbury Circus, London EC2M 5NS, UK – 020 7638 6556

Finsbury Dental Care is the best dentist practice I have ever visited (and I have been to many after knocking my front tooth out when I was younger). I first saw Gavin Seal in relation to potential root canal treatment and he was brilliant and extremely honest (and actually ended up saving me around £700 when other dentists has recommended other procedures due to his extensive knowledge and practical experience!). I then continued having routine treatment at the practice with Adam Clapp who is extremely skilled, gentle and thorough. Adam always takes care in explaining things and puts me at ease. Unlike other dentists, I never feel rushed through my appointment and he always happy to answer any questions (and is also always on time). Adam is again very honest and if I need a filling/ treatment he will explain exactly why. I have also emailed the reception a few times with questions and he will personally respond with advice. I don't usually write reviews but feel this dentist deserves it!

Adam Clapp is a experienced and talented dentist who takes professional pride in doing an excellent job. He has a reassuringly calm and personable manner. I know he would be great with a nervous client. Highly recommended.

Walworth Dental Care

296 Walworth Rd, London SE17 2TE, UK – 020 7703 5601

It's not clear why the most recent reviews of this dental practice have been so low. I found all staff polite, efficient and friendly. I was seen quickly in a professional manner. The hygienist and dentist were both excellent. The clinic is in need of a paint job and a spruce-up, but it was clean.

Surrey Quays Dental Practice

204 Lower Rd, London SE8 5DJ, UK – 020 7231 7912

Dr Schmidt is a fantastic dentist. Explains procedures very clearly, puts patients at ease. Procedures have been efficient and as painless as possible! Very good with kids, taking things at their pace and not pushing them til they are ready to sit. Really great at desensitising kids to the dentist’s chair. Whole team very friendly. Highly recommended.

I moved away from deptford and now live in sevenoaks but I have remained a patient at Surrey quays dental practice simply because the level of service is so high. Dr Schmidt is a fantastic dentist. He is always so clear about my options but also so likeable. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. A big thank you to the whole team!


Dentistry 100

64-65 Long Ln, London EC1A 9EJ, UK – 020 7638 7100

This place is a real gem. Dr Parkman is the friendliest dentist I think I've ever had, and the kids all get on really well with him too. The surgery is clean, funky, and they play great tunes. Have recommended him it to several of my friends and they all love him too!!!

Angel Smile Dental Care - Islington Dentist

41 Islington High St, London N1 9LH, UK – 020 7837 3938

I had my top right wisdom tooth removed. I had really built up the procedure in my head as I have previously had wisdom teeth removed but only under general not local anaesthetic. I was visibly shaking and had lots of questions about the procedure but the team made me feel more at ease. The actual removal took literally 4 minutes and I didn’t feel a thing! If you need a wisdom tooth removed I would definitely recommend this surgery based upon my experience today.

I have TMD DISORDER which for any dentist it's hard to treat and I had previous problems with a number of dentist leaving me in pain. My first trip to Angle smiles was a pleasant one after explaining my circumstances with the receptionist. My hygienist treatment was excellent and this is the first time I can feel my teeth as I have had a thorough clean . Angle smiles is the best place to be with it's warm surroundings and friendly professional staff who have given me a head start on how to manage my disorder.

IGDP Limited - Dentist Islington

66 Upper St, London N1 0NY, UK – 020 7226 0849

I highly recommend this dental practice. I've been going here for nearly 3 years for dentist, braces and hygienist. Everyone from the dentists, hygienist and receptionists are amazing. Stephan and Monika are who I have seen the most and are very very good. Other people great too. It's so hard to find truly great dentists!! Thank you

Went to see Dr S van Vuuren. What a lovely dentist! All staff were friendly, very clean and well equipped practise. You feel filled with confidence from the minute you walk in. I am quite nervous when it comes to teeth and I was at ease throughout. Definitely found a permanent dentist to go to in London. I will travel from far just to come back here.

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

Suite 127a, 9 Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4YF, UK – 020 8712 9378

Extremely friendly and reassuring. Very good value. saves the stress of making the phone call to your GP to be told you cant be seen for 10 days. will definitely recommend.

The entrance/location is challenging to find at first but the service and doctors are great.

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

4.1, Alpha House, 100 Borough High St, London SE1 1LB, UK – 020 8712 9378

I visited London Bridge not long ago, as I was feeling extremely unwell in work. My GP had no same day appointments and suggested to call back the following morning, but I just could not leave it that long. I googled doctors local to me and this was the nearest to work. I saw the doctor within the 15 minute time slot, got my medication and felt much better by the end of the week. Amazing, convenient service, and great staff including the helpful receptionist who offered me water. Definitely a recommendation for friends/family within the busy City life. S. Jane

After 2 months of trying to get tests and good sense out of the NHS, and a lot of stress in the process, everything I needed was achieved in a single day by a lovely London Doctor. Such efficiency and such sound and caring advice was the most pleasant surprise to me. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will definitely use them again if I need to.

London Doctors Clinic

Room 101, 117 Waterloo Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 8UL, UK – 020 8712 9378

Kind , caring and professional. This doctors clinic is easy to get to with a great location just outside the station. Doctor Aarti diagnosed me quickly and made me feel very comfortable in her presence. Highly recommended this clinic to anyone looking to for a new surgery or just somewhere reliable to go when away from home.

Was able to get an appointment at short notice, newly relocated to London so had not registered with a GP, was able to see a doctor on a Sunday who was very helpful to my situation.

spent about 2 weeks here just before Xmas following a stroke. staff were amazing as were the doctors. amazing experience.

THEY SAVED MY LIFE. I was hospitalised here with a cerebral haemorrhage in june 2017,absolutely amazing care and treatment,total credit to the staff and specialists and surgeons,a complete credit to the NHS

Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine

60 Great Ormond St, London WC1N 3HR, UK – 020 3456 7890

After drugs didn't help. I tried alternatives not having much faith but hands down its been so helpful. The doctor is so caring and my condition has healed.


Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital

330 Grays Inn Rd, Kings Cross, London WC1X 8DA, UK – 020 3456 7890

I had a septorhinoplasty 4 months ago with Mr Randhawa, because my nose was deviated and my left side was semi-closed. Honestly, the operation was perfect because I didn't suffer anything, and the postoperative course was the same. After the operation I could breath from the left side, and it was a fantastic feeling. My breathing has improved a lot, and my nose looks also better now, thanks to Mr Randhawa and all the doctors. They were very kind and professional, like the lady who took me the pictures. The nurse who followed me when I had my surgery was pretty good, but in general, nurses should improve their manners.

Absolutely brilliant hospital with very friendly staff, feel very lucky to have this resource available on the NHS. Thank you.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Haven't been to this particular ward

This is a great church. There are family friendly services in both English and Spanish. The atmosphere is really nice, and you will definitely have an enjoyable spiritual experience. I feel closer to Jesus Christ whenever I come. It is easy to access on public transportation, close to Kennington tube station and several bus stops.

St James C of E Church

Clerkenwell Close, Clerkenwell, London EC1R 0EA, UK – 020 7251 1190

My Ancestors married here (by Banns) in 1812, they were Mary Ann Piearson (spelt that way)and John Lamp Wright. Would love to hear from anyone who has family connections. There was also a marriage the year following between Richard Piearson and Elizabeth Deane (by Licence) I do not know if they were related but I surmise they were in some way.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Browns Old Jewry

8-10 Old Jewry, London EC2R 8DN, UK – 020 7606 6677

It's not a "bad" place but it could be better. Upstairs is really noisy if there are a lot of people so try get a seat downstairs. The food is quite tasty when they get it right but don't be afraid to send the hard as nails well done steak back if you ordered it medium rare originally. The service has always been impeccable.

Great office lunch place or for coffee meetings. A refurbishment in 2017 improved the decor and sense of space. Good breakfasts...reservations needed as busy weekdays; quiet on weekends.

Tas Restaurant

33 The Cut, South Bank, London SE1 8LF, UK – 020 7928 2111

I come here from time to time as it's near to my work. Food is delicious, staff are very welcoming and friendly. I like that they are very careful with dietary requirements, and go above and beyond to make sure that I know what I'm eating and don't compromise my dietary needs. They have some very good vegan options in amongst their regular items, Just ask the staff.

Very busy place but the food was quite good and staff did their best despite the crowds of people. It could be better if they took out a couple of tables here and there to give some extra space. Weve been a couple of times now and always the same experience. I particularly like the chicken wings. Its always clean here and the docor is fresh.

Tas Restaurant

72 Borough High St, London SE1 1XF, UK – 020 7403 7200

Really amazing food and the waiters and waitresses are really lovely people! There is a really big family vibe to this restaurant and it comes out in the flavour of the place. Also if your accessible this place is not too bad but it is quite difficult to get to the loo - yes there is a disabled loo here!!

Had a really good time at Tas. The food was lovely. We went for the £19.95 menu which includes 2 starters, a mains and a drink. Portion sizes were good and you also have 2 rounds of bread. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They had live Turkish music when we were there too which added to the occasion. Do be mindful that a 12% discretionary service charge is added to your bill.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Archbishop Sumner Church of England Primary School

Jubilee House, 2 Reedworth St, Lambeth, London SE11 4PE, UK – 020 7735 2781

My eldest daughter has attended this school from reception and I have been impressed by the dedication of the both the staff and governors. Music and sports provision with specialist teachers for a small primary is particularly good along with support for a range of abilities both those needing more basic support and those who need to be stretched. Only quibble is clarity and timeliness of communication; the school has both a mobile app and regular SMS updates in addition to a weekly newsletter however not always consistent and allowing sufficient time for working parents to plan. In general a welcoming and supportive environment for children, parents and staff.

Great support for kids who need it and great after school activities. It is a little small for 2 form classes though.

Charterhouse Square School & Nursery

40 Charterhouse Square, London EC1M 6EA, UK – 020 7600 3805

Charterhouse Square School is founded by original headmistress Jamie Mason with school fees set at £425 per term! Over the course of the next two decades we go on to gain a reputation for all-round academic performance. In March the school becomes part of Cognita – a worldwide group of schools founded by Sir Chris Woodhead, former head of Ofsted. In December Caroline Lloyd takes over as headmistress fifteen years after first joining the school. When space becomes available in an adjacent building, the school expands to occupy a total of seven floors in our much-coveted Barbican location. This allows the school to add a dedicated Early Years area, a school library and an art room. n further work to improve the school site, the entire basement and ground floor of number 40 is completely remodelled. The addition of bi-folding glass doors to link our Green Room to its outdoor sand and water area is a particular hit with the children. Charterhouse Square School celebrates its 30-year anniversary with a surprise party for the children and a ball for parents, teachers and friends of the school. The school is also featured in The Good Schools Guide for the first time.

Rosemary Works School

1 Branch Pl, London N1 5PH, UK – 020 7739 3950

Both of our sons absolutely love going to school every morning. In the school's informal, friendly and flexible environment children do very well academically out of real interest and self confidence rather then simply a sense of discipline and obligation. Children are encouraged to think independently and creatively, and to voice their ideas, thoughts and opinions which will be heard and actually considered in matters ranging from lunch menu to learning subjects. Simply a great school.

My son has been at Rosemary Works School since nursery and is extremely happy there. It is a small school with a very nurturing and creative environment. The teachers are excellent and my son is developing a real love for learning. I couldn't recommend it enough!
