Lloyds Banking Group Offices

Nice building but needs some flowers as well a good cleaning Light fixtures look 60s

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.

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..

Excellent service today! Just moved over from HSBC and the staff who helped me with an internet card reader were fantastic. The branch itself has just been redone and looks great! Thank you!

I have bank account with Nationwide and I'm very happy with this branch ,very helpfully fast and easy,I recomended is very good branch.Regards Cristian Buzan!

Nationwide

1 Aldgate, London EC3N 1RE, UK – 0800 554 1284

I phoned up to ask about their policy in accepting old pound coins, the chap I guess called “Chris” was so friendly over the phone that not only I walked in but switched my current account after he explained how else I could gain. Everyone was friendly. I am glad to have them in the community. Branch manager is a cool chap too. All the best.

I visited the branch one morning without an appointment as some banking documents became known to me last minute, for an official application due that same afternoon. The representative who spoke with me was Tarkan, who was professional, helpful - a breathe of fresh air compared to other official and commercial personnels I've had to deal with that week. He helped produce as many documents as he could to meet my documentation requirements. I've just had a successful application outcome for the matter! Much thanks to Tarkan I'd say. :) The branch is super swish and you get served in a 'coffee shop' setting (can't remember but I think they did offer proper coffee, too!), very interesting banking style.

Local Chambers of Commerce for EC3N 4AA. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

One of my favourite places to photograph weddings. Lovely room with loads of space and a great location. As London wedding photographer I think this is definitely one of the greatest registry offices in London.

Great place for a registry office marriage. Friendly staff. Welcoming atmosphere.

Camden Town Hall

Judd St, London WC1H 9JE, UK – 020 7974 4444

Efficient, organised and friendly. The staff were cheerful and quickly got my certificate sorted. Security answered my questions politely and were helpful.

The staff are lovely here. You know they're busy but they're always courteous and help you out as much as they can. I had a number of questions that I asked both online and in person and was always happy with the responses I got. The only thing that could use some improving is their website - some things aren't too easy to sort online and I had to email them, but got a call back and when dealing with the same issue in person they got everything sorted for me right there and then.

Dental Surgeries

Bupa Dental Services Limited

15 Devonshire Square, London EC2M 4YW, UK – 020 3504 5542

Very happy with this dental studio - in the long run it's much better to go private than with the NHS for dentistry. Very knowledgable and friendly staff, nice atmosphere, professional and welcoming. Andrew Middlemiss is an excellent dentist.

Had a great toothy makeover about 5 years ago and everything is still perfect. About to book in for a hygiene appt ☺️

Charles Landau Dentistry

6 Prebend St, Islington, London N1 8PT, UK – 020 7226 3424

Can't recommend these guys enough. Sophie and Yaz are super friendly and extremely professional, making you feel at ease and confident you're in good hands, A* service - thanks for everything!

Hadn't been to the dentist in a while so I was pretty apprehensive. I saw Sophie who was absolutely brilliant, all the staff make you feel incredibly welcome, they're so friendly that it is a pleasure to get a check up. I will now feel a lot more confident booking my next dentist appointment, couldn't recommend highly enough.

Zero Seven Dental Practice

7 St John St, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 4AA, UK – 020 7253 7667

I can highly recommend Dr Enaker. I was pretty nervous before I got my ceramic crown. He did such an amazing work, explained me everything and all went completely painfree. My teeth look fantastic now!

I went to Dr. Enaker this morning to have my retainer fixed which broke overnight and I'm totally happy with his service. Very firendly, competent, uncomplicated.

Dentists

London City Dentists

10 Lloyd's Avenue, London, Tower Hill EC3N 3AX, UK – 020 7488 4445

Had not been to the dentist for years. Found these guys near my work, and they have been really great and accommodating. Talking me through the work I am having done and explaining what's what, great dentist, great music, great location, great assistants! Very recommended!

Despite my best efforts, I have had an increasing number of problems with my teeth over the past few years. With my latest bout of pain, I decided to have a number of intensive sessions to salvage my teeth and restore a bit of self confidence. Wayne and the team at London City Dentists spent hours fastidiously rectifying a number of problems with my teeth. All the time I was there I felt comfortable (almost falling asleep in the chair at some points) - completely at odds to my experiences at other dentists. Wayne has really transformed my mouth, and I couldn't recommend the practice more!

IGDP Limited - Dentist Islington

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

I'm a teenager and this was my first time going to a private dental practice. I had a bacterial infection in one tooth which kept me nervous for a few months (but turned out to just be minor). I believe I was given Dr Rory Mac Sweeney who was regularly reassuring, constantly kind, very intelligent, and gave detailed answers on any problems or questions I had. Brilliant dentist. I feel bad for not having anything very special to say about the staff there as they were similar to the usual staff I encounter, but they were definitely doing their jobs well as they were pleasant and helpful. Nothing bad to say there. The building is quite narrow, but the waiting room was big enough as there were only a few people in there. The building had a nice, quiet, and professional atmosphere which was relaxing to wait in. I would note that the entrance to the building is quite small and not as obvious compared to the storefronts around there, so keep an eye out for it and know where you're looking, just to be safe. I'd highly recommend this dental practice as I had entered a nice environment, and then left feeling very satisfied with the service I had received. I'll be strongly considering coming back here for anything I'm very worried about.

Finished my Fastbraces treatment with Stephan and the team this morning and I am simply over the moon with the results. I have to praise the whole team for my experience there. The staff are extremely professional and friendly, which made each visit a delight. It is stated that tooth movement can happen from Day 1, which I was very skeptical about. However within minutes of leaving the practice I could see and feel my lower incisors had already moved and continued to do so. My treatment took longer than anticipated, but this was due to the many adjustments I requested, which Stephan accommodated with ease. Straight after my braces were removed I saw the hygienist Monika who was simply fabulous. She is so knowledgeable and informative. As an adult I was so nervous about embarking on orthodontic treatment but I am so pleased that I took the plunge. I have no hesitation in recommending IGDP for your orthodontic and dentistry needs.

Smile Dental Care - Tower Hamlets

Harford Health Centre, 115 Harford Street, London E14 4FG, UK – 020 7001 1783

Can’t fault this place. Quick to give out appointments and dentist addresses all issues immediately.

The practice was able to accommodate me same-day. Friendly staff and a professional consultation. Thanks!

London Doctors Clinic - Private GP

3.4, 46 New Broad St, London EC2M 1JH, 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.

Use this service a lot. Very practical for city workers, good consultants and not too pricey. Highly recommend

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

Very comfortable reception and office. Both times I've been here (once on a Saturday) the doctor actually listened, gave clear advice, and helped me with prescriptions and referrals, and to navigate how to get the further help I needed. They also stock certain basic prescriptions right there - eliminating the need for another stop at a pharmacy, which is helpful especially off-hours. Sometimes, it's worth it to invest a little for excellent service.

I was in a desperate situation where I needed a standard medication (for me) prescription before I ran out of an important medication. While not actually referred to this practice, I did get some strong suggestions to google London Doctor’s Clinic. That cake from another PHS physician. The appointment scheduling was excellent and, from the time I tried to book an appointment until I was examined and had my new prescription, it was less than an hour.

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.

Barts Health NHS Trust

The Royal London Hospital, Whitechapel Rd, London, Whitechapel E1 1BB, UK – 020 3416 5000

This hospital is one of the best I have ever been to. For last 3 months i come here ( first surgery then outpatient care ) and I cannot say one bad word about this place. Of course , i dont know all departments just plastic surgery and hand clinic but I was very scared to come here for any treatment after reading all this bad opinions. That is why I decided to actually find a time to write about my positive experience because I think that is a problem. Happy people dont find time to write about their happiness they just move on. Plastic surgery unit was excelent. I had surgery done quickly and with the outmost care from nurses to surgeons . All was very professional and with the use of newest techniqes and equipment. I was in awe of the technology and know how this hospital is using to help people. The units are always clean and staff are very nice and caring. The outpatient hand clinic is amazing so are the doctors and nueses working there. They have incredible detailed knowledge about what they do and how to help. They are open to new sugestions only to improve the final result of therapy which is bring back the functionallity of your hands back. All you have to remember is that you need to have patience because sometimes the process of recovery takes time. Dont be scared to come for treatment to Royal London Hospital and good luck to all in recovery .

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Saint Botolph Without Aldgate

Aldgate High St, London EC3N 1AB, UK – 020 7283 1670

Fantastic historic City church - you can expect to find gorgeous interiors and decorations all around - despite the not very promising construction site all around it. I especially enjoy their bells playing at evenings and the lunchtime recitals on Wednesdays.

With great history Chaucer Defoe Newton Spenser Darcy and Carew to mention a few. The oldest playable organ of the country is here. First read the free history pamphlet.

Saint Etheldreda's Roman Catholic Church

14 Ely Pl, London EC1N 6RY, UK – 020 7405 1061

A little gem indeed: the architecture, the history, the windows (on a sunny day the choir windows are mesmerising! Look out for the angels quite unusual) And the service too is top quality either weekdays or Sunday.

The place is very quite and warm. It has a 1:00pm mass during the weekdays which is good for working faithful Catholics. The entrance is not that noticeable as it is facing parallel with the road, new to the place won’t find it easily but just looked to the left and you will find the small door which lead to narrow hallway. Very solemn place of worship.

St Mary Moorfields R C Church

Amazing , very unassuming place in a very unexpected location. I am a frequent visitor of that church and absolutely love it. Fr Chris is a huge magnet for me, very attentive and hugely dedicated. I love his homilies and I wish we had more priests like him.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Tas Restaurant

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

Average food. Reasonably priced set menu but starters came out cold as did bread. Bread came with no dips had to ask twice. Waiting staff average, seem to have lost their voices no pleases or thank you despite me being pleasant to them. Nobody asked how my food was and nobody seemed to really care. Sums it up well.

Two kids and 3 adults seated within a few minutes @ 8:15pm on a Monday. Food came out quickly. Someone had a bday celebration; very short, courteous to others, yet enjoyable. Food was wonderful. Cheese was fresh. Hummus had nice texture and taste. Overall, great experience from such a small street cafe. Would have had more fotos-ate first before realizing this place should be promoted

Tas Restaurant

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

Nice food, pleasant environment and very good location. Menu has lots of options of starters and mains. I recommend it.

Nice ambience and attentive staff. Guitarist was very entertaining. I was a bit disappointed in my food. Lamb stew was a served with much of the rendered fat as the gravy. A bit pricey for what it ultimately was.

Savoy Grill Restaurant

Savoy Hotel, London WC2R 0EU, UK – 020 7592 1600

Came here for my birthday and our table all had the Taste of Savoy Grill menu. It exceeded my expectations and I left the restaurant on a blissful gastronomic high! The Beef Wellington and the scallops were the stars of the show. Service was excellent as expected from a world-class hotel and a Gordon Ramsay restaurant - attentive, warm yet not intrusive! Thank you for an amazing experience!

This restaurant is as legendary as the hotel and theatre it resides by. The food, drinks and service are all impeccable. Classy but not snobby in any way. Thanks for a nice evening.

Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School

339/341 City Rd, London EC1V 1LJ, UK – 020 7833 9388

Hopes and Dreams has been a blessing in our lives. Our daughter is now 30 months old and she has been in the nursery since she was about 14 months. Equally in all rooms she has received the best care. All practitioners and teachers, and specially her key persons has been so loving and dedicated, supporting her in her development with love, patience and understanding of her needs. They have been, not only teaching her about colors, numbers, letters, etc, but more importantly for us, they have been teaching her about values such as respect for herself and others, and are encouraging her to grow as a confident and independent little person, preparing her to seek and meet challenges in life. It is always hard to live our children with other people, and for us, as full time working parents, It give us a peace of mind to trust our little treasure to the hands of the hopes and Dreams team everyday. We are positive that our daughter is safe and loved and we enjoy following her day to day experiences though the daily reports, journey books and observations in My Montessori Child website. Thank you very much Hopes and Dreams!!!

My children attended this warm and inviting Nursery from when they were 5 months old. My son now 10 and daughter 5 experienced all the age groups. They have both turned out to be very socialable and academic individuals and I feel that credit goes to the long standing practitioners and professionals that my taught my children over those vital early years. The staff showed a clear commitment to the individual needs of my children with their loving and caring attitude and I believe this was the best start I could have given them. This Nursery was truly home from home.

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.

Walnut Tree Walk Primary School

Walnut Tree Walk, Lambeth, London SE11 6DS, UK – 020 7735 1402

Great school, children are encouraged to flourish as who they are. Reception teachers are fantastic and my daughter always skips to school and has a smile on her face at the end of the day

Well the greatest primary school their is to be honest. i had the best experience their and ill never forget the school :)

Oaklands Secondary School

Old Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 6PR, UK – 020 7613 1014

One of the first and only choice we made for our child, who'll be attending the school from next September, Reason we took the decision, we have other family members who'd attended the school and also some are currently studying there. They all are seem to be doing very well with their education, and from their results and recommendation we decided to pay a visit 2 weeks ago. I was extremely pleased to see two of my former teachers Mr. Bonning and Mr. Purton still teaching within the school and I'm talking its over 20 years I've left school. These two teachers are great individuals always want the best for their students and provide real quality teaching. The headmistress she is the foundation of the school and also with experience and great results. Listening to her speech during the open evening she just convinced me and my wife along with my child. Thank you Oaklands

City of London School for Girls

City of London School for Girls, St Giles Terrace, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BB, UK – 020 7847 5500

City of London School for Girls (CLSG) is a independent school located in the City of London. It is the partner school of the all-boys City of London School and the City of London Freemen's School All three schools receive funding from the City's Cash.[1] History The school was founded using a bequest by William Ward, a merchant of Brixton, in 1894.[2] It was his conviction that girls should be given a broad and liberal education with an emphasis on scholarship; he left a third of his fortune to the City of London to fund the foundation of a girls' school, a £20,000 legacy for the City of London Corporation. The school now receives financial support from the City Livery Companies as well as banks and other City firms. Links with the City of London remain strong – the City administers the school and the Board of Governors is appointed by the Court of Common Council. The school has strong links with its brother school – the City of London School is just a 15-minute walk away. The school celebrated its 110th Anniversary in 2004–2005, under the title of 'Women in Leadership'. It celebrated its 111th Anniversary in 2005–2006, under the same title. It celebrated its 112th Anniversary in 2006–2007 under the title of 'International Women in Leadership'.

My daughter currently attends but has been very unwell with a long term condition. The way the staff have consistently "gone the extra mile" for her and us shows a level of care that is exceptional. As a parent that is the most important thing and I would happily recommend the school to anyone considering sending their daughter there.

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.
