very friendly and helpful Nationwide branch, has 3 cash machines inside. swapped from a Natwest account holder to Nationwide and its been great.

The service here is always friendly

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!

Tile shop

Islington Town Hall

Upper St, London N1 2UD, UK – 020 7527 2000

Weddings here are lovely! Our registrar was great, the room was beautiful and it's super good value! The only problem is one security guard who was really rude to me and my guests, and the 'interview' beforehand where they write out your certificate takes so long and leaves your guests sitting waiting for ages, even when you are there way in advance! There should definitely be a different process for this. Why my groom couldn't do his before our guests were seated. Super awkward, and i was left in a small waiting room for ages and then upstairs doing the interview while my guests shuffled awkwardly. Lovely ceremony, lovely day, gorgeous room, but this makes no sense. And get rid of that horrible guard.

Love Islington Town Hall! Especially the Council Chamber : a wedding in the round is the best! The registrars are really lovely too and relaxed and allow photographers free rein to capture the joy!

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.

The Dental Surgery

The Corn Exchange, 55 Mark Ln, London EC3R 7NE, UK – 020 7680 1800

I saw Kate Yeaton on a filling and must say the service was 100% excellent!! The way she explained at any point in time what she was doing was very helpful for someone like me who is afraid of dentists. The endproduct - immaculate! Thank you so much for that precise work. I can only recommend that clinic to everybody!

The Dental Surgery is a gem I stumbled across many years ago and I want to express my satisfaction for the excellent customer service and especially to thank Ben Molineaux for his excellent work and to Vicky, his lovely and warm assistant. He is very professional, a sympathetic & kind person who always gave me the best advice on the treatments I needed. I felt in safe hands from the very beginning and I can't thank you enough. THANK YOU! Maria Lorena

Borough Dental Care

305-307 Borough High St, London SE1 1JH, UK – 020 7407 3883

Fantastic staff and service. My whole family go here and we feel very lucky to have such a good practice close to us. The front desk staff are always polite and friendly (can’t be said of all the patients) and my dentist is excellent too.

Puresmile

29 Roman Rd, London E2 0HU, UK – 020 8980 2890

The two male dentist/specialist I see are absolutely AMAZING!!! I would never go anywhere else & hope they are working there along time. The building doesn’t look too great & is quite small but don’t be put off by that. Would recommend 100%

Reception were great. Dr Tina was very informative and professional. excellent overall service

Dentists

Liberty Dentists

1, 65 Redchurch St, London E2 7DJ, UK – 020 3137 9965

An excellent dentist the quality of work is very high. Other private dentists in the locality have not given as good a service.

Very, very professional. And ethical. They will do exactly what you need, no more no less. It has probably been one of the best experiences I had at a dentist. I went there with a gum problem and the whole journey was very caring towards their patients. No pain at all, friendly, patient and always thinking the way I was feeling while I was getting my treatment done. I would recommend this dentist to anyone.

Chrysanth Dental Care

493 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E2 9BU, UK – 020 3620 1113

I had a great experience today at Chrysanth dental care. Dr Singh was very friendly and his dental work is brilliant. Was very pleased at the end of my treatment. Cheers Sunny! Will definitely be returning for more treatment and would highly recommend to others!

Great experience! I had an accident playing football and I needed an emergency visit. I got in touch on their website at 1am and they got back to me the following morning and booked me in for the afternoon. Dr David was incredibly nice and considerate: not only did he pushed my teeth straight again painlessly (they had bent inward), he also explained me the situation, showed me the x-ray he took and told me what all the possible future scenarios were. After two weeks I went back for a check and he told me everything was better than expected and I didn't need to take further actions at least for the time being.

Pickering Dental Surgery

103-104 Upper St, London N1 1QN, UK – 020 7359 6103

Great experience. A long wait (coffee shop across the street made this easier) but overall a top class service! Daniel was informative, professional and fixed my chipped tooth beautifully. Thanks to all the team here!

Absolutely fantastic and helpful! It was my first time and could not be happier. Walked in, filled the forms and was with the doctor within 10 minutes. Well done!

Dr G Marlowe - De Beauvoir Surgery

30 Hertford Rd, London N1 5QT, UK – 020 7923 3684

I decided to write a review as my circumstances have changed and I found that the staff here was very understandable. I've been with this surgery since the old location. Someone recommended to me based on their experience and I must say that I don't regret it at all. The staff is incredible good, from the receptionists who are atentive and very polite to the professionalism and great empathy the doctors have shown. I also mention the nurse whom I saw her a few times and she left me a very good impression each time( I am scared of needles but she was very gentle and lovely). I wish all surgeries will be great as this one. Well done to the team!

I have been a patient of this surgery for many years, since the old location. Many of the doctors have been with this surgery many years too, and have great knowledge, ability and customer service. The new doctors are also very impressive. Can be difficult to get an appointment within a short number or days, but have nearly always been seen on the day when it has been an emergency. In the climate we are in I regard this still very good.

East Street Surgery

301 East St, London SE17 2SX, UK – 020 7703 4550

All the Doctors are great and very thorough, but our Doctor is Gavin Steele, he knows us well,and has helped me so much, the reception staff are lovely, I owe my life to the surgery, keep it up everyone

Very impressed. Dr Abraham is very thorough and you never feel rushed. I wouldn't mind if I had to wait a little .. but my appointments have always been on time. The folks who process repeat prescriptions are amazing.. usually done within the day. I use the online service for everything and there are even appointments available the same week!

London Doctors Clinic

3.7, 344-354 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8BP, UK – 020 8712 9378

Amazing service. Highly skilled professional, caring and empathic, quick appointment, zero wait, affordable rate. Saw Dr. Mookhtadir Ansar at King’s Cross location and am thoroughly impressed. Have never written review for a doctor before but feel compelled after visit with him. Highly recommend him.

It's really easy to book appointments online. All doctors I've seen here have been very professional and helpful. For what you pay it's a great service.

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

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

2 Manor Pl, London SE17 3BH, UK – 020 7701 5655

This is my second home, if you are truly interested in learning about Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, then look no further; all your question answered; if you seek Spiritual nourishment; come and worship the way Christ would have you worship.

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.

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 Clement Danes

Central Church of the Royal Air Force, Strand, London WC2R 1DH, UK – 020 7242 8282

St. Clement Danes is a nice church to visit on the Strand. It is a small Baroque style building with a long history and some interesting things to see both inside and outside the church building. St. Clement Danes church is also referred to as the Church of the Royal Air Force. Unfortunately, St. Clement Danes is located on an island in the middle of the Strand, with regular road traffic on both sides. This makes visits to the outside of the church a bit noisy. However, the building is large enough that the noise doesn't seem to bother that much once you are inside. The history of St. Clement Danes stretches back to the 9th century where tradition suggests that a church was built by Danes who had settled here. Some believe the Danes named the church after St. Clement, patron saint of mariners. There is later reference to the church in William of Normandy's Doomsday book (1086) and it is possible that the church was rebuilt at some stage during his reign as well as again during the middle ages when St. Clement Danes was under the care of the Knights of Templar. By the 17th century the church had fallen into disrepair. While it survived the Great Fire of 1666, it was demolished shortly after due to its poor condition and then rebuilt in the 1680s by Christopher Wren, who designed the new church in Baroque style. A steeple was added by James Gibbs in 1717, completing this beautiful church. Unfortunately, the church sustained heavy bombing damage, gutting its interior in 1941. During the 1950s, the Royal Air Force raised funds and had the church restored. This is how you can see St. Clement Danes today. Within the church, there is a nice wooden panel works behind the alter, a late 17th century organ in the back and attractive glass-stained windows throughout the nave. There is a downstairs crypt, which you can also visit if interested. The exterior of the church is attractive and it is worth having a look at the statues which surround the building. These include the large Gladstone statue and RAF's past wartime leaders Arthur Harris and Hugh Dowding found in front of the St. Clement Danes. Behind the church, you can see a monument to Dr. Samuel Johnson, who attended services here during the 18th century. Overall, we like St. Clement Danes Church. Its history is interesting, as are its interior and exterior designs and interesting statues and monuments found outside the church. It is definitely worth a stop if you enjoy church visits.

A peaceful setting in central London with a connection to the Royal Air Force. It is named in an old rhyme about the churches of London

The best meal we've ever eaten! Steaks are huge, amazing range of side dishes and really good service! Will defo be coming back! Thank you!

One of the best steakhouses in the city/ London. Don't be put off that it's a chain. Personally I still think the original Hawksmoor is better but this rules the city establishments. Excellent choice of cuts and cattle!

Caravan Bankside

30 Great Guildford St, London SE1 0HS, UK – 020 7101 1190

Staff were friendly and very helpful with an onion allergy. The service was very quick, probably had our food within 5-10 minutes of ordering. The coffee was nice although I wasn’t a fan of the milk. They do offer dairy plus various non dairy milks. The menu looks delicious and there were multiple things I wanted to try. I went with the chia pudding and it was huge. Amazing value for money as for £6 you would normally get about a third of what was served. Place was comfy and relaxing

♿️✅Wheelchair accessible via chair escalator at the front, easy seating at the tale as well with loads of room. Great brunch selection here, quite a decent selection off of the menu for average to high prices, staff can take a while to get to you but it was worth it! I had the pork hash and it was great, probably a bit on the small portion size though so I had to order a side. Remember to click like if you thought my review was helpful, thanks! :)

Wagamama Tower Hill

2b Tower Hill, London EC3N 4EE, UK – 020 7283 5897

The food and service were so good the first night that we thought we'd go back the second night. Unfortunately the second night was disappointing. My meal was totally forgotten and only arrived once my family had finished theirs. When it did finally arrive it was inconsistent with what I had, had the previous night. The curry sauce was watery and not nearly as flavourful and I had two bored children and a husband watching me eat every mouthful. I will say that they make excellent healthy kids meals though!

Very good. Quick service. Very nice food. Not too expensive.even Our children found something simple to eat . Normally they are very fussy;) recommended

Fantastic nursery, they are lovely staff and really work with parents on the development of your child. My daughter loves it..

Old Church Nursery School

Walter Terrace Off, Bromley St, London E1 0RJ, UK – 020 7790 2824

Excellent nursery. Our son stayed only one year (Sept 2016 to July 2017). I cannot thank enough the teachers and all the staff for the amazing job they have done. Tips: applications to the nursery should be done once the child turns two. You should call to book a visit to the school. You will then be given all the necessary documents to fill out. Breakfast club (8:15-9:15) and afternoon club available (15:15-16:30, £3). Forest school every two weeks (I think), my child loved it!

Absolutely fantastic nursery. Amazing, dedicated,caring staff. So much for children to do. Cannot rate highly enough and Will be so sad when my son has to leave

This school put a new modern way of teaching in our minds! There's alot of reception classes which tells me they are helping more and more children to learn. They take care of your allergies and provide healthy food. Definatly reccomended!

Very good school especially the nursery

Hanover Primary School

Noel Rd, Islington, London N1 8BD, UK – 020 7689 8949

A friendly and supportive school with a wonderfully welcoming community. The focus on reading at the school is truly outstanding with both of our children now avid, curious and rampant readers. The new head has a clear agenda of what he would like to improve one school and their seems to be an excellent learning culture throughout the teaching staff.

My daughter is nearing the end of her time at Hanover and it has been the happiest seven years. She has thoroughly embraced all aspects of school life and enjoyed every moment of her time there, making good friends and strong bonds with staff. Just watch the children banging on the doors to get in in the morning! Happy school.

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.

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.
