  • This is truly one of London's finest places, great festivals in beautiful surroundings. look out for events that are put on here and come down theres so much going on here on different days to suit all types. when the sun out it is an absolute must 5 stars all the way
  • Love this place, nice exhibitions and events. Plus even if you're not going to any event this is a good stop as a tourist for a toilet break and a nice drink/snack from the cafe. There is a lot of seating throughout the building and is also a good place for meetups as well as studying.
  • Great place to spend some time watching people. Food is available but I felt, everything is quite expensive. Have some time to spend? Great, spend it here.
  • Best cultural place in London. This is one of London's finest venues. Love it. It's one if the most special places in the UK. Awesome festivals, great events + brill food market. If you are visiting London - do not miss this out.
  • A wonderful brute of a building. Lovely location near to the river and nice wide walkways. Inside there is always something happening, lots of art and music. All sorts of food and drink venues around and a great summer evening stroll.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
