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.

Dental Surgeries

Paddington Dental Practice

17 Craven Rd, Paddington, London W2 3BP, UK – 020 7723 6106

Dr. Gursharon Dhariwal has changed my perspective of dentists. She is an extremely conscientious, gentle and caring dental practitioner. My dental health is of utmost importance to her and I have never felt better about my teeth and gums. I no longer feel anxious about visiting the dentist as I know my treatment will be pain-free, pleasant and full of laughter! Thank you for looking after me so well!

I have long term health problems and suffer with anxiety, but Andy, the dentist makes my appointments a more comfortable experience. I can not fault his treatment of me in the least, but my review focuses on the reception staff. Unfortunately, because of my poor health I had to cancel my appointment in excess of four hours of advance notice. I would not have tolerated the treatment at that time due to a virus. But the receptionist was extremely condescending and rude when "telling me off" for cancelling "last minute" and that I could be taken off their client list. I informed them at the earliest opportunity considering there was no answer when I rang earlier! I found this extremely distressing at a time when I was feeling very poorly. Unfortunately I am undergoing a treatment that requires me to finish attendance but following that I will be looking for a new dentist. This is no way to treat patients.

PS Dental Care Soho

38 Poland St, Soho, London W1F 7LY, UK – 020 7437 6383

I have been seeing Antonis for years, he has done fabulous work on my teeth and I get compliments all the time now. Tatiana and Vladka are also helpful and caring. I would highly recommend this practice.

I have had the pleasure of being Antonis's patient for a few years now. We have had to do a complete smile make over which included a sinus lift, crowns, veneers and several implants. The quality and standard of his work is outstanding. I have been extremely pleased and impressed with the results. Not only is Antonis a super talented dentist, but wonderful person as well. The entire staff of the practice is top notch and the facilities and premises state of the art. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough.

Stockwell Dental Practice

9 Stockwell Rd, London SW9 9AU, UK – 020 7274 5678

The reception staff are friendly and professional. I didn't see the dentist, only the hygienist, which was a lovely girl and done a great job in my mouth with the deep cleaning.

London Doctors Clinic

101D, 18 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3QL, UK – 020 8712 9378

Easy to find. Easy to make online appointments. Very reasonable prices compared to most. The consultancy fee is not mentioned - so the £155 is actually £210. The men's toilets- for the urine sample - are downstairs through public areas. Results are quick, staff are friendly.

Very easy to book an appointment. The clinic is very central. The staff is very friendly and the doctors listen what you have to say and give you time to explain the situation that brought you there without rushing. The blood tests were sent on the same date that you took the samples with an email explaining the results.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

1906A, Portland House, Bressenden Pl, Westminster, London SW1E 5RS, UK – 020 8712 9378

Lovely doctors. Very helpful and understanding. Last minute appointments available easily

Very efficient, friendly and professional. Would highly recommend them.

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.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

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.


University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street

16-18 Westmoreland St, Marylebone, London W1G 8PH, UK – 020 3456 7898

Probably one of the best. Considering it’s NHS you could mistake it for being private. Some of the best consultants here, up to date with the very latest technology, some amazing stuff they do here. My only criticism would be after procedures in the ward, there are very few staff compared to a general hospital, buts that’s down to government cut backs. Appointments get changed a lot, this again I would say to lack of staff. Staff are very friendly, not found them to be unfriendly as some have suggested, and I have been coming here for around 3 years on regular visits. Keep up the good work😊👍

Had an emergency visit to the hospital last week. must admit the people were really nice

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Chelsea Old Church

64 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea, London SW3 5LT, UK – 020 7795 1019

This is a magnificent Church nestled right on Chelsea Embankment by the River Thames. Steeped in history and a "must visit" place if you have time when over in London. A beautiful sculpture of Sir Thomas More in the front of the Church with a memorial dedicated to Sir Hans Sloane. This area took a real hammering during WWII and the blitz and there are centuries of history attached to this Church. A "must see" put it on your itinerary.

Situated close to Chelsea Embankment, a short walk from Battersea bridge, Chelsea Old Church appears as a rather unprepossessing, modern-looking red brick building. There are some nice leafy gardens around, but from the outside it is totally unremarkable. The church itself dates back to around the 13th century, although was much modified over the years, with significant additions in Tudor period and later. *****

Battersea Seventh-Day Adventist Church

Priory Hall, Prince Of Wales Dr, London SW8 4BL, UK – 020 7498 1868

Building a little date but the worship experience is great. Lots of seniors with wonderful experiences to share. The sign post is not visible from outside the compound. But its right after the bus stop on the same side as the bus stop.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Buckingham Gate

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.

Royal Opera House Restaurant

Royal Opera House, Bow St, Covent Garden, London WC2E 9DD, UK – 020 7212 9254

Local espetacular para ver bons espetáculos, regado a bom e sofisticados drinks no coração de Londres.

17:30から空いてるし、メニューは事前にわかる(逆に指定しなければならないですが、事前に辞書を引いてじっくり選べる)し開幕前なのか幕間なのか選べる。味も良いし工夫されたメニューです。サーブする人も良い人ばかり。 但しそれなりのお値段です!なので四つ星。でも五つと迷いました

Galvin Restaurants

19 Newman St, Fitzrovia, London W1T 1PF, UK – 020 7299 0444

I have been to many of the Galvin Restaurants. Each of them offer a unique experience and a lovely twist of French cooking. Galvin La Chapelle is absolutely stunning and the crab lasagna is one of my favourite of the Galvin brothers’ signature dishes. Galvin HOP offers a relaxed ambiance and their Tarte flambée is delicious. The Athenaeum offers lovely afternoon tea and their bar is very stunning, a great venue for a Friday or Saturday night cocktail. I have also had the chance to venture the Galvin Green Man in Chelmsford which is less than an hour from London. Since they’ve opened, they won many awards including a Bib Gourmand and that’s not surprising. With lovely surrounding countryside, you can enjoy their Galvin’s classics, some lovely seasonal dishes or if you are in the mood even some pub grub. Definitely worth the ride! I can’t recommend Galvin restaurants enough and wish them many more years of success.

Not bad but would not go again

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.

Crampton Primary School

23 A Iliffe St, London SE17 3QA, UK – 020 7735 2219

I had fun the teachers were really cool and fun. You should bring your child 2 this school and I think they will have a good time. I had been going 2 that 🏫 for ever and remember the last time I went there like it was yesterday. I have really good memories there and bad ones. My friends were the light of my world when I went there. I thank crampton 4 the school that I got into ( Grey Coat Hospital) and also how I have been able 2 make friends easily. THANK U CRAMPTON

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.
