Banks

Bank of Ireland (UK) Plc

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.

Allied Irish Bank (GB)

1st Floor Berkeley Square House, 4-19 Berkeley Square, Mayfair, London W1J 6BR, UK – 020 7629 8881

The staff were very helpful to give me directions around the city. Very clean

Adam & Co plc

6 Adelaide St, London WC2N 4HZ, UK – 020 7839 4615

The service I have received from Adam and Co has been exemplary, in my opinion every company should take note and follow suit. Mary in the 24 hour call centre has gone above and beyond to help my elderly mother. They are patient, kind and have worked extremely hard to find a solution to our issue. I cannot express my thanks enough to her for her outstanding customer service. In this day and age it is rare for such a huge company to treat their customers with such a personal service. When I have enough money to bank privately I will be going straight to them with all my money.

Building Societies

Nationwide Building Society

415 Strand, London WC2R 0NS, UK – 0800 554 0460

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!

There fast and straight to the point. Professional "get it done" people.

Nationwide

157-159 Victoria St, Westminster, London SW1E 5NA, UK – 0800 554 1790

Nice modern branch, and plenty of staff on hand. Lunchtimes can get a bit busy. I hope Nationwide updates more branches to operate and look like this one.

Great service, hardly any queues and there are always plenty of staff if you need any help. Oh and if you finish work a bit late they have later opening times!

Yorkshire Building Society

Mimosa House, 12 Princes St, Mayfair, London W1B 2LL, UK – 020 7499 6678

The outside staircase is a great option for group shots and there are several nice spots around Kings Road for further wedding photography. Great venue, great location.

Dental Surgeries

Mint Dental Centre

41 Clapham Rd, London SW9 0JD, UK – 020 7587 0100

I cannot recommend Mint enough, from the moment I registered the staff from reception to the dentists have been so welcoming, kind and attentive. I also recently started orthodontic work with Dr Antonio and his assistant; they are not only amazing at their job but they're also extremely warm and makes you feel instantly at ease. You won't look back if you join this practice.

I have to say, I was exceptionally impressed. The practice is clean, calm and the staff are extremely professional. I was seen by an NHS dentist bang on my appointment time and made to feel completely at ease. Luckily I am not currently in need of any extensive treatment however should that change I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Stockwell Dental Practice

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

Great, efficient service from this practice. Appointment brought forward because I had some pain. Dealt with very professionally by Alana. Wld highly recommend her and the practice generally.

Good work but unfriendly reception and long waiting in a small overcrowded reception. Seems very expensive. Needs updating and modernisation inside.

Oasis Dental Care Belgravia

2 Eccleston St, Belgravia, London SW1W 9LN, UK – 020 7730 4948

Last night I had my first ever Root Canal Treatment. Dr David Wilmot was absolutely amazing. My biggest fear was that I'd feel something but I did not feel a thing!!! Anyway, I've woken up this morning and I don't need any painkillers, I can eat and drink hot and cold food again, and I can bite again. I am very grateful to David for getting me out of pain painlessly, and to Ewa for making me feel at ease when I was scared. Thank you :)

Such a great team and Dr Cuddy is really caring. Makes going to the dentist almost like an appointment at the hairdresser

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

This is an exceptional service for people with a busy schedule or limited time in London. I am an expat and need support in managing my diabetes. The LDC has provided a fast turn around on test results, follow-up advice and issue of prescriptions, at very reasonable prices.

I got an appointment 40 minutes after my phone call. Dr Rita Salvador was very thorough & efficient. An easy central location. I was very pleased with the service from LDG. Highly recommended.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

201, 107 Fleet St, London EC4A 2AB, UK – 020 8712 9378

Great service: convenient location, good choice for booking, received the report of my health check assessment (including blood tests) in 1 day

Excellent doctor. Thorough questioning. Very good service.

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.

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😊👍

Staff seem very more focused on getting the paperwork done rather than taking taking a moment to acknowledge people. Very target driven particularly in comparison to some other London hospitals that I have been to. A little customer service related training would go a long way! The food in the canteen was... (I’ll put it down to Hospital aliment) not worth the money. Parking is limited and dang expensive (street parking only) rather commute if you are able to.

Local hospitals - community hospitals and hospitals with A&E departments for SW1E 6HQ.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

Reality Church London

Old Building, Houghton St, London WC2A 2AE, UK

I attended Tim's church in Los Angeles and I absolutely loved his sermons. They were real, passionate and related to our times today. His preaching is from the heart and all points to Jesus. What an amazing pastor who truly is a man after God's heart. Blessings to the church in London. I hope the Word there spreads out to the people of London and catches their hearts as the real Truth of Jesus comes back to Europe where so many people have fallen from faith because of the way certain churches have been pushing people away from our Lord. Tim and his heart on fire for the Lord has the power to bring people back to the Truth for God's great purposes. The people of Europe need to return to God. They need to rekindle and cherish a personal and deep relationship with God. Prayers for all that is done with Reality London and for all who attend there.

We felt accepted and loved from day one. This is the first church we've been to where the desire to love people is actively sought after by everyone who attends.

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.

Absolutely fantastic. My wife and I truly enjoyed a wonderful tasting experiences. All staffs were professional and friendly, and the whole atmosphere was truly cozy and comfortable. Foods were definitely the best. Every dish was perfectly prepared, decorated, and served. We were so excited and truly happy with everything in this restaurant. We like to visit London again, even only for visiting this restaurant again!!

It’s a hard review. 3 star with no wow.... very busy and overcrowded dining room. Busy staff forever in your eyeline although they are all professionals. Nothing memorable about the food, but the food was good. #oxymoron. Ahh, a flashback. Everybody left the desert!! Lemon something. Wasn’t worth the calorie intake...

Nursery and Preschools

MACE Montessori Nursery School

38-42 Millman St, London WC1N 3EW, UK – 020 7242 5842

Miss Chris-Jayne and her team at the nursery was nothing but professional and welcoming. I felt at ease allowing my son to participate in their classroom activities. The teachers were warm and welcoming, where I found the children interacting and having such a wonderful time. Clearly, a lot of hard work and thought in this bright and colourful nursery is carried out to ensure the best possible environment for our children to be nurtured at such a crucial learning age. I thoroughly recommend to all!

Very happy with my sons progress at the nursery, the teachers have done a great job with him, he is very independent, well behaved and very sociable since he started the nursery. I am very appreciative to the teachers for the progress he has shown. When I pick him up at 6pm I can see he has had a great playful day as when we go home all he wants to do is rest and sleep. Highly recommend it.

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

I had my primary schooling here during the time that I lived in Lambeth. All I can remember was a teacher called Mr. Stalk and our headmaster from Northern Ireland.

Public & Preparatory Schools

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.

Westminster School

Little Dean's Yard, Great Smith St, Westminster, London SW1P 3PF, UK – 020 7963 1000

Got Highest mark in course very very good teachers.

Westminster’s origins can be traced to a charity school established by the Benedictine monks of Westminster Abbey. Its continuous existence is certain from the early fourteenth century. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1540, Henry VIII personally ensured the School’s survival by statute. Elizabeth I, confirmed royal patronage in 1560 and is celebrated as the School’s Foundress. For several hundred years the School continued to be joined with Westminster Abbey, forming one collegiate foundation, until the 1868 Public Schools Act gave the School independence. Then, in 1943, the School expanded its educational scope by forming the Under School, educating boys aged 7-11. Initially both sections of the School shared a site, as the Under School began with just 17 boys. However, we experienced fairly rapid growth and by 1950 were educating 80 boys. So, in 1951, we secured our own premises in Eccleston Square. Yet as pupil numbers continued to increase during the sixties and seventies it became apparent that larger premises were required and in 1981 the Under School moved again to its present site overlooking the Westminster playing fields in Vincent Square.
