Little Ones (UK) Ltd

3 Hanson St, Fitzrovia, London W1W 6TB, UK – 020 7183 0309

My experience with Little Ones London has far exceeded expectations, thanks to the support and dedication of consultant Taryn Welsby. From the initial point of registration, Taryn was proactive, patient and encouraging in organising interviews and job trials, and has continued to provide exceptional support and assistance throughout the process. She is approachable, listens carefully and is quick to integrate feedback and tailor her search to your requirements. Communication is a strong point in their service, being timely, consistent and friendly. I felt that Taryn understood my needs really well and she absolutely went the extra mile to ensure that I was placed in my ideal role. I greatly appreciate her hard work and am so excited to start my new position with a wonderful family! Thank you so much to Taryn and the team at Little Ones - it was so fortunate that I chose to register with this agency, and I warmly recommend their service to others.

I really have had five star experience with Chloe. The candidates she provided me with were absolutely brilliant and the perfect match. My children have always rated them ten out of ten and on a personal level I loved being with them, So polite, helpful and fun. I really couldn't have had a better experience. Thank you Chloe!

Riding Schools & Equestrian Centres

Hyde Park Stables

63 Bathurst Mews, London W2 2SB, UK – 020 7723 2813

My daughter wanted to celebrate her 5th birthday by riding a pony. Upon arrival, we were met by warm and friendly staff. Hats and boots are free of charge. It was my daughter’s first lesson and I’m completely inexperienced with horses so we placed a lot of trust in the stables/staff. Trish was the allocated instructor and she’s absolutely brilliant with kids. My daughter returned from her lesson bursting with excitement and on the way home through Hyde Park she pointed out the riding route. They made a young girl very very happy!

I had a ride at Hyde Park Stables the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the horses are clearly very much loved and cared for. As a horse rider I understand the full necessity of having to be kept on a lead rope, it was very busy in the park and they are taking reasonable precautions, i feel that those who know about horses would understand the risk and be happy to enjoy the sights and a leisurely ride even if you are on a lead rope. Thank you to Ivan and Millie for a wonderful day!

Vauxhall City Farm

165 Tyers St, Lambeth, London SE11 5HS, UK – 020 7582 4204

It was such a great discovery when we found this farm in the outskirts of central London! It's tiny, but there is a good variety of friendly animals who look well looked after and quite eager to greet visitors. If feeding them, make sure you only use seeds provided by the farm. It must be so good for children of the local area to have a farm at walking distance - otherwise they may never have got the chance to see a farm animal in real life! Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely little farm. Not big but it's free and the little ones will love it. Most animals can be petted and fed. Little food pellets can be bought in handfuls from a little dispenser on site. The dispenser takes twenty pence pieces. It's twenty pence for a few kid sized handfuls so be sure to come with a good few 20p pieces,as the little ones and bigger children will enjoy feeding the animals. All proceeds go toward upkeep of farm.

Barbican Centre

Silk St, London EC2Y 8DS, UK – 020 7638 4141

One of London’s quirkier venues, a bizarre architectural project that realistically should not work but does, few places are quite like this. A mix of shows, theatre, exhibitions, cinema and quirky stores. Sit back and soak up this 60s architectural vibe, with its prominence of red tones, from lighting to floor. Sit inside and chill, or step outside and watch the water feature. Fancy something different pop into the garden area inside one of the building, see the plants and visit the terrapins. Great exhibition space, lovely teams of people, extraordinary exclusive film performances, especially of movies that have gone off the grid.

Great venue for a concert or event. The architecture of the building is also unique and interesting. The cafe/restaurant is enjoyable on a warm day when you can sit out. The building is free to the public and you can use it to study etc. Not worth visiting as a tourist site on its own but if something is on here it will be a great opportunity to visit a historic building.

Paul Mellon Centre

16 Bedford Square, Bloomsbury, London WC1B 3JA, UK – 020 7580 0311

Excellent and very helpful institution. I am researching a family member (artist in 19th century) and they had a good range of sources to look at and were very accommodating with their time. I will return soon. Thanks

Quiet and calm in the centre of London.

Old Diorama Arts Centre

Regent's Place, 201 Drummond St, Kings Cross, London NW1 3FE, UK – 020 7383 0727

Diorama hosted our exhibition and symposium and couldn't have been more helpful. From the initial meeting they were generous with their time and enthusiastic and supportive of all our ideas. The space is versatile, beautiful and fully accessible, and has the special atmosphere of a place where a huge range of creative activities are happening at any one time. The entire team are kind and energetic and have made working here an absolute joy. We're looking forward to finding ways we can work with Old Diorama again in future.

We love it at Old Diorama Arts Centre and have been there since it opened. Jacob and the team are friendly and helpful - on email, on the phone and in person. The rooms are great for our massage courses - plenty of desks, chairs and space to put up massage tables. The location is easily accessible via public transport. The reception is light and airy with some great artwork and a community vibe. Lots to like and teas and coffee on tap!

Southwark Cathedral Venue Hire

Montague Close, London, Greater London SE1 9DA, London SE1 9DA, UK – 020 7367 6722

I've been to a couple of conferences here and I would recommend this venue unit, right in the heart of London. The organiser said it is affordable and for me it was very well connected, as I live away from the area and being right next to London Bridge station it has transport all over the shop to the South East and other parts of the UK. When I was there the food was good, well presented and tasty. The conferences were nicely placed next to the Cathedral so we could have tranquility while, we made our important business decisions that affected our future. If I was organising my own conference, i'd come back.

Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust

17 Stukeley Street, London WC2B 5LT, UK – 020 7404 7274

Was working there during an Erasmus project, and I've got to say, they are one of the most likable and memorable people I've had the opportunity to meet, during my stay in London. Thank you, hope we see again. :)

Nice place where to organise debates and other events.
