Banks

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.

Bank of England

Threadneedle St, London EC2R 8AH, UK – 020 7601 4444

I am a pre 2017 pound coin. Those new kids took my job. Now, I feel worthless. Thanks to the nice folks at Bank of England for giving me a place in the museum. Not quite my old job, but haven't been put in a vending machine for ages!

I went to exchange some old twenty pound bills that went out of circulation and spent some time at the museum. It was time well spent. I enjoyed learning about the history of the bank, its architects, and was intrigued about how busy and crowded it was in the bank on the dividend day. A display of all the Bank of England notes was among my favorites, and of course who would refuse touching the real gold!

Allied Irish Bank (GB)

1st, 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

Local Chambers of Commerce for SW1A 2HB. 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!

Westminster Council House, 97-113 Marylebone Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 5PT, UK – 020 7641 7500

Beautifully restored and now part of London Business School's campus

A stunning, beautifully old piece of English history! Well worth a visit! This was the former head office for Births, Deaths & Marriages in London.

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.

Dental Surgeries

Harley Street Dental Clinic

139 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 6BG, UK – 020 7486 1059

My dentist Samar Khamis at Harley street dental clinic is AMAZING, she's a real expert in her field. She is also very lovely and totally puts you at ease. She has given me the most lovely smile and has also had utmost patience with me! The day before Christmas Eve I chipped half my front tooth and had a real panic, but she saw me immediately during her lunch break to fix it before Christmas. She gives everything to her work to get the best results and I honestly couldn't recommend her more.

Samar Khamis is incredible and has completely transformed my teeth! What a great place with lovely staff. Very very impressed and would highly recommend

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.

Fantastic service and lovely staff! Almost made me forget the painful reason I was there. Thanks

Millbank Dental Care

42 Ponsonby Pl, Westminster, London SW1P 4PR, UK – 020 7828 7676

I have been going to Millbank dental care for years and they have a great team headed by Martina Syron. I remember the first time I went in having had a bad experience with another few dentists elsewhere. Martina and her team immediately put me at ease and completely changed the way I feel about dentists. So much so, that I love going and having my scale, ultrasonic and polish, which I just had today and I'm not even nervous about filings as they explain exactly what's happening and have reassuring hand on my shoulder if I look a bit nervous :) I have had bonding work, filings, teeth whitening and referrals to hospital for tooth extraction at Millbank dental care - all have been great experiences and that's why I have no hesitation to give 5 stars! I would recommend Martina and her team any day!

Excellent and efficient nurses. Martina knows her field and patients through and through. Bozis is just brilliant! Very thorough in his treatment and explains in a way I understand. Top quality practice

Dentists

Victoria Dental Centre

330 Vauxhall Bridge Rd, Victoria, London SW1V 1AA, UK – 020 7834 6161

Best dental care in London. Really good service. So happy I found a good dentist even in London, coming from Slovakia and Czech republic, where the dental care is amazing, it was shocking for me to see the standard level of dental care in the UK, which was very below my expectations. Thankfully, Victoria Dental Care saved me. I go to Spiros - he's quite a funny Greek guy, I recommend him.

5 star service! I have finally found a Dentist that I could almost say I 'enjoy' going to! Shameem Juan is my Dental practitioner and she is great! She is friendly, knowledgeable and always accommodating. The reception staff are also amazing and nothing is ever too much trouble. I would highly recommend.

Mint Dental Centre

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

I had an excellent service from Mint dental care. I have just moved to the area and it was very difficult to find a good dentist, so coming across Mint was fantastic. The dentists at Mint are very calm, professional and the service is excellent. I also had my teeth cleaned by the hygienist, who was completely professional and put my mind at ease and didn't lecture me about not flossing. Great place!

I visited Mint Dental Centre for a fixing in the wire attached to my lower teeth after orthodontics. So far I haven't had no problems at all, the attention was great, the price as well. I would highly recommend the Orthodontics dentist Antonio!!

Dentist @ W2

3-4 Norfolk Pl, Paddington, London W2 1QN, UK – 020 3773 8664

Very professional. The doctor explains all procedures very kindly. He took me even without the previous booking as an emergency case. It made my life so much easier.

The staff is very professional and the place is very clean. As for the work done, I am very pleased with it, I didn’t feel pain and I could openly talk about my concerns with the dentist. I highly recommend it!

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 - Private GP

4.1, Alpha House, 100 Borough High St, London SE1 1LB, UK – 020 8712 9378

I visited London Bridge not long ago, as I was feeling extremely unwell in work. My GP had no same day appointments and suggested to call back the following morning, but I just could not leave it that long. I googled doctors local to me and this was the nearest to work. I saw the doctor within the 15 minute time slot, got my medication and felt much better by the end of the week. Amazing, convenient service, and great staff including the helpful receptionist who offered me water. Definitely a recommendation for friends/family within the busy City life. S. Jane

After 2 months of trying to get tests and good sense out of the NHS, and a lot of stress in the process, everything I needed was achieved in a single day by a lovely London Doctor. Such efficiency and such sound and caring advice was the most pleasant surprise to me. I wholeheartedly recommend them and will definitely use them again if I need to.

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.

National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery

Queen Square, London WC1N 3BG, UK – 020 3456 7890

Whilst were sleeping, the NHS is still running and Teresa May is a mug. What was a very distressing matter, the out of hours staff ,Bussy, Nosizo and Rindai were the most helpful members of staff. It was a very personal issue and each individual from their own department ensured I got to the right place. The NHS needs more employees like those mentioned. Cannot fault them.

spent about 2 weeks here just before Xmas following a stroke. staff were amazing as were the doctors. amazing experience.

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.

GREAT HOMEOPATHIC HOSPITAL & allied alternative treatments​ HOSPITAL, NOT ONLY IN LONDON,BUT ALSO IN EUROPE, FAMOUS WORLD WIDE.

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

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.

Unit 15426, Box 6945 Rathbone Square, Rathbone Pl, Fitzrovia, London W1A 6US, UK – 01684 252583

I run the IT department for a large law firm (500+ desktops) and we use Surplex as the service is always fast and the drivers friendly and helpful. We like to charity donations this company make and also the data policy is first class. We have used them for about five years now and I don't think we will ever move away to someone else - there is no need. I don't normally write reviews but Surplex asked me too and, to be honest, I was only too happy to help as they've always bent over backwards to accommodate my requirements.

I have used Surplex for our IT / computer recycling from both their London office and their HQ in Malvern. They are professional, speedy and their reporting is first class. The online aspect of retrieving documentation is both fast and secure. We have a particular need for data security which is why we use Surplex, they do not wipe like some other companies we have used they actually shred hard disk drives and in fact any that carries data is treated in the same manner. Mark, the MD, is very knowledgeable and completely down to earth.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Whitehall

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

Tas Restaurant

33 The Cut, South Bank, London SE1 8LF, UK – 020 7928 2111

Good food but irritatingingly let down like so many places these days with an underhand 12.5%= service charge , if you're charging for food why do you need a service charge? Shame really as I'd have gone back otherwise

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.

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

68 Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4HP, UK – 020 7352 4441

I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant, which is my favourite in the world. The food (flavour, creativity, presentation) is of the highest calibre, the staff is well informed, kind and attentive, the atmosphere is elegant yet calm and intimate due to the small number of tables, and everything is impeccable- right down to the pristine kitchen to which I was pleased to be offered a visit... it’s absolutely perfect in every way.

This place is simply amazing and the food... oh...my...god! I didn't know it was possible for food to taste that good. Classy, delicious and not a bad price considering what you actually get. I highly recommend a tasting menu if they have one on

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.

Reay Primary School

Reay School House, Hackford Rd, London SW9 0EN, UK – 020 7735 2978

Reay gave me an excellent education it has helped me so very much .Reay gives children fun and educational trips .

This is a brilliant school. My son has progess so much since attending this school. The school is brilliant at communicating with parent's. The staff work extremely hard.The teacher's and Teachers assistance really encouraged your children to be confident and achieve.

I used to be a student there, in 2010-2011 and I've gotta say one of the best moments of my life were at ICS! Miss it a lot...

The best academic and personal training to succeed in a complex world. As an academic and mother of two, I recommend ICS as the best option for international students.

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.
