Very helpful and generous team!!!!

Harley Street Dentist

66 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 7HD, UK – 020 7636 3727

Very good dentist. I would recommend to everyone. Dr Maurer is amazing professional with amazing skills. Keep the good work.

This is a BEAUTIFUL dental surgery in Harley Street. The dentist truly is amazing!!! He is gentle and takes his time when explaining things to you, he doesn't watch the clock and will not let you leave until you have the biggest smile on your face. I asked for a few business cards because this place really is a hidden gem. The staff are so lovely and you will feel as if you have known these guys for years! I have gone from hiding my smile to showing it off at every opportunity.

South Bank Dentists

County Hall, Riverside Building, Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7PB, UK – 020 7183 3558

I cannot recommend the team at South Bank Dentists highly enough. As someone who has always had a phobia of the dentist chair I now go there without any anxiety at all. Friendly people who genuinely care about you and your teeth !

Excellent dental care in calm surroundings. The whole team are very caring and thorough. I would definitely recommend this dental practice.

Old Kent Road Surgery

182-184 Old Kent Rd, London SE1 5TY, UK – 020 7252 6272

I was sure that nowhere can't be worse than our last GP, so with my partner we have decided to make a change few months ago. I'm very positively surprised with the reception staff, how they are doing impossible to help patients and not once, not twice was given more help than I expected. Feel surrounded with care and help in every occasion. Can't say nothing but the best about this surgery! Keep up with the good work you are providing guys :) and thank you one more time for all the support you have given on many occasions. Thanks to you dealing with chronic disease became less stressful and difficult on daily basis.

After experience with my previous GP I'm very satisfied with this clinic. Staff is very kind and helpful. They always try the best to help patients. When I had problem with an appointment at hospital they called and help me sort this out. I never had problem with booking an appointment. Doctors are nice and always hear my case to help me the best way.

East Street Surgery

301 East St, London SE17 2SX, UK – 020 7703 4550

The email repeat prescription service seems to work very well. On one occasion I'd forgotten to state which medication I needed and they called me straight away to confirm. Today (Tuesday) I called to book a GP appointment and it's for this Thursday! All in all a fantastic service.

Being using the centre for over 20 years. It has problems like any service but the staff are dedicated and friendly. Additionally you can visit the gp if you have an acute issue at 9:30am everyday. Speaking with my friends who use other services they say they would have to go to A&E. The centre could do with additional funding but I have given five stars for the staff as they are excellent and do their absolute best for their patients. I've read the reviews here and I won't lie the waiting can be a pain but you have to take all factors into consideration before making a sweeping remark. The gp is one of the most populated in the area and till now have not been given adequate funding. You only have to look at the equipment they use and filing method to know they need additional support. I can book an appointment to see the doctor within 1-2 weeks. Me personally I'm very grateful. Thank you East Street Gp.

Falmouth Road Practice

78 Falmouth Rd, London SE1 4JW, UK – 020 7407 4101

Just queued up at 8am, was 7th in the queue, got an appt for 10.10am. Saw the doctor, got good advice and an x-ray appt at Guys. What is there not to like? I'm not saying it couldn't be better, but the NHS is in crisis and Brexit won't help.

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.

St. Thomas' Hospital

Westminster Bridge Rd, Lambeth, London SE1 7EH, UK – 020 7188 7188

We had our first child here and had an initially poor then brilliant experience. First the bad: be warned that the car park can get pretty busy so if you're driving, best to drop your partner of before going to park. Also, until it is agreed that your partner is genuinely close to giving birth, they're is a complete lack of adequate care and attention. Despite coming in clearly in stress and last stages of labor, my girlfriend was sent to sit in a waiting room outside the ward for 20 mins before someone came to check on her. But once she was properly admitted the care was great, friendly professional, attentive. Midwife and birthing pool were the perfect solution for us and the after care was kind and thoughtful

Fantastic Modern Hospital in the heart of London. This Hospital must have the best views in the whole of the UK. I was sitting in a waiting room overlooking the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, it was a wonderful sunny crisp winters morning watching the boats go by. The facilities and staff are amazing, they were so kind and thoughtful, they just couldn't do enough for me, even though they are underpaid and over worked. I will be choosing this hospital every time, Thank you St Thomas'.

Saint Bartholomew's Hospital

London Bridge Hospital

27 Tooley St, London SE1 2PR, UK – 020 7407 3100

A fantastic hospital in every way. I can’t praise it highly enough. The nurses are professional, knowledgeable and caring. Nothing is too much trouble. Nearly all the nurses that looked after me were from Europe and were without exception outstanding. I hope that Brexit will not stop these superb people from coming to work here. Thank you all.

I had a course of physiotherapy at London Bridge Hospital for my neck. The therapist was very knowledgeable and professional and helped my symptoms. One of the biggest positives was that she helped me to see where I was going wrong and I felt empowered to return to my goals. The department is also based in the Shard with a brand new, well equipped gym as an added bonus! I would highly recommend going here for treatment.

Visited at around the evening, and is possibly missed any visiting events. The church is great and there's a little park and garden at the back. It's nice and quiet, comparing to the feeling of tired walking around the noise busy streets around the area. Maybe I should research for some fact about the church before writing this guide. I did have a good time spending few minutes sitting there.

There is famous century old High school in South India named after Dudley. Here is a monument.

Euston Church

Went for brunch and it was really nice, had to wait a while to be seated but it was fine. Grab a coffee and some cake and chill till they come get you. Creative and heartily menu, I want to go back and try other dishes on the menu. The Avocado on toast is a MUST have! Really enjoyed my time here great vibe with friendly staff. (I loved the Pale Ale I had here too)

My favourite place in London. Big, busy but still so cosy and warm. Food is always on point. Creative, tasty and the coffee is so full of flavour. Today my server was best yet. Only downfall are the rude hostess' are when you enter, and leave. I've been here 10 times or more and not once have they cracked even a little smile. Shame really as it's the first and last interaction you have here.

Nursery and Preschools

Mars Montessori Bilingual Nursery

4 Collins Yard, off Islington Green, Angel, London N1 2XU, UK – 020 7099 0452

We moved from Canada to the UK and MARS was a huge help in transitioning my daughter to a new country. Friendly, kind staff who keep you up-to-date on your child's progress. We saw her flourish in French! I am so grateful for everyone at this school for everything they did during her attendance. Highly recommended.

Our son attending Mars for a year, after moving from another setting. Mars impressed us in so many ways, there is a fantastic caring atmosphere and also a child led focus on their development and giving even the littlest ones a wide ranging experience covering a range of topics. We are looking forward to our daughter also starting there in due course. Thank you to everyone at Mars.

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.

There's this boy, George I think, who makes my morning journey to work so enjoyable. He is polite and once reminded me that I had dropped my bus pass and helped me retrieve it. This random act of kindness not only ensured I got back home safely, but the reassurance that this school is a great one. He is in year 9.

City of London School for Girls

City of London School for Girls, St Giles Terrace, Barbican, London EC2Y 8BB, UK – 020 7847 5500

My daughter currently attends but has been very unwell with a long term condition. The way the staff have consistently "gone the extra mile" for her and us shows a level of care that is exceptional. As a parent that is the most important thing and I would happily recommend the school to anyone considering sending their daughter there.

City of London School for Girls is a non-denominational, independent day school, for girls aged 7 to 18, based in the London Square Mile. The School was established by the Corporation of the City of London with money from a bequest from William Ward of Brixton to provide education for girls that “would correspond, as near as may be, to the City of London School”. The school opened in Carmelite Street in 1894 and moved to the present premises in the Barbican in 1969.

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.
