Building Societies

The Chelsea Building Co

168 Earls Ct Rd, Kensington, London SW5 9QQ, UK – 020 7259 2247

Have used this company several times and can highly recommend. David and his team were a delight to have around! Mess was kept to a minimum, turned up on time and didn’t land me with extra hidden costs. They even didn’t seem to mind too much when I changed my mind numerous times on things and were very accommodating. Would definitely use them again.

I used Chelsea Building because they were competitive and professional pitching for the business and I was not disapointed.They completed painting the outside of the house and remedial building work on time and to a very high specification.Their workfroce were a pleasure to have on site and they always left the site clean.I would definitely ask them to pitch again for any further building and/or decorating work that I have going forward

Dental Surgeries

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.

Paddington Dental Practice

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

Don't really leave reviews but i just had to this time because credit is due when deserved and the service from Dr Gursharon Dhariwal was 1st class. I'm not a fan of any medical professions because they scare the life out of me but she made me feel so at ease and calm I was so thankful. Thank you again Doc!

I can’t recommend this practice enough. Treatment is world class and staff are very helpful and kind. I no longer dread the dentist!

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.

Same Day Doctor central London

52 Queen Anne St, Marylebone, London W1G 8HL, UK – 020 7631 0090

I find Samedaydoctor to be extremely helpful, flexible, courteous, and of course, professional. Highly recommended to busy people who may have hectic days and need to see a doctor at a time which suits them.

Friendly and reliable staff. Awesome i pop up for some test on a sunday get the results in the same day...

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.

Royal Brompton Hospital

Sydney St, Chelsea, London SW3 6NP, UK – 020 7352 8121

My 3 years old son had sleeping study at this hospital on Monday 12/02/2018. It was my first visit. We received an excellent care by doctors and nurses. Nurse's particaly were amazing and they have done everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you so much for your amazing work. Well done!

I have experienced RBH since 1994 first with my wife and then as a patient. The medical care is outstanding in every way, the staff caring and professional and the ambience is friendly and reassuring. Sir Reginald Wilson Ward is the best place in the world to be if you are ill. Please fight to keep this wonderful institution alive for the future, it is irreplaceable,

St. Thomas' Hospital

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

Generally a good hospital. Midwives are usually friendly and helpful. The past few visits, I haven't had long to wait at all. I did have one bad experience which is when my child was born. We were in hospital for over a week and decided to self discharge as all checks on my child were good, my mother's instinct told me that she was perfectly fine and I felt I was losing my mind in there. One of the nurses tried to make me feel guilty and emotionally blackmailed me saying that if I leave, I'm going to have to come back because my child will get sick, "watch". Just to be clear, there was absolutely nothing wrong with my child, they kept us in to do tests for an infection as my waters had been broken for 2 days prior to giving birth - the tests were all negative. Then when we were waiting hours for our discharge papers, the nurse decided to very obviously flirt with my partner. I couldn't believe what was happening right in front of my eyes; even he seemed a bit surprised. I was so angry.

It’s very rare that you come across a hospital like St Thomas’. I’m thankfully under the pain clinic here and the team here are far superior to any other hospital in London. I’m so thankful to these guy. They really listen when you talk and their treatment programs for Fybromyalgia and ME are very advanced. Outstanding service. A lot of hospitals could learn a lot from this place.

St Michael's Church

Chester Square, Belgravia, London SW1W 9HH, UK – 020 7730 8889

I have never been to this church but i read in Sir Christopher lee's (actor) autobiography book in 1977 that he got married here on March 17th 1961.One day i will visit this church.

A lovely building, and very active Church of England congregation !

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. *****

St. Jude's Church

24 Collingham Rd, Kensington, London SW5 0LX, UK – 020 7052 0573

very different from the catholic church which is what i expected (this church came up dueing a search doe catholic churches) they worship mostly by singing. this past sunday they'd invited a speaker who read from exodus and spoke about it. then they sang some more bwdoee dismissing us.

Western Riverside Waste Authority Recycling Facility

Smugglers Way, London SW18 1JS, UK – 020 8871 2788

Pretty quick despite the queue. No charge (but no vans allowed). Drive to the far end to park, the queue comes from everyone taking the first available space and blocking everyone behind them.

Honestly didn't think I'd ever be so impressed by a visit to the tip. I went on a Sunday morning (around 11am) and it was so incredibly efficient. The organisation and information given to you as you drive in means that you drive straight up to the relavent spot, empty your car, then drive off. I was in and out within 10 minutes.

Surplex UK Limited - FREE WEEE I.T. RECYCLING COMMERCIAL

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.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

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

Côte Bistro - Kensington

47 Kensington Ct, Kensington, London W8 5DA, UK – 020 7938 4147

Visited for my husband's 30th birthday to have a delicious breakfast to start off our busy day. All opted for the breakfast meal deal which is great value. Eggs were cooked perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was fantastic. Will definitely keep Côte in mind next time we are near one and fancy a nicer breakfast than normal!

We prebooked lunch on a very busy Saturday. The staff coped very well with plenty of smiles and assistance with menu choices. We shared a bottle of house white wine, it was very good. The lunch time special of half roast chicken with sliced potatoes and green beans was very tasty. The lemon sorbet was a light and refreshing dessert. Good value for money and would recommend. Only negative would be very tight on space.

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

My son has recently started the nursery in the toddler room, really friendly environment very resourceful and captivating. The room is very inviting including staff. Management seem very efficient and caring as myself and my wife have been extremely anxious about leaving our child with his specific needs. The new manager Evelyn Herrera is extremely approachable and I already feel at ease with her around. My wife explains she was also very reassured by her with our child's specific needs. I appreciate all there hard work especially in the last few weeks and continue to support as they continue to flourish.

Our daughter has been going to busy bees wandsworth since she turned 1 and she is very happy there. The staff are all very friendly ,caring and absolutely great with the kids. The nursery has recently been refurbished inside and outside and looks fantastic, with nice big playrooms, brand new toys and a nice big outside space. Thanks for the amazing job you do, our daughter has really gained so much from being at your nursery, she surprises us almost on a daily basis with something new she learned. Happy Toddler = Happy Mommy & Daddy. X

Minors Nursery School

10 Pembridge Square, London W2 4ED, UK – 020 7727 7253

The girl I look after has attended Minors Nursery School since September 2017 and she loves it. Everyday she is happy to go to school and I can see how comfortable she is with the Minors team. The teachers are very reliable, caring and professional. Often she comes home with her little arts and craft, which are nice and creative. The atmosphere with other parents and nannies is very friendly, too. Would definitely recommend this nursery school, it is fabulous.

A wonderful and caring nursery, my daughter loves it here. The teachers are very kind and always smiling : )

All round good stimulating education with great activities.

As an American transplant I was so impressed by the vibe of this school: well-lit, lots of color and happy conversations among the students and kind tones from the teachers. I had the chance to meet both the head teacher and the deputy head, and it is clear that they have their child-focused priorities straight and that their leadership is a fundamental reason why this school is doing magnificent work.

International Community School

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.

Bousfield Primary School

S Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London SW5 0DJ, UK – 020 7373 6544

This is an excellent school, it provides so many people with help and learning opportunities. I loved my teachers Mr Fox and Mrs Pears for the kind natured teaching skills . I struggled after leaving this school as other schools can't compare or care for my learning. Needs. Barn dances in the hall was one of my favourite times there. Thanks.

This is an amazing school, full of light, green spaces and playgrounds, set in a lovely neighbour. I have 2 kids there and I am so impressed by the way they are tough, and the children are so happy to go to school. Staff is knowledgeable, respectful and kind, the head teacher is clearly doing a great job!
