Nationwide

146 Uxbridge Rd, White City, London W12 8AT, UK – 0800 554 0296

I've moved from this branch. Although conveniently located on the north side of Shepherds Bush Green it has an annoying double entry door that doesn't always work very efficiently and it is easy to collide with people even though you're not supposed to be able to. Watch out if you're struggling with a wet umbrella. Why do these places hardly ever have a bucket to deposit them in. Can get super busy in here with a queue that never seems to move. You can also wait a long time to speak to an advisor.

Great customer service. Very friendly staff. Barely any queuing

TSB Bank

119 Putney High St, Putney, London SW15 1SU, UK – 020 8780 0430

The staff is always willing to help. I have see Tina few times and she's was very clear and reply to all my questions.

I wonder if tsb as a whole will ever update their interior design. It always looks outdated and basic. The staff are usually friendly but they all have different training on what is and what isn't allowed, so this has caused a few issues in the past.

Dental Surgeries

Bupa Dental Care Chelsea

242-244 Fulham Rd, London SW10 9NA, UK – 020 7376 3330

I found Dr. Brigo to be a god send to deal with a stained tooth. I found the process stress free and the results amazing! Would highly recommend Dr. Brigo for any cosmetic repair work.

Seems to be a reoccurring pattern that Dr. Briggo is absolutely brilliant. I was incredibly embarrassed about the state of my teeth. She calmed my nerves and made me feel so at ease. I do not like the dentist but i felt as though i was in safe hands with this doc. Thank you!

Knightsbridge Dental Care

183 Brompton Rd, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1PA, UK – 020 7581 1000

I have always been a dentists worst nightmare a very nervous patient but Ayee Marie has completely changed all that. Her kindness and caring approach has made a world of difference to my life. Any work that has needed to be done has been pain and anxiety free. I highly recommend KDC.

I have been visiting Dr. Mcgrath for a year now regarding an implant and other work. Of all the dentists i have visited, she has been the one who has made me feel the safest and most comfortable as a patient. Additionally, everyone at KDC is extremely welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend them for any dental work.

The Bush Dental Clinic

278 Uxbridge Rd, White City, London W12 7JA, UK – 020 8743 0585

I have been registered with this surgery for a long time and have been happy with the service I have received. The receptionists are always friendly and helpful. I have been especially impressed with the care of Dr Zaman Mirza who has seen me for the the past year or so. I am a health professional myself and I have been impressed with his thorough approach, clear explanations of treatment plans and clinical abilities. I highly recommend this dental practice.

I recently had treatment with Dr Mirza, what a lovely dentist very patient and attentive. I was so nervous before I went for treatment but Dr Mirza and all his staff took time to reassure me and I felt completely comfortable and would certainly recommend this dentist to all. Very clean and tidy practice and fantastic staff.

The Bush Doctors

147 Shepherd's Bush Green, Hammersmith, London W12 8PP, UK – 020 8749 1882

Fantastic doctors who genuinely care about their patients. The reception team are helpful too. Getting appointments is tricky, but that's the standard in surgeries these days.

Great surgery, amazing staff. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Dr Pamini is always thorough.

London Doctors Clinic Private GP

11.10, 20 Eastbourne Terrace, Paddington, London W2 6LG, UK – 020 8712 9378

I found the service offered very useful. I was seen on time, by a kind and interested doctor. I would definitely recommend the London Doctor's clinic.

I arrived around 10 minutes early to the clinic, signed in and told the receptionist my appointment details. I was told to sit down and wait. I was not called for my appointment until 10 minutes after my dedicated time and when I arrived to meet the doctor, it was assumed that I had arrived late as she did not know the reason why I had been called up late and had to rush my appointment. I did not feel entirely welcome because of this delay and was already relatively stressed out related to why I had booked an appointment to see the GP in the first place. The doctor was professional and did all she could to help me and had apologized for the delay. But I think there is some sort of miscommunication between your reception and your doctors. I don't think I will be returning because of this rather uncomfortable experience.

Dr R Jenkins - the Lilyville Surgery

630 Fulham Rd, Fulham, London SW6 5RS, UK – 020 7736 4344

While it took a very long time for my registration to be processed with this practice, I have to say that I had one of the best GP interactions I've ever had with Dr Carthy this week. She was highly professional, hearing me out while demonstrating balance and a depth of knowledge and care in her advice.

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.

Excellent . I had an operation and everything was perfect . Amazing hospitality, I felt during my stay and the operation that everything is under control .

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

369 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 9NH, UK – 020 3315 8000

Excellent customer service. Staff are professional and very helpful. They do care about the patients. I visited emergency once during pregnancy and once after - was interviewed by the same man - he was very helpful, seeing I have little baby with me asked me to wait in separated area not to expose the baby to all the germs in main waiting room. I also gave birth in this hospital and care I received in birthing centre then labour ward, following Simpson unit and postnatal was just the highest standard. I had complications during the labour but they made me feel safe and decreased my suffering to the very minimum. My husband was treated on several occasions in London's best private clinics but C&W was even better. I was very well looked after. Thank you all at C&W.

Yesterday I cut myself badly enough to warrant a trip to A & E. There was a bit of a wait, as it was VERY busy for the day and time (but I was just happy to have an A & E that was open and well run!). However, all staff were friendly, helpful and professional and the waiting room itself was clean, modern, airy and comfortable. The young Dr that helped me was wonderful! He was cheery, confident and very kind. He patched me up and filled me with confidence that things would be fine. Well done him and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital!

Royal Brompton Hospital

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

I have been admitted twice for surgery at RBH and each time their service is amazing. Both outpatients and inpatient care delivery are of high standards, the staff and consultants were easy to talk to and responsive to my queries and concerns. Now that my heart is fixed, I might take on the joke of my lovely surgeon, Dr. Michael Rigby, to join the London marathon.🤞🏻Thank you so much to all the staff of Royal Brompton Hospital!

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!

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

St Mary Abbots Church

Kensington Church St, Kensington, London W8 4LA, UK – 020 7937 5136

With the tallest spire in southeast England, St Mary Abbots is a nice and well cared for church. It’s almost always open and the architecture is quite nice and interesting both inside and out. It has a small gated area around with a lovely garden just outside. It’s always a pleasure to visit.

What a lovely Church, we were there late afternoon and the sun was shining on the altar making it glow, it was beautiful. A lovely place to cool down and escape from the noise outside. The gardens behind are also lovely. Well worth a visit.

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.

Bella vista solo da fuori mentre cercavamo l'albergo

Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception

114 Mount St, Mayfair, London W1K 3AH, UK – 020 7493 7811

Very nice parish. Good services. Not too small, not dark, good acoustics. Well presented and maintained. Set back from the road if you're approaching from Mount Street.

This is a welcoming church in the centre of London. It is set in a park which provides short pretty walks in good weather. There are several services on a Sunday. We went to the 11.00 am service. It was in Latin reflecting the cosmopolitan nature of the congregation. It was followed by a drink in the hall where we were made very welcome.

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.

This is an excellent resource-for those bringing material without cars too.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around London

Restaurant Gordon Ramsay

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

Absolutely amazing French food adventure. The service was second to none. The waiter,waitress and manager explained the ingredients of every dishes and helped us to have the best experience. They were so friendly, professional and patient to customer. The atmosphere is awesome. The interior decoration is elegant. The price is reasonable. It took us three hours to complete the adventure. Totally worth every penny we paid. Highly recommend.服務非常好,建議點一個classic一個seasonal的菜單然後share,他們會解釋每一個菜的食材和吃法,很有趣。時間很長,很有價值的美食之旅。

BEST dining experience EVER! Awesome food & friendly service! Excellent variety, moderately priced. Fresh home cooked food. Warm and inviting! Thank YOU!

Medlar Restaurant

438 King's Rd, Chelsea, London SW10 0LJ, UK – 020 7349 1900

The first thing that strikes me as impressive is the interior design. It's beautiful and relaxing. We went there for brunch and dinner. The food is absolutely delicious. Very refreshing and beautifully presented. I'd highly recommended this place for special occasions like a small friend gathering or a date.

A quiet unfussy French restauant. You go here for the food, which was just sublime. Not expensive for the quality delivered - will definitely be back.

Outlaw's at The Capital - Michelin Star Restaurant

22-24 Basil St, Knightsbridge, London SW3 1AT, UK – 020 7591 1202

🍽 Amazing experience, although maybe slightly behind the Port Isaac restaurant. The dining room itself is more refined and the food is still of an exceptionally high standard, but I can't help feeling the Port Isaac restaurant still takes 1st place. Either way a lovely experience, and having a menu signed by Nathan Outlaw to take home is a nice little keepsake from the evening.

Perfection on food and service, the room is small so its perfect for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere is elegant and yet relaxed, decoration refined. The wine list is short but its got the right selection. The bill is very high...

Nursery and Preschools

Wandsworth Nursery and Pre-School Academy

Dolphin House, Riverside West,, Smugglers Way, Wandsworth,, London SW18 1DE, UK – 020 8877 1135

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.

I believe this is the best nursery in the area, its a modern, spacious design with a large outside play area. They have a fabulous, very balanced and healthy menu with fresh natural ingredients cooked on site every day by a great chef! The new Trust Us concept from Busy Bees has a great deal to offer to busy parents, and so its well worth booking a visit. They currently have vacancies too, in the baby, toddler and preschool academy rooms. Please do book a visit.

Both my son and my daughter have been very happy there. I am aware of a small number of problems in the 1970's but that is a very long time ago !

The nursery school teachers are great, thank you, my daughter loves her school xx

Melcombe is honestly an amazing school. The staff and pupils are extremley friendly and your child/children will not only obtain a good amount of knowledge, but will also have lots of fun due to the activities the school has to offer. Not to mention, if your child has a problem, the teachers will go out of their way to try and fix it. The school is great at teaching, offering lessons that are both fun and educative, and will leave your child/children with an amazing experience :) - Yekbun Nazli Guven

Sinclair House School

59 Fulham High St, Fulham, London SW6 3JJ, UK – 020 7736 9182

Both my children love this school. I work as a doctor locally and my family have lived in Fulham for over 60 years. We specifically chose Sinclair House above other more established schools for its small class sizes, family feel and contemporary approach to education. The school belongs to the principal who is popular, ever present and very professional. The new premises have ample room and facilities, including a large indoor playground. My children are learning fast, love the staff, and look forward to school every day. I highly recommend Sinclair House school.

My 3 children started attending Sinclair House School after relocating from Belgium and they've been so happy at the school since day one. A lot of effort was put into making them feel at home. They have quickly learned English thanks to the efforts of the staff and language was never an issue. My children have truly grown wings, their individual talents have been recognized and supported and they have benefited from the multiple afternoon clubs. The school is a true window to the world, with many nationalities represented. This brings so much variety to the school and only has benefits to the children.
