Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Jen gave an excellent tour of Caledonian Park’s clock tower, really delving into the history of the surrounding space and the mechanics of the clock. Would highly recommend!

A tour of the church I was christened in, my parents married in and the church my primary school was affiliated to. Was already more than familiar with the church but learned so much more and saw parts we never had access to including the crypts, the bells, behind the clock faces and the views from the steeple. Jonathan and Stephen were informative, knowledgeable and just good company throughout.

Really enjoyed the tour of the Caledonian clock tower. The Guide Jan was very informative and interesting. We climbed to the top. Saw the workings of the clock and learnt loads of history of the area.

We toured St Mary’s Church in Islington, and had a wonderful time. The guide (Stephen) was so knowledgeable, funny and so engaging. We learnt about the history of the church going back to Norman times, and for the best but a trip up to the bell tower and to the top of the steeple. 17 storeys (ish) up and you can see for miles.

The guided tour of St Mary's, Upper Street, Islington with Jonathan Wober and Rowan Williams was fascinating and the view from the top of the tower was very special indeed.

Great tour of St Mary's Islington - a very beautiful church with lots of history. The best bit though was the opportunity to climb up the tower for a fantastic view. Highly recommended. The tour was led by George Nicolaou who was a fount of knowledge and Stephen who pointed out the landmarks from the top of the tower.

Tour guides were highly professional, knowledgable, approachable & conscious of health & safety.

I enjoyed my trip the Caledonian Park Clock Tower, it was interesting to see the inside of it and what makes it "tick".

I learned a lot about the history of it and it's locality & the views at the top were stunning.

Str. Mary's Church, Upper Street, Islington.

A very interesting 90 minutes. Guide friendly, well-prepared, informative and easy to listen to. Getting to the top of the eighteenth century Church tower the highlight I guess.
