    Great to see the library. First visit, very busy with students.

    Lots of coffee places and eating places inside. Toilet facilities all over the place too.

    You need to join if you want to go into a reading room so take I’d.

    Fascinating building.

    After sending an e-mail regarding our visit later this year (christmas shopping) they returned my email with very helpful advise regarding our visit to London. Thank you Maria Garcia for your useful help.

    We visited on the 1st November 2021 at approx 10 am, it was nice and quiet, very relaxing, not the biggest lounge I have ever used quite small really.
    There was a good selection of breakfast items, hot and cold, the fruit pots were lovely, croissants were fresh but so tiny. The bread rolls are disappointing though they are so small only about 3 inches each, a slightly bigger roll and more bread selection would be nice.

    Plenty of tea, coffee and soft drinks available to help yourself too. Only one white wine or one red wine available and one selection of beer, prosecco you need to pay for, whereas it used to be free.

    At 11.45 am they started bringing out the lunch items so you could help yourself to this as well, unfortunately I was full as I really fancied the apricot crumble.

    Definitely one of the better lounge experiences and we would use again.

    This year after 2 years of no shows I attended again excel London with a trade show.

    Our team always enjoys shows at EXCEL since there are usually not long lines at the entrance and there is good infrastructure in the area in London.

    Good restaurants and hotels the area. I recommend Sunborn Hotel if you are looking for a higher class 4* hotel near the venue.

    The Ideal Home Show Christmas was good, but as we were in covid there were no covid passport checks or negative test checks seeing as the new Covid variant was around and with over 50,000 visitors who shopped til' they dropped I think this dampened the event.

    Also for a big event like this there was no security bag checks……. A little surprised?

    The show was very diverse as the was theatre talks on how to create the ultimate Christmas, festive tipples, stalls with xmas presents and stalls with just gifts - there truly was something for everyone at the Ideal Home Show Christmas 2021.

    Dear admins of the Plaza Premium lounge! Your lounge is great and very comfortable, but please, consider paying more attention towards your dishes. The glassware seems filthy and very worn out. So many scratches and stains on glassware that I am afraid to even touch them. Please either consider changing your dishes or the washing machines. I understand we are in the middle of the crisis and that it may not be possible, but please, at least provide bottled water so that customers do not use this horrible glassware. In addition, I cannot say your staff were very helpful in resolving this issue when I raised it. It is unacceptable given the current epidemiological condition. Not attaching photos, because I do not want to make your staff upset, who are doing very hard work, but feel free to go into your lounge and see for yourselves please.

    Having visited the area for dinner we thought we’d take a scenic route back to the train station. Some of the artwork was not to our taste, but I’m sure some people must appreciate it! The atmosphere was wonderful, especially coming from a small town where everybody is at home by 6pm!

    Located near gate 6 of terminal 4.
    We have passes for access to lounges but when I noticed it was £35, I was shocked as this isn't worth £35 for upto 3 hours. We have been in lots of lounges as this is quiet basic. Food counter wasn't too bad but very limited on drinks. Wine white or red and lager only once choice, as for beer then no chance.
    Hope dont need to travel from Terminal 4 again for a while.
    Looks to be lots of places to eat and drink in the terminal that would be cheaper and more choice.

    The visa application process is rather daunting at the outset. One could imagine that the UK and Russia were at loggerheads However, that been said, the staff at the Tourist Office did what was asked, efficiently and politely and I now have my visa. I still can't go but will get there one day, after all ,I've only been waiting 40 years.

    I have been here for exhibitions before but years ago. The exhibition this time was about Shackleton's I'll fated expedition to the Antarctic. The story is amazing and the photos are outstanding and beautiful. I can recommend this exhibition to anyone.

    I enjoy using the lounge upon my arrival although it has recently changed its prices. I was suprised to find that there is now an additional cost for the shower. Otherwise, a calm and pleasant place to relax after a long flight

    The BDC is a good venue located in Islington so good train and tube access if coming from outside London

    Not huge but big enough so creates a more intimate feel and varied levels in the hall which breaks up the space nicely

    Jacks cafe and nearby seating is an excellent anchor point to meet people, especially when your legs are weary

    Only downside? The cloakroom check in is awful. They have digitised a process that I expect used to take seconds and using Chexology (?) software made it slow with massive queues. Really slow. Phone number, picture, card payment, and then there are those who insist on a receipt for a pound so email needed for that. As I was at a technology conference this stuck out for me as a classic poor example

    Good venue 👍

    It’s always a positive for an area or city when there is a good visitor center close to major transport links. This is useful and with helpful staff!

    Where else but Greenwich is what Is essentially a tourist information centre set in a Georgian building with palladian columns. In front a statue of Sir Walter Raleigh and a cannon. Inside a bookshop, an information and ticket desk, but also a permanent exhibition about the architecture of Greenwich with models of parts of buildings that were actually built as well as a dome for the Royal Naval College which was not. Access to the adjoining g bar and restaurant is currently blocked but both can be accessed through the grounds instead.

    I first learned of this library and exhibitions when starting a new job and seeing posters in a nearby train station. Lock down being on-and-off and my work hours having to be quite fluid, it has taken me around a year to actually make the short walk here. I managed to secure a slot in the middle of the day for the 'Death Marches - Evidence and Memory' exhibition. I am so glad I managed to work my day around this event. The exhibition was small but still informative. Funds are still neded to help with ongoing research into srories that should never have been (or ever should be) forgotten. There is still a lot we don't know about these people, their lives and/or deaths, but the work continues. A wonderful gem of a place overlooking Russell Square. Working over at the nearby hospital, I am conscious of the precautions in place with respect to invection control, and the staff here cannot be faulted! Displays and the visiting public very well set out, no real possibility of tripping over each other here. I will certainly be back - maybe for longer once Corronavirus restrictions are no longer deemed nescessary.
