Banks

NatWest Bank

183b King's Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 5EB, UK – 0845 788 8444

First class banking from one of the best NatWests in London. Their Customer Service Team is excellent and you always get a personal service which is so sadly lacking in some banks these days.

Brilliant and friendly service, considering changing my personal account to them.

Lloyds Bank

Kings Mall, 21 King St, Hammersmith, London W6 0QF, UK – 0345 740 4404

Walked in and been nicely welcomed and very well assisted. Shaun definitely went the extra mile to help me. Great service!

Branch is full of helpful staff. I had a RV booked in the same week, and it took the diligent clerk 35mn to open my new bank account - while I had been literally begging over and over again at terrible HSBC Fulham Broadway branch for over 2 months. Problem solved = happy and relieved customer!

Local town hall, can get very busy within and in the summer poorly ventilated.

Town Hall

Hornton St, Kensington, London W8 7NX, UK – 020 7361 3000

Good place but the council lacks efficiency

Pretty good as a conference venue, have been here for Astrofest every year for years.

Chelsea Old Town Hall

Chelsea Old Town Hall, King's Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 5EE, UK – 020 7361 2220

Exceptional service, facilities and Registrars. Couldn't of asked for anything more for our special day. Lisa & Patricia made it what it was and are brilliant at what they do!

Dental Surgeries

92 Dental

5 Glenthorne Mews, 115a Glenthorne Rd., Hammersmith, London W6 0LJ, UK – 020 8748 1381

Very friendly and professional team. I have been attending the practice for many years and can testify to the excellent care that they provide. Highly recommended!

Three generations of my family have been seeing Ron for 27 years of faultless dental care. He and his team have always worked to the highest of standards with care, compassion and consideration. I couldn’t recommend Ron and the practice more highly.

The Care Dental Practice

118-120 Hammersmith Rd, Hammersmith, London W6 7JP, UK – 020 8846 8534

I had a great experience at this dental practice. All the staff are lovely and welcoming and the treatment was very relaxing. I was quoted £2500 for a dental implant by my local dentist as she said she could not save my tooth. The Care Dental Practice could not only save the tooth, but have saved me over £1000! I will return.

Care Dental is my trusted Dentist since 2003. I now go and take my kids too. Even when I go abroad I have to take my kids back to the dentists there as they are amazing in dealing with kids, they respect them and explain what will happen and even give advice ‘child friendly ones’ that make my kids independent in caring for their teeth. My husband doesn’t like going to dentists and have phobia and that too was catered for. I highly recommend them.

Kensington House Dental Practice

127A Kensington High St, Kensington, London W8 5SF, UK – 020 7938 3384

I had not been to the dentist for a number of years due to being a very nervous patient. But a few years ago i went to this practice as i work close by and the treatment i got was superb and at NHS rates, the dentist was very understanding, caring and informative. My nervousness had decreased and i went this morning and had extensive treatment, something i would never of had a few years back, but everything was fine. if you are a nervous patient i would strongly recommend this place

excellent service! kind gentle and polite 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.

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.

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.

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.

Nightingale Hospital

they do the best they can. Some of these reviewers should try a stint in an nhs ward and maybe they won't be so quick to complain

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!

Kensington Park Medical Centre

75 Russell Rd, Kensington, London W14 8HW, UK – 020 7371 6060

I have never had a problem to get an appointment in this medical centre. I find receptionists very polite and understanding. Depends on the doctor but sometimes my appointments a little rushed, but no complains there - after all it’s a free medical healthcare.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Hyde Park Chapel – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Awesome place very nice and helpful people I learned a lot about the Mormon faith and have been to a few church services to its open to the public and you can learn a lot about early Church history and even get a free Bible well worth a visit.

This chapel is just lovely, and everyone is so kind and welcoming to visitors. The visitors center is interactive and engaging, and the sunday services are even more phenomenal! I can't wait to come back again soon!

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

St Thomas of Canterbury

60 Rylston Rd, Fulham, London SW6 7HW, UK – 020 7385 4040

Wonderful parish. Attended Mass on holiday here and it was great!

We have lived nearby for nearly 2 years now and will be moving away from St Thomas in the next few months. What will we do? We intend to commute via bus because this is simply the best Church for us. Father Oscar and Father Dennis are insightful, friendly and offer intelligent sermons, prayers and stories. The congregation vary from babies to elderly and each and every person is very warm and inviting. Aesthetically the space is beautiful, always garnered with beautiful flower arrangements. To experience mass here is always pleasure, I would encourage anyone and everyone to come.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around West Kensington

Launceston Place

1A Launceston Pl, Kensington, London W8 5RL, UK – 020 7937 6912

This restaurant has a very welcoming feel to it. Love the interior and all the staffs are so friendly. Although it’s a fine dinning restaurant, it doesn’t have the snobbish vibe like many other places. We had the tasting menu and we enjoyed every single dish on the menu. Their breads and toasts are amazingly delicious. When we’re so full after the main, they served us a great dessert so the whole dinner ended at high. When I made booking, I let them know that it’s for a birthday celebration and they seated us at a very nice table. At the end, they even brought in a small piece of cake to say happy birthday. All in all, we really like this restaurant and we will definitely be coming back for more!

Really great place now been to twice. Really great food, I suspect this place will have some stars very shortly. Tried tasting menu both times; highlights are just about every dish but you will remember the pork dish, the celeriac and the dessert. Amazing !

Gaucho

89 Sloane Ave, Chelsea, London SW3 3DX, UK – 020 7584 9901

Definitely one of the top 3 best steak meals I've had in London, and probably the top 1 most full I've ever felt in my life. I have no idea how they get their steaks so bug and tasty, especially considering the fair price. All I know is that once I had the first bite I needed to finish it, I was a fool to start with the sides... Anyway, finish it I did, and to my surprise, so did the friend I was with. It would have been blasphemy if we didn't. Bravo Gaucho, delicious and generous.

Warm welcome, jackets taken & walked to our seats. The decor is certainly that of a steak house (you will see if you go) & the general feel of the place was relaxing. Waiter was friendly & helpful. However, the steak was lacking. It was cooked exactly to my order (medium rare) but the texture/quality of the steak was chewy. It was certainly not a premium quality cut & that left me disappointed.

Memories of India Kensington

18 Gloucester Rd, Kensington, London SW7 4RB, UK – 020 7581 3734

Very caring environment, including encouraging them to eat all their lunch... We are very pleased with the Ashburnham Nursery. Our SON has improved socially and academically already. He can recognise letters and numbers in such a short space of time. All the teachers are brilliant!”

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!

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.
