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.

    We visited at about 9:45am on a Sunday morning. Technically, it doesn't open until 10am, but plenty of vendors were already selling at that point. Queues were minimal too. We had strawberries covered in chocolate from Turnip (£8.50), alfajores from Portena (£1.50 each), and doughnuts from Bread Ahead. All really good food, and there were so many other options on offer, but it was a bit early for ice-creamd or Indian food! We spent less than an hour there and it was starting to get really busy by the time we left. If visiting with kids, early is definitely the way to go!

    A real destination, so well used after the flower, fruit & veg market was moved to bigger more modern premises. Love how the whole are has a buzz, and has taken the surrounds of the old market into a great location. Full of buskers, craft stalls and food vendors.

    Love the store. Always visit like the other million when in London. The place has been refurbished since the takeover and still looks amazing. To see the food hall is something else, no other place in the world beats Harrods.

    Stunning display of gigantic pictures filling the huge rooms with atmospheric music. Lots to see. Spent quite a long time in each room watching the paintings change which was fascinating. Our only bugbear was a couple of young mothers with prams standing in the midst of a couple of the rooms, chatting loudly about their babies and general conversations, completely oblivious to their surroundings or anyone else's enjoyment. They should've stayed in the cafe, or the park across the road! We moved on, but it did rather spoil our complete experience.... Well stocked shop - didn't use the cafe, but it looked OK.

    Not been for years so was good to go back. However, do not expect everything to be open/set up at the advertised open time - we went early to avoid the crowds. Therefore we only stayed as long as it took to walk around.

    This place is awesome. I recommend for everyone to go. Such a colorful and rich experience with food, shopping and all of it. Even though there’s so much to do in London, I highly recommend you coming here for an afternoon. It’s really a blast…then you hit brick lane, check out some street art and you’ve got the best day ever!!

    There is no lovelier gallery in London.

    It is intimate, accessible, romantic, rich in its displays, discreet, serene and its artworks are beautiful beyond words.

    It is too, that its range of artworks is wide but less expansive than the National Gallery or the Tate. That helps matters. It makes it easier to focus.

    And what wonderful genius is on display. There is one corner of the Gallery where I could simply stand for hours. Inside one door is a Modigliani nude from 1916, to it's right is Manet's huge Bar at the Folies Bergere and over the shoulder to the right on the wall opposite is the exquisite Van Gogh, La Crau with Peach Trees in Blossom.

    If you could determine your own eternity, this would surely be one option. I am so grateful for this place.

    Laura Lees Morgan Jewellery was the highlight of our trip to Greenwich market last weekend.
    Been looking for a dainty silver bracelets and whilst other stores caught my eye, Laura's welded bracelet beat the lot. Great customer interaction with my friends and I. We'll definitely be back earlier in the day to get the pick of jewel crop! Can't wait to add to my welded jewellery collection.

    Massive shopping centre with a great variety of shops and restaurants. However, poor signage regarding the tube centres so we ended up walking back to our hotel in Hammersmith!

    A very cool vibrant international street food market with some nice design shops, organic supermarket and a florist tucked away for good measure. A go to location when we're hungover and need food, a great option to drag friends to if nobody can decide on what to eat. Just don't expect to find seating if it's peak time
