The new modern and amazing style NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY here in Hampstead is just fantastic. STAFF as ever are helpful friendly and extremely professional in assisting customer's with anything and everything.

Decent, competent, not over-or-under trained, welcoming and helpful staff. A new, pleasant layout... much more agreeable than formerly.

Local Chambers of Commerce for NW1 6XR. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Islington Town Hall

Upper St, London N1 2UD, UK – 020 7527 2000

Weddings here are lovely! Our registrar was great, the room was beautiful and it's super good value! The only problem is one security guard who was really rude to me and my guests, and the 'interview' beforehand where they write out your certificate takes so long and leaves your guests sitting waiting for ages, even when you are there way in advance! There should definitely be a different process for this. Why my groom couldn't do his before our guests were seated. Super awkward, and i was left in a small waiting room for ages and then upstairs doing the interview while my guests shuffled awkwardly. Lovely ceremony, lovely day, gorgeous room, but this makes no sense. And get rid of that horrible guard.

Love Islington Town Hall! Especially the Council Chamber : a wedding in the round is the best! The registrars are really lovely too and relaxed and allow photographers free rein to capture the joy!

The Old Marylebone Town Hall

Westminster Council House, 97-113 Marylebone Rd, Marylebone, London NW1 5PT, UK – 020 7641 7500

Beautiful place to celebrate a wedding! The rooms are wonderful, such great panelling and ceiling details. The Westminster room is particularly special. It gives a certain gravitas to the very special occasion. The registrars were absolutely perfect presenting the ceremony with a perfect balance of humour and seriousness. We shared in a very special occasion at a great place. We were also reminded of an lovely occasion at this location when we came to register our sons births!

Great weddings here

Camden Town Hall

Judd St, London WC1H 9JE, UK – 020 7974 4444

Efficient, organised and friendly. The staff were cheerful and quickly got my certificate sorted. Security answered my questions politely and were helpful.

The staff are lovely here. You know they're busy but they're always courteous and help you out as much as they can. I had a number of questions that I asked both online and in person and was always happy with the responses I got. The only thing that could use some improving is their website - some things aren't too easy to sort online and I had to email them, but got a call back and when dealing with the same issue in person they got everything sorted for me right there and then.

Dental Surgeries

Marylebone House Dental Practice

152 Marylebone Rd, Paddington, London NW1 5PN, UK – 020 7935 3811

Got an appointment straight away! When I arrived I was met with a friendly smile and my appointment was on time. The dentist Charlie was great! I needed a couple of fillings that he performed there and then. They didn’t hurt a bit and they didn’t hurt my back pocket either. Much more reasonable than other dentists in London. Would happily reccomend them to anyone.

I wish to say a massive thank you to the wonderful team at Marylebone House Dental Practice. After years of neglecting my dental health I developed teeth issues. When I visited the Practice I was in pain and my teeth were in a bad state. I was warmly welcomed and after several appointments my teeth are now pain free, healed and yes, I am keeping them clean. Dr Paras is an excellent intelligent caring dentist. He successfully performed complex procedures on my teeth which had exceptional difficult issues. Thank you so much. I am deeply grateful. Meeting Dr Paras is a blessing. He is a credit to the dentistry profession. Thanks - Kind Regards John Kanyua

RP Advanced Dental and Implant Centre

156a Haverstock Hill, London NW3 2AT, UK – 020 7722 4405

Excellent dentist with professional and caring service -- and modern equipment too!

Just the nicest staff and such wonderful dentists! The facilities are excellent -- beautiful waiting rooms and treatment rooms, all super hygienic with the most up-to-date equipment. I've continued to come here despite moving to another part of town that's further away. Even with it being rather difficult to park in Belsize Park, I find it's worth it. And my children love it too -- which is saying something!

Pickering Dental Surgery

103-104 Upper St, London N1 1QN, UK – 020 7359 6103

Great experience. A long wait (coffee shop across the street made this easier) but overall a top class service! Daniel was informative, professional and fixed my chipped tooth beautifully. Thanks to all the team here!

Absolutely fantastic and helpful! It was my first time and could not be happier. Walked in, filled the forms and was with the doctor within 10 minutes. Well done!

Doctorcall - 24 Hour Private Visiting Doctor

121 Harley St, Marylebone, London W1G 6AX, UK – 0344 257 0345

The doctor was able to come to my flat quite quickly. He was very friendly and helpful and helped me with my condition effectively. I recommend this service very much.

Very good service, polite, prompt and professional. Not the cheapest but I would use again if needed.

London Doctors Clinic

101D, 18 Soho Square, Soho, London W1D 3QL, UK – 020 8712 9378

It's easy to make an appointment online and be seen within a few days. The doctors are professional and helpful. Take the lift to go straight to the first floor rather than waiting at the reception downstairs. However, while appointments with the doctors are reasonably priced, any other treatment is expensive. A very simple urea test cost me £200. The doctor recommended I try a cream that he gave me for £15 while saying he wasn't sure if it was easy to find at any pharmacy (I checked later and it was easy to find for £5).

Easy to find. Easy to make online appointments. Very reasonable prices compared to most. The consultancy fee is not mentioned - so the £155 is actually £210. The men's toilets- for the urine sample - are downstairs through public areas. Results are quick, staff are friendly.

London Doctors Clinic

3.7, 344-354 Grays Inn Road, London WC1X 8BP, UK – 020 8712 9378

Amazing service. Highly skilled professional, caring and empathic, quick appointment, zero wait, affordable rate. Saw Dr. Mookhtadir Ansar at King’s Cross location and am thoroughly impressed. Have never written review for a doctor before but feel compelled after visit with him. Highly recommend him.

It's really easy to book appointments online. All doctors I've seen here have been very professional and helpful. For what you pay it's a great service.

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.

i made a telephone enquiry and left a voice message . A man returned the call the same evening apologising for calling so late. he was so helpful and reassuring on the telephone. excellent telephone manners and great customer service . i went the following sunday to drop of 6 bags of ceramic tiles. Again a gentleman in the premises was very helpful .

Always simple to use and nice helpful staff. Annoying though that too many people get away with putting recyclable goods in the general waste.

Regis Road Recycling Centre

Regis Rd, London NW5 3EW, UK – 020 3620 4026

Brilliant service. They take pretty much everything. The workers there are very helpful.

Came here with a car full of stuff when clearing out our cellar. They seem to be able to take most types of things you might reasonably be able to recycle, and the staff were helpful and not at all officious as you could imagine they might be in a place like this. Overall no complaints from me.

Surplex UK Limited - FREE WEEE I.T. RECYCLING COMMERCIAL

Unit 15426, Box 6945 Rathbone Square, Rathbone Pl, Fitzrovia, London W1A 6US, UK – 01684 252583

I run the IT department for a large law firm (500+ desktops) and we use Surplex as the service is always fast and the drivers friendly and helpful. We like to charity donations this company make and also the data policy is first class. We have used them for about five years now and I don't think we will ever move away to someone else - there is no need. I don't normally write reviews but Surplex asked me too and, to be honest, I was only too happy to help as they've always bent over backwards to accommodate my requirements.

I have used Surplex for our IT / computer recycling from both their London office and their HQ in Malvern. They are professional, speedy and their reporting is first class. The online aspect of retrieving documentation is both fast and secure. We have a particular need for data security which is why we use Surplex, they do not wipe like some other companies we have used they actually shred hard disk drives and in fact any that carries data is treated in the same manner. Mark, the MD, is very knowledgeable and completely down to earth.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. 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.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Camden

Wolkite ethiopian Restaurant

82 Hornsey Rd, London N7 7NN, UK – 020 7700 3055

Excellent food. Wonderful atmosphere. In a quiet corner a stone's throw from the Arsenal Stadium. The staff was very nice and attentive . They even answered all of our questions about the food. They're even working on adding soy items to the menu to accommodate the vegan people who eat there. When you do here I highly suggest you get the honey wine.

This place is a true hidden gem nestled near the Emirates stadium. I absolutely adore injera and here I find the most flavoursome food that goes down a treat with the honey wine that they personally make in store. I recommend repeat visits to explore the whole menu. It feels like you're being welcomed in to a family home for the most wonderfully cooked food. I can't recommend this place enough and everyone is so friendly. Deffo go for a visit - you won't regret it!

The Barbary

16 Neal's Yard, London WC2H 9DP, UK

Amazing food, really friendly staff. It was my first time visiting the restaurant and I was dining solo. The waiter kindly explained the menu to me which is comprised of small plates of which 3-4 is enough per person. The flavour combinations were unexpected and scrumptious. I got the naan bread which was baked on the spot and served with a side of your choice (I got hummus, which was delicious as well). I got roasted cauliflower which was slightly spicy but perfectly balanced with the addition of a yogurt sauce. My main dish was the juiciest chicken I have ever eaten with a rub of spices, served alongside caramelized onions charred cherry tomatoes and more yogurt sauce. Real comfort food. I did not encounter a problem with seating because I went at the restaurant about the time it opened and there was no line. However by the time I was finished there were about 3-4 groups waiting to be seated. So better go there early or expect to wait for a while. Keep up the fantastic job!

Where to even start with this place! Came here as a surprise birthday lunch and it was wonderful from start to finish. Food is great (especially the special octopus salad that was on that day), staff are attentive and helpful but without being cloying and I love the intimate set up. The only annoying part was that reservations are only taken at 12 at the weekend therefore we had to get there rather early for a birthday lunch, but that was a happy sacrifice! I completely understand why this place is considered one of the best restaurants in London.

Daphne

83 Bayham St, Camden Town, London NW1 0AG, UK – 020 7267 7322

Wonderful food, super nice staff. And it's not pricey either. A little gastronomic paradise in busy noisy Camden, tucked away in a Camden backstreet. a fine atmosphere and not trendy (in a good way) - it's just hearty well cooked Greek food that tastes lovely. street, its food for the soul

One of my favourite restaurants in London! Amazing food and very lovely staff. Next time I'm in London, my first visit will be to Daphne to eat their amazing Kleftiko again.

Nursery and Preschools

Bright Horizons St John's Wood Day Nursery and Preschool

70 Marlborough Hill, London NW8 0NH, UK – 020 3780 3027

Pretty good nursery despite its recent downgrade by Ofsted. There is a new manager there now and it has improved dramatically. The carers genuinely care about the kids and my two bounce out daily polite and relaxed. They aren't helicopter-parenting either, thankfully. Bit pricy but it is St Johns Wood so what do you expect?

Bright Horizons Mount Carmel Day Nursery and Preschool

18 Eden Grove, Off Holloway Road,, London N7 8EQ, UK – 020 3780 3015

my son went here for 8 months I recommend Kayley she really helped me settle my son in and looked after him well. They were very flexible and my son loved it. A very good nursery (and I looked at many and didn't like whether private or state) I didn't want him to leave a very good independent nursery.

Phileas Fox Nursery School

Cavendish School

31 Inverness St, Camden Town, London NW1 7HB, UK – 020 7485 1958

A unique and exceptional school with a dedicated and experienced staff and wonderful, supportive, friendly families. The Cavendish is non selective and yet secures outstanding results for its girls within a framework of incredible pastoral care and without the pressure of 'hot house' schools. It places huge emphasis on kindness, tolerance and courtesy. Its families are dedicated to the school and are actively involved. Unusually, it has specialist teachers for science, music, languages, PE and art. Delicious, home made meals are cooked every day and an exciting array of extra curricular activities are available. The school itself is beautifully maintained and provides a happy, high quality learning environment. My best advice would be to come and see the school in action and judge for yourself. A little gem.

We have two daughters at the Cavendish, one in year 3 and one in year 6 (who has just left). Our experience of the school has been incredibly positive; both children always look forward to going to school and have never once expressed any reluctance during the last 8 years to leave the house in the morning. We chose the school because it was non selective and claimed to offer a strong a pastoral ethos with good academic results. Our experience is that it has delivered both in spades! What particularly impresses me about the school is the quality of the teaching and how they continually adapt it to the needs of the individual child. My two daughters are very different in how they learn and what their natural strengths are; I cannot praise the school enough for how they have personalised their approach to them and helped both of them to achieve their academic potential. We also wanted a school that had a strong science and maths curriculum and I have never failed to be impressed by the quality and sophistication of the maths and science they are doing. The homework policy feels well balanced and pitched just right for their age. My elder daughter, on leaving the school, has developed a good work ethic when it comes to homework which I feel has set her up perfectly for secondary school. The school is very friendly; we have built good relationships with parents not just from our daughters’ classes but from across other years groups as well. Unlike many other schools the meals are cooked and prepared in the school kitchen and are healthy, varied, and nutritious. Under the leadership of the previous head the school achieved and outstanding inspectors’ reports (excellent in all areas) which particularly commended the quality of the teaching and which we felt was well deserved. Under the new head the school has not rested on its laurels and has been striving to improve its academic performance still further; certainly the current year 6 have achieved an impressive range of offers from the top north London secondary schools. This is a lovely school, I could not think of a better place to send my daughters.
