Everyone's A Critic Online These Days. So How About NickAdvisor? ClinkAdvisor? JointAdvisor?

D.C Editor Adam writes…


Out and about on one of my wanders the other day, travelling on foot between Euston Road and Pentonville Prison researching a Monopoly-themed blog post, I checked my Google Maps to find directions. 

I couldn't help but notice that, when searching Pentonville Prison, Google provides us with not only a map but the option to read (or write) a review of the place…


3.1 stars out of 5. Not bad.


I was intrigued enough to compare the 3.1 stars with other London prisons. The most famous of them all, Wormwood Scrubs, didn't fare so well…




… with a mere 2.7 stars, while Brixton came a creditable second with 3.0.

My favourite detail on the Brixton Google listing is that it was closed…



… which should come as a relief to the law abiding citizens of SW2 and surrounding environs.



Our most recent London Walks Podcasts focuses on London Crime & Punishment…










A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
