My boyfriend brought me this for my birthday as I’m obsessed with friends (even though he’s not) and I was not disappointed!
Yes the food was expensive so I wouldn’t recommend eating here! It was cute how they had the mocklate stand and the moon dance diner I just wish that it was an actual diner instead of a dinner stand! The duck and goose cocktail bar was very nice though stupidly over priced so definitely sneak your own drinks in if you can!
The tour was fantastic! We had our allotted time and we did queue but that was only before our time we walked in at our correct time given! We were allowed time to walk around the memorabilia and take photos. Then we did a tour of both apartments and we were allowed to walk around and take photos with the items! (Check the freezer in joeys apartment for a little friends in joke)! We took a photo in the famous hallway and Monica’s apartment was also fantastic! Very pleased with the tour!
Bits and bobs
Dotted around the show was things like pheobes taxi and the police car which you can take a photo in! They have the chapel of love and the 1988 prom! We also went to central perk and took photos there which was cute! They had a big tv screen where they were playing the best bits of friends and that was really sweet!
The shop was ok not too over priced but I feel like they could have had more stuff! Brought a cute t shirt and a poster but I feel like they should have had little statues of stuff like the apartment and I would have liked to buy something like that!
Overall I really enjoyed it! My boyfriend was less impressed but he was not a big friends fan! It’s worth going just be carfeul with the food!!
