Property description

In the ‘heart’ of Covent Garden and London’s main theatre and entertainment district, Shelton Street is only 2 minutes walk from Covent Garden market with its famous Victorian architecture and vibrant mix of craft stalls, boutique shops and street entertainment and of course the Royal Opera House. For Jazz fans Ronnie Scott’s Club and the Spice of Life pub are within strolling distance. As Artists ourselves we can direct you to all the latest live music events (including our own!).

Covent Garden Underground Station (Piccadilly line direct from/to Heathrow Airport) is within a short walk from the apartment (approx. 3 minutes). There are so many restaurants (Carluccio’s, The Ivy to name two), famous theatres and bars close by that we can’t name them all here! In fact, there is so much to see on-foot, within your immediate vicinity, you won’t need to use the Underground at all if you choose not to!

If you do want to travel further afield there are a number of Underground stations close by, taking you to for example, London’s Westminster premier shopping streets, Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and Kensington, or to visit St. James Park and Buckingham Palace. Also within easy walking distance is Piccadilly Circus, the River Thames and its South Bank attractions, Trafalgar Square and 10 Downing Street. For a day trip further afield, Charing Cross Mainline Station, is within easy walking distance and will take you to the South coast of England in under 2 hours.

The apartment itself is within a small development of recently built apartments constructed within a small, traditional Victorian warehouse building, which retains a wealth of traditional, architectural character and benefits from modern easy-to-clean facilities such as wide oak flooring and the latest kitchen and bathroom designs. Appliances include: washer/drier; microwave; hob; oven and fridge-freezer. Being located in a quiet street behind Long Acre, (one of the main shopping streets in Covent Garden), means you can keep popping back home to drop off your shopping, or before going out to the theatre in the evening, to put your feet-up and have a cup of tea!

The apartment interior and furnishings are contemporary in design and furnishings, with multi-channel television, DVD/video player and Hi Fi available for your entertainment (with a selection of CDs, DVDs and videos). Sleeping arrangements (for up to six adults) include two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and one a zip & link super king size bed, which can be easily transformed into twin beds (ideal for children). There is further accommodation on a double sofa-bed in the living room. All linen is included. Tesco Metro and Marks and Spencer are both within 2 minutes walk for grocery supplies. China crockery cooking utensils, bed linen and towels are all provided.

If you are looking for the perfect mixture of a Westminster location and facilities, our apartment is the ideal. We know you won’t be disappointed!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Hello, I look forward to welcoming you to our Central London apartment. I have been an 'Owner' with VRBO since 2007 and have really enjoyed looking after our guests with my colleague and personal friend Martin Kubisa. I am a huge Jazz music fan so can advise on all the best music and dancing venues what ever your taste in music just ask!

Why the Owner Chose Westminster:
When I first viewed this apartment I knew it would be ideal for holidays because it is in such a unique position being in the heart of Covent Garden where newly refurbished properties are rare.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment has all the features of a traditional London warehouse but with all the modern amenities of a contemporary home.
