City of London apartment description

Our Southbank garden apartment, in the new heart of London, is 100 yards from The Thames behind The OXO Tower between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.
Our apartment is on the first and second floors of a small, modern block of 16 apartments. The first floor comprises of a living room with sofa bed (suitable for a child or teenager) and full kitchen. There are patio doors onto a beautiful, planted deck with a table and chairs for al fresco dining. There is also a double bedroom and shower room on this floor. On the second floor is an en suite master bedroom overlooking the garden deck. There is an elevator.
We are very close to the cultural heart of London including The National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and The London Eye. There are lots of places nearby to eat and drink to cover all tastes and budgets.


Location: We are ten minutes from two tube stops (Waterloo and Blackfriars), which have 5 lines between them as well as British Rail services. For the most picturesque walk along The River, we use Embankment Station, which takes 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many photos you take!




Eating: We have plenty of places nearby to eat including two very good restaurants in The OXO Tower, which have great views. There are lots of less expensive restaurants within a short distance, many overlooking The River, and a couple of pubs on The River that serve food and drink throughout the day.It truly is the best location in London!

                      Our Southbank garden apartment, in the new heart of London, is 100 yards from The Thames behind The OXO Tower between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.

                      We are very close to the cultural heart of London including The National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, and Tate Modern. They are all within a five to ten minutes walk along the river bank . A little further and you would reach The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. If you cross Waterloo Bridge, Covent Garden is two minutes away.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: David and Julia have always loved the culture of London's South Bank and when the opportunity arose to purchase an apartment they couldn't believe their luck. They have a six years old son, Sebastian. Julia is a professional, classical singer having trained at The Royal College of Music. Since the birth of Sebastian she has been a full time Mum fitting in the occasional concert. David is a full time Dad and says it's the best thing he has ever done!

                      Why the Owner Chose City of London:
                      The South Bank is the vibrant cultural centre of London. Our apartment is near The Tate Modern, The World's most visited art gallery and a host of other attractions including The Globe Theatre, St Pauls, The National Theatre,National Film Theatre, Hayward Gallery, The Royal festival Hall, London Eye etc etc. We are within walking distance of theatreland and Covent Garden and there are lots and lots of places to eat and drink to suit all tastes and budgets. Public transport is fabulous particularly the RV! bus which stops outside our apartment block and runs, mainly along The River from Tower Hill to Covent Garden via Waterloo. It is a very frequent service. Taxis are abundant.
