Southwark apartment description

This self-catering apartment is just one minute from some of the best views of London, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. Being within 3 minutes walk of London Bridge station, it is easy to get to anywhere located near a Jubilee or Northern Line stop. It is also a good place to start walking along the South Bank or across the bridge to the City.

The location is well connected in all directions. You are only 5 minutes from Trafalgar Square via train, less than 8 minutes from Green Park/West End by tube, 10 minutes from Canary Wharf in the east, 10 minutes from Greenwich in the south/east by train, and only 4 stops north to Holborn for Covent Garden.

Across the street is the riverside walkway with the best views of London towards Tower Bridge and the City of London - great at night! You can walk on the riverside upriver passing the Borough Food Market, Southwark Cathedral, Vinopolis, Shakespeare Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, Millennium Bridge (which crosses the river to St Pauls Cathedral). After the Tate Modern, you can then walk on via Blackfriars Bridge past the Oxo Tower to the South Bank Arts Centre and the London Eye - the full walk is very popular and has great views of London all the way.

This modern apartment in a quality residential development is 850 square feet, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one is shower/toilet, the other with full bath/shower/toilet). This very convenient apartment provides a comfortable base for any visit to London.

PLEASE NOTE: This apartment is one of two we have in London Bridge, the other being off Borough High Street, which is the other side of London Bridge station (listed on HomeAway: http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p162500). We may not guarantee which apartment your booking will be allocated to but we can normally allocate it to your preferred apartment. Please discuss your preference with us.

PPS The apartment is very quiet. There is triple glazing to the front (livingrom) and double glazing to the back (bedrooms). The back overlooks an enclosed courtyard. The apartment is on the first floor above ground. Looking at a map will only give a 2 dimensional view of the location and in fact the apartment is very quiet.

PPS There is an air conditioning unit but the most effective way to avoid the few days of really hot weather we get in London is to lower the blinds during the day. There are black out blinds in the livingroom, lowering these still gives enough light during the day but keeps the apartment just comfortably warm during any hot days.
