Westminster apartment description

A lovely flat located in the Heart Of Central London. The flat is on a very quiet and charming street(no traffic at all)within a two minute walk from the British Museum.Its location is fantastic! The flat will sleep 4 in comfort.There are excellent transport links nearby ,but as one is so close to the major sightseeing attractions,public transport shouldn't be necessary. There's wide choice of coffee shops,tea rooms, restaurants all within minutes of the flat.The flat is well looked after and our guests should love their stay in Bloomsbury. For those wishing to see theatre productions ,Covent Garden is a 7 minute walk away. There's plenty of shopping on nearby Oxford St.The flat should suit those coming to London to see the sights or for those needing a relaxing break. The flat is in a beautiful period Victorian building. It's situated on a stunning street, that has a wonderful historic feel to it all year round.


Our charming flat will be the perfect home from home in Central London.The area of Bloomsbury is stunning. Our guests will be able to wander the historic nearby Garden Sqaures and even bring a picnic for those long summer nights. The kitchen is fully equipped to allow dining in a pleasure not a chore.There's plenty of dishes,serving plates,pot and pans etc. There's a dining table that will sit up to four guests. We have plenty of wine glasses and that ever necessary corkscrew. There's a toaster,coffee,microwave,oven and hob. There's a fridge and freezer.The flat has gas central heating and one will be able to adjust the amount of heat required in each room. The flat is warm and the winter and cool and breezy during the summer. There's a fanatstic feeling of space in the flat with 12 foot high ceilings throughout ,our guests won't feel cramped at all.

There's a washer/dryer which will come in handy for those travelling with children, or those wanting to take a suitcase full of clean clothes back with them.We also provide a iron and ironing board.There's no need for our guests to clean the flat before departing as the cleaning fee is included in the price. This will allow you that bit of extra time to get some last minute things done.

There's a colour TV with satelite/cable channels./DVD palyer. We also has a very fast internet connection/WI FI throughout the flat.

Nearby you'll find the marvellous Bury Place and is unique range of independent shops. The London Review of Books is on this street and their selection of books is divine. They also have an excellent cafe serving a great selection of teas,coffee,cakes ,salads and sandwiches. The shop often has author nights,so you be in for a treat if one of their events is happening during your stay.

Situated just behind Bury Place is a splendid courtyard called Pied Bull Yard There's a lovely wine bar called Truckies which has a very good selection of wines by the glass.If the sun is shining then one can sit outside and really enjoy the weather and a decent glass of wine in beautiful quiet surroundings. I was over the moon to learn that Le Cordon Bleu has just relocated to Pied Bull Yard. This international top notch cookery school also has a huge cafe serving all sorts of delightful treats!

Our guests will find an huge array of traditional English Pubs nearby. I always suggest having at least one Sunday Roast during a visit to London. The Museum Tavern opposite the British Museum serves a really good roast!

Opposite the flat is the historic Bloomsbury Church. This is a Hawksmoor designed church. It has wonderful concerts (mainly jazz or classical) throughout the month. For a very small entrance charge one can really enjoy the beauty of this place(and hear some relaxing music at the same time)

The British Museum is two minutes from the flat. It can be quite busy ,so an early start is a top tip if you wish to avoid the afternoon crowds.

The National Gallery,National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy are all within walking distance to the flat.For those with a talent for the painting, a quick visit to nearby L. Cornelissen on nearby Great Russell Street is a must visit. The shop has been there since 1855 and to this day still sells quality art materials.

Our guests will be able to walk with ease to other parts of Central London such as Holborn, Covent Garden and Fitzrovia. I would even suggest taking a Sunday walk into the City of London via Fleet Street, as at the weekend it's very quiet.

                          Location

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          The flat is located on the border of Covent Garden and Historic Bloomsbury with most London tourist attractions within a few minutes walk.

                          The nearby shopping on Oxford St will be a real treat for people who love to shop until they drop. From high end shops to the two very large budget Primarks,one will find something to take back home with them. After a morning strolling aroud the West End a special treat of a full English Afternnoon Tea will sure to become a special memory of your time in London. Yes, it can be somewhat expensive but it should be something that should be tried if you have the time and budget. The Ritz is by far the best in London.The Savoy, The Dorchester,Browns, and Clariddge's are all expensive but worth it.The National Portrait Gallery,The Wallace Collection and the Langham are more affordable and equally as good. Fortnum and Mason on nearby Picacadilly is also worth it. Their food hall is amazing/and even if you don't have time for the full Afternoon Tea you could buy some tea to take back with you. The tin cans ar simply stunning in design.A great gift for those back home.You will find that a few of the hotels near the British Museum also offer Afternoon Tea/but the ones listed above are far better.One exception is Bea's of Bloomsbury which is well worth a visit.
