  • Easy family times in London

    "The flat was beautiful with all of the comforts of our own home! Don't let the initial hallway fool you, the flat was exactly as shown in the pictures complete with comfortable beds, a dinning area for 6 people, and all working appliances. The owner had another person meet us for check in - who was gracious enough to wait for our arrival (thank you for your patience Debbie! We were stuck in traffic so don't call until you really know you are 30 minutes away from the flat. Once I fully paid for the flat (fyi...use pay pal if you can. Much easier than a wire transfer), Rachel sent a step by step guide to reach the flat complete with transportation options. The only thing I will do next time is to schedule our arrival in the afternoon instead of the morning so we can drop our bags in the flat straight away. Rachel and Debbie provided loads of extras including shampoo, soap, bottled water and milk. We did not feel like we had to immediately run out and buy anything which was such a blessing. I read comments about crime and I personally do not agree. My family that included children walked all around the area with no concern. A block away is a mini cab office and a Holiday Inn Express so there are a number of travelers along the street. We would definitely recommend Rachel's flat especially people familiar with the London Hospital area. Thank you Rachel for opening up your home, answering my 90,000 questions via email, and returning my deposit so quickly!"

  • An Absolute Gem

    "This flat is an absolute gem. Perfect location, great accommodations, and helpful owner. The flat is beautiful appointed, very clean, and has everything you need which makes packing much easier. If you decide to cook in the flat you have everything you’ll need, but with all the great restaurants and the amazing Borough Market just minutes from your door there is no reason to cook. Enjoy your vacation and let someone else prepare the food. The location is perfect, in my opinion. Five-minute walk to London Bridge underground station through a safe and well lit neighborhood. As a single woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and never anxious. The flat is close to River Thames if you want to enjoy a beautiful walk (highly recommended). For me the easy and quick access to Borough Market and London Bridge train station makes this flat a #1 location. Borough Market was one of my favorite places to visit, browse, sample, and buy! The owner, Lynne, is very easy to work with. She’ll meet you at the appointed time to review the flat, share good-to-know things about the unit and the area, and then leave you to enjoy your time in London. I give nothing but high praise for this rental unit. Great location, great flat, great owner, and great city. And did I mention Borough Market…"

  • Lovely stay - easy access to the city

    "We stayed for ten days and really enjoyed the flat. The four of us fit perfectly with plenty of room to spare. Arrangements were very easily coordinated with the owners, and we really felt we received good value for our money. If you are planning a visit to London, this flat, with access to a train about a block away, provides a lovely home-base. We fixed our own breakfasts, traveled into London or around SE and NE England, had a later lunch at a pub, and then went back "home" to relax and have a drink. We couldn't have been happier with our visit. Thank you!"

  • wonderful London

    "My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful flat on our last trip to London. The flat is very clean and well appointed with all that you need for a very comfortable stay. The owners,Mary and Laura are wonderful to work with. They are very attentive and helpful with a lot of recommendations for all that you may for your stay including restaurants, stores, food markets, underground stations, etc. the location of the flat is excellent. There is great shopping and restaurant options within easy walking distance, including the theater district for shows. There are multiple underground stations closely too making it very simple to go anywhere you want both in London or outside the city. I can't say enough about this wonderful property and the location. It is on a quiet residential street so it is wonderful to come home after a busy day in the city to the peace and quiet of your home away from home. I would highly recommend staying here."

London Travel Tips

London is of the most visited and cosmopolitan cities in the world with something for everyone, from entertainment and art to architecture and shopping and everything in between.

The capital of England is steeped in history. A visit to London sends you traveling back in time - from a far-north village in the Roman Empire it was in the beginning to the cultural and financial powerhouse it is today. Learn firsthand about the British monarchy through the ages as well as the historic developments in fascinating places like palaces, abbeys, museums and theatres.

It is a mecca for art galleries, museums and a world of imagination. Historic buildings in a variety of styles line the streets and are interspersed with more modern architecture for a unique blend of old and new worlds. All around the city you'll find art galleries displaying works from different mediums and theatres featuring performances of both historical pieces through modern day full-scale musicals. London has been home to writers, artists and creative types for centuries and this eclectic sense can be felt as you wander the streets of the city.

London is also an international hub with more than 300 languages spoken. This mix of backgrounds creates an exciting blend of delicious ethnic cuisine, fascinating styles in fashion and a thrilling place for you to explore.

Things to Do in London

- Buckingham Palace: To see firsthand how the royals live, you'll want to visit Buckingham Palace. This has been the official royal residence for the British monarch since 1837 with Queen Victoria. Buckingham Palace can be found in Westminster and is used for many official events and receptions held by Queen Elizabeth II. The palace has 775 rooms including 19 state rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms. The state rooms are used for official and state entertaining and are open to the public each year for the majority of August and September.

- The Globe Theatre: Shakespeare said that "all the world's a stage," and you can step back in time and experience the place where the genius produced his great works. The original was built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men. It was destroyed in a fire and second was erected, but it was also destroyed. A modern reconstruction of The Globe was built in 1997 and opened with a production of "Henry V." Experience one of Shakespeare's comedies or tragedies as it would have been seen during his time, in the round with the audience circling the stage.

- Tate Modern: Art lovers do not want to miss the stunning displays at the Tate Modern. As you wander through the Tate Modern, you'll see collections from 1500 through present day from artists all over the world. The collections display mediums in all forms including painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, photography, video and film, installation and performance. The best part? The Tate Modern is free to visitors.

- Big Ben: Big Ben’s official name is Elizabeth Tower, renamed in 2012 from Clock Tower, to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and Queen Elizabeth II. It has the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world and is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower. Book a tour and travel up 334 stone spiral steps to the top where you can take in amazing views of London.

- London Eye: Take a ride on the London Eye, a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames. It's the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe and was built in 1999. It offers you the highest public viewing point in London, and you can enjoy unbeatable bird's eye views from the top.

- Madame Tussauds: For a bit of silliness, head over to Madame Tussauds to see was figurines of your favorite celebrities. A variety of singers, actors and performers can be seen in wax form through the museum as well as statues of the royal family and famous figures throughout history. The brave of heart can venture through the Chamber of Horrors located onsite.

Shopping in London

- Harrod's: London is a great place for some retail therapy and Harrod's should be at the top of your list. It's an upscale department store on Brompton Road near Hyde Park. It occupies 5 acres and more than 330 different departments. You can peruse everything from clothing to jewelry, food and wine, home? goods and everything in between.

- King's Road: For more shopping excitement, head over to King's Road, a street running through Chelsea and Fulham.

Enjoy wandering through the area perusing the various shops and delighting in the beautiful goods to be found.
