Beautiful Westminster flat just minutes from Buckingham Palace. 04/17/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:

This lovely flat in a prime area in Westminster is the ideal for any bear visiting London. Although I never received my invitation to take tea with the Queen, it would have been only a 5 minute walk to reach Buckingham Palace. With so much to see and experience nearby, there’s not much need to take the Tube elsewhere, but the nearest station is right down the street. Exploring all day can wear a bear out, but it’s no effort to get back upstairs thanks to the handy lift (elevator). The charming one bedroom flat is an oasis of charm and light for times when you just want to put your paws up and relax. Not only is there a wide variety of places to go out to eat very close by, but you can take advantage of the nearby grocery stores to cook up your own feast in the fully stocked kitchen. At the end of the day, the comfy beds welcome you to curl up and hibernate for the night until the sun comes up and you head out again in a different direction for another adventure.
