Nestled between the two financial districts (City of London and Canary Wharf) on the North side of the Thames River, my apartment offers the best of both worlds – close proximity to the action but without all the noise that’s usually associated with city centre living. The apartment is situated on a quiet one-way street, and the bedrooms are at the rear of the property facing onto a converted church (now used for a children's day care centre) so there are no noisy bells to disturb your Sunday morning lie-in.

. Lovely, bright, comfortable apartment close to everything you need to make it your base in the city
. Wooden floors throughout (except for the double bedrooms) and has a homely and contemporary feel. It is light and spacious and is able to cater for up to six people
. Comfortable beds with orthopaedic mattresses are provided in each room
. Super-comfortable single or double blow up mattresses are provided if you have more than four in your group

Available for your use is a TV, video and DVD player, as well as a number of books, guides and other helpful information to make your stay in the city as enjoyable as possible.

WIFI internet is also provided for your use.

The apartment has access to a communal roof terrace with great views over the rooftops of the city with views towards Tower Bridge in one direction, and Canary Wharf in the other. The perfect setting for a few quiet moments contemplating life in the evening whilst looking across the rooftops of London.

Within a 10 minute walking radius you will find possibly the most famous of all London attractions, Tower Bridge (absolutely stunning up close), as well as the Tower of London (centuries of history), Spitalfields (markets), Brick Lane (curry houses), St Katherine Docks (marina, restaurants) and dozens of restaurants, fast food outlets, bars, shops and parks. The closest supermarket is about a 3 minute walk away.

Situated in a very historic old part of London, the apartment is located about a 5-6 minute walk from the local metro/subway station – Tower Hill, which is in Zone 1 (the most central area) on the Circle (yellow) and District (green) lines. There are also lots of bus connections going into the City of London (if you can’t be bothered with the 20 minute walk), as well as buses to take you to Fleet Street, Oxford Street and beyond. Canary Wharf is also conveniently accessed either by DLR (overground train) or the bus, or a 40 minute walk along the Thames riverfront. And if you really want to live like a local, there is always the option of hiring one of the thousands of blue 'Boris' bikes available in the city centre - there are three bike docking stations just around the corner.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I'm a true-blue Aussie living in London. I like being right in the heart of the action and realized long ago that as time is precious, it was far better to live in the centre of town and have a short commute to everything I loved, than to live further out and have to travel everywhere! London offers so much and as a newcomer, I wanted to experience it all! Living so close to Tower Bridge, right in between the two main financial districts, meant that I had the best of all possible worlds, whilst also having an amazing choice of shops, restaurants, Wilton's Theatre (a one minute walk from the front door and a place I highly recommend to EVERY visitor) and so many other amenities, all within a matter of minutes away. This was my home for a number of years. I am sure you will love the apartment as much as I do, and as much as my previous guests!

Why the Owner Chose Tower Hamlets (London, UK):
Being an Australian growing up around water, it was always important to me to be near water in London too. And as a runner, what better location to live in than somewhere close to the Thames for a morning jog?! The fact that it is so central and close to all the 'buzz' of arty East London were other added bonuses. And it's right next to St Katherine Docks - one of the little known beauty spots of the city!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Situated on a small, quiet street, the apartment offers tranquility and yet you will be just minutes by foot from many bustling areas. I am a bit of a keen conservationist, try and recycle wherever I can and also prefer to use environmentally friendly cleaning products (ie as little chemicals as possible). I like to do my bit to look after our planet so I buy recycled products even though they generally cost a little more. However, rest assured that I don’t like to compromise on quality and am a bit of a clean-freak, so I can guarantee you’ll be staying in a lovely clean, well-maintained apartment. After all, I wouldn’t expect anyone to stay somewhere I wasn’t happy to stay myself!
