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.
*Upcoming events near this property are the Floating Film Festival and London on Water at St. Katherine’s Dock, the Annual festival of cycling Ride London on the 27th of July, the London Craft Beer festival at Tobacco Dock on the 3rd and 5th of August and of course all major events at the Excel London. This property is an excellent choice to be at the 1st row of the action for free!
