About the property

Tower View apt Central London

We are pleased to offer two luxury self-catering apartments in this Edwardian building, located close by the River Thames, with the world-famous Tower of London literally across the road, and the iconic Tower Bridge as our backdrop.

Our two-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 people, Plus an additional travel cot - appropriate for a baby up to 18 months’ old - available on request. Our one-bedroom apartment is bright and spacious, accommodating up to 5 people, again with travel cot available on request.

Both apartments are elegantly furnished, providing high-quality amenities and excellent value for money, given our prestigious

The Tower Hill location is ideal for both business and leisure visitors alike. For business visitors, the City of London financial district is on our doorstep. For leisure visitors, Tower Hill’s environs are steeped in history, from Roman times onwards, through the invasion of William the Conquerer, to the terrible exploits of Jack the Ripper, a short distance east in Whitechapel. We then come right up to the present-day architecture of the Shard and the Gherkin, both of which are within less than a mile’s radius and easily accessible, by public transport, taxi or on foot.

The area is well served by literally 100's of local restaurants to suit all budgets and sophisticated wine bars and London pubs. Sight seeing and the Theatres of the WestEnd are easily accessible by tube, bus or short cab ride. We aim to ensure that our apartments feel like your home away from home and our location next to the majestic Tower of London will leave you with fantastic memories and wanting to return!

The views from each room within these elegant apartments located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of this small, quiet and exclusive residential building are spectacular. The nearby Thames path enable guests to take a relaxing walk along the embankment and take in magnificent views as they walk to nearby St Paul's Cathedral, The Tate Modern, Covent Garden and the West End beyond.

Tower Hill has an abundance of high quality restaurants, which cater to every palate and every wallet. A short stroll past the 'Beef Eaters' (guards of the Tower and the Crown Jewels) you will find St Katherine's Dock filled with swanky private yachts as well a wide selection of trendy eateries. Just across Tower Bridge at Butlers Wharf you will find Sir Terrance Conran's famous group of restaurants including 'Pont De La Tour' (Fish) and the 'Chop House' (contemporary English food). Both these locations offer alfresco dining by the river for that perfect romantic and memorable evening spent watching the world go by with friends and family.

Perfect for sightseeing and business trips: From our apartment you can easily visit all the famous sites without need for a car. Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are approximately a 7 minute journey by Tube or 20 minutes by bus. This means that guests can easily access to the main tourist attractions such as St Paul's cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as the National Gallery and British museum etc. Harrods and the hustle and bustle of all shopping along Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets are also a short journey by tube or bus but Tower Hill and the City also provide an extensive choice of shopping close by. The tour buses pass outside our front door if you want the thrill of seeing the sights from the famous London Red Bus!

The apartments are easily accessible from London's main airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted) by Tube, rail or bus within an hour.... and London City airport is just 25 mins using the Dockland Light railway

City of London / Tower of London Apartment Spectac

  • 5 of 5

Description was right on. Apartment was immaculate, well-maintained, nicely stocked, wonderful location. Right next to underground station making it easily accessible to both Heathrow and any location in London. Not only would we recommend, but we would rent again the next time we are in London. Nice restaurants locally and grocery store around the block.

Fantastic service, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is so well situated. A couple of minutes from the underground, Tower of London, eateries etc.(the Tower of London is right across the road and can be seen, along with Tower Bridge from all the windows). The unit itself is lovely and Martin and Jane could not have been more thoughtful and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely telling my friends.thank you so much Martin and Jane.

Amazing apartment, Amazing View, Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

We have been home for a week now and my favorite memories of our time in London always bring me back to this apartment.

We were warmly greeted by Jane and she had purchased a few breakfast items to get us started. She showed us how everything worked and answered questions.

As has been mentioned, washcloths are not provided. We found this true at our VRBO in Oxford as well. Simply bring your own as we did. In addition to all of the pans and dishes you might need for cooking and a few staple items like sugar and tea bags, there is a drawer in the hall full of maps and travel guides to assist with your planning.

The location is ideal! Very close to Tower Hill tube station and directly across the street from the Tower of London and its gift shop. There are plenty of places to eat very close by. One night we were so tired we placed a "Take Away" and online order with Bodeans (which is right next door) and enjoyed a delicious meal in the apartment. The Pizza Express was also a pleasant surprise as it was actually a nice mid-priced sit-down restaurant. The Kitchen across the street provided us with a "traditional" English breakfast-complete with baked beans-for under £8. Don't miss visiting the church there on the corner-it was beautiful.

Every morning and evening gave us the unbeliever view of the Tower Bridge. We felt a part of the city and yet very comfortable and safe. The heavy curtains did a good deal to cut down on the noise of the traffic but it really wasn't a problem.

I can't imagine our stay in London without this wonderful apartment as our home base.

Also, I received a notice this morning-one week after our departure-that my security deposit had been refunded.

Thank you Martin and Jane for a wonderful place to stay.

This was a perfect place. We purchased the London City Pass and this apartment was right next to the DLR, the Tour bus and the boat Pier making all of our travels easy. It was clean roomy and the view is spectacular. Jane was also fantastic!!!

Gorgeous Views, Nice Building

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great area, very close to tube stations and the river boat. The view was unbeatable, gorgeous Tower Bridge was visible from every window. The apartment came with everything you might need, the building itself was quiet and convenient, we were even able to check in early.

There were a few broken items that they pointed out to us, and the living room was pretty shabby. We asked for two twin beds in the second bedroom and found them almost comically uncomfortable, springs poking up right through the middle. However, everyone was very helpful and despite these minor flaws it was a great stay.
