Nestled between the two financial districts (City of London & Canary Wharf) on the North side of the Thames River, my City of London apartment offers the best of both worlds – close to the action but without the noise usually associated with city centre living! It is situated on a quiet side street.

This lovely two bedroom London City Vacation Rental apartment is close to everything you’ll need to make it your base in the city.

The property has:
Wooden floors
A homely & contemporary feel
Good layout with bedrooms up one end and living down the other
Sleeping accommodation (one king, one double) plus additional beds if you have more than four in your group.

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

Located nearby:
. Tower Bridge (breathtaking up close)
. Tower of London (centuries of history)
. Whitechapel Gallery (award winning gallery which has just been newly refurbished) . Spitalfields (markets)
. Brick Lane (dozens of restaurants and curry houses)
. St Katherine Docks (marina, restaurants)
. Hundreds of restaurants, fast food outlets, bars and shops within a small radius
. Parks and childrens play facilities
. Large supermarkets (about a 4 minute walk)
. Smaller grocery stores (which are even closer)

Situated in a very historic old part of London, the apartment is:

- 5 minutes to the nearest subway/tube/metro station – Whitechapel (East London - Orange), District (Green) & Hammersmith and City (Pink) lines
- 5 minutes to the nearest DLR station - Shadwell - with links to the Olympic Site
- Convenient to Canary Wharf (with hundreds of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops) by bus or tube, or walk along the river
- Bank station, Tower Gateway (Tower Bridge & the Tower of London)
- Accessible for Stratford Shopping Centre - one of the largest centres in the northern hemisphere, offering hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants

Whitechapel is on the Crossrail route with direct access to Heathrow airport.

Multiple bus connections go to the City (if you don’t want to walk 15 minutes), Fleet Street, Oxford Street and beyond.

If you really want to live like a local, hire a pay by the hour bike - hop on/hop off where you like at multiple points around the city. The closest bike station is located a minute from the apartment.

And for those who are attending one of the many conferences, seminars or trade shows at the ExCel Centre, the apartment is well placed to reach it easily.

Car: Not Necessary

Situated in a small street nestled between the two financial districts (City of London and Canary Wharf), 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!

Walk a few minutes in any direction and you will find dozens of restaurants, bars, shops, parks, and many famous tourist attractions including Whitechapel Gallery (founded 1901), Spitalfields (markets), Brick Lane (curry houses), St Katherine Docks (marina, restaurants), Tower of London (centuries of history) and possibly the most famous of all London attractions, Tower Bridge (breathtaking up close)!

And ever so close to the Olympics grounds.

The apartment is also very accessible to the ExCel Centre if you're attending one of the many conferences, seminars or trade shows there.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I am a keen conservationist, recycle where possible, and keep my use of toxic chemicals to a minimum. I'm also a dust allergy sufferer (not great in a city like London, I know!) and a clean-freak - and as those who work for me know, a bit of a perfectionist - so I can guarantee the apartment will be spotlessly clean for you. After all, I wouldn’t expect anyone to stay somewhere I wasn’t happy to stay myself :-)

Why the Owner Chose Tower Hamlets (London, UK):
Being an Aussie who grew up around water, I knew I needed to be close to the Thames River. The artistic East End of London (in which the apartment is situated) really has become the hip and trendy location to live, work and socialize in. Thankfully it's easy to reach hundreds upon hundreds of funky bars, amazing restaurants, quirky individual shops, world renowned art galleries, museums and fantastic markets - all within a 5 - 15 minute walk. Having owned the apartment for so many years, I've really seen the local area change dramatically.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Considering its location situated on a small street between two main arterial roads (so connections to the rest of the city are very easy), the apartment is extremely quiet! Unlike many of the more modern apartment blocks being built now, my home has lovely high ceilings & sash windows. The rooms are also bigger than is common these days, and all these factors give the apartment a bit of character!
