About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Albany Court is a delightful apartment situated in-between the Royal Family's residence, Buckingham Palace, and The Houses of Parliament. This is a one-bedroomed apartment with US king bed, and an additional murphy wall bed (in the living room), directly opposite St James's Park tube station!

Albany Court is on the 1st floor and has an elevator. Located on the corner of Palmer Street and Petty France (please see the street map link below), it's situated in one of London's most prestigious neighbourhoods - the regal and historical district of Saint James's Park, beside Mayfair.

Why not take a Royal stroll alongside your London home? Saint James's Park is a magnificent sweep of open lawns, trees, and gardens with a lake at its very heart!

Once you've crossed the park, you'll arrive at the Mall - a broad open avenue that runs between Trafalgar Square, London's Theatreland, and Buckingham Palace. You'll notice Trafalgar Square and Admiralty Arch on the right, with Buckingham Palace on the left. The Mall is lined with many stately buildings.

Check to see if the 'Royal Standard', the Queen's flag is flying outside Buckingham Palace - this means she's at home!

Catch the Changing of the Guards or visit the state rooms of Buckingham Palace itself or the state carriages and splendid horses at the Royal Mews.

Check the London Tourist Board's website to see what's happening (the Queen's Birthday, Lord Mayor Show, etc.). Albany Court will give you an advantage when all these events are on, as you're so close to all the action!

To the right of Albany Court are the Houses of Parliament, the River Thames and Westminster Abbey. You can literally adjust your wristwatch to Big Ben within two minutes of leaving Albany Court. At the Houses of Parliament, visit the House of Lords, House of Commons, and the 'Strangers' Galleries.'

Westminster Abbey is the ceremonial site of almost every British coronation from William the Conqueror in 1066 to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Monarchs buried here include Henry VII, Elizabeth I, and Mary, Queen of Scots. Nearby is the Tomb to the Unknown Warrior and Poet's Corner, the resting place of Chaucer, Robert Browning, and Alfred Tennyson among others. Number Ten Downing Street, the Prime Minister's office, is also nearby.

The River Thames is besides the Houses of Parliament. At Westminster Pier, catch a boat to the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Tate Modern art gallery, Saint Paul's Cathedral, and Greenwich to visit its Maritime Museum and Observatory. Alternatively, visit the London Eye, London Aquarium, and South Bank Arts Centre just a walk over Westminster Bridge.

You will also be surrounded by London's greatest art collections: The Royal Academy (home to Constable, Gainsborough, etc.), Tate Britain (Hockney, Turner, and British art from the 1500s onwards), The National Gallery (Van Gogh, Monet, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Goya, and Rembrandt), or take a Damien Hirst-designed boat to the Tate Modern (Dali, Picasso, Mattisse, Munch, Pollock, Lichtenstin, etc.).

For some shopping therapy, visit Pall Mall, Picadilly Circus, Regent Street, Oxford Street, or New Bond Street. Foodies will love Fortnum and Mason's food hall. To stock up on general groceries go to Sainsbury's supermarket on Victoria Street just round the corner (only 100 metres away), the largest supermarket in Central London and opposite Westminster Cathedral!

Unbelievably, Saint James's Park tube station is RIGHT BESIDE Albany Court. This is extremely convenient for all, particularly those travelling to/from Heathrow Airport.

Gatwick Airport travellers just take the Gatwick Express train to/from Victoria Train Station, which is just at the end of Victoria Street and literally a five-minute taxi journey.

The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, gas hob, electric oven and brand new Bosch washer/dryer.

The bathroom has natural light and a heated towel rail. The entire flat is bathed in sunlight as the ceilings are very high and it benefits from both south and west aspects.

There's a telephone with answering service, as well as high speed ADSL Broadband Internet Access and a brand new Philips LCD TV and Sony multi-regional DVD/CD Player, so bring your DVD collection. The TV benefits from digital freeview so expect more than the normal 5 terrestial channels, you'll have hundreds!

Rent with confidence from owners with six years' experience of accomodating VRBO-ers.

Albany Court is waiting to offer you a truly ROYAL experience!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: A Londoner born and raised in South London who moved to Central London in 1991 and knows it like the back of her hand. Professional landlady.

Why the Owner Chose Westminster, London, UK:
I used to go up to Central London as a child to feed the ducks at St James's Park and loved the area from knee-high. This apartment is so centrally located to all the touristy sites and is prestigious with top security yet quiet.

Imagine beating the queues by going to Westminster Abbey within 5 minutes' stroll from your Central London apartment, then returning home to relaunch, then walking in another direction to find yourself in front of Buckingham Palace within another 5 minutes - this will be your life at this apartment.
