About the Property

Both 2 bedroom/2 bathroom flats are in this same Victorian Period building.

Flat A - Penthouse Flat with Spectacular views of the Tower of London and river Thames:

Well appointed, in elegant contemporary decor, this 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, flat on the 5th floor of a late Victorian building (with lift) sleeps 4. It offers spectacular views of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & River Thames; as well as superb access to transport links taking you into the West End. The nearest tube station is just a 3 minutes walk away.

NEW: Flat B - Lightly refurbished along similar elegant lines to our original property, (Please see photos for Flat B, below) this flat is situated at the rear of the property. It therefore DOES NOT offer the same view as our current rental; it overlooks 10 Trinity Square a beautiful Grade II listed building and of course the same standard of service, cleanliness, and comfortable accommodation.

In the heart of the City; both flats are perfectly located for the business traveller, and/or for those on a family* holiday, or quick sojourn.

PLEASE CLICK ON MORE DETAILS BELOW:

FLAT A: Penthouse Flat with a view - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4:

The Master Bedroom offers a sumptuous king-size bed (with a TEMPUR - memory foam - mattress) while the second bedroom's zip & link bed can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles (pictured) as required. We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness.

We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Four electric fans (two table & two floor-standing, which all garnered favourable comments during last summer's rare heatwave) are permanently placed in the apartment as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a replete stocked kitchen (cook and tableware.) Previous guests have been pleasantly surprised to find real wine glasses. Given a dining area which can seat six, this means you have a real alternative to eating out.

NEW: FLAT B - THIS FLAT SLEEPS 4, but can accommodate a 5th person

The Master Bedroom offers a king-size zip & link bed which can either be made up as a king-size, or divided into two singles as required (King = 180 cms x 200 cms - Singles = 90 cms x 200 cms.) The smaller second bedroom offers a double bed (115 cms x 175 cms.) Please note the diameter of the room is such that the bed is placed against the wall.

There is a single pull out sofa bed in the living room (90 cms x 180 cms) perfect for a child, or slim built adult.

This can be made available at an EXTRA charge of 5% on the rental balance.

We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere, attention to detail and cleanliness. We offer our guests Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, plus small touches of luxury (such as complimentary toiletries and Nespresso capsules) to add to your comfort and enjoyment. Three floor standing electric fans are permanently placed in the apartment, as this is a period Victorian building, and thus not air-conditioned. Staples include internet access, via a WIFI connection, as well as a well-stocked kitchen (both cook and tableware.) Given a dining area which seats five, there is a real alternative to eating out.


LOCAL AREA:

There are many restaurants & bars within walking distance. From the family friendly 'Kitchen@Tower' (across the road) to restaurants which suit every palate, & wallet, the area is as rich with cosmopolitan life as with historical landmarks.

Within walking distance you will also find the Tower of London (home of the Crown Jewels and famous ravens) Tower Bridge, All Hallows church (from where Samuel Peyps watched and recorded the great fire of London) and the famous Leadenhall Market - (the covered market in Gracechurch street, primarily selling food and flowers as seen in 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'.) St Katharine's Dock is just 200m east of Tower Hill Station, the O2 Arena is close by (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich) and further afield, world famous Oxford street is easily accessible within 15-20 mins via the Central Line tube (subway) from Bank Station which is a 5 minute walk.

Pop on the tube (subway) or the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and sample all the other attractions London has to offer, from a perfect luxurious base in Trinity Square.
.
* While we are happy to welcome families with children, aged 4 and above, I am afraid we do not have the facilities to accommodate families with babies or toddlers in either flat.

* * When enquiring please include Arrival and Departure flight times - if known - and children's ages - if relevant.

* * * Please note we cannot accept bookings from parties travelling 'Stand-By' or 'No Res'.

Whilst we prefer to check-in our guests in the morning - or at lunchtime - we can be flexible. Check-ins after 9:30 PM incur a late check-in fee, as per our booking form. Check-ins on CHRISTMAS DAY, BOXING DAY, NEW YEARS DAY, on the EASTER WEEKEND and other UK BANK HOLIDAYS are - unfortunately - not possible.

Car: Not Necessary

* ARRIVING: Both London Heathrow and London Gatwick airport are quite a distance from central London. Details of a car service can be provided, but this is a relatively costly option.

.

The most cost effective way to get to the flat/apartment from Heathrow Airport is to take the London Underground (Tube/Subway) - Piccadilly & then District lines - which will take you from Heathrow to the Tower Hill Tube Station (located just 100 yards from the flat.)

.

First take the Piccadilly line to Hammersmith. Then, at Hammersmith change to the District line, which will take you to Tower Hill. The change at Hammersmith is easy - you just walk across to the other side of the same platform, with no steps to negotiate. There are stairs to negotiate, up from the District line platform at Tower Hill, but there is a landing halfway up the flight of stairs.

.

Arriving from Gatwick is also easy: The Gatwick Express train runs to Victoria Station in central London. From there take the Circle or District Lines, both run directly east to the Tower Hill station. Alternatively, take a First Capital Connect train from Gatwick to London Bridge Station, and then a taxi across the river to Tower Hill. It's a mile away - approximately a 5 minute taxi-cab ride.

.

* SITUATED: Within walking distance of the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, All Hallows Church and near Leadenhall Market. St Katharine's Dock is 200m east of Tower Hill Station. Also close to the O2 (DLR to the Canary Wharf, Jubilee line to North Greenwich.) The tube/subway gives you access to the whole of London, from world famous Oxford Street, to London Museums, Palaces and the magic of West End Theatre.
