Situated on the edge of Zone 1, close to two tube stations and with frequent buses to Waterloo, Westminster and beyond, it is the perfect base for a vacation exploring London. Both tube stations are a 10-minute walk away, or take the bus and be at Tate Britain, Big Ben, or Westminster Abbey in 10-15 minutes!
The house is situated in a safe, quiet, residential street and with space to spread out and relax (a scarce commodity in most London holiday apartments) it is perfect for families, couples, or larger groups. On quiet nights you can even hear Big Ben strike and the River Thames is just a short walk away. The new American Embassy is being built nearby, very close to the impressive MI6 building.
Please note that this is a traditional British semi-detatched house, not an apartment. You occupy the whole house, so no noisy neighbours above, or below!
There is both a large supermarket
and a smaller express supermarket 5-minutes away, plus cafés, delis and restaurants, all within easy reach. There is also a gym nearby to work off the the calories.
