The London region

NB - We will send through a full information file on booking. Maclise Road is an easy walk to Olympia Tube (District Line) in two minutes, Shepherds Bush Tube (Central Line) in 7-8 minutes, and Hammersmith on the Piccadilly Line in 7-8 minutes. Central London is no further than 25 minutes away by these routes. There are also regular buses to many different destinations from the bus stop outside Olympia Exhibition Hall (three minutes walk). You can use the popular Boris Bikes –pick up and drop off (there is a cycle park the other side of Olympia train station nearby. You just need to open an account with them online, it is easy. It is also quite easy to walk to High Street Kensington and Holland Park (about 15 minutes) and from there London is your oyster. Speaking of oysters, don't forget to buy an Oyster card, as it makes tube and train rides much cheaper (you can buy them at Tube stations). More information at And of course there are the splendid Black London taxi cabs, which can be hailed from almost anywhere,

and also we can recommend slightly cheaper local taxi firms.

Central London/Zone 1

Don 't miss! – 13 unmisable things to do in & Around London!

* For the best English tea in London dont miss tea at the Wolseley Hotel (www.thewolseley.

com) at 160 Piccadilly

* For an excellent upmarket shopping experience head to Old Bond Street (www.bondstreet. and the adjoining Regent Street - it's a gorgeous street to browse, stop for a

coffee and enjoy some people watching

* For delightful views of the river and entire city take a ride on the London Eye ferris wheel


* For a real treat or a celebration have lunch at the Petersham Nurseries in Richmond -


* While there (about 25mins from apartment) work up an appetite with a walk in Richmond

Park, Henry VIII's old hunting grounds, and a 'country' experience in the heart of London


* For a spot of pampering heaven the Spa at the Hyde Park Mandarin Oriental at 66

Knightsbridge is the place to go (

* The new Westfield mega-shopping Mall on Shepherds Bush (10 mins walk from apartment)

is not everyone's cup of tea but if you want to shop til you drop - it's heaven!


* London is one of the arts' capitals of the world - see for everything

you need to know

* A day in the famous university town of Oxford (50mins on M40) among its honey-coloured

'dreaming spires' is wonderful. You can boat through the incredible architecture, visit the

legendary colleges and stroll along the river (

* To see the most beautiful countryside in England go to the Cotswolds in Oxfordshire and

Gloucestershire (about 1.5hrs on M40). It is the classic 'shires' of JRR Tolkein's imagination in

Lord of the Rings, and is all gorgeous villages, tranquil rivers, and wonderful pubs and walks

( Best to stay overnight there.

* For a round of golf, drive to Stoke Park (30mins on M40) where James Bond plays his golf

(in Goldfinger) and where Bridget Jones' Diary was filmed ( There's a

spa and great restaurant too

* Head to royal Henley on Thames (50mins on M40), home of the world famous Royal

of the oldest buildings in Europe. The Great Park there and the river make for glorious walks

( Nice pub too at the Two Brewers, right on the castle walls
