The London region
London is a vibrant, bustling city steeped in culture and history with many hidden treasures to discover. The list of things to do and places to see is endless. As the old saying goes ... "if you are tired of London... you are tired of life!" The city of London is home to Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, the gothic buildings of Westminster, Big Ben and St Paul's Cathedral... just a few of the landmark places of interest to visit. There are a wide array of free galleries and museums that are very easy to access using the great public transport networks including buses, tubes and London's Black cabs (taxis). Why not try visiting the Tate Gallery then taking a taxi boat along the river Thames, past the Houses of Parliament to visit Tate Modern on the South bank where there are a wealth of restaurants, cafés, market stalls and street performers as well as the London Eye and London Aquarium? Shopping in London is second to none. Whether you want to shop for luxury goods at Selfridges or Harrods, hit the high street shops of Oxford Street, the vintage shops at Covent Garden (Seven Dials) or explore the stalls of Brick lane, Camden and Borough markets, it is all on your door step. The West End is home to some of the world's greatest theatres with Soho, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus and China town all in walking distance of each other. Perfect for a night out to catch a show and dine in one of the numerous top class restaurants on offer, from Michelin starred to one of the local gems, followed by a visit to one of the many bars or clubs to experience what London's night life has to offer.
Central London/Zone 1
We reckon the location of our property is unbeatable! Situated in a residential area, just 2 minutes to the nearest Underground station and a short stroll to Victoria Station, it is easily accessible for great shopping and many tourist attractions..... Tate Britain, the River Thames, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, St James' Park, Battersea Park, Downing Street, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye, the London Aquarium, river boat rides, King's Road shopping & Chelsea are close by, and just a short bus or tube ride are shopping areas and attractions such as Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Knightsbridge and South Kensington. Why not visit Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Leicester Square, the National Gallery, the National Theatre, the National Film Theatre, the Imperial War Museum, Hyde Park, the South Bank with the Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Tate Britain and all the other main central London attractions?....there is really too much to list here! For late night finishes, the apartment's location is close to 24-hour bus routes, and a taxi destination too. Within close walking distance are great local shops and restaurants as well and even a daily street market. There are easy transport links to all London airports and mainline stations, and London and regional bus tours - many leave from Victoria itself! All in all, the area and location of our apartment is great, ensuring an ideal base for sightseeing/shopping and indeed as a relaxing 'home from home' - great for unwinding too.

Thanks for your great review, we are delighted you had a great trip to London.
All the windows (except the kitchen) have Venetian blinds for privacy and to keep the majority of the light out when required. Due to the odd configuration of the windows these do not keep out all the light, in response to this we shall be ordering black out blinds to attach to the windows of the bedrooms.
