BoroughBase lurks tranquilly In the shadow of the Shard, Europe's tallest habitable structure, and 10min walk to the river, the remains of Shakespeare's Rose theatre as well as the rebuilt Globe and attractions including the historic Borough Market, these days offering organic artisanal produce alongside foodie restaurants.
Even closer to hand, numerous old-style pubs provide hearty lunchtime and evening meals plus traditional ales. Some of those nearby have a beer garden.
For City workers the Bank of England is a 15min or so walk. Lovers of West End theatre, music and dining can reach Charing Cross (with Covent Garden and Soho beyond) on foot in under half an hour. The end of the street is served by a 24-hour bus and is surrounded by a handful of underground stations including Northern (both branches), Bakerloo and Jubilee lines.
Daily provisions are available from two mini-supermarkets (Co-op and Tesco) within about 100 yards/metres of the door, each of which is usually open until 11pm.

The South East England region
BoroughBase offers a choice of zone 1 tube stations, a 24-hour bus service and - because of the way the river bends - easy walkability to both the financial heart of the City of London and the cultural, shopping, entertainment and gastronomic array of the West End.
Central London/Zone 1
Borough and Bankside together form the area just south of the Thames between Waterloo and London Bridge stations and north of Elephant & Castle. Amid the stunning height of the newly finished Shard of Glass to the sedate side streets where Charles Dickens strolled 200 years ago lies an historic yet constantly vibrant inner London district that offers great pubs, restaurants and other leisure amenities.

"It couldn't be better"
We have enjoyed a very nice stay. The apartment is fully equipped, modern, comfortable and very neat. It is very well located as it is close to a tube station, it is also at an easy walking distance to the Globe/Tate Modern etc. Finally, what was also very pleasant was the kindness of James and Ellie who were easily reachable and very helpful.

"good location, well resourced in terms of kitchen, tv, internet etc."
A well furnished,well resourced apartment in a good location. However, some lights were not working, the bath could be awkward for some people and the kitchen tap had a leak. Overall it seemed as if it needed a bit of maintenance. Comparef to staying in a 4 star hotel, this is excellent value though.
Thanks for the alert: a new tap has since been fitted and lightbulbs replaced. (The bathtub is as pictured and should be no problem for anyone able-bodied.) James

"Super appartement au coeur de Londres !!!"
Nous avons passé une excellent séjour dans l'appartement de James. Nous sommes parties 4 filles : 2 mamans avec nos deux filles respectives. La salle de bain est spacieuse, avec baignoire. La cuisine est très bien équipée. Nous avons seulement du emmener les torchons. L'alarme incendie est un petit peu sensible. Prévoir une chaise dessous quand on fait griller du pain pour l'éteindre. Le lit de la chambre est formidablement confortable, le sofa pour les ados un peu moins. Il règne dans ce quartier un calme absolu malgré la présence à 10 min à pied de 3 stations de métro. Je remercie James pour sa disponibilité et toutes les petites attentions présentes dans l'appartement : papier wc, sopalain, sacs poubelles, thé, sucre, sel, poivre......et bien d'autres encore. Je recommande vivement cette location, qui je pense, pour Londres a un rapport qualité prix imbattable.

A pleasant and hassle-free experience from beginning to end, all questions dealt with promptly and in detail. Lovely location literally 10 minutes walking time from central London. Amenities, restaurants and lovely pubs all close at hand as well as three Tube stations to choose from. Our Daughter who accompanied us had the use of a very comfortable sleeper couch and was also suitably impressed. Already looking forward to our next visit!

"Pleasant flat near the city"
Borough base is a pleasant flat. Beds are confortable. Kitchen is small but practical.
A lot of transports to London from this place
