Uber London Phoenix House
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This cute apartment is situated so close to London's theatre land you will be spoilt for choice which show to see first. You can walk home in 2 minutes from the theatres, amazing restaurants and cinemas of Leicester square.
Buckingham palace and all the other tourist attractions are a stones throw away.
The apartment is a 1 bedroom apartment with sleeping space (sofa bed) in the lounge area. A shower/bathroom with a fitted kitchen to prepare you meals, although you have so many restaurants close by you would be crazy to be cooking !
Minutes in one direction take you to the north bank of the River Thames, with close up views of the houses of parliament and the London Eye. Seconds in the other, and you'll be on the strand, the road that connects the founding site of the city of London with Trafalgar Square. Flip a coin and start exploring.
The award winning golden jubilee bridges, two twin cable-stayed pedestrian bridges that straddle the Hungerford railway bridge, strap across the river waiting to take you to the other side. Crossing the river via this feat of engineering proves to be both exhilarating and scenic as you see and feel the waters gushing underneath. On the other side, Southbank buzzes with its electric pedestrian scene. This promenade teems with street performers, art installations and bona fide attractions like the Sea Life London Aquarium and newly relocated London dungeon. Hop on the glinting London Eye that has been tempting you since your arrival and take in a more dynamic view of the city. You'll be surprised at how much time you'll be spending 'south of the river', with the royal festival hall, British Film Institute, Hayward Gallery and many more diversions that make this area nearly impossible to leave.
Back across the river, the theatres, shops and restaurants along the strand jostle to catch your eye. See a show, do some shopping or stop at a café and watch London stream by. Of course, for the most discerning guest, one could always chance a trip down the nearby mall to see if the queen is having visitors. Buckingham palace, the official London residence of the British Monarch is simply a sight not to miss. More than a stately palace, Buckingham Palace is the centre of attention during times that have shaped British and international history. Stand beneath the golden wings of the Victoria Memorial and feel the site resonate with history – from the sea of flowers laid by a stunned nation in mourning to the sea of honorary wedding guests hailing a young duke and duchess. A visit here will move you.
Be moved in another way and catch one of London's two remaining route master bus routes. These bright red open-backed buses are one of the most enduring icons of London city life, and although the fleet was officially retired in 2005, popular demand has kept two routes, the 9 and the 15, in service. The 15 will take you from the top of the mall, up the strand and all the way to the steps of St. Paul's cathedral. Alight here and be transported to a historical time of turmoil and triumph. The building that stands today has done so since 1675, after just surviving the great fire of London. However, this area has been the site of worship for well over 1400 years. Redesigned by Sir Christopher wren, St. Paul's cathedral was the tallest building to stand in London right up until the 1960's. The addition of skyscrapers to the London skyline may have stripped this global landmark of its former accolade, but architects bow in reverence as regulations forbid the construction of any building within the cathedral's radius that will block its view, from the financial district to the river.
After waking up the next morning, you'll face the battle once more of deciding what to do, for so much of London persists to be just outside your door:
-The National Gallery
-Piccadilly circus, and much more.
And of course, catch a tube from Leicester Square underground station, 30 seconds from your gates, and continue the adventure further a field.
