The London region

The attractions of London are too numerous to mention but all are easily accessed from this charming flat.

Having lived in the area for 15 years the owners have a wealth of knowledge not only of the famous London attractions but also lesser known local's favourites and the many activities and sights of interest many within easy walking distance.

A couple of highlights include Colombia Road flower market and the wealth of small pub theatres with productions ranging from Fringe Comedy to Greek Tradgedy.

Central London/Zone 2

Highbury Barn:

Just steps from the front door, this is one of London’s quaintest “villages” the small parade of shops include Da Mario, a traditional Italian delicatessen, La Fromagerie, Godfrey’s English butchers and Mrs Lovell’s Greengrocers. The Beach Hut fish and chip shop brings a delicious taste of the seaside to central London in a wonderfully stylish setting. There is also a pharmacy/chemist, several cafés, a post office with ATM, supermarket and a traditional British pub serving real ales and good food. There are also a couple of good restaurants, Turkish Iznik and Mediterranean Stingray with several more within a 10 minute walk.

Upper Street:

A tranquil walk through Highbury fields brings you directly to Upper Street, Islington’s vibrant high street. Its lively thoroughfare boasts a wide selection of designer boutiques, great pubs and world class theatre including The Almeida, the King’s Head the only pub in the world with its own opera company and a fantastic selection of real ales in a magnificent traditional London pub. At the bottom of Upper Street the Screen on the Green is a luxuriously refurbished independent cinema. The range of restaurants is wide and international with chic eateries including Ottolenghi and Carluccio’s.

Highbury Fields:

One of London’s most elegant parks which contrasts perfectly with trendy Islington to its south. Georgian terraces line the wide boulevards running the length of the this conservation area, peep into their graceful rooms inhabited by discerning journalists, actors and recently joined by London’s mayor, Boris Johnson. Number 22 was featured in the film Four Weddings and a Funeral. A sociable place popular with joggers, dog walkers, families the park has a children’s play area, several tennis courts, a swimming pool and a very popular café.

"All you need for a comfortable stay!"

A gem of an apartment in a great location. The fact that one of our children told Warren that she was making herself at home when we first arrived says it all! It really is a home from home, great facilities, clean and tidy apartment. Everything you need for a great stay and a bottle of vino too. We'll definitely be back, thank you Ian!

"Good stay"

We came as a family with an 8 year old and a 16 year old . The apartment is comfortable , spacious and well renovated . The neighborhood is quiet . The first metro station is a bit far from the apartment. Warren, who welcomed us was really friendly . I recommend this choice to all those who want to go to London and not far from the center being comfortably installed.

"Très bel appartement, confortable et bien situé."

L'appartement est situé dans une rue très calme avec peu de voitures qui passent. C'est très facile et rapide de rejoindre le centre en bus ou en métro. L'appartement est très confortable, bien décoré et très propre. Les gestionnaires sont très arrangeants en ce qui concerne les horaires d'arrivée et de départ. Bref une très bonne location.

"Great apartment, very helpful owner and manager"

This is a great apartment (stayed with my hubby and 2 teenagers), the directions were fabulous, great communication with the owner and manager and no hassles whatsoever. Its a bit of a trek (10 minutes) to the Tube especially with luggage (Ian tried to warn me though :)) but the neighborhood has everything you need. Would stay here again!

"Perfect stay for London travel."

We arrived after a long flight and were met by Warren at the apartment. He is a lovely, friendly guy who gave us a lot of information on the local area etc. The apartment is well stocked and thoughtfully set out with all you need for a relaxing break.The location is fantastic for London as it is only a 10 min tube ride from the city and then you are in the peaceful retreat of Highbury. The local area is good for all your shopping needs and the park was beautiful on a summer's evening. Ian was always available to communicate with as we prepared for the trip and the wine he left for us in the apartment was amazing! We will definitely return if we can get a booking in the future! Thank you.

"Fantastic Spring Week in London"

My eldest son and I stayed at Fichi in the City in London. It was wonderful-- clean, well appointed, quiet, etc. It was handily close to 2 underground stops. I would recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to London.

"Great apartment, fantastic location, wonderful service."

We loved our stay in Ian's apartment. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, and equipped with everything we needed for a most enjoyable stay. The Highbury location is fantastic - a really nice neighbourhood with restaurants, bars, shops etc and a short 10-15 minute walk to two tube stations. Ian was very friendly and helpful, quick to respond to emails, and Warren his property manager was also a pleasure to deal with. This will definitely be our first choice to stay when we are next back in London.

"a home away from home"

service was excellent, flat was clean, bright & well furnished. located handy to shops and restaurants, bus stop at the bottom of the road, 2 tube stations within 12-15 minutes walk, Arsenal, on the Picadilly line, is a straight run from Heathrow.

Our stay at Fichi in the city, was a wonderful experience ! We three ladies enjoyed all of the marvelous conveniences, and just a short bus ride, on no 19, to Picadilly Circus. A short walk to all that Highbury has to offer, would absolutely return ! Ian, responded very quickly to my e mails... Thanks Ian!

"Great property in convenient location"

Modern apartment with all the mod cons we needed for our stay in London. Washer/dryer and dish washer were great to have and gave us more time to enjoy our holiday. Quality bathroom towels and bed linen. Wifi was fast. Overall, a really homely and comfortable apartment. Quiet street and close to the local high street with good strip of shops, nice pubs etc. only a couple of minutes away. Train station is about 10 mins away and gives fast access to the city, it was excellent. We also caught busses and the overland train too. Highly recommend Fichi in the City.
