The South East England 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.

"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.
