You could visit Stonehenge on a day trip as well as drives or train rides to Windsor or Bath, Stratford-on-Avon is within easy reach, as is Warwick castle. If you are a gardener there are beautiful gardens available to the public everywhere in the area outside the city and since rivers abound, there are scenic routes to walk or hike or just drive to everywhere.
The glories of the city of light, Paris, are only 2 hours and 20 minutes away on the Eurostar from the newly remodelled St. Pancras station which is a wonderful sight all by itself. St. Pancras is only a 20 minute tube ride from the property,

"So quiet and yet so central"
This lovely rooftop apartment is in a very quiet street beside Lords cricket ground (just north of the Central Line) with easy access by bus and tube to Bond Street and Knightsbridge as well as St Pancras Station. All the equipment is in exceptionally good condition, like a top hotel, and the kitchen is well equipped which is very rare in furnished rentals. We loved staying here and would highly recommend it.
