The South East England region

London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom, the largest metropolitan area in the United Kingdom and the largest urban zone in the European Union by most measures. London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who called it Londinium.

London's ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its square-mile medieval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century, the name London has also referred to the metropolis developed around this core. The bulk of this conurbation forms the London region and the Greater London administrative area, governed by the elected Mayor of London and the London Assembly.

London is a leading international city, with ,many strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It is the world's largest financial centre alongside New York, has the largest city GDP in Europe and is home to the headquarters of more than 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies. It is the most visited city in the world. London's five international airports make its airspace the busiest of any urban centre worldwide and London Heathrow is the world's busiest airport by number of international passengers. London's 43 universities form the largest concentration of higher education in Europe. In 2012 London will become the first city to host the Summer Olympics three times.

London has a diverse range of peoples, cultures and religions, and more than 300 languages are spoken within the city. In July 2007 it had an official population of 7,556,900 within the boundaries of Greater London, making it the most populous municipality in the European Union. The Greater London Urban Area is the second largest in the EU with a population of 8,278,251, while London's metropolitan area is the largest in the EU with an estimated total population of between 12 million and 14 million.

London contains four World Heritage Sites: the Tower of London; the Royal Botanic Gardens and Kew; the site comprising the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey and St. Margaret's Church; and the historic settlement of Greenwich (in which the Royal Observatory marks the Greenwich Meridian (0° longitude) and GMT). Other famous landmarks include Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, 30 St Mary Axe (The Gherkin), St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and Trafalgar Square. London is home to numerous museums, galleries, libraries, sporting events and other cultural institutions including the British Museum, National Gallery, British Library, Wimbledon and 40 theatres. London's Chinatown is the largest in Europe. The London Underground network is the oldest underground railway network in the world and the most extensive after the Shanghai Metro

South East London

Catford is a busy shopping district in south-east London, recently regenerated. It is named after the wildcats believed to have roamed the land in ancient times, and the enormous, sculpted figure of a cat peers down from the sign above Catford Centre, a small shopping mall. The cat is one of the area's most unusual landmarks, the other being an Oliver Barratt sculpture called The Water Line, a mass of twisty blue steel pipes located outside Eros House. More traditional is the Grade II-listed Broadway Theatre, with its green spire and exceptional art-deco interior. The Broadway presents music, drama and entertainment in its two theatres, with local and international performers, and incorporates a cinema. It also hosts CAMRA's annual Catford Beer Festival. The theatre is situated close to the main shopping area, Catford Broadway, where a popular market is open four days a week. A second market is housed indoors at the shopping centre. There are many sporting opportunities in Catford, especially at Ladywell Arena and Ladywell Fields. Mountsfield Park, with its sweeping views over London, also offers pitches and courts as well as ornamental gardens and a bandstand, and it hosts the annual Lewisham People's Day festival.

"lovely warm and welcoming!"

We stayed for two weeks, the perfect place to retreat to after a long day. Mrs.D was welcoming and always willing to help. Great home would defiantly come back!

"Great accomodation, but one hell of a walk"

Mrs D was very accomidating and the location is very close to the train to get into Dowtown London, but it is located at the top of a hill which is a bit of a challenge if you're out of shape. Also while this is described as a B&B you have to provide your own food. Towels are supplied but better to bring your own as we weren't informed before hand. Rooms are small, but clean and a great deal for staying outside of town.

"Comfortable, affordable apartment close to the city"

Thank you for a great stay, we really enjoyed ourselves. We have never stayed at a host family before and was worried if we had made the right choice. But we had such a pleasant stay, much better than a hotel. We were given great tips on local places to visit and great places to visit during our stay which we really enjoyed as these places were not mentioned in the local guide. We were collected from the airport which was also wonderful. The food was great, and we really enjoyed our talks at the dinner table. This has been a succesul trip, only complaint is that our trip ended so quickly. Thanks again for everything Mrs Depass you are very kind. Hope to visit again one day we will take away fond memories of our trip to London.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your lovely review, we are happy to hear you had such a lovely stay with us, it was lovely having you. We hope one day when to see you again. Good luck with your interior design business.

"Magnicent experience"

What can I say what a wonderful experience to our visit to London. We had a very pleasant stay at Parkview apartments. The room was very comfortable and as described. The views were great and the park adjacent to the property was lovely for walks. The train station is a very short walk and we were able to visit London by train and get back home easily. The host and family were very helpful and catered to our needs entirely. We shall definetly be returning next year. Thanks again.

"Clean, comfy and cheap"

We are an older couple and spent two weeks with Sandra and her family. The accommodation is extremely clean and cosy and we were made very welcome. It is not an apartment and we did share with another couple for a few nights which we were not expecting, so be prepared that it is only a bedroom where one must eat, relax and sleep. The kitchen very small with basic facilities, but enough to make tea and toast and there is a microwave.The photographs are a little misleading....as stated in other reviews....however the position is fabulous ( 15 mins walk to train and 15 mins to Central London ) the view from our bedroom window lovely and the host extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you very much Sandra for our stay and for dropping us at the train station.

Dear Guest
Thank you taking the time to leave your review and some kind comments. We are pleased you found the location and views so fabulous, we are so lucky to have 2 train stations in Catford next door to each other that run a regular service into Central London. We do pride ourselves on hygiene and feel it important to keep everything cleaned daily for you. With regards to your comments that you had to share for a few nights which you was not expecting has somewhat surprised me. I have since written to you asking you to check the history of our written conversations, whereby I had advised you that the apartment has 2 bedrooms and holds 5 people, and as you are a couple you would only be occupying 1 room, the other room would be let. You responded that this would be fine, and reserved. Obviously larger groups occupy both rooms and only share with their group. Evidently, when the other room became vacant, you approached me one evening explaining that your daughter had experienced difficulties at her student accommodation and would it be OK for her to stay over. In hindsight, I should have kept the situation professional and charged for those nights, but I decided to relax the rules and allow you daughter to stay FREE of charge. However, I felt blessed to have been able to help out in the difficult circumstances without applying further pressure (It was Christmas and Christmas is for giving). The kitchenette is as described, it is not a fully equipped kitchen, and it is used for preparing breakfast and light meals and is fully functional for many who's purpose is to use the apartment as a base before hitting the sights of London, it is not in our interest to deceive anyone. We provide hot cooked meals for many of our guests upon request, and this has been highlighted in reviews about our delicious meals we provided and enjoyed, whilst in the Lounge at the dinner table. Lastly, it was a pleasure having you stay with us, your husband is a true comedian and should have his own TV show. Giving you a lift to the train station was our final gesture and you are welcome!!. We wish you all the best, and hope to see you again maybe one day.

Dear Guest
Thank you very much for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure hosting you both. You have been voted as one of the nicest guests we have had stay with us, the pleasure was ours. Apologise about the hot water, the plumber has now been in to repair what was a faulty pressure switch, thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We are happy you had such a great time here, you having great memories of London/us leaves us with a sense of pride in that we have done a job well done. We look forward to you coming again with more friends next year as discussed. Take good care and thank you for the California fridge magnet and chocolates.
