Further details indoors

Floors mostly parquet, carpet on stairs and landing, lino in wet rooms. Low exposure for allergy sufferers.

Do not bring your car. You will spend more in parking (fines, central London congestion charging etc) than you spend on the accommodation. Hire a "Boris bike" from the rack across the street (others also available nearby) which operate with your credit card and are a convenient means of transport in this relatively flat part of London.

Further details outdoors

Leafy area but some traffic noise with the windows open. Many parks, some small and hidden away within easy child walking distance, even a city farm for those who think chicken nuggets grow on trees.

Excellent public transport and tourist attractions in walking distance. Varied selection of local restaurants and bars.

Further details

Normal minimum stay five nights, maximum stay one month. Shorter stays possible if there is a gap between two bookings (last minute) with extra payment for services.

Access by electronic key and severe penalties exacted if you do not return the gadget.

The London region

London, once the capital of a great empire, is now a tranquil backwater of Europe. Yet it retains the grandeur of its past and most of the loot, including the Elgin Marbles, Cleopatra's Needle, many old master paintings, etc. Guided tours round the museums, Houses of Parliament and cathedrals can be booked. Shopping opportunities are extensive and the City specialises in supplying financial services cheaply to visitors and expensively to voters. Public transport varies between the efficient and uncomfortable (the tube) and the inefficient but delightful (the river buses). A tradition of openness (immigrants include Normans, van Dyke, Huguenots, Karl Marx, more modern terrorists, economic and political exiles of all stripes) means that the choice of eating or culture is almost limitless. Waiters in restaurants are trained to respond to customers needs, in pubs the tradition is to go to the bar and pay on delivery. All human life is here, the saying goes. In statistical terms it's less than 1%, but the error is forgiveable.

Central London/Zone 1

Spring Gardens was once the pleasure grounds of central London. It has since been extensively built on. Then it was extensively bombed and redeveloped by the London County Council. Much that is good and interesting remains, including many small parks with facilities for children. Using a good map and avoiding main roads you will come across these on your way from more famous landmarks.

Imperial War Museum

Oval cricket ground

Nice clean apartment over the road from a great pub. Very central to city and very easy access to trains and tube. Suited our purposes down to the ground. all the necessary equipment was there.

"Extremely good location - delicious 25 minutes walk to Westminster Abbey along the Thames"

The location of the flat is very convenient. You can walk to the Houses of Parliament along the Thames. It takes only 25 minutes if you decide (big mistake!) not to enter the Tate Britain in your way to Westminster. Or you can get to Vauxhall underground/train station in just 10 minutes, to start there your exploration of London - as this station is in zone 1, you can get to most attractions in the town at a relatively cheap fare. There is a Tesko store a few steps from the apartment, where you can find all you need (food, press, etc.). The flat is comfortable and clean. Decoration is not luxurious but you get all that you need. Note that one of the bedrooms is single, while other accommodates three (one double bed plus one single). The kitchen has all necessary things, including washing-machine, dishwasher, microwave oven, etc. You have to climb a few stairs (not many) to get to the apartment - no lift. There is a nice pub at the other side of the road. The area is safe and quiet: no problems of any sort during the riots of 6-8 August, which coincided with our visit to London. All in all, a very convenient place to use as a base for visiting London.
