The apartment comes equipped with TV, WI FI and all kitchen service accessories, washing machine, dish washer and bedrooms furnished with linens and pillows and a bathroom. Situated in a modern building with day concierge service Limehouse is a touristic area which benefits from all local aminities, transport and riverside entertainment.

This is a spacious airy and cheerful apartment and is situated bang in the midst of the financial and tourist district; bounded by Canary Wharf to the east and the City financial district just West of it. In the midst of cheerful humdrum of city life you also have access to the beauty of riverfront activities- take in the views of yachts and houseboats parked in Limehouse Marina or if you wish to kayak/canoe in the waters or to explore the rich cultural history of the original docklands. You are surrounded by fine dining opportunities and pubs by the riverfront, Canary Wharf shopping arcade for world brands and designer boutiques and a bus ride away to the West end. Ofcourse, you could also easily walk to Canary Wharf via Narrow street along the river front in 15 mins and pop into the free Docklands Musuem enroute.

If walking or cycling is for you then why not hire one of the many Boris bikes outside Limehouse station and bike through the famous Narrow street by the riverfront- A number of historic buildings remain, including The Grapes public house, which was notably bought in 2011 by actor Sir Ian McKellen, director Sean Mathias and Evening Standard (daily newsprint) owner, Evgeny Lebedev. Next to The Grapes is a rare example of an early Georgian brick terrace. Early Georgian houses can be distinguished from late ones in the way that the windows are not set back from the brick frontage. This famous Grapes Pub boasts of being the oldest London pub alongside the Prospect of Whitby further along in Wapping. Take in the picturesque Wapping (site of public state executions in the 17th C) along the way onto the Tower of London via St.Katharine's Dock in 20mins . At the dockside marvel at the gleaming yachts moored and dine at any of the riverside cafeterias and restaurants.

Outside the apartment run Commercial street which links the eastern fringes of London to the West. Numerous buses run connecting Limehouse to areas of Spitafields Market, Petticoat Lane and Whitechapel( scene of the infamous Ripper murders of the 19th C) (10 mins). Buses also run to Liverpool street and Shoreditch (15mins). To the east Limehouse connects to Stratford, home of the 2012 London Olympics. Take bus/train(DLR) to Stratford and view for yourself how London managed the games and thereafter. Stratford is also home to the one of Europe's largest shopping centres- Westfield.

Limehouse is a vibrant multi-cultural/lingual Borough of London. As such it is no surprising that the mile area is rich in the tapestry of fine and affordable international cuisines. Dining out is definitely a favourite past time of the busy Londoner and we encourage you to savor some of the most delightful cuisines from the Asian sub continent to European fine dining. The area is rich in restaurants and fast food/takeaway outlets and you will be spoilt for choice. Old Spitalfields Market near Aldgate (10 mins by bus) is known for attracting huge crowds with the maximum people attending the market on the Sunday. Not just about big names in the designing and fashion industry the site also hosts the largest international food court in east London.

By car/taxi, the Limehouse Link helps to whisk you seamlessly from central London to Canary Wharf, but if you prefer to take a more scenic route, climb aboard the River Bus at Canary Wharf Pier on Narrow Street to visit historic Greenwich or Tower Bridge, the ever revolving London Eye or further up river, the buzzing Chelsea Harbour. London City Airport is 20 minutes away by DLR.

You are also 5-7 mins walk to local shops(Tesco, Sainsburys, Post office ), 10mins on bus/train/cab to Whitechapel Hospital.This Borough also has the highest proportion of skyscrapers and tall structural buildings in London. Your building complex also houses City Car club where you can hire cars. City Car Club has a large fleet of cars and vans spread in dense networks across an ever-increasing number of UK cities .The City Cars and Vans are parked in their own designated bays within the complex and can be reserved for as little as half an hour, a day, or as long as needed.
