Just across the street from the Tower of London & next to beautiful Trinity Square Gardens. Just 1 min. walk from Tower Hill tube stop & 3 min. from Tower Gateway DLR, you'll find this flat the ideal base from which to explore London! Many points of historic interest are nearby, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, & London Bridge. Located in 'The City' or financial district, the area is very safe, even for walking around late at night.
Due to flat's proximity to the tube station, you can hop on & quickly be near any major attraction in central London: Buckingham Palace, Churchill's War Rooms, Whitehall, Parliament, Big Ben, Kensington Palace. Also nearby (meaning under 15 min. walk) is St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, London Bridge, St Katherine's Dock, Shad Thames (riverwalk area with more restaurants/pubs/shops), Sir Francis Drake's ship, Shakespeare's Globe Theater, Tate Museum, etc.
Amenities & Rental Policy: Inside the flat:
This flat is equipped with a microwave, oven and stove, fridge and freezer, coffee maker, clothing washer and dryer, TV and DVD player, DVD library (40-50 movies), CD/tape player/radio, CD music library (eclectic mix from classical to country music to classic rock to Glenn Miller to opera to jazz to R&B), small book library (about 40 books), and wireless DSL. The flat rental includes all linens, towels, and cutlery. The flat rental includes all linens, towels, and cutlery. Also included are free phone calls from the flat to the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe, so you can call your family and friends at home, or make additional travel plans for free from the flat.
A four night minimum is usually held to, unless I there happens to be 2-3 nights of availability between other guests with longer stays.
This is a strictly non-smoking apartment.
Sleeping arrangements: Sleeping Arrangements:
This is a one bedroom flat and is perfect for a single or couple, but can also accommodate a small family, if necessary, for a maximum occupancy of five persons. There is a UK Double bed upstairs (similar in size to a US Queen) (see photos). Downstairs there is a very large, comfy sofa which is six foot two inches between armrests and which makes up nicely into a twin/single bed if desired to accommodate one person (there is no pullout bed in this sofa). Two more persons can be accommodated on a $400 queen size “Aero-Bed” (an expensive type of air mattress). (I need to emphasize that, at 500 square feet, the most the flat can accommodate is a small family of up to five persons - it is simply too small to be used to a group of five adults.)

It contains dozens of photos of the flat and virtually everything within walking distance, so you can get a real feel for the flat and its exact location. The site also contains much information on everything from local restaurants, pubs and shops, to local historic sites, to weather, to relevant maps (London Underground and local grocery stores, for instance) and location information, etc.
There are many pubs & restaurants within a 1-2 minute walk. The Hung, Drawn & Quartered pub is just across Great Tower Street next to All Hallows (church). There are 3 other pubs, a French restaurant, a Spanish restaurant, an Asian noodle place, a pizza/pasta place & a Subway sandwich shop all within a 1-2 minute walk. If you're willing to walk a bit further, you will find a seemingly endless supply of restaurants.
One not to miss is Dickens Inn (a former hanging ground for pirates) at St Katherine's Docks! The docks also host a small marina and many quaint cafes, shops & restaurants of all price ranges.
If you choose to walk east about 10-15 minutes, you'll find yourself in London's East End, & perhaps at Brick Lane which is famous for its excellent Indian food! I highly recommend the Jack the Ripper Walking Tour of the East End, held at night & starting from the Tower Hill tube, just about a minute (if that) from the flat.
