Our Southbank garden apartment, in the new heart of London, is 100 yards from The Thames behind The OXO Tower between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.

Our apartment is on the first and second floors of a small, modern block of 16 apartments. The first floor comprises of a living room and full kitchen. There are patio doors onto a beautiful, planted deck with a table and chairs for al fresco dining. There is also a double bedroom and shower room on this floor. There is also a a third bedroom with bunk beds suitable for two children or one adult.. On the second floor is an en suite master bedroom overlooking the garden deck. There is an elevator.

We are very close to the cultural heart of London including The National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and The London Eye. There are lots of places nearby to eat and drink to cover all tastes and budgets.

Location: We are ten minutes from two tube stops (Waterloo and Blackfriars), which have 5 lines between them as well as British Rail services. For the most picturesque walk along The River, we use Embankment Station, which takes 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many photos you take!

Eating: We have plenty of places nearby to eat including two very good restaurants in The OXO Tower, which have great views. There are lots of less expensive restaurants within a short distance, many overlooking The River, and a couple of pubs on The River that serve food and drink throughout the day.It truly is the best location in London!

About David and Julia Batchelor-Walsh

David and Julia have always loved the culture of London's South Bank and when the opportunity arose to purchase an apartment they couldn't believe their luck.

They have a seven years' old son, Sebastian.

Julia is a professional, classical singer having trained at The Royal College of Music. Since the birth of Sebastian she has been a full time Mum fitting in the occasional concert.

David is a full time Dad and says it's the best thing he has ever done!

David and Julia Batchelor-Walsh purchased this apartment in 2005

Why David and Julia Batchelor-Walsh chose South Bank & Southwark

The South Bank is the vibrant cultural centre of London. Our apartment is near Tate Modern, the world's most visited modern art gallery and a host of other attractions including The Globe Theatre, St Paul's Cathedral, The National Theatre, The National Film Theatre, Hayward Gallery, The Royal Festival Hall, London Eye etc etc.

We are within walking distance of theatreland and Covent Garden and there are lots and lots of places to eat and drink to suit all tastes and budgets.

Public transport is fabulous particularly the RV1 bus which stops outside our apartment block and runs, mainly along The River, from Tower Hill to Covent Garden via Waterloo. It is a very frequent service. Taxis are abundant.

What makes this apartment unique

Garden apartment in the middle of London close to many of London's major tourist and cultural attractions and a short walk from The Thames.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear David,



I would like to tell you that we 4 really enjoyed our holidays in London.



Your flat is great. Thank you for all the breakfast-things in the refrigiator.



Even the weather was fantastic !!! So we had a wonderful view from the London Eye.



If we decide to come back to London your flat will be the first choice for us!!!



Best wishes

Superbly located London apartment

  • 5 of 5
Superbly located apartment a stone's throw from the London Eye, with many of London's top attractions within walking distance. We never had to travel more than 6 tube stops to go anywhere that we wanted to go, including the O2, which we went to via a sunny boat trip on a Thames Clipper, and returned via the underground.

We were there on a sunny week, and the patio garden was greatly appreciated, as was the piano, which our 12 year old son loved.

There are lots of good local restaurants within 10 minutes, and Borough Market on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is fabulous for picnic fodder, fruit, cheese and mouthwatering cakes.

Apartment is well equipped and clean, with everything that we needed for our week's stay. Welcome groceries were much appreciated.

We will definitely book this again for our next trip to London.

great rental!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in London for a short visit with family. The flat was perfect for the four of us to gather there for meals and visiting. The property was exactly as described. The owner was very accessible and accommodating.
The location was great - within walking distance of the Thames, pubs, subways - great connections, or if you prefer to walk, it isn't too far to museums etc. The walkway along the Thames is lovely, too especially at night. If you are there on a Saturday morning, it is worth the trip to go to the Borough market. I definitely would recommend the property.

Comfy and warm place to come back to every day

  • 4 of 5
This was my maiden stay on HomeAway as I already frequent a large number of sites. However none of them pointed out this place to me and the description interested me as I was trying to find a comfy place to stay for my family of 6.

The owner, David, was very welcoming and eased us into the apartment effortlessly. We were given an informative briefing and instruction manuals around the place answered questions we didn't think about earlier.

Access to the place was good and the tube station is a scant 10min walk away. Coming back at night was also economical as the place is centrally located in London and taxi fares will not cost much.

The surrounding neighbourhood was quiet which contributed greatly to our rest nightly. There was a patio which we didn't use (on account of it being winter) which would be great during summer I imagine.

The only grouse I have is that the hot water boiler is inadequate for 6 persons bathing one after another and we had to split bathing times into night and morning sessions.

Overall my family and I enjoyed our stay tremendously and would not hesitate to come back again when in London.

Great family apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5
This is a great 3 bedroom apartment that seems like a home as soon as you walk in.
We had managed to get our 3 adult children together for a family xmas/new year holiday.
After Xmas in Paris we moved on to London & spent 5 nights in David & Julia's apartment over new year. Thanks to David's advice when we booked the apartment we had tickets to the New Years fire works which was only minutes walk from the apartment.
The apartment was perfect for the 5 of us. Roomy well appointed a much appreciated welcome back & a garden deck which would be great if not the middle of winter.
Great pubs, restaurants & attractions in easy walking distance.
Would stay in this apartment again any time & have recommended to friends on our return to Australia.

Wonderful flat!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 came to London for a special family event at the National Gallery. This flat was much more than we expected. The location was so convenient - very close to Waterloo and walking distance to Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Eye and some pretty awesome pubs too!

The flat was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a little too cool to enjoy the wonderful outdoor patio - maybe on our next visit! If we return, and I surely hope we do, we would love to stay here again.

Thank you so much!
