About The Owner

We have been renting this property for over twenty years and have visitors from the, USA, Canada, South America, Russia, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand etc many of them have returned over the years.

Why The Owner chose City of London

We liked the very central and quiet location next to the Tower of London and it's the perfect place to see the best London has to offer. Since we have been here it has got even better ,with more shops and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Terry,

Thank you so much for the hospitality you have shown us. Your flat was perfect for us.

We were able to explore London extensively and have a great comfortable 'home' to return to each evening.

London is wonderful, we will never forget our visit, hope to return soon.

Best wishes,

Dan and Susan

Great apartment, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this apartment is a hop away from a supermarket, a skip away from St Katherine Dock and a jump away from the iconic Tower of London, The Tower bridge and the metro station.

The apartment is very well appointed with every thing to make your stay a joy. The bed is extremely comfortable, and after four weeks in a campervan was a pure joy haha.

The public transport system in London is fantastic and easy to use and with both the metro and bus stop ( bus number 15 ) only 10minutes easy walk away sight seeing to London was a breeze.

Terry met us at the apartment gates and was a gracious and helpful host.

We went for evening strolls down and across the Tower Bridge and never felt worried or uncomfortable. The area felt safe at all times.

So if you are looking for an apartment that's not exactly in the centre of London but only a hop, skip and jump away, I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.

I hope to return again to London and will defiantly stay here again.

Thanks for making our "trip of a life time" end with a bang.

You Can't Go Wrong Here

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little flat in a very convenient part of town. It has everything you need, and is bang in the middle of the Tower of London area. The Tower Hill tube station is an 8 minute walk through the pretty marina at St. Katherine's Dock - where there are several water-side restaurants and views of The Tower. Get a travel pass or Oyster card for the length of your stay, and you'll have access to all of London - and beyond. Terry is a lovely man, and corresponded with us many times, prior to our stay, during, and after. The flat is comfortable with every amenity you could ask for. The wi-fi is completely reliable. The neighborhood is gated, very safe, and quiet - off the main road. A large grocery store and a couple of restaurants are literally right across the street. We enjoyed every second of our stay. Thank you, Terry!

Great stay! Ros & Chris Australia

This is a very comfortable and quiet apartment only a short walk or bus ride from the nearest underground station, Tower Hill.

The owners have maintained & decorated the property to a very high standard and provided all facilities you could need during your stay... including a very thoughtful 'Welcome Pack', fresh flowers and a bottle of wine! There is also a large supermarket nearby for all your groceries and it’s coffee shop is great to relax in on your return from sightseeing.

We happily recommend this apartment and are returning this year! Thankyou for a most enjoyable stay.

Fabulous Flat!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation! My mom and I took a girls trip to London and rented this flat from Terry. It was perfect location to get to several key attractions (Tower Bridge, Tower of London, etc), surrounded by wonderful places to eat and drink, and very convenient to get to the underground. We felt very safe and it was very quiet at night. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone interested in visiting London!
