Major tourist attractions on your doorstep. A short walk to everything but stepping into the square is like another world period houses and calm.
The apartments are in one of the best locations for sightseeing in London. An easy walk from museums, art galleries, major sights, etc and yet when you turn the corner into the square its like stepping back in time with large white stucco houses, the mews houses at the back which used to be stables housing horses . You can imagine the carriages going around the square, especially first thing in the morning when you often hear the horses of the household cavalry go past.
You can imagine Winston Churchill, who lived a few doors away, walking in the garden puffing on his cigar. Just across in Belgravia you can see the house where film star Vivian Leigh lived and the street where Lady Thatcher still lives and where several heads of state from around the world had their homes. Walk ten minutes from the apartments and you can watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.
The queen's gallery is five minutes from the apartment and the mews where you can see her horses.
