In the lounge area there is also a 50 inch LCD..DVD and Stereo. The property is fully heated by gas. Internet is available at the Deli Cafe nearly next door. We own an estate in France and are undertaking to offset our emissions in London by planting woodland and hedges there. The property is not suitable for very young children.. though we feel you must exercise your own discretion. The spiral stairs are open and high, the gallery equally so. The roof terrace is on the roof with a balustrade.. but all these things must be treated with caution where young people are concerned.
There is a local law banning any cooking outside on the roof..absolutely no BBQ's. If you plan to have any parties or use the accommodation for any event what-so ever where the number of people in the property will exceed 12 (including those staying at the property). You must first clear it with us in writing.

A sports centre is just along the river 'The Waterfront' but most people find walking around London exercise enough. Entry to the smaller on-site gym can be arranged.

Cars in London.. it can be hard work to drive into the centre of London.. the Congestion Charge..£8 per day.. finding parking, the cost and the fines..if you get one can become very expensive..and if they tow your car.
Motorcycles in London.. Using Motorcycles & Cycles to get around London ourselves..we think its normal.. but for those that are not City Bikers..it can be lively. Nothing quite like fifty bikes leaving the traffic lights at the same time... There is parking provision for Bikes in London.. but the explosion in their use means the parking capacity has not yet caught up..
It is much less Hectic at weekends.. We generally think it's worth doing.. but you must always Lock it.. We can supply extra locks/chain.
Brighton is a nice day out from London on a Bike..
Cyclists can take their bikes on the Boat up to Westminster.. but they may change this. We have made further enquiries and will update their position. We are also looking at supplying bikes at the house..
The Tour de France went past the end of the road..quickly.
