Welcome to the Tower Bridge, our beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom rental located in an historic warehouse in Rotherhithe sitting right on the south bank of the River Thames. This 990-square-foot architect-designed apartment has lovely original features, such as exposed brick walls and timber beams, accented by a contemporary décor. The Tower Bridge features a comfortable living and dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room and master bedroom have gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows with sweeping views of the Thames and London landmarks, including a view of the iconic Tower Bridge! The master bedroom has a luxurious king size bed and en suite bathroom, while the second bedroom contains two twin-sized beds with handy feature of two additional trundle beds underneath. Another full size bathroom is located nearby in the hallway. The living room has a TV and stereo with iPod docking station, and at night one sofa in the living room pulls out as a queen size bed.
This stylish apartment takes it name from its gorgeous views of the famous Tower Bridge, which you can enjoy day and night from the large windows in the living room and master bedroom. You'll also be near the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral and the infamous Whitechapel neighborhood where Jack the Ripper once roamed. This is where the famous cockney slang was invented (where phrases like 'dog and bone' means a 'phone'). Visit the Bermondsey antiques market nearby, a must-see in London, or enjoy a stroll along the Thames. The Canada Water stop on the Tube's Jubilee Line is a short walk away and will take you to quickly to Tower Bridge, Tate Modern, Westminster Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and fabulous shopping around Bond Street. Just head the other direction on the Jubilee to visit Canary Wharf in the Docklands. Or simply hop on the London Overground stop nearby to connect to the District Line on the Tube in Whitechapel for easy access to all central London sites.
Rotherhithe is a quiet residential area steeped in London history, where merchant ships docked in the heyday of the English Empire and where the Mayflower embarked for its famous voyage to America in 1620 just steps from the apartment. Today the characteristic old warehouses have been transformed to designer apartments, surrounded by supermarkets, excellent restaurants, cafés and boutiques.
