NOW SOLD OUT THROUGH SEPTEMBER 8 !!
We're in London's historic Gibson Square, which is an oasis of calm just off of Islington's lively Upper Street, where you'll find literally dozens of upscale bars, restaurants and shops. Our neighbourhood is friendly, safe and immaculate, making the flat a perfect fit for a woman traveling alone, for a professional here on assignment working late hours -- for anyone, in fact, who appreciates a civilized lifestyle. We're convenient to public transport running quickly to all the sights and tourist attractions you'll want to visit in this great city. The flat is on the first floor of a Regency terraced town house (2nd floor American). Travel back in time with us -- all sides of the Square, and the park inside it, look just as they did when George III was busy losing the Colonies. This quiet, elegant, comfortable holiday rental flat features very high ceilings, cornice mouldings, and a brand new first-class renovation. The fully-equipped kitchen is a dream!
Sky TV & WiFi. Sleeps just 2.
Those Wonderful Double-Decker Buses: Several key buses stop just three minutes from the house, giving convenient scenic access to all the museums, tourist sights, markets and historic neighbourhoods you'll want to see on your vacation, cheaper and often quicker than the tube. Unlike in most cities, here the bus is your friend, with its dedicated express lanes and incredibly low cost -- just £1.30 with the Oyster Card you'll get the day you arrive! Take the splendid double-decker #4 red bus to Sadlers Wells, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Fleet Street, Oxford Street shopping, Covent Garden and the West End theatres, and finally Waterloo Bridge across the River Thames to the South Bank (National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, British Film Institute, Hayward Gallery, the London Eye), Imax, Waterloo Station, and the Old Vic. (All that in barely half an hour’s ride!) Other buses from this neighbourhood have similarly-stunning itineraries
The Tube, and the Rail System: It's just a 7-minute walk to the Angel Islington tube station (Northern Line, Zone 1) for quick connections throughout London – just 1 stop to the King's Cross / St Pancras transport hub for further tube connections, the Eurostar to Paris, and mainline trains to Scotland, the North of England, and Gatwick and Luton Airports. And yes, King's Cross does have a brick wall bearing the sign 'Platform 9 3/4'. It's a 10-minute walk to the Highbury & Islington tube station (Victoria Line) connecting to the Stansted (Airport) Express, and looping through Central London to Victoria Station with connections to all lines. Arsenal's Emirates football stadium is at Highbury, as are National Rail's overground North London and Northern City Lines. Canary Wharf, the Financial District and the 2012
The Olympics venues are quickly accessed from here. Heathrow Airport, by the way, is best accessed by the 15-minute Heathrow Express train, which you get from Paddington Station, less than 20 minutes away.
