Nestled between the two financial districts (City of London and Canary Wharf) on the North side of the Thames River, my City of London apartment offers the best of both worlds – close proximity to the action but without all the noise that’s usually associated with city centre living! It is situated on a quiet side street which doesn’t really get much noise.
Having recently had a major update, this lovely two bedroom City of London apartment is close to everything you’ll need to make it your base in the city.
The property has wooden floors throughout and has a homely and contemporary feel. It is light and spacious and is able to cater for up to six people. There is a comfortable double bed in each room. However, if you have more than 4 people in your group, you can also take advantage of the double sofa bed in the living area.
Available for your use is a TV, and DVD player, as well as a number of books, guides and other useful information to make your stay in the city as enjoyable as possible. WIFI internet is also provided for your use.
Within a 15 minute walking radius you will find possibly the most famous of all London attractions, Tower Bridge (breathtaking up close), as well as the Tower of London (centuries of history), the award-winning Whitechapel Gallery which has just undergone a multi £££ makeover (founded 1901), Spitalfields (markets), Brick Lane (curry houses), St Katherine Docks (marina, restaurants) and dozens of restaurants, fast food outlets, bars, shops and parks. The two large supermarkets, both of which are about a 4 minute walk away.
Situated in a very historic old part of London, the apartment is within a 5 minute walk to the local tube (subway/underground/metro) station – Whitechapel, on the East London (Orange), District (Green) and the Hammersmith and City (Pink) lines and the nearest DLR station is Shadwell, approx a 6 minute walk, with direct links to the Olympic site as well as Bank (city of London), Tower Gateway (Tower Bridge & the Tower of London) and Canary wharf. Whitechapel will also be part of the anticipated Crossrail route with direct access to Heathrow airport once the works have been completed.
There are also lots of bus connections going into the City of London (if you don’t want to walk the 20 minutes it takes), as well as buses to take you to Fleet Street, Oxford Street and beyond. Canary Wharf is also conveniently accessed either by DLR (overground train) or the bus, or a 30 minute walk along the riverfront. And if you really want to live like a local, there is always the option of hiring one of the thousands of blue (‘Boris’) bikes available in the city centre.
I am a keen conservationist (after all, I grew up in a country that restricts water usage almost all year round due to a lack of rainfall!) and recycle wherever possible, including buying recycled products even though they cost a little more. However, rest assured I don't like to compromise on quality and am a bit of a clean-freak, so I can guarantee you’ll be staying in a lovely clean, well-maintained apartment. After all, I wouldn’t expect anyone to stay somewhere I wasn’t happy to stay myself!
I also limit the use of chemicals used by the housekeepers in the apartment. As a dust allergy sufferer myself, I ensure that the property is always spotlessly clean although being right in the centre of London is not always conducive to a totally dust-free environment!
Being an Aussie and growing up around water, it was always important to me to be near water in London too. And as a runner, what better location to live in than somewhere close to the Thames for a morning jog?! Also with the hip and trendy East End being the new West End, there are a host of bars and restaurants, as well as museums and great markets to keep busy with.
Situated on a small street, the apartment is so close to many bustling areas & touristy spots, and is also in an area that's become the new 'West End' - it's now a thriving, artistic centre with millions of pounds being poured into it every year. Unlike many of the more modern buildings being built now, the apartment has lovely high ceilings & sash windows, and this gives the place a bit of character!
