Renting an Apartment in London

London is the center of the United Kingdom, and is home to many attractions to visit and things to do. Whether you're just stopping by for a few days or would like to stay longer, consider renting an apartment, house or town home in the area. Many of these come with a barbecue and hot tub, and are pet friendly.

Museums

With London's storied past, you likely won't be surprised to find out that there are well over a dozen museums situated throughout the city. The museums you choose to attend depend primarily on your tastes.

British Museum

The British Museum is one of the oldest museums in the world and houses around eight million priceless objects, including everything from the Rosetta Stone to the Sutton Hoo ship burial. The Discovering the World exhibit is a particular highlight, as it shines light on London in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Science Museum

The Science Museum has seven floors filled to the brim with scientific collections and exhibits. Some of these focus on historical education and medical history, while others choose to highlight contemporary science and technology. This fascinating museum is a must see when visiting London.

Shopping

Shopping is one of the most relaxing ways to pass the time in London. There's so many options to choose from on every street corner in the city, from antique shops to contemporary fashion stores and everything in between.

Oxford Street

Whatever you're shopping for, Oxford Street is the place to be in London, as there are well over 300 shops on this street. For high quality department stores, you can't do better than Debenhams and John Lewis. Topshop and River Island are the go-to destinations for designer fashion.

Notting Hill

While this street is primarily famous because of the film with the same name, it's one of the best shopping streets in all of London. This is the place to shop if you're into rare books, vintage clothing, organic food and antiques. Some of the better shops include Huntsman and Sons and Gieves and Hawkes.

Food and Drinks

When traveling to London, visitors will immediately discover that there are an endless number of upscale restaurants, diners and cafes. No matter what your budget is, there are plenty of delicious restaurants to choose from in the city.

The Ledbury

One of the most luxurious eateries in all of London is The Ledbury. The menu contains a vast array of tasty French dishes, including grilled cuttlefish and Iberico pork. The primary meal consists of four courses. Pair your meal with a sumptuous glass of rose wine or champagne.

Regency Cafe

When in London, the Regency Cafe is your best bet for a full English breakfast and menu. The prices are good and the portions are large. Their main breakfast includes a fried egg, bacon, sausage, baked beans, toast and a choice of coffee or juice.

Weather

London is a fairly comfortable destination all year round. The average highs during the summer months of July and August only reach into the mid 70's, while the average highs during wintertime are slightly below 50. While London is known as a rainy city, most days throughout the year are generally sunny. The best time to visit would be in the spring, as the temperatures are rather mild and the crowds aren't yet at their summer peaks.

How to Get There

The only way to get to London from the United States is by plane, all of which fly to the London Heathrow Airport. Once you're in the city, you can get around in several ways. The most comfortable and luxurious forms of transportation come with a rental car or private car, while public transportation includes buses and the London Tube.

The house is beautiful, spacious, clean, quiet and safe. It is in a great area that is walking distance to everything you could possibly need (shopping and restaurants) during your stay. Only a 5 minute walk to the Putney train station and a short ride to London. Barbara also gave some great recommendations on various buses to take if you prefer those over the train or tube. Highly recommend getting an Oyster card, which we used for the trains, tubes and buses. There are a number of restaurants to enjoy delicious meals. The grocery store is conveniently located about half way between the house and train station, so it's easy to stock up on items to prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen. We called Barbara as soon as we were ready to leave Gatwick and she gave us great directions to get the train, even telling us the correct platform we needed. She met us at the house when we arrived and gave us a very helpful walk-thru of the house and appliances. Highly recommend this property, and would love to stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return to London!

The neighborhood is wonderful - lots of places to eat and shops to buy food and drinks. We began each day at the Paul Rhodes bakery since it's on the way to the Tube stop. Other reviewers have noted the water pressure issues but it was really the only negative. We enjoyed the Netflix on the chilly evenings. (By the way, the heat works great if you stay in the winter!) Benjamin is great - very accommodating. Overall, a wonderful property!
