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.

                                                                                                    I was a bit wary booking this flat, since it only had one review from a few years ago. It was wonderful and I hope this review helps the next renter. We stayed here for about 9 days over New Years. There were 2 adults and 3 young adults/teenagers and it was very comfortable. British shabby-chic charm everywhere, good wifi, very nice kitchen (although we never found the microwave.) The bathroom situation was better than anticipated...we had assumed there was only one toilet--not ideal for 5 adults--but there were two. There is a powder room with a toilet and small sink, a full bath with toilet, sink and tub-shower combo, and then the extra shower and sink in the little bedroom. That little bedroom is VERY charming with a cozy built in bed. It was definitely fought over, although the winner had to put up with others wanting into the bedroom to use the shower. The master bedroom is spacious with a bay window overlooking the garden. The location of the flat is great, although the VRBO map has it mis-marked...it's actually on the corner of Tregunter and Redcliffe Gardens. There are two areas with pubs, bakeries and restaurants nearby...to the north is the Earls Court area with the tube station and to the south the Fulham Road area. The kids spent New Years eve in The Blackbird pub in Earls Court and had a wonderful time. We also had Sunday Roast at the Kings Arms on Fulham road on a rainy foggy New Years day...delish, then retired for the evening to the flat to watch the new episode of Sherlock. It was a wonderful British fantasy. We definitely recommend the Rosso Pomodoro on Fulham for outstanding neopolitan pizza and pasta. The Earls Court tube station is ideal for getting to all the touring destinations, but if you have 5 adults, a cab can be even more economical. This is a great flat in a great area...one of the best London experiences we have had.

The location is very easy access to the tube station. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have good showers. The dining/kitchen area is good for people to gather and socialize. Be prepared to go up several flights of stairs but the carpeted stairs are easy to climb. There are several good restaurants near by as well as convenient grocery shopping. The kitchen is well equipped and the balcony would be lovely in warmer weather! We would definitely stay here again.

Quaint neighborhood with plenty of everything in walking distance. Train to London is a few blocks down the road as is the stadium. Owners are wonderful and keep a warm, charming home. Felt more like we were visiting family than in an AirBnB. Game day was so impressive and the Brits can definitely give us Americans a run for our money on tailgating. Just a perfect experience all around!!!
