Fantastic Central Location Close To London's Southbank Area
Why Julie Robson chose London Borough of Southwark
THE AREA We love the central location and the fact we have so many of London's great sights and areas on our doorstep including the prestigious Old Vic & Young Vic Theatres. We can walk to a great variety of places inc. Southbank, Borough Market, Covent Garden, St James Park etc. There are also a multitude of restaurants, bars, theatres, galleries etc close by. We have left a guide in the apt with some of our favourite restaurants, places…….

We felt at home in a city we had never visited!
How wonderful it was to feel at home in a city we had not visited before. Julie and Dennis’s flat was just the place to end a day of exploring the wonderful city of London. They provided a book of helpful lists which made navigating from the flat to other parts of London a breeze and it was a nice touch for their guests. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos provided on the website, it was cozy and modern, it fit the needs of our trip perfectly. It was lovely to have breakfast at ‘home’ before we planned our day, and before heading out to explore the city.
The neighborhood of Southwark was easy to navigate, quiet for a central London location, and was close to many amenities. Local groceries stores, coffee shops and culture stops made this an ideal location (home base) to launch our adventure each day. Two subway lines were equal distance from the flat. We walked to many London attractions, and most were only a short subway ride away.
We would highly recommend this listing, and we would book this listing as our first choice for our next visit to London - if available!
Thanks for your lovely review. Happy you enjoyed your stay and the city. Thank you for looking after the place so well. x

Turn right out of entrance, turn left on Black friars Road and you will see Southwark station straight ahead. (we favour using Southwark station as it is much less crowded than Waterloo with shorter platform walks)

Turn left out of entrance, continue to the top of Webber Street. When you reach the Old Vic Theatre you will see the entrance to Waterloo ahead across the road on the left.

This is a very useful station for direct trains to Gatwick and Luton Airports.
