How to get around: The apartment is extremely close to Paddington Station, and the Heathrow express ., it is also situated between two tube stations - Lancaster Gate and Paddington, both only two minutes walk away. Numerous buses can take you to various places in London. A good idea is to hop onto a red double decker tourist bus which that will take you to all the major sites, so you have a good idea of the city. These are hop on and off buses. If you would prefer to cycle, one of the cycle stations is just by Lancaster Gate tube station, great for cycling across the park - the first 30 minutes are free.
Activities: If you like to jog first thing in the morning - then this is the ideal apartment for you. Hyde Park is 100 metres walk away. After jogging, you can then stop for a break at the Italian Gardens Cafe, which opens at 7.30 in the morning, great start to the day. The park offers a huge range of activities from boating on the Serpentine (also swimming in the summer months) to horse riding, tennis, cycling, roller blading and skateboarding. As well as two amazing art galleries.
if you consider shopping an activity then you have all you require nearby a short bus ride away - Oxford Street with all its shops including Selfridges, and Regent Street with Hamleys toy store . Or across the Park to Knightsbridge and Harrods.
Antiques maybe of interest -Portobello road is not far away - which has one of the world's largest antique street markets.
For food shopping the easiest remedy if you are going to cook during your stay is to stop off at Waitrose Supermarket, about ten minutes walk on the Edgware Road you will find everything you need. They deliver as well which is a plus when carrying heavy bottles up the stairs!
