Eating out locally?
All the places below are 2 - 10 minute walk.
Next to London Bridge and the Tower of London on the North West side you'll find a Wagamama for noodles, a Bodeans for ribs and BBQ, and a Starbucks. Charming and picturesque St Katherine Docks over the road on the North East side of the bridge has a super range of bars and restaurants - St Katharine Docks is one of the best-kept secret locations in Central London and has a great atmosphere. Brick Lane's curry houses are a 10 minute walk North East of the flat. If you'd like a spectacular view while you dine a 10 minute walk will take you to the Heron Tower's two restaurants or sky bar - at 175 metres above the city the views are stunning! The restaurants are called Sushi Samba and the Duck and Waffle (note - no trainer style shoes allowed). Or head south of the river over Tower Bridge, down the steps and turn left and you'll find Le Pont de la Tour on the river bank. Famous for top end French cuisine Pont de la Tour has fantastic views of the Bridge. Alternatively go down the steps and turn right to walk past City Hall and the Scoop amphitheatre towards HMS Belfast moored on the south bank and you'll find Gaucho, Dim T, Strada, Pod, Pret, a Bagel Street deli and an M&S simply food. Every budget catered for...
Oxford Circus is 19 minutes on the tube in one direction and the new Westfield shopping centre in Stratford next to the Olympic Park is 13 minutes in the other direction.
Tower Bridge Exhibition is fascinating (you can walk right across the top and go down and see the engines that lift the bascules).
A 20 minute walk south over Tower Bridge and along the south bank past the Scoop amphitheatre and HMS Belfast will find you in Borough Market, London’s most renowned food market with exceptional British and international produce. Continue a bit further and you'll pass a replica of Sir Francis Drakes' Golden Hinde, The Clink - England's first prison, the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern and then the footbridge back over the Thames towards St Paul’s cathedral.
Going east, Greenwich is a 20 minute ride on the River Taxi which stops right in front of the Tower of London or an easy trip on the DLR through Canary Wharf. The Royal Observatory, home of Greenwich Mean Time and the Prime Meridian line was founded by Charles II in 1675 and is, by international decree, the official starting point for each new day, year and millennium (at the stroke of midnight GMT is measured from the Prime Meridian).
Explore all of London - Oxford Street, the West End theatres, Buckingham Palace, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, the V&A, the Royal Parks (boats on the Serpentine). All are easily accessible by tube, regular or open top bus, black cab, river taxi or even Boris bikes! Anyone can hire Boris bikes... just pop your debit or credit card in the machine next to the bikes and follow the instructions. Or pick up a map in the flat and walk.
Nowhere is far away! The flat is in Zone 1 on the London Underground. Tower Hill tube station (green/district line and yellow/circle line underground trains) is just 2-3 minutes' walk; Tower gateway DLR is even closer. London Bridge Station is a 20-minute walk or about a £6 taxi ride and Fenchurch Street station is a 5-minute walk. River Taxis are available from Tower Pier, which is right next to the Tower of London and a short 6 minute walk from the flat. Several Boris bike racks are just a couple of minutes away too!

I'm afraid I don't accept provisional bookings. First accepted enquirer to pay secures the dates
