LONDON ON THE THAMES - HOME TO THE BOAT RACE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Putney & Wandsworth - London Riverside Flat

Sleeps 6+, Unique, Modern, Central Air Con, Two Cinema rooms, on the Thames

Putney: a lovely, green part of London. Famous start line for the Oxford/Cambridge Boat Race. Situated on the River Thames, with all of its amenities, the London River side Flat is unique, spacious and can accommodate groups of 6+. Beautifully decorated, modern, close to everything in London including the River Taxi and Thames Path.

Great location for the Thames - wake up and have your coffee on the river. Watch the City come to life along the river.

Central Air Conditioning is also installed throughout the flat, making it a joy to stay in the summer months - and a pretty unique offering in London.

Great location for sport: The Boat Race (rowing), Queens Club (tennis), Wimbledon (tennis), The Oval (cricket), Twickenham (Rugby), Craven Cottage and Stamford Bridge (Football).

Shopping: Westfield and Harrods.

Exercise: Walking or running along the Thames Path.

In a previous life it was an off-licence Pub. Newly refurbished to a high standard, There are 2 cinema rooms with big screens for film nights.

Access - The entire flat is yours.

Our presence is upon arrival, departure, and when requested.

In short it is a wonderful place to holiday in London.

Walking distance from the Tube, Train, Bus, River Taxi (Thames Clippers) or jogging on the river path.

New in 2013 - The River bus service operated by Thames Clippers has recently expanded their schedule. Just steps away from the flat, you can be picked up by riverboat and taken to either Westminster or even as far as Canary Wharf, Greenwich, or the O2 Arena.

There really is no better way to get around London!

On-street parking is available (charges apply). We are able to organise visitor permits at a discount to the meter rates. Please let us know beforehand so that we can organise parking permits if required.

About John Kingdon

Entrepreneur and Londoner

John Kingdon purchased this apartment in 2005

Why John Kingdon chose Putney & Wandsworth

Putney is the first nice part of the river as you travel from the City's Square Mile up the Thames. Its an amazing spot so close to all of central London. Taking in the City by river is the best way to see London.

What makes this apartment unique

The London Riverside Flat was previously the site of the original miniature sets and filming of the demo-reel subsequently shown to film director George Lucus. He was suitably impressed and awarded the group the job of miniature filming for the original Star Wars film - although that filming was completed elsewhere.

Location combined with Eclectic Accomodations

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend The London River Flat owned and operated by John Kingdon. The accommodations are just as advertised and his personal touch and hospitality only makes the experience better. He helped us understand all the public transportation with Tube and Train stops short (and enjoyable) walks away from the Flat. Walk out the front door and you are 50 meters from the Thames River with all the Boathouses and Rowing Clubs fronting the river. A fabulous atmosphere! Should you require Parking, there are ample opportunities on the street outside the Flat. Several Breakfast and Lunch spots within 400 meters where you can purchase a meal for 5 Pounds or less (Grind and Bedford Cafe are 2 we found). Grocery Store and Bus Stop within 150 meters. Location, Location, Location!! In London - Yes, but Putney is almost like your own small city! Beds were comfortable and the TV set-up is better described as Home Theatre - so if you have children or enjoy television, you will love this set-up! Fully functional kitchen to include a washer-dryer unit that works quite well. Bathroom has a modern shower stall and is all you need for a week or 2. We would definitely return to the London River Flat!! Jim and Margaret Jubb

This riverside flat is truly a gem!

  • 5 out of 5
This riverside flat is as good or better than described on the website. It is clean, modern and quite well stocked. The beds are comfortable, linens fresh, living room hospitable, and the bathroom and kitchen are newly remodeled. The walk-in shower is a bonus. The giant, high tech tv's is also a nice addition, loaded with Apple TV and all the latest programming features....great for watching sports and netflix.

But the main attraction is outside, the River Thames. Wonderful river walks, boat rides, and watching all the rowers and other action on the Thames. The Putney and Barnes neighborhoods are lovely abounding with great pubs, restaurants, shops and green spaces. Getting to central London is easy on the tube or ferry boat.

John, the owner, is welcoming, always responsive and readily available to help with anything.

I would highly recommend this flat.
