SOUTH BANK...THE NEW HEART OF LONDON. GARDEN APARTMENT.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in South Bank and Southwark - Southbank Garden Apartment

Garden Apartment - 2 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 2-6)

Our Southbank garden apartment, in the new heart of London, is 100 yards from The Thames behind The OXO Tower between Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.

Our apartment is on the first and second floors of a small, modern block of 16 apartments. The first floor comprises of a living room and full kitchen. There are patio doors onto a beautiful, planted deck with a table and chairs for al fresco dining. There is also a double bedroom and shower room on this floor. There is also a a third bedroom with bunk beds suitable for two children or one adult.. On the second floor is an en suite master bedroom overlooking the garden deck. There is an elevator.

We are very close to the cultural heart of London including The National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, Tate Modern, Globe Theatre and The London Eye. There are lots of places nearby to eat and drink to cover all tastes and budgets.

Location: We are ten minutes from two tube stops (Waterloo and Blackfriars), which have 5 lines between them as well as British Rail services. For the most picturesque walk along The River, we use Embankment Station, which takes 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many photos you take!

Eating: We have plenty of places nearby to eat including two very good restaurants in The OXO Tower, which have great views. There are lots of less expensive restaurants within a short distance, many overlooking The River, and a couple of pubs on The River that serve food and drink throughout the day.It truly is the best location in London!

Dear David,



I would like to tell you that we 4 really enjoyed our holidays in London.



Your flat is great. Thank you for all the breakfast-things in the refrigiator.

David and Julia have always loved the culture of London's South Bank and when the opportunity arose to purchase an apartment they couldn't believe their luck.

They have a seven years' old son, Sebastian.

Julia is a professional, classical singer having trained at The Royal College of Music. Since the birth of Sebastian she has been a full time Mum fitting in the occasional concert.

David is a full time Dad and says it's the best thing he has ever done!

David and Julia Batchelor-Walsh purchased this apartment in 2005

The South Bank is the vibrant cultural centre of London. Our apartment is near Tate Modern, he world's most visited art gallery and a host of other attractions including The Globe Theatre, St Pauls, The National Theatre,National Film Theatre, Hayward Gallery, The Royal Festival Hall, London Eye etc etc.

We are within walking distance of theatreland and Covent Garden and there are lots and lots of places to eat and drink to suit all tastes and budgets.

Public transport is fabulous particularly the RV1 bus which stops outside our apartment block and runs, mainly along The River from Tower Hill to Covent Garden via Waterloo. It is a very frequent service. Taxis are abundant.

Garden apartment in the middle of London close to many of London's major tourist and cultural attractions and a short walk from The Thames.

Superbly located London apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Superbly located apartment a stone's throw from the London Eye, with many of London's top attractions within walking distance. We never had to travel more than 6 tube stops to go anywhere that we wanted to go, including the O2, which we went to via a sunny boat trip on a Thames Clipper, and returned via the underground.

We were there on a sunny week, and the patio garden was greatly appreciated, as was the piano, which our 12 year old son loved.

There are lots of good local restaurants within 10 minutes, and Borough Market on Thursday, Friday and Saturday is fabulous for picnic fodder, fruit, cheese and mouthwatering cakes.

Apartment is well equipped and clean, with everything that we needed for our week's stay. Welcome groceries were much appreciated.

We will definitely book this again for our next trip to London.

Fantastic Stay!!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I along with my parents stayed at David and Julia's apartment in London for just over 2 weeks. Everything was great! The apartment size was perfect and had everything we could possibly need. David had stocked the fridge with essentials which was fantastic. We were steps away from the Thames and very close to the tube and walking distance to Trafalgar square. The apartment was very clean. I found that David was very accommodating and easy to deal with which I truly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to stay in London. This would be my first choice should I return to London.

Excellent

  • 5 out of 5
This flat is perfect to explore Central London. It is steps from the river walk along the Thames, and very close to Blackfriars and Waterloo stations. Central London is just a walk across the river. The Southbank area is a great spot to stay. Not too touristy, except the actual riverfront, with several good pubs and restaurants catering to locals located nearby. The flat has a great garden terrace, and has all the amenities. The owner, David, was very helpful - especially when our arrival was unexpectedly delayed. I can highly recommend. Thanks again David.

Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. Close to most of the major sites in Central London and the Borough Market, all within walking distance as well as near the subway and train stations. David greeted us upon arrival with some staples and a bottle of wine. The property was well maintained, clean and bright. We would definitely rent again.

Fantastic South Bank Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in this London apartment. We've never stayed on the South Bank before and loved the location with it's proximity to pubs and restaurants.

Everything needed for a family of four to make our stay comfortable was available in the apartment. The refrigerator which had starting staples was a very pleasant surprise. We also really enjoyed the outside deck area with it's beautiful flowers.

A bus goes right past the apartment that will take you to Tower Hill going one direction and Covent Garden the opposite way. It was very convenient to use on our theater evenings. The subway was a ten minute walk.

We would love to return and stay again in the future.

An Excellent Place to Stay.

  • 5 out of 5
Where to begin? This apartment is excellent for so many reasons. Four of us, two couples, stayed there for nine days. David, the owner, graciously greeted us and showed us our accommodations. We lacked nothing in amenities including breakfast items in the fridge and cupboards. Although the apartment is only 750 sq. ft., one of the bedrooms and its ensuite is on the second floor so the apartment feels larger than it is. That bedroom also has access to an elevator - very convenient when dealing with luggage. The location of the apartment is also perfect; within easy and enjoyable walking distances to many of London's major attractions as well as grocery stores, pubs, and restaurants. The Jubilee Walk along the south bank of the Thames is less than a block from the apartment, and while we were there it was set up with lovely kiosks for one of the city's Christmas Markets. The apartment is very clean, and it is situated on a quiet street. A good night's rest after 10-12 hours of sightseeing was always available. London is a great city and this is a great apartment. Although we tried, we didn't see all that the city and its surrounds have to offer, of course. We hope to return, and when we do, we hope that this apartment is still available. David and Julia, you have a gem!

We are very close to the cultural heart of London including The National Theatre, Hayward Gallery, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre, and Tate Modern. They are all within a five to ten minutes walk along the river bank . A little further and you would reach The London Eye, The Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. If you cross Waterloo Bridge, Covent Garden is two minutes away.
