Chelsea Embankment is renowned for its picturesque beauty and quintessential British atmosphere, running parallel with the River Thames, where you are able to catch a river taxi if you wish.
From the apartment, you can walk through the park and to the famous King’s Road in Chelsea in less than half an hour. This area is again renowned for its boutique and trendy shops, bars and restaurants. The Kings Road also offers cultural opportunities, for example you can visit the world famous Saatchi Gallery at the eastern end of the road. Heading further east you find yourself in London’s Sloane Square, where you can find luxury brand shops including Tiffany & Co. and Hugo Boss, as well as fantastic places to eat and drink.
South Kensington for Natural History, Victoria & Albert and Science Museums is only 10 minutes by taxi, and Kensington High Street close by offers many more restaurants and bars.
The property is only a 5 minute walk to Battersea Park train station, where you can easily catch connections to all areas of the city. You can be at Victoria in 5 minutes and from there you could hop on one of three main tube lines – the Circle, District and Victoria lines which can take you all over London very quickly. From here you can be at Oxford Street for shopping in 5 minutes, and Notting Hill for the Portobello Road markets in 12 minutes.
Just south of the apartment on Falcon Road is Clapham Junction Station, which makes both Central and Southern London easily accessible for you. Additionally there is Queenstown Station on Battersea Park Road which serves a wide range of upmarket areas in South West London including Barnes and Richmond. Both stations are within walking distance of the property.
There are also many buses which run nearby to the house which can take you directly to High Street Kensington, Knightsbridge, Belgravia, Notting Hill, Hyde Park and Oxford Street.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We really enjoyed staying here!! A lovely house in a great location - much nicer than a hotel. We thought the house was really good value for money and we would book with Vive Unique again. A great choice of property for a family. Thank you.
