Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in City of London Financial District - Tower View apt Central London

Luxury self catering apartments in the centre of London - Sleeps Up to 5

We are pleased to offer two luxury self-catering apartments in this Edwardian building, located close by the River Thames, with the world-famous Tower of London literally across the road, and the iconic Tower Bridge as our backdrop.

Our two-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 people, Plus an additional travel cot - appropriate for a baby up to 18 months’ old - available on request. Our one-bedroom apartment is bright and spacious, accommodating up to 5 people, again with travel cot available on request.

Both apartments are elegantly furnished, providing high-quality amenities and excellent value for money, given our prestigious

The Tower Hill location is ideal for both business and leisure visitors alike. For business visitors, the City of London financial district is on our doorstep. For leisure visitors, Tower Hill’s environs are steeped in history, from Roman times onwards, through the invasion of William the Conquerer, to the terrible exploits of Jack the Ripper, a short distance east in Whitechapel. We then come right up to the present-day architecture of the Shard and the Gherkin, both of which are within less than a mile’s radius and easily accessible, by public transport, taxi or on foot.

The area is well served by literally 100's of local restaurants to suit all budgets and sophisticated wine bars and London pubs. Sight seeing and the Theatres of the WestEnd are easily accessible by tube, bus or short cab ride. We aim to ensure that our apartments feel like your home away from home and our location next to the majestic Tower of London will leave you with fantastic memories and wanting to return!

The views from each room within these elegant apartments located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of this small, quiet and exclusive residential building are spectacular. The nearby Thames path enable guests to take a relaxing walk along the embankment and take in magnificent views as they walk to nearby St Paul's Cathedral, The Tate Modern, Covent Garden and the West End beyond.

Tower Hill has an abundance of high quality restaurants, which cater to every palate and every wallet. A short stroll past the 'Beef Eaters' (guards of the Tower and the Crown Jewels) you will find St Katherine's Dock filled with swanky private yachts as well a wide selection of trendy eateries. Just across Tower Bridge at Butlers Wharf you will find Sir Terrance Conran's famous group of restaurants including 'Pont De La Tour' (Fish) and the 'Chop House' (contemporary English food). Both these locations offer alfresco dining by the river for that perfect romantic and memorable evening spent watching the world go by with friends and family.

Perfect for sightseeing and business trips: From our apartment you can easily visit all the famous sites without need for a car. Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are approximately a 7 minute journey by Tube or 20 minutes by bus. This means that guests can easily access to the main tourist attractions such as St Paul's cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as the National Gallery and British museum etc. Harrods and the hustle and bustle of all shopping along Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets are also a short journey by tube or bus but Tower Hill and the City also provide an extensive choice of shopping close by. The tour buses pass outside our front door if you want the thrill of seeing the sights from the famous London Red Bus!

The apartments are easily accessible from London's main airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted) by Tube, rail or bus within an hour.... and London City airport is just 25 mins using the Dockland Light railway

City of London / Tower of London Apartment Spectac

  • 5 out of 5
Description was right on. Apartment was immaculate, well-maintained, nicely stocked, wonderful location. Right next to underground station making it easily accessible to both Heathrow and any location in London. Not only would we recommend, but we would rent again the next time we are in London. Nice restaurants locally and grocery store around the block.

Great Location and Incredible View

  • 4 out of 5
The tube access is just across the park and several evenings we stopped there on our way back from our daily treks. Restaurants and grocery stores were within easy walking distance.

The flat had almost everything we needed. I say almost because we could not get the washer/dryer combo to work correctly. I had read other comments about this so I specifically asked about how to operate it. We were told to read the directions on the machine and were advised to use the drying rack in the bathroom instead of using the dryer. We read the directions but could not get the machine to work correctly. We ended up hand washing our clothes and hanging them on the drying rack.

Jane did a good job telling us about the flat and gave us directions to the grocery. We really appreciated having some food already stocked. We did not cook, but he kitchen seemed to have everything you would need. We used the coffer maker and the dishwasher and no problems with those.

The view never got old; seeing the Tower Bridge, especially at night, was a treat.

The flat is on a very busy street so traffic noise was an issue. We finally got some relief by closing the window and running the fan for 'white noise'.

Great flat in central location

  • 4 out of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this flat located at Tower Bridge. The apartment was clean and very comfortable, with good amenities. We were close to the Tube station, Borough Market, Tower Bridge, as well as shops for things like groceries. Martin and Jane were extremely helpful with our questions and requests.

Excellent location and competitive price!

  • 5 out of 5
I'm highly recommending this flat if you're in London and with your family or group of friends. We stayed here a few months back and had a fantastic time. We loved our view of the Tower of London and the River Thames just outside our window. The flat was roomy and gave us enough space to move around comfortably. After touring London, which by the way was very convenient for us because of the building's great location, we've always looked forward to going home and relaxing in this cozy flat. Stay here when on London if you want to experience the best of what the city has to offer and get your money's worth!

Lovely apartment - excellent location

  • 5 out of 5
This two-bedroom, 2-bath, well-appointed apartment is a true gem - comfortably elegant, very clean, complete with everything one would need and the location is beyond words! We loved it and it really made our vacation so relaxed and enjoyable. The owner provided very helpful information leading up to our trip and was very professional. Our family (2 adults, 2 teens) loved staying here; we would certainly choose the apartment again. We were greeted by the owner's assistant upon our arrival - she showed us how all the appliances worked and gave us helpful information regarding grocery shopping, restaurants, local transport, and purchased a few food items for us which was a welcome surprise on a Sunday afternoon. She was lovely and we knew we could call upon her if we needed anything during the week - but everything was perfect - we had no need to contact the owner or her for anything. Across the street from the Tower Hill tube stop and the Tower of London - the location was ideal and very convenient for us as tourists. There are many places to eat nearby so we did not use the kitchen in the apartment much but it is well-suited for cooking. We found the location to be very safe and family-friendly - a bit removed from the touristy bustle of the city - which we found to be a very pleasant and delightful characteristic of the apartment. Also - breathtaking view of Tower of London - especially at night! Absolutely five stars!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a glowing review. It does make the hard work of our team worthwhile to hear that you had such a good time and enjoyed our apartment. We do feel that our apartment offers the best of both worlds - the comfort of a well equipped home-from-home and also being right in the heart of London, without the stress of living in the West-end. We look forward to welcoming you back to London for your future trips
