Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 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

A Perfect introduction to London!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first trip to Europe & our first rental with VRBO, arrived on time and were met by assistant & within ten minutes the owner came over. It is a spectacular flat, overlooking the Tower of London and all Hallows Church (the oldest in London). Everything was clean, Martin explained how the appliances worked, left his telephone number and we were left alone to soak up the view. Both buses and the tube were within a half block walk.
When we come back to London, this will be our first & hopefully our only choice.
Thank you Martin for a wonderful stay.

Perfect Location

  • 5 out of 5
This unit captures the real essence of London: amazing view of Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and just the general hustle and bustle of London city life. It is well equipped, clean, and you do feel very safe and secure in the building. By some freak of nature, it was unseasonably warm weather during our stay - highs in the mid 80s, but there were free standing fans available that helped us get a good night's sleep. This unit has a wonderful location for evening strolls along the embankment, picking up a Boris bike for a quick ride, or hopping on the tube or bus. Couldn't beat it - we will definitely recommend this to our friends.

Casi perfecto

  • 4 out of 5
Estuvimos pasando un fin de semana en este apartamento totalmente equipado y con unas vistas espectaculares. Al lado de la Torre de Londres y con pubs, pizzerías y otros locales en la misma calle a ambos lados del portal. Autobuses y metro a unos 100 metros.
La atención por parte de Martin fue exquesita.
Solo un problema: el tráfico rodado de la calle puede resultar molesto a quien no esté dispuesto a madrugar o esté acostumbrado a dormir sin ningún tipo de ruido.

Outstanding apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the one bedroom flat with our 16 month son for 4 nights. We had a truly wonderful time. The apartment is perfectly located literally across the street from the Tower and has a wonderful view of the Tower, Tower Bridge and the Thames (the pics are not fake!!! :) ). Transport is is readily available from the tube, DLR, the Thames water taxis and bus--it's too easy to get anywhere in London from here. Ample restaurant options and a grocery store are within walking distance. The apartment was immaculate, the building is secure and the kitchen is well appointed with dishwasher and washer/dryer if needed. A Pack n Play-type baby cot is available, just bring your sheets. Martin met us late (we didn't get to the apartment until nearly 10PM) and gave us a great overview of the place, the amenities and the neighborhood. He gave us great advice about London and supplied us with some groceries (milk, OJ, bread, butter) too--a great touch for a family arriving late with a young kid--didn't have to worry about a late night grocery run. Can't recommend the place enough; we'll likely come back for our next stay in London.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind remarks. We try hard to accommodate guests who have small children and who might arrive late in the evening tired and hungry. We are so lucky to be surrounded by lots of restaurants and cafe's which provide so much choice and cater to any budget. Its great that guests can simply just cross the street and find lots of choice close by because if you have spent the day sight seeing most people would rather not have to venture too far away from home in order to have a lovely meal at a reasonable price.
I'm pleased that the additional baby cot worked well for you and that my briefing when you arrived helped to orient you so that you could make the best use of your time in London.

We would be delighted to welcome you back to London in the near future and maybe next time you will plan to spend a little more time as there is so much to see and do in this wonderful city, which I am proud and fortunate to call my home town ;-)

Wonderful stay - great apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in the one bedroom apartment. The four of us (myself, my husband and our two teenage sons) really enjoyed the apartment and its spectacular view and location! It was extremely comfortable and fully outfitted with everything we could want, including a great welcome package. Martin met us and walked us through everything, as well as gave us lots of information about the area, places to eat and things to see. The location and transpotation links are outstanding - Tower Hill tube stop is just around the corner, and the bus to Trafalgar Square runs right past the front door. The Docklands Rail is also close, as is the water taxi dock at the Tower of London. It was a quick walk over Tower Bridge to get to Southwark. There are grocery stores about a five minute walk away, and immediatly downstairs is a pub, Starbucks, Pret a Manger and Pizza Express. The area is very safe and the building very secure. We used the kitchen facilities mostly for breakfast, and really appreciated having a dishwasher and laundry faciltities. We simply loved this apartment - it made our trip quite special and we hope to return soon. Thank you Martin!
