Make a London holiday apartment your home away from home

With a large choice of London accommodation types and locations, you’ll be sure to find your ideal holiday apartment in London with HomeAway. London blends centuries of culture and heritage, with cutting edge entertainment, architecture, dining and shopping. And of course there are more sights and attractions than you can cram into one holiday. Most rentals are located in the centre of this exciting city, in the form of modern or classic apartments and townhouses in all kinds of styles and sizes, minutes on the tube or bus from world-famous landmarks. You’ll be pleased to find that most holiday apartments in London offer free wi-fi access, and despite the central locations, off-street parking is often included at London holiday homes.

Things to do from your apartment in London

-Sightseeing. London has some of the world’s most recognisable landmarks. Whether its historical buildings like the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament and St Paul’s Cathedral, or modern structures like the London Eye or the Shard tower. On the medieval streets of the Cities of London and Westminster you’ll find something to pique your interest at almost every turn.

-Museums. London is one of the world’s cultural hotbeds. Some of the best museums anywhere can be found here, from prestigious art institutions like the Tate Britain, Tate Modern and National Gallery to the distinguished British Museum, Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum. There are also famous arts centres at the South Bank and Barbican.

-Shopping. As you might expect from a city of London’s profile, there’s abundant choice when it comes to shopping. Whatever you’d like to find, an almost endless variety of market stalls, malls, luxury boutiques or high-street chains is at hand. Luxury shoppers might choose Knightsbridge or Bond Street, while the hip and trendy should make for locations like Covent Garden or Camden.

-Nightlife. London is a city with almost unlimited choice when it comes to evening entertainment. The West End is one of the world’s most celebrated theatre scenes, home to the Royal Opera House and a host of other respected venues. Younger visitors will be spoiled for choice, with an inestimable range of bars, legendary music venues and nightclubs.

-Dining. It follows that a city with one of the most cosmopolitan populations anywhere on the planet should have a dining variety to match. All tastes and pockets are catered for, from high-end destination restaurants run by famous luminaries of the food world, to fast food, pubs and bijou eateries specialising in familiar or exotic cuisines.

Weather in London

London holiday apartments are set in a city with a temperate climate, and no real extremes. Conditions tend to be quite changeable – summers are moderate, bringing occasional warm spells with sunny, clear weather for a few days at a time. Temperatures in July and August get up to the mid-20s or higher at times, but usually settle in the low-20s. Spring and autumn weather is mild, sometimes damp and occasionally breezy. Winters are also quite mild, but there are one or two cold snaps every year, during which there are a couple days of snowfall and sub-zero temperatures.

Travel to London

London is served by a much-improved public transport system, with a high concentration of underground stops, complemented by an extensive bus network. Despite introducing a congestion charge the roads can still get clogged at peak hours. The Docklands Light Railway operates in the east and southeast, and there’s a reliable rail network serving the southeast region, with 20 terminals in the centre. If you’re flying to London then the main airports are Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW), which have over the last three decades been joined by Stansted (STD), Luton (LUT) and London City (LCY).

If you are looking to secure temporary accommodation for two or three months, HomeAway offers a diverse range of short term rentals in London located all across the city and its suburbs.

We returned from Norway landing at 9:30 @ night. After getting through border control and getting the car we arrived at around midnight. Key was in a lockbox, Karen, the contact had sent me photos of its location and combo. So easy. If you have a car parking can be a nightmare sometimes, Karen organised parking pass but beware the local law enforcement is vicious. I filled out the pass correctly, put it on the dash but still copped a fine at 8.45 when parking starts at 8.30. I sent photgraphic evidence but all I got was a reduction to £40. Didn't detract from the stay though great location anso quiet.

Abundante información fue recibida antes de la llegada, perfectamente organizada con Dolly, la asistente de Rafael, una mujer encantadora y amable. El apartamento es precioso ( tal y como se ve en las fotografías ) y la ubicación excelente. Un diez sobre diez. Gracias! Margarita L

We really enjoyed our stay and made the most of our "tourists status" thanks to the very efficient transport links offered just outside the apartment. It amazed us how tranquil the apartment is being so well positioned bang on between two tube stations and plenty of shops and restaurants...Madeleine and Scott P.
