Things to do

-Leisure: St. James’s Park is one of the more predominant features in the area. Established in 1603, it occupies an enviable spot with views of Whitehall and Buckingham Palace. Along with amazing vantage points, St. James’s Park has also been home to a colony of pelicans since several were presented as a gift by the Russian ambassador in 1664.

-Attractions: The River Thames is just a short walk from St. James’s holiday apartments and links visitors to some of London’s best-known attractions. Clipper services from Westminster Pier take passengers west to the London Eye, and east to the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, and Greenwich. The journey along the river offers excellent views of the city.

-Culture: The National Gallery is located at the foot of Trafalgar Square and houses masterpieces from some of Western Europe’s most renowned painters. The museum, which is free to enter, has a collection of over 2,300 paintings. Visitors are able to view priceless works of art for free, including well-known works by Vermeer, Monet, Bellini, Rubens, van Gogh, da Vinci, and Botticelli. The National Gallery is open daily from 10am.

-Museums: The Household Cavalry Museum is located at the edge of St. James’s Park and is consequently an easy walk from holiday apartments in St. James. The museum provides a fascinating look into how the Household Cavalry operates. Visitors will get to see traditional uniforms of the cavalry and even the original 18th-century stables. The museum itself is within Whitehall, one of the most historic buildings in the city.

-History: The Churchill War Rooms are a branch of the Imperial War Museum and include the actual underground bunker that was built for Churchill and his government during WWII. In addition to a modern museum space and exhibits, much of the bunker is furnished and outfitted just as it was when it was built. The War Rooms are like a time capsule that has been preserved for the benefit of future generations and offer a tangible piece of history.

                                                              Our family of 6 stayed comfortably in this apartment, literally just steps from Picadilly Circus.

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              Our family of 6 stayed comfortably in this apartment, literally just steps from Picadilly Circus. That was a pro and a con. Convenient to entertainment and shopping and the tube. But sometimes could be loud. There is no air conditioning in this apartment and during our stay, we had unseasonably warm and wonderful, dry weather which was fabulous. However, at night the apartment was quite warm and we couldn't open the windows because of the street noise. There are small fans in the apartment, but not enough to keep comfortable while you sleep. We did run into one major issue during our stay. Evidently, a few times a year the water pump for the building has to be re-set and only the building manager has the key. We were out of water for several hours, which was quite inconvenient. I called several times and was told that it was being handled and would be on shortly. That wasn't the case. The flat owner ended up coming and somehow was able to re-set the pump. A big thank you to her, but a huge inconvenience nonetheless. The rooms were very adequate and spacious- plenty of space for the 6 of us. I would say that mirrors in the bedrooms would be nice. If the outlets in the bathrooms will not allow hair dryers, then mirrors in the bedrooms are necessary. I dried my hair in the bedroom trying to see my reflection in the tv. Not ideal. Kitchen was well stocked with all the appliances of home. I had trouble with the dryer- not sure if it was user error or if the dryer just did not dry efficiently. Got the towels very hot, just not dry. I called the guest manager and they brought us fresh towels. The guest manager/host was very easy to deal with and was quite helpful, answering our questions before our trip and even taking receipt of our football tickets for the Liverpool/Barcelona game and delivering them to our apartment. I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 because of the water outage and the fact that they didn't just tell me the truth upfront- would have saved some frustration. Large apartment right in the heart of London's busiest and trendy areas. Staying with our 4 college age kids, it was a great choice for us.
