Make a holiday apartment in St. James your home away from home

Surrounded by palaces and world-famous landmarks, the neighbourhood of St. James is in good company. Situated comfortably between Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace, it is right in the heart of London and an ideal place to stay when visiting the UK capital. HomeAway has several beautiful holiday apartments in St. James available for all budgets. These St. James holiday apartments range from small studio flats to luxurious two-bedroom apartments that can sleep up to four people. Staying in a holiday apartment in St. James put you at the centre of one of the most popular cities for tourists in the world. Major landmarks like Whitehall, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace are just a brief stroll away. Bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and other entertainment venues are also within striking distance thanks to the fast and efficient London Underground system.

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.

 

Weather in St. James

Each season ushers in a new outdoor aesthetic ranging from leafy trees and blooming flowers in the spring and summer, to hues of orange and auburn accompanied by twinkling holiday lights in the autumn and winter.

                                                          Everything about renting this flat was excellent. Communication with Melanie was fantastic....she was always so quick to reply with any questions or concerns I had for her. The flat itself was amazing, and you couldn't ask for a better location. We were very pleased and would certainly recommend this flat to anyone staying in London. Thank you Melanie!!!

                                                          Awesome Flat (and host) in Haymarket SW1

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          I spent three months in this flat in Haymarket, which is about as centre as you can get in the Westminster borough of London. From the windows I saw the red carpet get rolled out for Tom Cruise and Ben Affleck in Leicester Square, close to good bars and restaurants in Soho and Covent Garden and so many theatres are a stroll away. The Piccadilly Circus tube station is across the street. This is the third time that Alex hosted me and I hope it will not be the last. Alex is very attentive, communicative and flexible which made adjusting to London life even easier. When there was a problem it was quickly resolved and the cleaner does a great job on a weekly basis. Thanks Alex!
