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

London overall enjoys pretty mild weather. Summer temperatures can reach into the mid-20s, whilst occasional snowfall is not uncommon in the winter.

Holiday apartments in St. James and the rest of London are popular with tourists throughout the year. 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.

                                              It is our pleasure to comment on the excellent stay we had at the well-decorated HelloYellow

                                              It is our pleasure to comment on the excellent stay we had at the well-decorated HelloYellow apartment (Central West End Design House) in August 2016 in London. 1. The location was great - so close to Trafalgar and Leicester Squares plus many other spots. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go or take tube ride there. Lots of great restaurants nearby of different ethnicities which are sure to please all tastes. We booked theatre tickets and walked there or took a bicycle taxi. Lovely art museums nearby too and pubs for lunch. (Be sure to get precise directions to the house as it was hard to find on map and taxi driver wasn't even sure. There is no obvious number on the door.) 2. The people we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. We had to leave early in the morning and so were not able to retrieve our deposit (200 pounds) in cash. They ended up depositing it in our bank account. 3. This is essentially a condo on four floors - no elevator but walk up was ok. Stairs are narrow and steep so do be careful. The two upper levels each had a nice bedroom with comfy bed, TV, cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with good showers/tub and linens- we bought a tub mat because bath was slippery and we did not want to fall. The main level had a living room/drawing room with nice TV and a kitchen with great appliances, pots, dishes, cutlery etc. Remember to put away all food so as not to attract any mice, insects or bugs. There is a washing machine but no dryer. However a drying rack is provided which we set up in the living room. No air conditioning but very comfortable with fans and open windows. The entry level is the main door and a hallway with coat racks. Overall we would give this unit 4.5 stars out of 5 and would highly recommend to others. Hope we get back there soon. signed D & J - East Tennessee, USA

                                              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!

                                              Over the past 5 years we have rented apartments in London's West End, but this was a perfection in terms of location, service and communication. All major touristic highlights (Leicester Sq, Trafalgar Sq, River Thames, London Eye, Big Ben, Hyde Park, British Museum, eg. We were thrilled with the proximity to the Theatre where we had tickets for the Harry Potters, the Cursed Child. The well-designed and well equipped apartment offers a large dining table where we enjoyed our brekfasts. There are uncountable restaurants in the immediate area and a large Tesco within a minute walk. Melanie was gracious and helpful with requests regarding our stay. We heartily recommend the apartment and would rent it again on another trip.
