It is situated in a little street, very silence! But there is all you need: nice flat, supermarkets, restaurants (Indian, Pubs or Fish and Chips - very good!), Bus stops and Underground stations. You need only 20 minutes to Heathrow and 30 minutes to Trafalgar Square. It was perfect! Thank you for all!

Small shops within a minute and a lovely variety of pubs within several blocks. Also a LARGE shopping centre with many many well known shops...some of the biggies! Fully equipped kitchen, quiet garden off Living/kitchen area. Quiet! Our hosts could not have been more helpful or more kind. Upon our confirming our travel dates, we were provided with all necessary information with detailed maps, services and links. For my daughter and I it was an exceptional first tour of London. We would hope to do it again! More to see!
