Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in London - Tower View apt Central London

Luxury self catering apartments in the centre of London - Sleeps Up to 5

We are pleased to offer two luxury self-catering apartments in this Edwardian building, located close by the River Thames, with the world-famous Tower of London literally across the road, and the iconic Tower Bridge as our backdrop.

Our two-bedroom apartment can comfortably sleep up to 6 people, Plus an additional travel cot - appropriate for a baby up to 18 months’ old - available on request. Our one-bedroom apartment is bright and spacious, accommodating up to 5 people, again with travel cot available on request.

Both apartments are elegantly furnished, providing high-quality amenities and excellent value for money, given our prestigious

The Tower Hill location is ideal for both business and leisure visitors alike. For business visitors, the City of London financial district is on our doorstep. For leisure visitors, Tower Hill’s environs are steeped in history, from Roman times onwards, through the invasion of William the Conquerer, to the terrible exploits of Jack the Ripper, a short distance east in Whitechapel. We then come right up to the present-day architecture of the Shard and the Gherkin, both of which are within less than a mile’s radius and easily accessible, by public transport, taxi or on foot.

The area is well served by literally 100's of local restaurants to suit all budgets and sophisticated wine bars and London pubs. Sight seeing and the Theatres of the WestEnd are easily accessible by tube, bus or short cab ride. We aim to ensure that our apartments feel like your home away from home and our location next to the majestic Tower of London will leave you with fantastic memories and wanting to return!

The views from each room within these elegant apartments located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of this small, quiet and exclusive residential building are spectacular. The nearby Thames path enable guests to take a relaxing walk along the embankment and take in magnificent views as they walk to nearby St Paul's Cathedral, The Tate Modern, Covent Garden and the West End beyond.

Tower Hill has an abundance of high quality restaurants, which cater to every palate and every wallet. A short stroll past the 'Beef Eaters' (guards of the Tower and the Crown Jewels) you will find St Katherine's Dock filled with swanky private yachts as well a wide selection of trendy eateries. Just across Tower Bridge at Butlers Wharf you will find Sir Terrance Conran's famous group of restaurants including 'Pont De La Tour' (Fish) and the 'Chop House' (contemporary English food). Both these locations offer alfresco dining by the river for that perfect romantic and memorable evening spent watching the world go by with friends and family.

Perfect for sightseeing and business trips: From our apartment you can easily visit all the famous sites without need for a car. Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are approximately a 7 minute journey by Tube or 20 minutes by bus. This means that guests can easily access to the main tourist attractions such as St Paul's cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, as well as the National Gallery and British museum etc. Harrods and the hustle and bustle of all shopping along Oxford, Regent and Bond Streets are also a short journey by tube or bus but Tower Hill and the City also provide an extensive choice of shopping close by. The tour buses pass outside our front door if you want the thrill of seeing the sights from the famous London Red Bus!

The apartments are easily accessible from London's main airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted) by Tube, rail or bus within an hour.... and London City airport is just 25 mins using the Dockland Light railway

City of London / Tower of London Apartment Spectac

  • 5 of 5

Description was right on. Apartment was immaculate, well-maintained, nicely stocked, wonderful location. Right next to underground station making it easily accessible to both Heathrow and any location in London. Not only would we recommend, but we would rent again the next time we are in London. Nice restaurants locally and grocery store around the block.

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment. One of the bedrooms had what seemed like a queen sized bed and we had the other made up with two twins. The apartment is so convenient to restaurants, grocery stores etc... The Tower Hill tube station is just a very short walk, maybe 3 minutes, across a small park. The Tower of London is across the street, as is All Hallows Church, one of the oldest churches in London and a must see. The apartment has a lift that takes you to the third floor right outside of the apartment, so it is easy to shuttle luggage back and forth. There is plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack. Kitchen is large by European standards and has everything you would need. The area around the apartment is very safe and secure. We were three women staying in the apartment and frequently walked at night and had no problems what so ever. One thing to take into consideration is there is road construction at present outside of the apartment building, so it can be noisy if you leave the windows open. With the windows closed we never had a problem sleeping. Not sure how long the construction will be going on. During the day , if we were in the apartment, you could have the windows open and still enjoy having a conversation with no problem. Would definitely stay here again.

Spring Break Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We decide to travel abroad during our extended spring break this year, and this home was a great choice! What originally started as a vacation for our family of four, expanded to include my elderly parents. The home owner was extremely accommodating with the travel change. The location could not have been better. We were right across the street from the London Tower, Tower Bridge, and Hop-on/Hop-off bus tours stop. On the same block was a tube station! There is a lot of construction going on in London, which made Uber/Taxi drops a bit more difficult than typical, but I think that any place you stay in London is going to afford the same construction results.

Overall, this was a fabulous location, great accommodations, and very welcoming hosts. I would stay her again any day. It was great!

I would definitely recommend this to friends. Lots of eating establishments nearby, as well as several little shops to get "on-the-go" food such as muffins or sandwiches.

Perfect location, perfect apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our experience. The apartment is ideally located, just steps from both the underground an many city buses. It was roomy, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It felt like a home away from home.

Martin was so easy to work with. He answered all questions we had and responded to all emails almost immediately. Jane, the woman who greeted us, was SO GREAT! Helpful, cheery and so fun!

Without question, we will be returning to this apartment in the future. We travel to England regularly and are so happy to have found this gem!

Excellent location !

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment for 6 days. It exceeded our expectations. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and glasses for evening cocktails. Everything you need for cooking a meal. It is very clean with more than enough room for 4 or 5 people. ( there is a pull out in the living room).

Perfect location. Local restaurants and grocery with in a short walk. Don't overlook the 3 restaurants on the ground floor. They are all great ! We enjoyed a walk to St Pauls and took in local sites along the way. View of the Tower Bridge is beyond description ! Tube is less than 5 minute walk as is the Tower Pier.

We will rent this one again on our next trip to London !

Thank you for a wonderful vacation spot !

Incredible views, comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our week long family vacation more and staying in this apartment served us beautifully. The views are to die for and the apartment itself is very inviting and comfortable. We thought having the Tower essentially in our front yard was pretty cool. My husband, two kids (ages 9, 12) and I had ample room to relax (and work) after a long day of being out and about. We like to have a quick bite in the morning before we hit the ground running and the kitchen allowed us to do just that. The apartment is easily accessible via tube to anywhere in the city (including Heathrow via Paddington Station), points north to the train we took to visit the Harry Potter studios and to the citycruises boats that we hopped on and off all day down to Greenwich and back up to the London Eye. We enjoyed the double decker #15 bus that took us via St Pauls to Trafalgar Square and it was an easy walk over the Tower Bridge to explore the Southwark sights. Sure, you can hear traffic and the tube a bit but what else would one expect in such a central city location. We enjoyed dinners close by at The Hung Drawn and Quartered and the lovely french restaurant Brasserie Blanc. All in all, we loved it and would return in a heartbeat.

Being located on the river guests have the option of romantic evening strolls and the Thames river boat services from Tower Pier.
