Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in St Katharine's & Wapping - 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.

Gorgeous Views, Nice Building

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in a great area, very close to tube stations and the river boat. The view was unbeatable, gorgeous Tower Bridge was visible from every window. The apartment came with everything you might need, the building itself was quiet and convenient, we were even able to check in early.

There were a few broken items that they pointed out to us, and the living room was pretty shabby. We asked for two twin beds in the second bedroom and found them almost comically uncomfortable, springs poking up right through the middle. However, everyone was very helpful and despite these minor flaws it was a great stay.

Excellent location, good size rooms.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment and the wonderful view of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. It's very convenient to the Underground and within walking distance of many good pubs, restaurants and the Thames. We would certainly consider staying here again the next time we visit London.

Great location - short walk to underground

  • 5 of 5

We loved Martin's apartment and it fit the five of us comfortably. He set up the 2nd bedroom with 3 twin beds which was perfect for our three children. We loved having two full bathrooms! Made showering so much easier. We used the refrigerator to keep some light snacks to enjoy pre-dinner. We did laundry and dried our clothes on the large drying rack provided. This made it very easy to pack a light suitcase and wear everything twice. We loved the short walk to the underground. Bought our Oyster cards and just traveled throughout the city by tube. Views of Tower Bridge from all the windows was unforgettable - especially all lit up at night. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

Better than pictured

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the internet do not do it justice. The views are amazing and the flat itself was nice and tidy. There was everything we could have asked for and more. It was even stocked with some treats and enough to make breakfast. We've stayed at many where there is not even salt supplied, so this was a very nice treat for us.

The location could not have been better. Less than 5 minute walk to the tube station and buses and restaurants close by.

The only issue is the street it is located on is quite busy, so sleeping with the windows open was not possible for us, too noisy, but once the windows were closed, no problems with noise at all.

I would stay again and hope to in the future.
