Photos and Description of this 1 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

The apartment is clean, great location and great view of Tower Bridge.

  • 5 of 5

Martin and his secretary Jane was very helpful in providing directions, and instruction to get access to the property for check in. The location and view is exactly what is described in the property details, and the photos reflects the view of the street and Tower Bridge from this apartment. The property is clean with a fully functional kitchen. We did use the washer every other day during our 6 nights stay (summer of 2016). Our family uses all 3 beds in this one bedroom apartment. The location is perfect for us, 3 minutes’ walk to Tower hill underground and plenty of choices for restaurants within walking distance. The Hop On/Off bus stop is across the street at the Tower of London stop. I would recommend this property to friends or relatives. You can walk over the Tower Bridge to south bank area within 12 minutes.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews written about this property ably describe the wonderful amenity of this apartment. From the amazing view of the Tower Castle and Bridge to the fabulous location, five days were just not enough. I must praise your lovely agent who greeted us as if we were related and went out of her way to ensure we settled in.

Great Location unbelievable view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment. Overall the apartment is just as depicted in the pictures. I was a little unsure when I made the reservation that the view of the tower would be as beautiful as the photographs, it was!! In fact I got the flu while I was there and was laid up for a day, thank goodness I had that wonderful view to keep me company. My husband was in London for work and I tagged along so I did a lot on my own, The Tube Station is within yards of the apartments front door and it made it super easy for me to get all over the city. Being right across the street from the London Tower has it's benefits. There are lots of little pubs and restaurants within walking distance from the apartment - also a grocery store. The apartment was very clean and the appliance current it would have been nice to have more clean towels in the apartment as washing them in the tiny washer/dryer combo never seemed to get them quite dry. Martin was super easy to work with and went over and above to accommodate us. It was a pleasure working with him. One other thing, the apartment is right on the busy street and traffic was loud. The first couple of nights were difficult and then I got used to it.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week long stay in the one bedroom apartment (photos 14 to 24). We were very pleased with the location, security (there were three locked doors and a lift between us and the street), cleanliness, and customer service. The lift was on the ground floor so we had no need to haul luggage up a flight of stairs. Upon arrival in London, we made arrangements as directed and had no problems meeting our agent at the apartment. The photos accurately depict the one bedroom apartment (including, notably, the view). The appliances we used worked just fine (my wife commented on the nice quality of the provided bath towels). The bed (a double, by US size standards) was very comfortable (even though I am used to a much larger size). The location is within a very easy walk to the Post Office, several groceries and Starbucks (one Starbucks is in the same city block), the Tower Hill Underground Station (and Tower Gateway DLR). We walked from the apartment to Tower Bridge (through the Tower of London) Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral (twice). We would not hesitate to recommend family and friends stay in the apartment and hope to do so next time we return to London.

Fantastic flat in the heart of historical London

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed on this property, in both the 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom flat. This holiday, our family of 4 enjoyed the 1 bedroom. The flat is very well appointed with all the necessities and extras that made our stay perfect. Coffee and tea provided by Martin made our morning view of the skyline and river even more enjoyable while goodies in the fridge and on the counter (like Scottish shortbread biscuits) were appreciated by our kids. The view of the Tower of London, the mighty Thames, and the Tower Bridge are exceptional and everything is within walking distance, including the Tower Hill tube station. We would highly recommend these accommodations and will certainly only stay here when visiting London (our third time!). We had only the smallest of issues with the Wi-Fi when we first arrived but "Martin" was quick with a solution and before we knew it, we now had two separate, high-speed Wi-Fi routers dedicated for our flat and plenty of secure bandwidth for business and pleasure for us and the kids! In short, you will not find a more perfect flat for the price...I am sure you could find a flat that is more expensive in this lovely area (exquisite area in fact) but you will not find one that is as convenient, charming, and has as good a view. We gave this flat a five star rating only because there were no more stars on the scale.

Owner's Response: Wow … what can I say but thanks……. we are delighted with your review and that we got to host you for a second time … and we appreciate your appreciation ;-)… I know that our housekeeperJane works hard to make sure that things are 'just right' . I'm so sorry for the temporary outage problems created by British Telecom but I'm thankful that our back-up plan worked for you. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to London in due course.
