Interaction with guests
A comprehensive flat management manual (pdf format) is sent to each guest when the booking is complete. Best to save this to a portable device or print it out, it is useful (though the photos don't print very well as I've tried to limit the file size). I try to update it as often as possible to reflect temporary attractions (exhibitions, etc.).

About the neighborhood
Spring Gardens was once the pleasure grounds of central London. It has since been extensively built on. Then it was extensively bombed and redeveloped by the London County Council. Much that is good and interesting remains, including many small parks with facilities for children. Using a good map and avoiding main roads you will come across these on your way from more famous landmarks.

Imperial War Museum
Oval cricket ground
Lambeth Palace
Kennington Park
Vauxhall Park

St Thomas Hospital (Florence Nightingale museum)
