Lovely Tower Bridge Apartment with Balcony

Visited by Tripadvisor
Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
London, England
Nestled between the two financial districts (City of London and Canary Wharf) on the North side of the Thames River, the apartment offers the best of both worlds – close proximity to the action but without all the noise that’s usually associated with city life. The building is situated on a quiet one-way street, and the bedrooms are at the rear of the property facing onto a converted church (now used for a children's day care centre) Meaning there are no noisy bells to disturb your Sunday morning lie-in. :) Fully furnished with all utensils, linens and everything you’ll need for your stay – just bring your suitcases!

About the neighborhood
You can't get closer to the action than this apartment in Tower Hill! The perfect location makes access to Tower Bridge, the Tower of London (Crown Jewels) and the Thames River easy to reach.

The apartment is situated on a quiet one-way street but is just around the corner from hundreds of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, gyms, parks, tennis courts and other fitness facilities all within a short walking distance.

Getting around
The apartment is located about a 5-6 minute walk from the local metro/subway station – Tower Hill, which is in Zone 1 (the most central area) on the Circle (yellow) and District (green) lines. There are also lots of bus connections going into the City of London, as well as buses to take you to Fleet Street, Oxford Street and beyond. Canary Wharf is also conveniently accessed either by DLR (overground train) or the bus, or a leisurely stroll along the Thames riverfront.
If you really want to live like a local, there is always the option of hiring one of the thousands of blue 'Boris' bikes available in the city centre - there are three bike docking stations just around the corner!
