The space
This two bedroom, two bathroom apartment is suitable for up to 4 adults in a queensize bed and either: 2 single beds OR a queensize bed. It is provided with weekly cleaning and broadband. An air conditioning unit is available if needed (see below).

This self-catering apartment is ideal for a short stay for holiday or business. It is just one minute walk from some of the best views of London, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

Across the street is the riverside walkway with the best views of London towards Tower Bridge and the City of London - great at night! You can walk on the riverside upriver passing the Borough Food Market, Southwark Cathedral, Vinopolis, Shakespeare Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, Millennium Bridge (which crosses the river to St Pauls Cathedral). After the Tate Modern, you can then walk on via Blackfriars Bridge past the Oxo Tower to the South Bank Arts Centre and the London Eye - the full walk is very popular and has great views of London all the way.

This is a foodie area, with the Borough Market at London Bridge.

There is also solar film on the windows.

Guest access
Guests are met at an easily findable place near the apartment on arrival, this is to avoid people getting lost. They are asked for an expected time of arrival, to text from the airport or an hour in advance of arrival and when at the meeting point.

Other things to note
This is a hidden gem, probably listed at the end of the listings. Good find! We have been providing apartments since the year 2000, long ago when the world seemed like a bigger place. Now our site is zipstays, and you'll find me at home there.

Location

London, United Kingdom

The general area has lots of people and activity in the day time, and is quieter in the evenings. It is located 30 seconds walk from the riverside, with great views of Tower Bridge. The South Bank walkway extends west to Westminster. In the last 15 years, London Bridge and Tooley Street has become a modern environment, while not losing aspects of the original area. The new riverside development (called More London Place) is beside the Mayor of London's building. There is a Hilton Hotel across the street. Tesco and M&S food and general shops are across the street. There are many restaurants and pubs within 1-3 minutes walk. Check out the George Inn on Borough High Street, the oldest coaching inn in the UK. The area was a stopping place for pilgrims going to Canterbury, and famously associated with Shakespeare and Dickens. The famous Borough Food Market is about 3 minutes walk, the area has traditionally been associated with food imports being at this location on the river. Across London Bridge is the so-called 'City' of London, the financial district and location of the original London city.
Beside the market is Southwark Cathedral. St Pauls Cathedral is within 10-15 minutes walk, opposite Tate Modern and the Shakespeare Globe. There are gyms and pools nearby (not included in rent), including a Hot Yoga space.
Short term parking is available in NCP car parks locally (not included - search online for their information, about £20 for 24 hours). If you are registered, there are short term hourly car rentals available as well as bike rentals.
