Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: London Heathrow or Gatwick - Gatwick has trains direct to Victoria so is easier - LHR 16 miles / LGW 26 miles

London is a world city and from the apartment you can easily walk to many attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster, Tate Britain and the London Eye as well as to local shops, restaurants, markets, parks and the river Thames.
Locally in the Pimlico and Victoria area we have excellent restaurants including Lorne and A Wong (a Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant). There is a food market on Tachbrook Street and lots of independent shops and cafes as well as a large Sainsbury's supermarket nearby.
Many London attractions have limited their visitor numbers and are doing timed tickets booked in advance so do check if there is anywhere you particularly wanted to visit.
We are located between Victoria and Pimlico underground stations and on several bus routes.
Victoria railway station and Victoria coach station are both a short walk from the apartment, with Waterloo station slightly further away. Victoria coach station has direct coach services to most of Britain.
London Gatwick airport has easy access by train to Victoria railway station and is the quickest and easiest airport to reach from the apartment.
London Heathrow airport has a direct coach service to Victoria, is on the Piccadilly underground line or can be accessed via Paddington railway station. Luton and Stansted airports take longer to reach.
