About this listing
Are you interested in staying in an apartment overlooking the Thames, with Tower Bridge to your right and Canary Wharf to your left? Would you also like to be about 20 minutes from most of London’s sites of interest? Maybe you would like to take the 10 minute stroll past Butler's along the banks of the Thames to Tower Bridge with its famous restaurants? There are a wide variety of museums, restaurants, shops and other points of interest within easy walking distance, including the famous Bermondsey Antiques Market. If this sounds like your type of holiday/vacation, then this is the place you've been looking for.
Located south of the Thames River in Bermondsey, the village location of the Charles Dickens novel, Oliver Twist, this spacious, two-bedroom apartment [of about 1300 square feet] is on the 6th floor in a modern development with elevator for easy access. The apartment has 24-hour security, CCTV, concierge, a fitness center and parking upon request. Bermondsey Underground/ 'subway' Station, is only a short walk from the apartment. It is on the Jubilee Line, the newest & most modern of all the London 'Tube' lines. You can reach all areas of London & many attractions out of the city, like Windsor Castle, Wimbledon, Heathrow Airport, via the Underground 'Tube' system and nearby train stations.
The Bermondsey Tube Station boasts not only all modern conveniences, but also some of the most helpful staff on the Underground network. This is, perhaps, because Bermondsey still has a community feeling which has died out in many other area of London. In addition to the Underground service, there are also frequent bus services nearby which will take you to many areas of the capital such as the London Eye observation wheel, Parliament, 'Big Ben', St. Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and the Tate Modern and other world-class museums, to name a few. The 02 arena is short tube ride away.
