MOVING AROUND TOWN WITH EASE AND CONFIDENCE
It becomes clear to visitors and tourists right away just how big this city is, even when you stay mainly in the centre when you visit London. Walking is the nicest and easiest way of getting around and many of the most popular and sought after central neighbourhoods are easily explored on foot. Sometimes, however, a bus, a tube or even a cab ride is the way to go. We offer some excellent advice and useful information about the many way of travelling in London, the most convenient and cost effective way to pay your fare and about transport in London in general.
We are rather proud of our short let London area guides. We know that when you plan to visit London and have chosen a short let flat that suits you, you will want to know all about it’s location and surroundings. Or perhaps you have chosen one of our holiday homes specifically because of the neighbourhood it’s in. Either way, it’s important that all the information we provide is accurate, informative and hopefully a little entertaining too. We like to think you get all of these from us as we are local and we know what we are talking about.
THE GREAT OUTDOORS AND THE GREAT INDOORS
Check out our wonderful series of guides about which of the capitals museums and galleries have no entrance fee whatsoever. You will find almost all of the most well known and many of your favourites among them, with some surprises. Then there’s the great and wonderful open green spaces of the capital that come in many types and sizes and everyone looks forward to spending time in when they visit London. It could be an intimate garden square with a bench to sit on, a delightful royal park with ancient trees or a vast rambling heath with roaming deer. We also take you down to the river and on a trip by the canals which is great fun for all the family. Fresh air, wild life, lakes, rivers and trees become even more important when you are in a big, noisy city.
YOUR HOMEWARD JOURNEY
All good things come to an end, and time flies when you’re having fun. Both of these go double when you visit London. We like to make sure that your departure is as stress free as your visit and that you have only good memories of your stay in one of our short lets, including your journey home.
