and in one of the best spots in London right slap bang next to St Paul's Cathedral. EVERYWHERE easily accessible.
2 bedrooms, but sleeps up to 6 ... Why wouldn't you?

Die Unterkunft
A bright and airy 2 bedroom 2nd floor, flat tucked away in the heart of Olde London 3 minutes walk from the magnificent and iconic St Pauls Cathedral at the brow of the hill and the River Thames at the bottom.

Check out our reviews - the one thing that everyone comments on is the superb location!

A 3 minute stroll takes you to the Millennium Bridge for pedestrian access across the river to the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the London Eye, The Houses of Parliament, Borough market, street entertainers and all the buzz of the Southbank.
To the East, the Bank of England and The City with its blend of old buildings and state of the art high rises, some of which are open to the public with stunning views over London. Tower Bridge and the Tower of London are a 15 minute walk.
To the West, the West End - Buckingham Palace (5 stops on the tube from Blackfriars), Soho, Oxford Street (3 stops on the tube from St Pauls), Covent Garden, theatres, clubs, shops, noise, crowds etc.
All easily accessible on foot or by an abundance of public transport, or - our favourite - the brilliant London bike hire scheme, known locally as "Boris bikes". (£2 to hire for 24 hours!)

Blackfriars Station - 2 minutes walk away - gives access to both the Underground and main line rail network, North to Kings Cross and the international trains, or South if you just fancy a day out on the coast in Brighton. Also a direct service to and from Gatwick and Luton Airport. (Stanstead Airport is direct to Liverpool Street Station. From there it is a short hop on the Central Line to St. Paul's station and then a 5 minute walk.)

A popular stopping off point for London ghost walks the area is all little streets and alleyways largely ignored and unknown even to the hundreds of City workers who fill the neighbourhood during working hours.


Without a doubt the most striking feature of this property is the huge sash windows which run the whole way round the curving frontage of the building giving an exceptional light and airy feel to every room..

Beautiful art deco mirrors in both double bedrooms accentuate the feel of space. Faux chandeliers in the polished wood hallway give a bright, friendly welcome and lead you to the main living room with it's oversized clock face (on loan from Big Ben) and its mix of colourful and eccentric furnishings.
A double bed in each bedroom, and a futon sofa in the living room which folds out to provide an extra double bed if required, allows the flat to sleep 6 people if you don't mind sharing. (We also have a travel cot available for those travelling with infants.)

To keep you in touch with the 21st century a 42" TV and WiFi broadband are provided. Kitchen equipped to cover most needs - fridge/freezer, coffee machine, dish washer, washing machine, gas hob, electric oven, toaster, microwave and all the usual mod cons.
Shower over bath. Small TV in main bedroom.

Ample towels are supplied, as is an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer.
There should also be a couple of bottles of complimentary wine on your arrival, though let us know if you'd prefer beer or soft drinks.

There is a lift so accessible for elderly, disabled or just plain lazy.

Just one thing to be aware of - you're right in the middle of the City.
It can be noisy!
There is a pub ( a lovely little pub, "Shaws Booksellers") on the ground floor of the building, another right across the road and yet another just down the hill. They can get very busy in the evenings and, especially in the long summer nights, many people congregate outside in the road chatting loudly, often till closing time (11pm)
Also, the garbage trucks tend to do their rounds pretty early in the morning and, just as you're nodding off again, the pub delivery lorries will arrive to drop off beer barrels - a process that seems to require much crashing and shouting.
Oh, and St Pauls Cathedral, barely 200 yards away as the crow flies, has a fine set of bells on it which are rung regularly and especially on Sunday mornings! Personally we love 'em but if they're not your cup of tea then maybe this place is not for you.
(And for some reason the area seems to be a magnet for hundreds of squawky shouty seagulls!)
On the plus side the pubs never stay open past 11 at night and, apart from 1 are completely closed at weekends. Then the whole area is transformed - the City workers are gone and you have the place to yourself. The little surrounding streets and alleyways are empty and peaceful.
(Also we supply earplugs for your use if required)

Generally though you are in a very safe part of Town, compared to the West End. You don't have to watch your back every time you leave the house and the building itself, with only 6 other flats, is pretty secure.

Basically hard to beat in terms of convenience for pretty much anywhere in Town, so if you want a few days sightseeing and a cosy retreat at the end of the day then this is for you.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
Though we don't live full time on the premises, occasionally our little Jack Russell dog helps with the cleaning. She's clean and house trained but if you have allergies let us know and we will ensure the space has a good dog free spell before you arrive.

Lage

London, Vereinigtes Königreich

The City is the hidden gem in London. It is the middle of everything but because so many people want to be in the West End they miss the treats of the East End. As you head West, London is upmarket and very wealthy. As you head East it becomes more bohemian and trendy. The City is where these two worlds meet and 'By the Wardrobe' is the perfect place to start and end your explorations! ( plus, the City doesn't smell as bad as the West End!) Please note; we are above two pubs and opposite another.. it can get noisy especially when the weather is warm and people are outside. We supply earplugs.

Simon and Sheba Cassini are infamous as 2 of London's finest caricaturists and cartoonists. We live in a little wooden house on an island in the Thames - Eel Pie Island - legendary for it's musical heritage from the 1960s, yet unknown to many Londoners. if you fancy a day away from the hussle and bussle of the city, step on a train at Waterloo and 20 minutes later you can be in Twickenham, home to English Rugby, and Home to us. Come and find the Love Shack on Eel Pie Island. You're more than welcome to join us for wine, bonfires and sunsets over the river. (Unless we're out drawing caricatures.) We look forward to meeting you. X

Während deines Aufenthaltes
We will be there to meet and greet you when you arrive .. After that we probably won't see you again unless there's a problem. So you have full use of the flat and have all the privacy of home while you're there. If we can't meet you, due to work commitments, we have an arrangement with the pub downstairs.
