There is a discreet rope barrier installed on the the staircase. Please use this if you would like some privacy and we will do our best not to ensure that you are not disturbed. Equally, if the rope is across, we kindly ask that you do not use the upstairs kitchen, lounge or garden areas.

Located in the very heart of London, within the fashionable Borough area, which centres around Borough Market. The market is now the 3rd most popular tourist attraction in London and is described by Time Out London as a 'foodies' paradise' with an array of fantastic quality restaurants and food stalls.
A leisurely walk along the river from Borough Market opens up the South Bank, the cultural heart of London, home to some of its most iconic attractions including the London Eye, TATE Modern, Design Museum, HMS Belfast, Royal Festival Hall, British Film Institute cinemas and the National Theatre.
The townhouse is within minutes of London's newest iconic landmark: the Shard - designed by acclaimed architect Renzo Piano, this is Western Europe's tallest building, where you can experience an astonishing 360 degree view of London from 244m above ground.
Some further exploration on the weekend around the historic railway arches in the nearby Bermondsey Street antiques area will reveal London's newest foodie secret: Maltby Street and Ropewalk market, a lively street market with a combination of stalls, under-arch shops, pop-up bars and eateries.

We are also very proud of both London and our house, and love Airbnb as it lets us share both with other nice people! We are always keen to help you have the best trip to London, whether it be finding the best local restaurant, the fastest way to a meeting, or a special extra touch for a romantic weekend away.
Jamie : I’m sociable and friendly, but know when people need their own space. Enthusiastic, open minded, and sporty, with a love of politics. Passionately British, but not eccentric! I spend most of my time trying to resist ski expeditions, kite surfing trips, or water-skiing. I like to think that I can get on with anyone, from any background and any age.
Eric : I'm a friendly guy that loves pulling pranks on my boyfriend Jamie. I am a proud Australian and have lived in London for nearly 2 years. I have a terrible travelling bug that grows everyday within me. I love my premier league and support Arsenal. *CONTROVERSIAL* I also enjoy a night out on the town, so I can recommend where to go, for a good time.
If you have any questions, just ask.
