Also within walking distance are famous attractions like The London Dungeon, The Tower of London and The London Eye.

  • The apartment is fab- the location is brilliant, and the facilities are fantastic, a real home from home. Bermondsey is a really cool place to stay, easy walking distance from London Bridge tube to the apartments, with nice places to eat and drink very close by. Tara and Wendy were great- met us to check in, no problems, left us a bottle of fizz and a big bowl of fruit. Thanks!

  • We've had a lovely holiday at Tara's place. The weather was nice and therefore the terrace was a beautiful place to be. Bermondsey is a wonderful area full of nice restaurants, bars and lovely shops. It is approximately 10 minutes to the tube station and the London tube then brings you everywhere you want to go.
    Tara is a warm and lovely hostess with many tips and willing to help out where possible. All in all we sincerely recommend the apartment.

  • Tara was friendly and easy to communicate with. Wendy was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment. They were great hosts. The apartment was clean and exactly as shown in the photos. The fruit, milk, and champagne were lovely touches. The neighborhood is fun and lively with cafes and pubs, but not too loud. It's a great place! Easy walk to the London Bridge Tube Station.

  • We appreciated being in a flat that is well located on a surprisingly quiet street within easy walking distance of London Bridge tube station and buses . We liked the fact that there were two floors , an open view and a large terrace.Tara was friendly and helpful .We much enjoyed our stay.

  • We were so lucky to stay in this well-appointed apartment on Bermondsey Street in the heart of London and close to so many gastronomical delights. The rooms were spacious and clean, and we enjoyed the tea, coffee, snacks, Prosecco and fresh fruit left by our thoughtful Host. The facilities are good with a dishwasher and washing machine to make the stay even better. Beds were comfortable and towels nicely absorbent! The views from both terraces are spectacular and we enjoyed tea and breakfast on the terrace while watching the world go by. Communication was really easy and I was always speedily responded to if an issue needed clarifying. When we wanted to stay an extra night prior to our original booking, there was no problem as the apartment was available and Wendy came out of her way to meet and greet us at 7pm on our first night, even leaving little phone messages about local shops etc. after she had gone! Nothing was too much trouble. We very much hope to make a return visit in the near future and recommend anyone who wishes to stay in London in a 'home from home' to get in touch with Tara. You won't be disappointed and will find the area a wonderful one from which to explore the Tower Bridge side of the city. We found the break refreshing and care-free. Thanks Tara & Wendy:)

About
I really love living and working in London. Sampling all the delicious foods in the many restaurants, visiting one of the many markets, galleries, parks or plays. Strolling up my road - Bermondsey Street, stopping off at the bustling Antiques Fair and Borough Market. As you can see I like good food, good company in a great spaces. I am adventurous, with a good sense of humour; someone who believes you shouldn't take life too seriously and live it to the ful!
