Stephen is a Londoner and is fully prepared to share his intimate knowledge of the great city. The apartment is adjacent to The Narrow an excellent Gordon Ramsey restaurant and is within walking distance of many more fine pubs and restaurants. The local is The Grapes which is owned by Sir Ian McKellen who lives next door and uses it frequently. Stephen will be only too willing to guide his guests along the Thames to many hidden gems that many tourists or visitors would miss.

The Thames Clipper river bus will glide you to The Houses of Parliament in 20 minutes and the Tate Modern in 15 minutes or Festival Hall on the South Bank 5 minutes further west. There is a fascinating Thames path which Stephen uses often and the adjacent Limehouse basin has two Victorian canals which lead to Regents Park or eastwards to the Olympic Park. There are good train links to City airport offering flights to many European destinations and Heathrow and Gatwick are only an hour away. The location offers a great destination for any traveller wanting to see many new facets of London.

The river bus station is seven minutes walk. Many of London's attractions can be reached by taking the regular service along the river.
Cleanliness, politeness and happiness are all that is asked.
About the Host, Stephen
I am a London based middle aged real estate professional who enjoys art, theatre, food and travel. So far Namibia and Iceland are the most amazing locations visited. I'm a friend of the Royal Academy, Tate Gallery and Bankside gallery and take great comfort and energy from a wide range of art. As a member of the South Bank's Festival Hall and The Barbican I enjoy listening to the contemporary and classical music there and other new venues such as Kings Place. Being a "baby boomer" Led Zepplin, the Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Joe Cocker are favourites but Amy Winehouse and Bellowheads are also on the playlist. As a Londoner I'm constantly surprised at the new vibrancy it offers and old charm of historic locations. I love exploring the city and am prepared to share this knowledge with visitors.
