Central London - Homely and secure

Apartment - Private room · Longleat House, Rampayne Street, London, London SW1V2TG, United Kingdom

The Space

Really, really, central in SW1, only two minutes to the Victoria Line subway, we offer a comfortable, clean single room in a warm, quite, secure flat located close to Tate Britain.

We have a pleasant courtyard garden with BBQ, which looks out on green trees in a pedestrain square. Internet, weekly cleaner, etc all inlcuded with friendly well travelled professional family.

The best thing about this place is the central location. It is so quick to get anywhere in central London from here. Guests can hear Big Ben striking from their bed!

We are very well positioned here for most London sights. it is a 20 minute walk to Trafalgar Square through St James Park, but the best way to reach most attractions is to walk along the Thames Path. I really like walking along the River, it is quick and really interesting. Vauxhall is the nearest point and it is then quite quick to walk along the Thames to Westminster and the South Bank. There is a pier at Vauxhall and at Tate Britain for boats too. One my favorites is Tate 2 Tate which goes from just round the corner at Tate Britain to Tate Modern. I think the River is a great way to see London.

Pimlico Tube is 300 meters away and is in Zone One on the Victoria Line. We are very well placed for the various airports. It is just up the Victoria Line to St. Pancres for the train to Paris or the Heathrow Express. The Gatwick express comes into Victoria which is one stop away. So it couldn't be easier for international travellers.

the Victoria Line goes straight to Green Park ( 2 stops) for Piccadilly and Oxford Circus ( 3 stops).

The buses are a 24 which goes from Pimlico to Westminster Abby , Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and ends up on Hampstead Heath! I always send guests on this for a cheap orientation to the main sights.

The No 2 bus goes straight to Selfridges!!!!!! and Oxford Street , well that's a consumer trap..........and the 36 and 436 goes to Oxford Street too.

The best though is that the no. 360 goes straight from here to the Museums ie the V & A and the Natural History Museum via Sloane Square and the Saatchi Gallery.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Phillida was a very friendly and helpful host and made my first time with Airbnb a very good experience. She provided maps and directions to places and even walked me to the subway station that was literally around the block from her home. It is an extremely convenient location and I would recommend staying in her home to anyone. Thank you Phillida!

  • Phillida was such a wonderful host for my short stay in London. Her home was so lovely, and she made me feel so incredibly welcome. I would highly recommend a stay with her for anyone travelling and staying in London!

  • Phillida is a wonderful, generous host who has a room in a fantastic location in London. I was able to stay with her for 5 or 6 days while in town for work, and was very pleased with both the room and the fact that i could grab a city bike to the center for only a pound. I would be happy to stay at Phillida's place again if I found myself back in London. Thanks a lot for your help!

We are a relaxed family of two older professionals with four adult children, one of whom is resident with us here in London. The others are spread around the globe from NYC to the antipodes. We have lived on four continents but now enjoy a settled life here in the heart of London surrounded by our books and friends. We enjoy everything about London. John walks everyday to work in Whitehall, while Phillida walks to our local market to stock up on our local goodies.
