About this listing

Lovely, excellently-located garden flat close to Tower Bridge (10-15 minute walk) and the Tower of London.

The flat is spread over 2 floors (ground and basement) of a Victorian house. On the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen and breakfast bar, leading into a living room complete with dining table. The living room leads out to a large whitewashed private garden, with table and chairs and gas barbecue.

Downstairs are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The flat sleeps 4, and there is a single air bed for a 5th person.

TV and cable are provided, as is WiFi. There is a DVD player and TV in the master bedroom. There is a stereo system into which an iPod can be plugged. There is gas central heating and on demand hot water. There is a washer dryer and dishwasher in the kitchen.

Nearest tube station is Tower Hill (District and Circle line) - 10 min walk.

Closer still is Shadwell station (1-2 min walk), which is on both the Docklands Light Railway and the London Overground line, and connects to the tube line at Bank and Tower Hill.

There is also a great bus route to the City and West End, perfect for sightseeing and shopping (No.15 bus). No need for an expensive tourist bus!

The 'olde' world of Wapping is a 10 min walk away, right on the River Thames and home to London's oldest pubs.

Next to Wapping is St. Katherine Docks, a marina next to Tower Bridge. You can take a boat trip from here along the Thames. Spitalfields Market and Shoreditch are 15-20 min walk away (or 2 stops on the train) where you are spoilt for great bars and restaurants.

Whenever possible, either my husband Daniel or myself will be hosting but as we live between New York and London, we may not always be around. If we're not here, my sister and her husband live 5 minutes away and will be on hand to let you in and answer any questions you may have. Equally, I am always contactable by email and phone.

We have many baby-related items which can be provided if requested (travel cot, bedding, toys, bath mat, plastic cups and plates, potty, booster seat etc). Do let us know if you need any of these items.

A well-equipped, comfortable apartment in the centre of London. Great place to stay and discover the city. Carolyn provided detailed information about things within and outside of the house

This was our first time using AirBnB and Carolyn was such a helpful and gracious host. She explained everything about the flat upon check-in and provided tons of information regarding the area and getting around London. The flat is within a 5 minute walk if the overground line and made a great base for getting around London. We enjoyed the walk to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. We would definitely book this flat again.

The apartment is very comfortable, clean and exactly like the description & pictures. We were with 4 persons and had enough space. So we've had a very pleasant stay. On first sight we thought that the location wasn't that great. But it turned out we were close to cool areas like Shoreditch and Wapping.

Would stay here again! Recommend to everyone. Carolyn and her husband are very pleasant, easy to communicate with, and helpful if any problems. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and clean with a lovely garden in the backyard. The beds were very comfortable, the shower was equipped with towels and toiletries and every part of the kitchen was in full working order. We were able to do a load of laundry as well! The accommodations are very family friendly and excellent for large groups. The location is close to the tube, bus, and walkable to The Tower Bridge and the London Tower. We highly recommend this place to anyone who will stay in London and we would definitely come back again! Thanks very much to Carolyn and her husband.

I stayed at Carolyn's for 8nights and we had great time there. So convenient with public transportation and nice neighborhoods. Everything we needed was perfectly equipped in the kitchen or everywhere in the house and the little garden from the back door is so nice for freshing up in the morning. It was just so great!!

Also walkable is Spittalfield Market, St Katherines Dock, Tower Of London- the list goes on! Very comfortable flat. Cosy beds with clean linen. Perfect living dining and kitchen area well equipped with everything you might need. Would highly recommend *****

Carolyn User ProfileCarolyn is a superhost.

I'm Carolyn, a lawyer, and I live between London and New York with my husband and two little boys. I'm English, my husband Danny is a New Yorker, and we live in both of our countries because we love both places and can't choose between them! So for now, we travel back and forth and rack up a lot of air miles. We rent out our London home to Airbnb guests when we are not there. So it's a working home with everything you could need for a comfortable stay! We hope you love staying there as much as we do.
