Live like a local on the south bank. Avoid tripping over tourists and stay with the rest of us who actually live here. You are walking distance to the most iconic of London sites – yes, Big Ben, Westminster and the London Eye are down the road. Enjoy the convenience of small shops, banks, pubs, restaurants and the renowned Borough Market, all of which are a walk away. St Thomas' Hospital, the Young and Old Vic Theatres are also a short stroll. Blend in and enjoy the high culture of the South Bank Centre and the night life of the Ministry of Sound. You will feel more at home and less like a visitor.
Great apartment. Nice and clean and up to date. Be sure to go to Olivelli restaurant across the street. Easy walk to the Big Ben/Westminster bridge area. Easy access to the Tube. The reason for 4 starts instead of 5 is the corner bar can get a bit noisy at night if you want the windows open. Even with that, I would rent this apartment again.
Kenneth K, August 2017
Read the reviews closely. I did and was not surprised during our stay, but my family members that did not read the reviews were not prepared for the stairs and noise. We experienced warm temperatures and needed to have the windows open; the fans were critical to drown out the outside noise and provide a breeze. With that said, the flat had everything we needed and the multiple levels provided a sense of privacy between the generations. The bedding was super comfortable. The location was perfect for restaurants / take away locations, the underground, and a few sites. C. Summers, July 2017
This flat in Waterloo is in the perfect location, only a couple blocks from the train station, and easy walking to the river, theatres, and London Eye! The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is wonderful, and the bathrooms are modern! What a great spot to visit this beautiful city! Carrie S, June 2017
Great place in a fantastic location. About 5 minute walk to either Waterloo or Southwark tube stations. Place was very clean and spacious, only issue was the amount of stairs but we soon got used to them There were no issues in finding the place or letting ourselves in. We did not see the host at all but they were easily accessible if needed. We did find the street to be quite noisy throughout the night with many restaurants open until early hours of the morning, trucks and regular police sirens but that's all to be expected in such a central location! (The London eye can be seen from the back door!) Would definitely stay here again. Sarah, June 2017
Thank you for your assistance. We truly enjoyed our trip. The accommodations were perfect for our family. We would definitely recommend the London Agent to others. Laura Thomson, April 2017
The apartment was great! It was ready as soon as we arrive, extremely clean and polished, everything was as expected. The location great, walking distance (300 mts) from metro station, close to restaurants, entertainment, however, it the was really quiet and comfortable. Definitely my option for a next time in London! M Loaiza, March 2017
Good host with clear instruction given on check in and check out. The place is near to the underground station so we can reach there by lots of London attractions and it can fits 6 people perfectly. Well done and Good job. Joey Lee, March 2017
Good sized property in a nice area of London, very close to tube stations, restaurants etc. Clean and well equipped, particularly for a longer stay. The lock confused us because the pin opens the lock box and then you have to manually release the padlock. Communication was efficient, clear instructions etc. Definitely felt like a managed property rather than a homely feel, but everything you need. Catherine, March 2017
Appartamento corrispondente alle foto, totalmente privato, dislocato in 4 piani: bagno, soggiorno e cucina, due camere con un letto matrimoniale ciascuna, camera matrimoniale grande con bagno. La cucina è equipaggiata di tutto: lavastoviglie, microonde, tostapane, bollitore, forno, piano cottura a induzione e grande frigo. C'è tutto quello di cui si ha bisogno, e anche di più. La location è meravigliosa, vicino a tutti i servizi: underground, supermercati, pub, ristoranti di ogni tipo. Molto tranquilla la sera. In definitiva è stata un'esperienza fantastica, da consigliare e da riprovare. Giovanni, March 2017
Terrific flat with great access to both Southwark and Waterloo stations. The flat has a great deal of character. Clean, updated bathrooms were very much appreciated as were the oversized towels. There are four levels, so stairs must be navigated. Overall, a very charming apartment. Terry, February 2017
“Very happy with the stay, it was nice to be able to do laundry during our stay. The place was very centralized and easy to access from the tube.” Thavari, February 2017
“I cannot say enough good things about this home. The location of it was prefect for what we were looking for. The tube station is just around the corner and it's only about a 5-10 minuet walk to the London Eye. There is lots of great restaurants and pubs just steps from the front door and a grocery store right across the street. The home itself is very spacious and clean. As other have said, there is lots of narrow stairs which made it a little tricky to get all of the luggage up (but we WAY overpacked so that's our fault) but you only have to take it up once. We had a small issue getting into the lockbox on the gate when we arrived but The London Agent came immediately to help us out which we really appreciated. I've stayed in hotels and hostels all over London but this by far was my favorite and I will be staying here again when I come back. Rendi, February 2017
“Gorgeous apartment in a central area. Great host & communication” I. Motion, Netherlands, November 2016
“This apartment was exactly as described. Lovely setting, homey feeling, great location, clean and safe. The London Agent made checking in very easy for my clients, sending over a detailed email with instructions and information about the flat. I would gladly book here again for myself or my clients and I hope to stay here again soon! Thank you, The London Agent!" Andrew Mishko, November 2016
Excellent flat in a great neighborhood within walking distance to the Tate Modern and the London Eye. Especially loved the convenience of being so close to a Sainsburys and plenty of coffee options - literally just across the street. In the early morning there was a good amount of noise seeping through the walls from what sounded like a neighboring restaurant, but it was noticeable mostly from the main living area and not so much the bedrooms. Overall, I'd highly recommend this spot and would rent again in a heartbeat. Patrick Shen, November 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at the Comfortable Waterloo Home. The location really can´t be beat - were we able to walk to the major attractions in very little time and two Tube stations are steps away. At the same time, we felt like we were able to get away from the heavy tourist presence in the city when we returned to the flat at night. There were plenty of pubs, restaurants, and mini-supers close-by for convenience, and lots of people in the street. During happy hour with open windows we felt very much in the middle of things, but by bedtime the street was quiet. The flat´s description is very apt - it was indeed very comfortable. There were five of us staying and we felt very lucky to have found an affordable 3 bedroom home that allowed us each a bit of privacy. The kitchen was well-equipped (and the kids were delighted to find boxes of tea left by previous guests in every cupboard and on every shelf!) with more than enough plates, coffee mugs, cutlery and cookware. The bedrooms were very comfortable with plenty of fresh linens and a fan in each. And towels - there were lots of great fluffy towels. As an added bonus there were lots of hangers in every closet - a definite treat. The wireless was very reliable and there were plenty of electrical outlets to plug our many devices. We were a bit surprised by the layout of the flat, which is 4 levels in total. Lots of stairs involved, even to use the bathroom. It was not a problem for us - in fact, we liked the layout because the bedrooms were well away from the social space - but a person with limited mobility may find the space challenging. We were well-prepared by the London Agent Team for our arrival with clear instructions about access and how to use the appliances, and enjoyed great customer service in the months leading up to our trip. We will definitely plan to stay in the same flat on our next visit to London. Many thanks to the London Agent Team! Samantha, September 2016
This apartment was a great find. The neighborhood was bustling with a great coffee shop right across the street. The bathrooms were really nice as were the bedrooms. We didn’t eat in but the kitchen would have accommodated cooking a nice meal. We really loved the outdoor patio. Would definitely stay there again. Karen, July 2016
We have had a wonderful stay at the Waterloo home. We've followed your instructions and hopefully all have been completed satisfactorily. Thank you again for your support particularly with the prompt attention to the router. We all enjoyed the Pantone. We found Waterloo to be an ideal base to explore London and the property a lovely home away from home. We would love to stay here again when next in London. Wendy, December 2015
We had a great stay to the waterloo home, and only wish I could have been longer. I would recommend this house to anyone. Steve Connor, October 2015
Came in town with a group of guys to attend the Rugby World Cup 2015, Flat was convenient to everything and extremely comfortable. Within easy walking distance of either Southwark or Waterloo Tube/Train stations and numerous services close by, across the street, or below including a grocery store, coffee shops, ATM, and numerous restaurants of all types and all quite good. But the best was the Pub downstairs where we watched all the Rugby matches we didn't attend. Flat itself extremely comfortable, clean, and accessible, with three comfortable beds and an (available) inflatable air mattress, which we ended up needing! Kitchen more than adequate and washer/dryer very useful too. London Agent Booking Agency extremely efficient and easy to deal with. Sent detailed emails in a timely manner and explained everything. Flagged down questions when needed. will stay with them again without hesitation! Can't wait to come back for the Six Nations! Charles Singleton, October 2015
Thank you for the very good service. The flat was beautiful and the location - central but peaceful - was excellent! Best regards, Pirkko, June 2015
Such an interesting area to stay! We loved being able to walk to so many of the famous sights in London. The flat was comfortable and we felt we had lots of room to move around in. Thankyou London Agent, I am happy to recommend this rented home. Andrea Nesbit, March 2015
A wonderfully convenient, comfortable and spacious dwelling. Even in the height of winter it is warm and cosy. A fantastic property indeed. Steve from Australia, February 2015.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement, très bien situé, équipé, décoré , bravo !! très très bon séjour, merci Danny Pico, September 2014
I especially loved being on the south bank as there is so much to do there. Also many restaurants and shops close by which is really convenient. We enjoyed the sunshine and London and so did our friends staying with us. Thanks again… Melanie and Andy Gardener, August 2014
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Southbank! The location was steps away from the southwark tube station, the local market and a dozen shops, restaurants and bars. the cut is a lively street and quite active with the theaters, while it felt quite small, intimate and safe at the same time. it was perfect to be within walking distance to the thames and the southbank and a short tube ride away from the theatre district, hyde park and greenwich to name a few that we visited, ideal for a family of 5 with 3 kids under 12. Our flat was very quaint, clean and cozy. the hardwood floors, the narrow stairwell and the large windows added to it’s charm! the windows gave the spaces nice light, air and interaction with the street. the appliances in the kitchen and bathrooms were quite modern and easy to use. there were fans in each room which helped with the (i’m told) unusual heat of our london summer visit! Correspondence with the london agent was very professional and timely during the times of booking, arrival and check out. i didn’t realize that i needed to switch on the router at the wall, so i couldn’t connect to the wifi initially. after reading previous reviews, i asked the restaurant downstairs for their code. they were so nice they gave us theirs! the london agent did tell us about getting the code from the bottom of the router, but connecting doesn’t work if you don’t switch it on first! lol, gotta figure in that user error! thank you london agent for making our first overseas vacation rental easy and fun. Kim Viernes, August 2014
Thank you London Agent. We will make sure we leave the apartment as requested. We are very impressed with the apartment, it is close to shops, beautifully appointed, very clean and yes, very comfortable. Not used to so many stairs though……. Rikki Johnson, May 2014
We spent 8 nights at the property and found it to be wonderfully located near the Waterloo and Southwark tube stations and just short rides to almost anywhere in London! The flat is well furnished that our multi-generation family of 6 found very comfortable. Plenty of grocery and restaurants in the neighborhood nearby. We had a great stay. Larry Rager, April 2014
Our experience was marvelous. The flat was well equipped with all mod cons, cleaning agents and stocked up with basic food items which was terrific for us who were coming from abroad. We only had to do shopping for fresh foodstuffs. The area was safe and close to major tourist attractions and shopping areas. Yes i would definitely recommend this property to family visitors, in fact when we come to London again we will definitely use the London Agent! Thank you, we had a wonderful stay. Mutende, March 2014
This was a great stay, very handy to 3 tube stations, plenty of restaurants and food shopping close by. It has three good size rooms and was very livable. Liam from USA, November 2013
Great value and location! We loved this apartment. It was very central to all attractions in London. The train station and mini mart were at our doorstep. It was very clean and well presented. Arriving and departing was made easy. I would have no hesitation recommending this apartment. It was value for money for a group or family. By Michelle from Melbourne, Australia
Comfortable Waterloo Home was a great stay for our family of 4 adults, for a week. The facilities are of high standard and the extensive appliances and utensils provided, all made for a comfortable stay in London. Double glazing of the front window ensured a good nights sleep , however the 'passing parade" and street acivities were a added attraction !!! Very clean and good access o the Tube at Southwark or Waterloo, made the location easy. Thanks, David and Julie, August 2013
There are a lot of stairs here, but if that doesn't bother you it is a great place to stay. It was clean, modern, and has everything you need to set up house. The beds were comfortable, as was the living room / dining room. Good water flow and plenty of hot water. The electricity was weird to us, but just read the book on it and take the purple key to the correct store and Top It Off as needed. Pubs, grocery, and restaurants are literally just a few steps away from the door, and tube and railway stations are just a few hundred yards away. Get a weeks Oyster Card for bus, railway, and tube throughout zones 1, 2, 3 for 35 pounds, pick up a tube map and get all around London easily. A walk to Waterloo bridge and the Eye. There is a pub downstairs that can be quite noisy, but they close by 2330 so they didn't bother us since we usually stayed up until midnight or so. But if you go to bed early, this could be problem. Joe Blumenthal, June 2013
Easy to book and was kept in touch at all times. Close to tube and railway. Excellent facilities inside the home and handy patio out the back to catch the afternoon sun.Lots of good restaurants and convenience stores across the road.The smell from the fast food place next door was noticeable but not overpowering. By Andy from Cambooya, June 2013
The Flat was exactly as advertised. Clean. Simple, yet modern furnishings. There were six of us and we were very comfortable. The Flat is located in a very convenient location in between Southwark and Waterloo Underground stations. It is close to a variety of restaurants plus a small Sainsbury grocery store right across the street as well. 10-15 minute walk to the Thames and many key attractions such as Big Ben, London Eye, and Globe Theatre. Although not a problem for us, there are four flights of narrow stairs within the Flat, so that is something to consider. A bath/toilet on the first level, the kitchen and living room on the 2nd level, 2 bedrooms on the next floor, and finally another Bedroom and bath on top floor. Plus there was a nice outdoor patio as well. We would recommend this highly, especially to those who need room for 6.
We loved the Waterloo home! I booked the location for my family of 6 six adults for our week-long vacation in London. With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the size was perfect. We had unusually cold weather during our week-long stay, so the heaters in every room and the extra down comforters in the closet were greatly appreciated! Even with the extra need for heater use, we still had plenty of electricity, so did not need to worry about topping it up. The wi-fi was occasionally spotty, but overall worked well enough. Street noise was minimal with the windows closed. I am a light sleeper, but slept soundly with earplugs. As previous guests have mentioned, there are 6 flights of stairs within the flat, which might be difficult for someone with mobility issues, though wasn't problematic for us. The flat was spotless, and has been beautifully renovated. The pictures on the website match the flat's appearance perfectly. There were plenty of towels and a hairdryer in each bathroom - which was a bonus. The location was perfect for us. The Waterloo tube station and the Southwark tube station are incredibly close - each is less than a 5 minute walk! There is a nice coffee-shop just below the flat, and a key-cutting/hardware store next door which was a great place to buy a sim card for our i-phone. Grocery store and aTM are right across the street. After a day out in the city, we loved coming home to our warm, quiet flat each evening. We would definitely stay here again! Audrey, San Francisco, April 2013
Fantastic location, great place for families! Stayed here with 2 families was great. Had read reviews about electricity usage before we left was worried we would have to pay but with 3 kids and 3 adults in one of the coldest weeks in March using the heater and dryer we never ran out once. Stayed here for 9 nights perfect location with walking distance to Waterloo station giving access to anywhere in London. Close walking distance to major attractions such as London Eye and Big Ben. Plenty of places to eat in close proximity and grocery store across the street. Definitely stay here again and recommend. Aussie traveller, April 2013
Good location, clean and spacious apartment. Everything is good. Perfect! Kevin Ng, March 2013
The service was excellent and everything was made easy for me to meet up and collect my key. The house was in excellent condition and clean. Location was brilliant and there are plenty of shops, eating places nearby. Gary Beazley, February 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here as we were in town for business nearby. There are plenty of shops below the flat which make it very convenient to grab a bite to eat or a drink. Just a minute's walk from the nearest tube station and plenty of cabs passing by at all times made it easy to get around! My only advise to the renting agent is to state honestly that there is no wifi provided by the flat itself and rather that we must go downstairs to the cafe directly below to ask for the internet passcode. This was a problem as we arrived after the cafe had closed and the code provided by the rental agency booklet in the flat was not the current password. As we were there for work this could have been a very bad situation but fortunately the shop down below was still open and we were able to pay for wireless (the connection from the shop in our flat was very weak but at least we were able to get some work done, albeit slowly!) p.s. view of the Eye of London from the patio was a plus! Jessica M, San Francisco, December 2012
We are absolutely amazed. We loved the apartment, lovely conditions, perfectly clean. The area is the kind of area we love, so where we wanted to be. Elle was pretty lovely, kind and helpful. So nothing we can say but it's been perfect. Thank you very much and count on us to come back. Have a happy New Year! Ignacio Perez Pardo, December 2012
This letting exceeded our expectations. It is spacious; in a great location and simply/tastefully furnished -- as well as having functional comforts like kitchenware and towels in abundance. Well worth the cost. Jonathan, UK, Nov 2012
Very speedy and competent information, communication - would recommend The London Agent to anybody looking for a visit to London. The surrounding area of the house is great for anything: a small super market just across the road. Downstairs a diner (breakfast/lunch), a Chinese restaurant next door, a recommendable Indian restaurant across the street. Waterloo Station is about 2 mins walk. London Eye about 10 mins walk. If I would ever return with my family for a London-visit I would once again choose this house! Wiebke Harms, October 2012
Service was excellent and through. The London Agent we managed to find a wonderful short-term rent at very short notice! The apartment is excellent. Brilliant location, lovely decor, plenty of space. It felt like a home from home. Just what we needed after a hard day at work (we were in London for a conference). Caroline Morton-Gallagher, October 2012
The great comport and sweest home.this apart convinience for riding underground and bus.If you use more electrical Quotas up the electricity supply is interrupted. If you want to continue to use electricity,Charge should go to the store near.Except this,great home and comportable home. Shin Hu, South Korea, October 2012.
The perfect place to stay for our family trip to London. The apartment was big, clean and close to many shops, restaurants and tube stations. The communication with Jennifer was easy. We would recommend to stay at the Waterloo home. Peter, Germany, Oct 2012.
Het is een fantastisch appartement: smaakvol en functioneel ingericht, met veel handdoeken, keukenspullen en andere nuttige zaken. De slaapkamers liggen op de bovenste twee verdiepingen en zijn allemaal ruim; de badkamers zijn ook ruim en praktisch ingericht. Heerlijke douche. De ligging van het appartement is uitstekend en heel gezellig: in een levendige straat met levensmiddelenwinkels, restaurants, pubs en zelfs theaters. Twee metrostations echt vlakbij. Onder het appartement is een soort oosterse lunchroom waar ze heerlijke wraps, sandwiches etc verkopen. Aardige mensen. Jennifer Bell is zeer behulpzaam en ze reageert snel en adequaat op vragen. This is a fantastic apartment: tasteful and functional furniture, lots of towels, plenty of plates, cups, glasses, silverware and other cookware. The bedrooms are at the two topfloors; the two bathrooms are downstairs and at the topfloor. Great shower. The apartment is situated in a lively street with foodstores, restaurants, pubs and even two theatres. Two underground stations nearby. On the groundfloor of the building is an eastern lunchroom which sells great wraps, sandwiches etc. Nice people. Jennifer Bell is very nice as well; she's been very helpful and attentive. She responds quickly and adequately at questions. Chantal, Netherlands, October 2012.
"Comfortable, spacious and close to Underground"
We (3 adults and a 16 year old) spent 8 nights in October 2012 in this property and can recommend this to anybody who wants to have a more comfortable accommodation than a hotel room.
The house has 3 bedrooms, of which 2 are on the third floor and 1 is on the fourth floor. This sounds like a high-rise building, but it is actually a very narrow house.
Entering from the street into a hallway which leads to the main door, you will find a bathroom (tub/shower, 2 wash basins, washer/dryer) first, before continuing another stair to living room/kitchen (induction oven, dishwasher,fridge, enough cutlery, plates, glasses, pots etc). The living room has a sofa, dinner table, 6 chairs, a flatscreen TV. Upstairs from this, there are 2 b`rooms with 1 bed each (ok for 2 people each). On the top floor there's another bedroom and bathroom (shower/washbasin - no tub).
Windows can be opened in every room. There are plenty sockets in every room, hair dryers in both bathrooms. There is no stuff from people living there permanently, it's a perfect place for 4-6 people for a vacation.
Wi-Fi is however not part of the flat, but one may use the Wi-Fi of the downstairs deli (go and ask for password in exchange for a breakfast :)). Electricity was an unusual procedure for us and horrendously expensive. We spent GBP 38 für 8 nights, although we never had the heating on and were gone most of the day. You have to take a "key" to a nearby store to top up the amount.
The apartment is surrounded by small restaurants (Chinese, Italian, Indian), several small super markets which are open until late and two train stations (Waterloo Station for real trains and Underground and many busses) and Southwark on Jubilee Line. Both stations are 2 min walk away. Heathrow can be reached within 70 mins with 1 change of trains for less than GBP 6.
We would recommend this place to anybody visiting London for several days. However the smell from the downstairs deli was not so nice and the stairs are steep. By Wiebke from Stuttgart, Germany Oct 2012.
The whole process was smooth and effective. Jennifer was fantastic and helped us with information on the area and arranged the key for us upon arrival, directly at the flat. The flat is in a perfect position and is quite large. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, spread over 4 floors. The place is in a great spot for getting to the city (by foot), South London and most London areas (quickly by tube), and the great cafes and markets in the Borough and Bermondsey area are not far away. The apartment is very modern and very clean. It sits on a street with a range of food and entertainment options and is a very short walk to either Southwark or Waterloo station if you wanted to venture further for dinner. There is small deck with a BBQ, TV with plenty of cable stations, as well as a very modern kitchen.... and importantly after a few weeks in Europe, a very good Washing Machine and Dryer. The only negative with the apartment if there was one, is that it got very hot. I can't see this as a major issue in the Winter or most months in London for that matter. However we did have a couple of hot days in the 2 weeks we were there and had to leave the majority of windows and doors open to air and cool down the house. All in all, the house and the host were fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit London for a short or long stay. Aaron from Australia, August 2012
I got a fairly good service from the london agent. I had to make a last minute change to our trip plans, and they accomodate it well, though at a cost. You get for what you pay for, at comfortable waterloo home, we got slightly better deal. The property is located at a walking distance to the waterloo rail and tube station, which is very convenient. The house is well equipped with good quality appliances, cutlery, towels and bedding. Abdul Kharim, August 2012

Service was excellent and thorough. The London Agent managed to find a wonderful short-term rent at very short notice! The apartment is excellent. Brilliant location, lovely decor, plenty of space.

If you are lucky enough to be located on the fashionable South Bank of the river Thames as you are here, you will be within a short walk of Westminster Bridge, The London Eye and the South Bank Centre.
Waterloo is so much more than a busy transport hub. It is very popular with tourists and visitors for it’s convenient transport links and its close proximaty to so many attractions and places of interest. The first bridge on this site was built in the 1800’s and was named to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Because of a handy bend in the river, the views of London from this bridge are fine indeed! The Kinks famous song Waterloo Sunset has immortalised this bridge and view forever and it is one of the best popular songs ever written about a particular part of London. The last verse tells of two young lovers meeting by the underground in the evening and crossing the bridge: “as long as they gaze on Waterloo sunset, they are in paradise…”
Locally there are excellent restaurants, the well known Vinopolis and Borough Market for food and wine. There are some of London's best theatres within walking distance or a short bus ride including the National Theatre, the National Film Theatre, the Old Vic, the Young Vic, the Meunier Chocolate Factory and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
The Southbank Centre and Tate Modern ensure that this is now the premier location in London for arts and entertainment. The South Bank Centre sits happily on a 21 acre site and includes The Royal Festival Hall, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Purcell Room, The Hayward Gallery and the Poetry Library, as well as shops, cafes and bars. Tate Modern is always popular and rightly so. What was once the Bankside Power Station was amazingly transformed into this breath-taking modern art gallery with it's huge Turbine Hall and rooms full of modern art in all it's styles and colours. This is a wonderful place to visit for all generations.
Other prime attractions are the Millennium Bridge to St. Paul's Cathedral, HMS Belfast, Bermondsey Antique Market, Tower Bridge and the Imperial War Museum. Wander through Dickensian London to Southwark Cathedral and pop in to the Florence Nightingale museum.
Waterloo Station in handy for access to the South East of England by train and it has many tube lines. You are ideally placed here for quick and easy access to the West End and the City. There are plenty of underground stations to choose from here, a frequent bus service and a regular river boat to Greenwich, Canary Wharf or Westminster.
This is a vibrant, historical and bustling part of London that is rich in culture and heritage. It is filled with sights, attractions, markets, theatre, art and good places to eat, not forgetting the great River Thames flowing steadily by.
