There are a lot of neighbourhoods in and around London. Here’s a quick run down of the most popular central areas.
South Bank is an ideal spot for accessing the major city centre highlights like the Shard and the London Eye. This location also offers the opportunity to sail down the Thames to awesome destinations including famous museums and fine dining. Ideal for short stay apartments in London where you’re going to be maximising your time.
Soho is the beating heart of London’s nightlife and independent scene. The collection of restaurants, quirky stores, theatres, and cocktail bars guarantees an awesome evening, every evening. If you’re away working during the day, returning home to this vibrant scene can be brilliant.

Known also for its daytime street entertainment, Covent Garden boasts a long list of market stalls, street foods, traditional pubs, artisan bakers, and restaurants.

Families should definitely consider the stunning residential area South Kensington. One of London’s quieter spots, it’s not only filled with beautiful streets and homes, but is a stone’s throw from Kensington Palace, Elizabeth Street (for shopping!) and both the V&A and Natural History museums!
To immerse yourself in London’s true luxury, there’s no place like Mayfair. Stunning boulevards mix with 5-star hotels, boutique stores, and stunning architecture. Le Gavroche is a must-visit, and our apartments here redefine class and style.
Nothing says London like the busy burrows of Camden. From the famous Camden Market to the graffitied streets and strong fusion cuisine, Camden retains an authentic vibe and, while not as luxurious as Mayfair or Kensington, it has a uniquely compelling culture.
Sightseeing and landmarks in London
You could spend a hundred weekends in London and not see it all. Strolling across Westminster Bridge taking in the Thames, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament; climbing the Shard for a panoramic sunset view of the city; catching a live event at the 90,000-seater Wembley stadium; visiting the dozens of award-winning shows, museums, and cultural sights spread all over the city.
London is an incredible melting pot of culture, architecture, and incredible sights. No matter where your new apartment in London is located, you’ll be surrounded by awe-inspiring beauty.
Eating, Drinking, and Leisure
London is famous for its cuisine. And by “its” cuisine, we mean the cuisines of the countless nationalities residing there! There are Michelin Star restaurants in Mayfair, hipster and independent eateries in Soho, spicy curry houses in Spitalfields, the beautifully seasoned Caribbean haunts of Brixton - the list goes on.
We guarantee that within half a mile of your London apartment you’ll find dozens of stunning joints where you can eat your fill and drink it, too.
The London underground is your best bet for quickly navigating the city. No need for Oyster cards (you can simply tap contactless) and incredible apps like Citymapper make planning routes and walking between stations a cinch. Locals can rent apartments in London knowing that even if it’s not close to work, they can commute with ease!
Driving can be tricky in the centre (plus there are congestion charges) and walking is often a quicker approach - at least when it’s sunny!
London offers an incredible opportunity to visit the rest of the country via train. Its numerous train stations will connect you to cities like Bristol (2 hours) and as far as the beautiful Edinburgh (only 4.5 hours), while Heathrow airport will ferry travellers anywhere in the world.
