Incredibly Central London Flat By Tate Modern With Wifi
Spacious, light-filled, one-bedroom Victorian flat in the heart of London. A self-contained apartment which is only a 15-minute walk to the famous Tate Modern, Borough Market, Shakespeare's Globe and London's cultural hub of the Southbank. Excellent transport links. Great for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers and people with an eye for a quirky, cosy flat.
Welcome to Hunter House! The bedroom is light-filled with a dual North/East aspect and views of the impressive Shard building. The bed is double and comes with a great mattress offering a good night's sleep. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooker, washing machine and fridge. The sitting room is spacious with a futon/couch and Sky cable TV. I have central heating throughout the apartment. There is a large bath in the bathroom for extra relaxing times. We're on the top (4th) floor and the building was built in 1899 so there's no lift. But unlike a modern, sterile flat, you will feel really at home here. Queen Victoria was still alive when this block of red brick flats was built in 1899 (she died two years later). It was built for the respectable working classes of the time- when working classes were thought worthy of small design flourishes such wrought iron and simple bas reliefs on the facade of the building. Hunter House is a handsome old lady and she’s strong. Hunter House is one of the few buildings in the area to have survived the bombings of the Blitz during the Second World War. Long may she live!
I will always try to meet you on arrival, but if I'm out of town, my partner Jake will be happy to greet you and get you settled in. During your stay, you'll be able to contact me via email or text if anything crops up. If you have any questions about the area or the flat, please don't hesitate to ask.
You are in the heart of London here at Hunter House and here are some of my favourite local places: FOOD AND DRINK The Cut. A street 7 minutes walk from the flat where I advise guests to chill out on their first night. There are a variety of food and drink places including: The Young Vic - an avant-garde theatre with a fun bar upstairs. The Anchor and Hope - a well-known "gastro pub." Very popular so arrive early. The Culture - good Chinese take-out. Byron Burger- posh burgers in fancy decor. OTHER FOOD IDEAS: Masters Superfish -Not just fish and chips but GOOD fish and chips! (I should know, my father ran a fish and chip restaurant in Cornwall for 35 years!). Lots of London black cab driver eat here (which is a good sign!) and the restaurant is located 5 minutes away. The King's Arms - a great pub located in a street of 19th century workers cottages. 25 Roupell Street, SE1. Great atmosphere and usually busy. Prepare to make new friends! 12 minutes walk away. Borough Market. A bustling food market, one of the oldest in London in an area where Charles Dickens set many of his novels. 15 minute walk away. Supermarket shopping: Sainsbury's supermarket is at 157-168 Blackfriars Road. The cheaper chain supermarket is Tesco’s at 44-46 Borough Road which is a 2 minute walk away. If you carry on walking down The Cut you will come to the Old Vic, the famous theatre that Kevin Spacey used to run. Across the road from the Old Vic is another interesting street called Lower Marsh which has good street food at lunch time and interesting family-run shops. At the end of Lower Marsh you will be at Westminster Bridge i.e. tourist spot central! Great views of Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. CULTURE The Tate Modern- famous centre of international modern art from 1900 to the present day, housed in a former Power Station. 10 minutes walk. Shakespeare's Globe - an oak-and-thatch replica of Shakespeare's original Elizabethan theatre, showing the bard's plays in the open air. 20 Minute walk. (From the Globe you can have a great walk along the Thames by walking in the direction of the Southbank arts centre, see below. At a leisurely pace this will take you around 30 minutes). The Southbank Centre -the world's largest arts centre on the banks of the River Thames. Film, theatre, music and lots of free events. 15 minutes walk from my flat.
The best (and cheapest) way to get to the flat from Heathrow airport is to take the dark blue Picadilly line to Green Park and then change to go south on the silver Jubilee Line. Get off the train at Southwark. It's a 10 minute walk down Blackfriar's Road to our place. If you fly in to Gatwick it's even easier. Take the train from Gatwick airport station and in 40 minutes you will be at London Blackfriars. From there you can walk to the flat in around 12 minutes or get a red bus to the bottom of Blackfriar's Road at St George's Circus. From Stansted airport you take the train to Liverpool Street and then the underground (Circle Line) to Monument. Then take the black Northern line to Elephant and Castle.
