When you think of London, what’s the first thing that pops in your head? Most likely you’re thinking about that London icon Big Ben or perhaps the classic red telephone booths. Or maybe you’re atop Tower Bridge watching boats on the Thames pass by or waiting anxiously for the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Do you remember the first time you heard the deep, ringing bell of Big Ben? I do! These quintessential London experiences are hard to forget.
Now what if they were quite literally at your doorstep?
When we first stepped into the Westminster, a stylish and beautifully remodelled one bedroom vacation rental, we new it could only take its name from the spectacular location just down a quiet street from Westminster Abbey. Yes, the Westminster Abbey where William and Kate were married and centuries of English history have taken place. The location is dreamy and the apartment a complete charmer! Here’s what a recent guest said about her stay at the Westminster:
“Had a fantastic time in London and loved this apartment. It is so centrally located and very comfortable. I know I will miss not hearing Big Ben. Should I return to London for any length of time, I hope to be able to stay here again.” – Jan
We wanted to share a closer look inside this very special vacation rental right in the heart of London’s Westminster neighbourhood. This apartment is such a comfortable home and is available for longer term bookings only of three weeks or longer. With its ideal central location and charm it books up quickly, so contact us to reserve your stay at the Westminster!
Step in the living room where you’ll find a long sofa, a chic leather ottoman and opposite a large flat screen TV. Been walking all day in London and looking for a cozy spot to relax in the evening? You’ve found it! At night, the modern Italian sofa can be converted to two high-quality single beds, which means this one bedroom apartment can welcome up to 4 guests. (And because you might be wondering, there’s even an extra powder room handy for guests sleeping in the living room!)
The Westminster has been beautifully decorated with contemporary décor and whimsical design touches to create a welcoming setting for a holiday stay. Forget hotel anonymous decorating and enjoy a home feel after a day of sightseeing in London.
And then … sigh … there’s the bedroom complete with queen size bed, a peaceful décor and a full en suite bathroom with a lovely walk-in shower, toilet, sink, heated towel rail and underfloor heating. Sink into the comfy bed at night and enjoy reading in bed before switching off the bedside lights. Tomorrow is another day in London!
From the Westminster apartment you’re just around the corner from the Gothic church Westminster Abbey. You’ll certainly want to plan a visit or perhaps a tour of Westminster Abbey or attend Sunday morning services. It’s an awe-inspiring experience to walk amongst the tombs of great writers in Poets’ Corner, imagine the great coronations, weddings and funerals or stand under the incredible fan vaulting in the Lady Chapel.
Just beyond Westminster Abbey you’ll see a familiar sight … Big Ben! From the Westminster vacation rental it’s just a short stroll to the Thames where you can cross over to the London Eye or hop on a ferry down to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. You’ll also be walking distance to Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and beautiful St. James’s Park. And with tons of buses and the Tube nearby you can reach every part of London quickly and easily.
