Our home

Churchill Gardens is a Grade II Listed 1950s public housing estate, quiet and spacious, bordering the Thames on one side and the neo-classical terraced rows of Pimlico on the other. So the flat, not being new, has high ceilings and thick walls and it is warm (communal central heating and hot water) in winter and has plenty of light (being on 5th floor with open views). For a visitor its location in Zone 1 may seem second to none. Practically everywhere you might like to go, from Harrods to Piccadilly, from the Houses of Parliament to the London Eye is walkable. Nearest tube is Pimlico Station.

Who we are

  1. I'm Adrian, not retired in any official sense but stopped working after a career in banking, now writing a book. My girlfriend normally joins me on house exchanges, making two travellors and we've had all great experiences. We normally look for opportunities to windsurf and snorkel, rather than city breaks or cultural locations.
