Who we are

  1. We are Andy and Clare and have a young baby just born! Clare is a travel writer and Andy is a professional classical musician. Due to our cultural lives we enjoy immensely our great city with all that it has to offer. We love having easy access to concert halls, galleries, theatres, cinemas, tourist attractions and most of all fantastic restaurants all around us. We have both travelled extensively all around the world and are excited about the prospects of swapping our home with others who love their home and enjoy travelling equally. Clare is a very proud new mother and Andy used to compete and instruct in cross country skiing and we like to spend a lot of our winter skiing. This is our first foray into exchanging and we would be keen to explore cross county ski options in Europe in the winter and are open to other options around the world the rest of the year. We would like to exchange by email in advance to learn more about our fellow exchangers. We are clean and considerate and will treat your home with the same respect we treat our own. We are non-smokers and very responsible and clean living.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in the heart of Waterloo one of London's central districts. Famous for its large mainline train station the area is also the home for the London Eye, London Aquarium, IMAX cinema and The Southbank cultural centre which includes the National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room and Hayward Gallery. All of this is within a 5-10 minute walk. Going East along the River Thames the Tate Modern and St. Pauls Cathedral are still only 15 minutes walk and West a similar distance are the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Slightly further afield and you can find Covent Garden, The Royal Opera House, Chinatown, Leicester Square, Londons West End theatres, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, Green Park and Buckingham Palace. You can walk to all of these in 20-30 minutes but from right outside our front door you can take any bus (every 3 mins approx) straight across the river and this will drop you right on the edge of Covent Garden and closer to all of the above. For most attractions there is almost no need to use the underground network fantastic though it is. However London is a large city and should you wish to explore further afield Waterloo underground and mainline station is just 3 minutes away giving you superb travel options for exploring the whole of London and the many other attractions close to it.
