Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is on a street that runs between Shaftesbury Ave and Charing Cross Rd so just walk to any Westend show, ballet or opera and galleries. As well, 5-10 mins walk to the British Museum, Covent Garden, Leicester and Trafalgar Squares, not to mention minutes to the restaurants and jazz clubs of Soho and the shopping on Oxford St. Buckingham Palace and St James Park just 20 mins walk away. A bustop and tube station (Tottenham Court Road) are across the road but walking is the way to go when you are this central. Perfect for a week or weekend of shows, galleries, museums, shopping and restaurants and to use as base to explore Europe and the UK.
