While you might already be impressed by nearby Westminster Abbey and the gothic Houses of Parliament, the red-brick Victorian grandeur of this home is sure to draw your eye. Housed in this building, alongside the Arts Council England, your flat is a sophisticated yet luxurious sanctuary. While mid-century furniture and hanging tapestries bring an old-world vibe, the stony colour palette of the kitchen and living space home feels modern yet understated – that’s until you get to the master bedroom. The forest green feature wall brings a pop of colour and the room opens onto a private patio with wooden slatted furniture. Away from your peaceful abode, it’s an imposing mix of power and dominance in this area, with the spires of parliament on the Thames and 10 Downing Street just ten minutes away. Continuing with this theme, Buckingham Palace is less than a twenty-minute walk. Even if you’re not looking to spot the royals, the greenery of St James’s Park is well worth strolling to on a sunny day. On your way back, we recommend a trip to the top of Westminster Cathedral – its incredible viewpoint offers panoramic scenes of London. From here, it’s just over ten minutes to home, of course via a local store to fetch a sparkling wine for an evening on the patio.
Home truths: *While you do have your own patio here, it's not particularly large or well decorated
*As this home has a self check-in feature, you will not meet your hosts
*You cannot smoke anywhere, even in your private outdoor area
*Because you're in central London, parking in the area is very limited and will cost you
*Guests may not have parties in this flat – but you've got the whole city of London for a night out
