Gesamtübersicht

Our spacious, light and quiet apartment combines the best charm of London: the juxtaposition of old and new. Located in the gated Heritage Quarter which forms the heart of the Royal Arsenal, with a Thames River view, it offers contemporary comfort with period features, WiFi and easy transport to all London destinations & beyond, by the new High Speed Elizabeth Line (direct journey to Oxford Street - Heathrow), Uber Boat/Thames Clipper, Train & DLR. Our building originally held stores for the Royal Navy.

Der Raum

A welcome respite after a day sight-seeing in London come 'home' to this unique apartment with many original architectural features set within the exclusive gated area of the prestigious, award-winning Royal Arsenal Riverside. This split-level, well-appointed, corner apartment, 1066 sq. ft. of living space, is on the top floor with views historic Arsenal buildings and the Thames River. The first level consists of open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen areas. Off the entry hallway is a tiled, walk-in shower and WC with heated towel rail. A spiral staircase leads to two bedrooms, one with king bed (American queen) and en suite bathroom, the other with three single beds. Our flat comfortably sleeps 5 with two more possible using the pull out sofa in the lounge nook. There’s plenty of space to spread out should you spend the day in as everyone can retreat to their own corner or room. We love to sit in the morning sun, read the paper and drink coffee at the dining table while enjoying the view of the historic buildings that surround us, or stay in bed and watch the birds and clouds drift by the skylights. The kids love to play games, watch TV/movies or hide out in their room on their electronic devices before we take off for our London adventures. Our home is decorated and appointed to reflect its London location, historic & royal roots.

Gastzugang

Because of the historic nature of our home which is in the gated Heritage Area and surrounded by Grade II Listed Buildings we do not have a lift. We are on the second floor--the top floor of the building so you will have to climb stairs but they are wide and not steep. We look at it as free exercise with our light, bright and quiet corner oasis as the reward. ;) There is also a short spiral staircase between the two levels of our home.

Anmerkungen

Although considered a second or holiday home—it is actually our family’s permanent home. We have hosted and prepared many holiday meals with all the trimmings for family and friends so we are confident you will find everything you need for a comfortable stay, as you would in your own home. As you have access to a London train station you can also take advantage of 2 for 1 tickets to London attractions that are only available with Travelcards/tickets purchased from Train stations NOT Tube stations. The 2 for 1 offers are designed to help Brits/locals make the most of London--their Capital City, but are also available to visitors and guests alike.

Nachbarschaft

Located in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, according to English Heritage's, Survey of London, 'the Royal Arsenal is among Britain's most important historic sites.' The development is a mix of historic structures dating back to the 18th Century and award winning new buildings. Art and artifacts are sprinkled throughout, and a river walk runs the length of the development in parallel with the Thames. Our home overlooks many of the Grade II Listed buildings in the gated Heritage Quarter and the Thames. Our building was used to store military provisions for the Royal Navy and was built in the 19th century. Over the centuries, the Royal Arsenal has influenced the unfolding of world history. For Americans, "the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air," came from the Royal Arsenal. It very much feels like the set of a BBC Period Drama as you walk around and relax in our home. But of course, both our home and the area offers all of the modern conveniences of the 21st Century! Although, a London neighbourhood, the Arsenal feels like a village, and you will generally find the people you interact with much friendlier than many in London--especially where our home is located. It's that famous East End welcome! and the fact that many of us moved to the Arsenal because of the community feeling it fosters and expects of all of us. Has all that history made you hungry? There are 3 supermarkets & 5 restaurants, cafes and pubs within minutes of our door--all within the Royal Arsenal itself. Many more shopping and eating opportunities reside just across the road in Woolwich Centre. The Concierge, the Dial Arch Pub, Boulangerie Jade, SALT-Woolwich, Con Gusto, The Guard House, Tesco's Express Grocery, Marks & Spencer Food Hall, Sainsbury's Local and the ATM/Cash Till are just outside the gated courtyard on the way to the Liz Line/Tube, Train and DLR/Tube. Most recently Woolwich Works -- a preforming arts complex has begun hosting performances and events in historic buildings around the development. The world-renowned Punchdrunk Theatre Company, known for its immersive theatre productions is based at the Arsenal and is currently preforming The Burnt City. Eltham Palace, Henry VIII's childhood home and the Royal Blackheath Golf Club are a short bus ride or drive away. The latter is England's oldest golf club. Greenwich--Park, Town Centre and the O2 are easily reachable by short Bus, Thames Clipper or Train ride.

Zu mir nach Hause kommen

You can arrive into any London airport (train or ferry terminal) and then transfer by Train, High-speed Rail/Tube (Liz Line), DLR, Uber Thames Clipper or Car. Specific directions provided. The Uber Thames Clipper is on the pier just outside the gate and across from our home. The high speed Elizabeth Underground station is a 5 minute walk within the Royal Arsenal providing a direct connection to Oxford Street, Heathrow, points in between, and beyond. London City Airport with direct flights to Ireland, Paris & Scotland is two stops away on the DLR. No other location in London has so many efficient and direct transport options to get anywhere in London, the British Isles & beyond.

Nächstliegender Flughafen

Heathrow is less than an hour by high speed Elizabeth Line. London City Airport is two stops on the DLR. Gatwick, Luton & Stansted are just over an hour away. All easily reached by public transport.

Rumkommen

Your transport choices are endless: The Uber River Bus/Thames Clipper is at the Woolwich Arsenal Pier just across from our home and will take you up the Thames all the way to the London Eye/Westminster and all stops in between including the new stop at Excel--Royal Wharf. The high-speed Elizabeth Line underground station is in the Arsenal and has a direct link to Oxford Street and Theatreland in 15 minutes. Heathrow Airport is less than an hour. The DLR and Train are a short stroll away just across the high street in the town centre. Buses also go everywhere, and the Thames River Walk is at your feet if you're bringing your bike or just want to explore the Thames. As you have access to a London train station you can also take advantage of 2 for 1 tickets to London attractions that are only available with Travelcards/tickets purchased from Train stations NOT Tube stations. The 2 for 1 offers are designed to help Brits/locals make the most of London--their Capital City, but are also available to visitors and guests alike. We also have one assigned parking spot (for day trips outside of London) in our gated courtyard which can be viewed from our home.

Andrea

Tim and I have three kids, now young adults, and these days we are traveling more on our own! Formerly, Tim worked for an international consumer products company and I for nonprofits, and in international education. We now own PUZZLES & Lewes Gourmet in historic, maritime Lewes, DE. (We discovered Lewes, changed careers and moved there after a home exchange!) We have lived as expats for most of our lives calling multiple European countries & America "home". We love to travel and experience new places, meet new people, learn new ways of doing things and new perspectives. Recognising all the while just how connected and interdependent our world really is. We so value the experiential opportunity to live life from another's perspective. In turn, we enjoy sharing our London home with guests from all over the world.
