Light, bright and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, this Whitechapel apartment is superbly located for work and play. Inside, the open living and kitchen area is well lit, thanks to the French doors at the end that lead directly out onto a private balcony with views of the city skyscrapers to the north-west. The engineered oak floor, imposing granite worktops, and high-end Bosch appliances lend a high-class air to the place, while the comfortable bed is a great place to cocoon yourself away at the end of a long day. You're well connected when it comes to public transport. Twenty minutes on the DLR and you're in Canary Wharf, while twenty minutes tube ride in the opposite direction will take you to the heart of the City of London. There's plenty within walking distance too. You'll find a Sainsbury's and a Waitrose nearby for stocking up on essentials, while the Tower of London and Tower Bridge are a little over ten minutes' walk. Away from the tourist masses, discover great international restaurants and bars dotted throughout Shoreditch and Brick Lane, around a twenty-minute stroll north of your Whitechapel base.

Local guide


About Wapping

Undoubtedly one of London's most atmospheric riverside areas, packed with maritime history and still retaining a real Dickensian feel to many parts of it on account of its many cobbled streets. The old wharfs and spice and tea warehouses that the area is filled with have almost all now been snapped up and converted by hip media types, wanting to live the NY-style loft dream. The area is also well-known for its many historic riverside pubs, gloriously cosy in wintertime and good for sun soaking come summertime.
