Heathrow has a similar system that goes to Paddington. You can also get the Piccadilly Line from Heathrow that takes 45 minutes to get to zone 1, the tubes conveniently run every two to three minutes throughout the day. London City Airport is arguably the closest to central London and it is only six miles away from Canary Wharf. There is no express train to and from here but is very easy to get to using the Jubilee Line and the DLR.
London has an excellent public transport system, one can choose from the tube or the bus. There are 11 tube lines which may seem a bit overwhelming but they are all signposted very clearly to help you find your way. Using the bus in London is a great way to get from A to B but also see London at the same time. You can also make unlimited bus journeys within one hour of tapping in. It is possible to pay for the bus or tube with a contactless card or you can buy an oyster card at your nearest tube station.

Mayfair is where you will find the world of decadence, old money and A-listers. This is a very expensive part of London to stay in, but if you are on a romantic getaway and you want to treat yourselves, then book a beautiful luxury apartment. Mayfair is home to some of London's finest hotels and restaurants such as the Ritz, the Dorchester, Nobu, Novikov and Sexy Fish. It is also in a great location to rent a flat if you want to relax in Hyde Park or be near Oxford Street, otherwise known as a shopper's paradise.
Notting Hill is in the West of London and it is one of the most popular places in London for celebrities to hangout. It is a bit further away from the tourist attractions then places like Mayfair, however booking a holiday rental here will allow you to experience life as a Londoner.

We have an amazing selection of serviced apartments and hotel rooms here but this is a very popular area, so book quickly before they sell out! Covent garden is very close to Chinatown and Soho, visiting these areas make for a great day out. We also have several studios available for rental in this area if you are travelling on a budget.

Richmond is the perfect place to book a short term holiday letting if you are travelling with kids and want to be surrounded by parks and greenery, then find a rental here. Richmond is on the outskirts of London and so holiday apartment rentals are cheaper than accommodation in central London and they are much more spacious. Richmond is only a 30 minute tube ride and a 15 minute drive into central London, so this is a great place to stay if you want to find accommodation where you get more for your money.
The London Eye is an iconic part of the city's skyline, it consists of 32 capsules and each one holds 25 people. Book tickets if you want to get the most breath-taking bird's eye view of London.
