Central London Houses: Best Option to Stay While Visiting London

Posted by homehouseestates on March 13th, 2014

Renting a home in London is a great way to enjoy authentic London living. Whether you are looking to relocate or simply passing by for a visit, consider renting a flat to soak in what the city has to offer, from the culture to the sights and everything in between. Different areas offer unique draws, and this makes choosing a place to stay much easier. With a Central London home, you never have to worry about strict hotel check-in and checkout times or endure the lack of space and privacy of other accommodation options. Ask your letting agent about good homes in the following areas and enjoy quick access to some of the best things that London boasts.

1.         Hyde Park, Paddington and Bayswater (London Central)

Bayswater is a residential area that is home to foreign embassies and stately manors. It connects to the rest of London via the Bayswater and Queensway Tube stations, which are on the District and Central Line, respectively. With the tube stops just around the corner, you are only a short ride to most of London's premiere attractions, from the Buckingham Palace to Westminster and Knightsbridge. You don't even have to go far to find a good time in this area, as it is home to Albert Memorial, Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall, and the London Toy and Model Museum.

2.         Strand, Covent Garden and Holborn (Central London)

Known as the theatreland, this area is home to pubs, open air cafés, street entertainers, and the West End theatres. It is connected to the rest of London via the Leicester Square, Temple, Charing Cross, Holborn, and Embankment tube stops, and is home not only to the most reputable theatre places and opera houses, but to the Royal Courts of Justice and Inks of Court as well. As the cultural epicentre of the city, this Central London neighbourhood is perfect for those who want to experience the rich and diverse culture of the capital. A fine selection of rentals can also be found throughout this neighbourhood, ideal for short visits and even long-term stays.

3.         Knightsbridge, High St. Kensington (London Central)

This is the perfect place for shopaholics, with Harrods just around the corner near the Knightsbridge tube stop. Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Westminster, and Covent Gardens are all an easy tube ride away. This is why many tourists choose to stay here and many investors choose to buy homes in the area.
