ST PAUL'S CATHEDRAL AT NIGHT

Welcome to the Capital City
of the English-speaking World.

          Everyone must see London. It just might be the most youthful and interesting city in the world. London is chaotic, loud, diverse, and sophisticated.
It is British Babylon. It is theatre, shopping,
museums, royal pageantry, landmarks, red buses
and black cabs.

LOCATE LONDON ON HOME AT FIRST'S MAP OF ENGLAND & WALES

 

 

In our customers' own words —

          "We had an outstanding holiday. Accommodations at St. Katharine's Marina were well-situated, safe. Ground/area very attractive. Excellent amenities. Close to Underground and buses. A joy to walk from our flat and be at the Tower Bridge and Tower of London in three or four minutes! The supermarket right across the street a major plus. We'll be doing our second Home At First trip next summer!"

— K. & N. Kirkwood, California

St. Katharine's

Marina

Beauty, Tranquility, Safety, & Convenience

          HOME AT FIRSTs London apartments are located in historic, beautiful St. Katharine’s Marina just east of the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. Once an important warehouse center for high-value imports, this westernmost section of London's redeveloped Docklands is now a large,

sequestered yacht basin. A pedestrians-

 

only zone, the marina is lined with modern apartment buildings, and -numerous upscale shops, restaurants, and pubs. HOME AT FIRSTs apartments at St. Katharine's Marina are a 5-minute traffic-free walk from the Tower Hill Underground stop. From here, all of downtown London may be reached within 30 minutes.

 

In our customers' own words —

          "The St. Katharine's Marina location was absolutely captivating, with the harbor full of boats and The Tower nearby. An ideal location for our adventures out each day to explore the city via 'the tube'."

— R. & P. Tyler, Arizona

           HOME AT FIRST’s London apartments are well-equipped with all the comforts of home. Most importantly, all are perfectly located as bases for exploration throughout London (click here to see a sample walk). Located on the north side of the River Thames in modern apartment buildings overlooking traffic-free, upscale St. Katharine's Marina, HOME AT FIRST’s Apartments at St. Katharine’s Marina are a few walking minutes from the landmark Tower Bridge and history-rich Tower of London. Some of the apartments provide dramatic glimpses of London's Tower Bridge across the Thames. While each lodging is unique, all share superb access to the many shops, restaurants, and visitor attractions on both sides of the river. All of Central London is readily accessible by public transportation — the Underground, buses, some trains and river cruisers. At the end of each day's exploration of London, your marina apartment provides a quiet refuge in a beautiful setting.

          HOME AT FIRST’s London BREWERY APARTMENTS are well-equipped with all the comforts of home. Most importantly, all are perfectly located as bases for exploration throughout London (click here to see a sample walk). HOME AT FIRST’s Brewery Apartments in Bermondsey are on the south side of the River Thames in a modern apartment building a short walk from the landmark Tower Bridge and the history-rich Tower of London. While each apartment is unique, all share excellent access to the many shops, restaurants, transportation, and visitor attractions on both sides of the river.
          While you may not yet have heard of
Bermondsey, you will soon: it is one of the last sections of Central London to be redeveloped following the devastation of the World War II. At once historic and modern, Bermondsey flouts its connections with Roman London, with the Victorian London of Charles Dickens, and with the great architectural statements of post-modern London, including The Shard, Europe's tallest building.

YOUR OWN APARTMENT IN CENTRAL LONDON

History, Culture, Theatre, &
a Home away from Home.

          After long days of London history, culture, fashion, and theatre, return to a friendly pint at a
local pub. Or make a quick stop at a local market for fresh food and a bottle of wine to enjoy on your balcony overlooking a peaceful courtyard or the yacht-lined marina. Super markets, specialty shops, open-air markets, groceries, butchers, bakers, wine and spirits stores are conveniently close to HOME AT FIRST London apartments. Pubs, restaurants, cafés, wine bars, and take-away shops will tempt you not to use your apartment's kitchen for every meal you enjoy in London or your apartment's balcony for every drink you sip.

Getting around is Fun & Easy.

          Getting around London's maze of streets and neighborhoods is fun. Although you can see a lot of London just by walking from your HOME AT FIRST apartment, you can get to almost anyplace in Central London most quickly using the London Underground. Or you can enjoy the smashing scenery from the top of a double-decker bus. Passes for the Underground and the buses of London are supplied as part of HOME AT FIRST's Full Packages and Ground Arrangements Only travel programs to London.

 

London=Lots to Do!

          What is there to see and do in London? What about theater and museums and London walks and pubs and clubs and markets and parks and history and restaurants and those red-coated soldiers with bearskin high hats? HOME AT FIRST provides you our exclusive "London Activities Guide" with dozens of ideas for things to do in London during your stay.

The Tower of London is London's most popular
attraction. It is within easy (5-10 minutes) walking distance
from Home At First's London apartments at St. Katharine's
Marina and The Brewery. Two thousand years of London
history, architecture, and culture surround our London
apartment locations and may be easily explored.

In our customers' own words — 

          "Our location at St. Katharine's Marina in London was terrific. We ran our legs off investigating as much of London as possible. The U.S. could learn something from the UK about moving thousands of people — the Tube (London's subway system) is positively fantastic!"

— M. J. M. Banning, California

"ENGLAND ACTIVITY GUIDE"

Lots to do inside and outside of London!

         Discovering London is exciting and can be non-stop. But maybe you would like a break from the hustle of the city. Why not take a day in the English countryside? No place in Britain offers better public transportation connections to more of the places you want to go. Take the train somewhere fun: the seaside at Brighton, to the great castle at Arundel, Royal St. George's Golf Club in Sandwich, or to the World Heritage Site churches of medieval Canterbury. Try to solve the mystery of Stonehenge. See what the Romans were up to a St. Albans. Stop for high tea in Windsor after visiting the Queen's castle. Go punting at Cambridge, or visit the magnificent library at Oxford. Discover and enjoy local pubs and fine restaurants

 

throughout the region.

          HOME AT FIRST guests in London receive our

exclusive "London Activities Guide" and "England Activities Guide". The "Activities Guides" are full of suggestions and maps for things to see and do in London plus dozens of easy-to-do railway day trips throughout much of England: where to go, what to do, and how to do it efficiently and inexpensively. Rye, Bath, Salisbury, Winchester, Portsmouth, Chester, Lincoln, Bury St. Edmunds, Oxford, Stratford on Avon, THE WORLD HERITAGE SITE OF MARITIME GREENWICH, King's Lynn, York, and even Cardiff in Wales are just a few of the hundreds of day trip destinations possible from London. The high speed trains of Britain make it possible. HOME AT FIRST's exclusive "Activities Guide" makes it easy. London guests can order BritRail Passes to make day trips throughout much of England and Wales by train convenient and economical.

In our customers' own words—

            "The St. Katharine's Dock area is lovely, and gives the feeling of security. Being so close to the supermarket is a real plus. We felt very secure in the apartment and enjoyed the room it afforded us. We took day trips to Oxford, Bath, and Shrewsbury from London using our BritRail Pass. British trains run so incredibly on time!"

— J. Mowery, Illinois

            "We took several trips away from London, all from different train stations, and all were excellent. Always on time, and plenty of trains. Our longest wait 15 minutes."

— K. & N. Kirkwood, California

 

Family-friendly London.
        Should we bring the kids along? Are you kidding?! There are great parks, theater the whole family will love, train rides and boat rides better than in any amusement park, and, oh yes, amusement parks, too. Want history to come alive for your kids? Why not take them where so much history has been made? Worried about being away from McDonald's and TV? Don't be. Kids of all ages can get their burgers,

all ages can get their burgers, fries

 

and CNN all over Britain. And maybe the kids will discover new tastes: fish 'n chips, ice lollies (like those from the ice cream van at the Tower of London, pictured here), and the crazy convenience of public transportation as a minimum, to bring home as souvenirs. SEE OUR FAMILY TRAVEL PAGE FOR COMPLETE INFORMATION!

 

In our customers' own words —

           "St. Katharine's Marina was a fabulous location for our London experience. Location was very important to our group of 6 adults and 5 children. We loved being a short walk from the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Thames Path, the nearby Underground station and bus stop. The supermarket — also just a short walk away — was a blessing!"

— D. & R. Stowers, Florida
