We recently shared our favourite hotels in the city but a great alternative if you prefer somewhere more private, somewhere you can really feel at home, is renting a luxury serviced apartment in London.
London is a place like no other where past and present come together to create a city rich with history and culture. No matter how long your visit or how many times you’ve been before, there’s always more to discover whether it’s a traditional pub tucked down a secret side street, a pop-up boutique stall, a restaurant opening or a new West End show. London is a city which is constantly moving and when the buzz of London gets a bit too loud there’s no place better to escape to than a luxurious apartment in one of London’s most exclusive areas, Mayfair.
Serviced Luxury Private Apartments
London is an exciting city that’s incredibly easy to get caught up in as you explore. However, when the bustle of the city gets too much you need somewhere where you can unwind and relax, and we know just the spot.
With Urban Retreat Apartments, you can find a luxury apartment to suit the needs of your stay with the heart of London right on your doorstep. These short let, one to four bedroom apartments are located in Mayfair one of London’s most prestigious areas, in 19th Century red brick buildings that epitomises the historic splendour of late Victorian London. Here, you can enjoy everything the city has to offer and then retire to your private haven to completely unwind.
Wine and Dine
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a place to eat in the capital city. The diversity of London is reflected in its restaurants, and the fine dining scene offers something for every possible palette. There are new places opening all the time, so your taste buds are always in for a treat. To make the most of your meal, ask your waiter for their wine match recommendation. The right pairing can transform a good meal into a great one. Book a table downstairs at Social Wine and Tapas for great food and wine pairings in a stylish setting less than a ten minute walk away from your Mayfair apartment.
Luxury shopping in London
Stepping out of your luxurious apartment, you are minutes away from London’s world-famous shopping scene. Oxford Street and Bond Street are within an easy walking distance. Plus, there’s the iconic Selfridges just around the corner, not forgetting Fortnum and Mason, which is less than a ten-minute walk away. There’s a great atmosphere in all these streets, especially around Christmas when the shops and department stores put on their festive bling! Covent Garden is another great option for luxury shopping as well as unique market stalls and it’s just a short taxi ride away. It’s so easy to spend a day exploring one of the best shopping scenes in the country.
Take in a West End show
The West End has a tangible buzz as you step foot into Theatreland. You can see a classic show such as the Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserables, or discover a new and upcoming show. For a real treat book a box, sit back and get the best view of the show. Find top London theatre shows.
Whether visiting for work or pleasure, a serviced luxury apartment will make you feel at home in the buzzing cosmopolitan metropolis of London.
