Experience London from the tranquil waters of the River Thames! This accommodation is in a walk-up building equipped with a security system. Each townhouse accommodation has its own private parking space, should you wish to rent a car for your stay in central London. Located in the Docklands, on Capstan Square just off Prestons Road, you’ll be right next to the popular Canary Wharf center as well as transportation options and will be afforded with great views of the River Thames itself.
With 120 square meters (1,292 square feet) of space, you’ll have plenty of room that you can call home during your stay in London. This particular townhouse accommodation has three bedrooms, two of which have king-sized beds and one has a double-sized bed, accommodating up to six guests. While this vacation rental accommodation is located on the ground floor (first floor in America), the accommodation itself covers several levels, so stairs will need to be navigated to access the entire accommodation. There is a bathroom with a bathtub and shower located between the two. One bedroom even has a private balcony that overlooks the River Thames! There’s a second bathroom on the bottom level that has a shower for your use. Another great feature is the living area, which sports a leather sofa and armchairs, television with cable channels, and a dining area with seating for six. Why would you need a dining area? Because you have many dining options while in London, one of which is your very own well-equipped kitchen, with an oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, toaster, coffee maker, a dishwasher, and even a washer/dryer for your laundry needs. You’ll also have complimentary wireless internet access for the duration of your stay.
Don’t worry about getting around, the owner will have a large print map ready for you to use to find your way around. There’s lots to do in the local area, and as a guest of this property you can partake of a discount at two area Indian restaurants; details on how to book them will be provided, if you are interested. The Canary Wharf center is only 1.3 km/0.8 miles away to the northwest, where you’ll find plenty of waterway frontage for strolling as well as restaurants offering a wide variety of international cuisines; several offer free delivery as well. There’s plenty of nice pubs in the area for you to capture the local London flavors should you wish; one called The Gun is only a short walk to the north (0.5 km/0.3 miles away). You’ll have plenty to choose from near this three bedroom London townhouse. When you’re ready to explore London, you’ll find the Canary Wharf underground (subway) station located right in the heart of the Canary Wharf district, 1.3 km/0.8 miles away to the northwest. You can also take London buses, black London taxis, or even the River bus that picks up from the Canary Wharf Pier every 15 minutes. There’s also the “Boris Bikes” you can take advantage of; you can rent a bike for 30 minutes’ worth of travel – just pick it up from one dock, ride it to another dock, and turn it in. The first 30 minutes are free, so keep that in mind when figuring out where you want to go. You’ll be close to historic London, the River Thames, and plenty of shopping and dining when staying in this three bedroom London townhome!

The Riverside apt in Canary Wharf [...] more than met our needs and hopes! The owner [...] was incredibly helpful! The place was immaculately clean, in a clean, quiet and safe area with beautiful views, and a fairly short walk to the tube. We had a wonderful time and this apartment contributed greatly to the comfort of our stay! Thank You!!
