“Marialuisa's house is very comfortable and tidy. Very close to bus stops and the underground station so perfect to visit London main attractions. The area is really quiet and good pubs and supermarkets are very near. Victoria park is very near too and renting bikes we enjoyed cycling a lot in there. The Canal nearby is a fantastic place for relaxing walks. Communication between Maria Luisa and us was always easy so I can highly recommend them for following exchanges.”

Where is it?
We love our neighbourhood and so have our guests!
We live in a very quiet street in a family friendly, up and coming neighbourhood close to the financial centres of Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf. The house is near Victoria Park, one of the oldest public parks in London. Very close to the house is also the pictoresque Regent's Canal, ideal for cycling to many of London's most attractive tourist hotspots, including Camden, Regent's Park and Maida Vale. The popular Brick Lane, Shoreditch, and Columbia Road flower market, and Broadway farmer's market, each with many bars and restaurants and lovely shops, are all within easy reach of the house (on foot or by bike). We are also close to the the Westfield shopping centre and the Queen Elizabeth Park, the former Olympic centre (only one tube stop or a short bus drive, or a 20 minute walk).
Our house is centrally located and it's well served by London underground and buses. It is about 7 minutes' walk from the Central Line, District, Hammersmith and Circle Lines, in zone 2. Liverpool Street can be reached in 5 minutes by tube and Oxford Circus is only 20 minutes away. The house is also close to popular bus routes such as the Number 8 that runs through St Paul's and Oxford Street to Victoria. It is also well served by cycle routes, for example, the Regent's Canal towpath which connects the area to Islington, Camden, Regent's Park and Canary Wharf. Greenwich, for example, can be easily reached by bike and then by a short, but spectacular boat trip on the Thames.
Restaurants, bars, pubs and art
Our area is vibrant and multicultural, boasting art galleries, shops and nice restaurants and bars.
Close to our home are plenty of galleries and museums, including the V&A Childhood Museum, the Whitechapel Gallery, and the Tate Modern, which is only a few tube stops away. There are also cinemas and cultural centres nearby.
Other major London attractions are the Tower of London and St Paul's Cathedral, both reachable in 15 minutes by tube or bus.
