Holiday homes in London

Pay attention to the location of the apartment

The eight and a half million inhabitant metropolis offers thousands of holiday accommodations in all parts of the city to choose from. The more centrally you reside, the more expensive the apartment will usually be. Beautiful areas to find a holiday home with garden are mainly Bloomsbury and Kensington. From these districts you can also easily reach the city centre by underground.

From simple studios to exclusive luxury apartments

Those who are looking for a holiday home in London should pay particular attention to the location and the price. Due to the numerous providers, it is not difficult to find a suitable apartment. Many accommodation providers also rent single rooms or multi-storey luxury suites, so you'll find the right holiday accommodation for every preference and wallet.

Book a holiday home in an elegant residential area

There is nothing better than relaxing in a green garden after an extended shopping or sightseeing tour through London. Make use of the family-friendly holiday homes on the outskirts of the city, where parking is usually no problem. In London City, on the other hand, it is common for apartment complexes to have a doorman to ensure your safety and special services.

Holidays in London

Location and orientation

Holidays in the largest metropolitan region of the European Union

London is the capital of the United Kingdom and is located in England. The Thames flows through the city area of the island capital, whose banks are lined by numerous sights and skyscrapers. Around London there are some other very interesting cities like Oxford, Cambridge, Brighton and Windsor.

The best way to get there by plane

Around London there are a total of five airports where aircraft from Germany land almost every hour. The biggest airport is Heathrow in the west, then Gatwick in the south. Many budget airlines like to land in Stansted in the northeast or at Luton Airport in the north. London also has a small city airport in the Docklands. From the airports you can easily get to London city centre by public transport.

Being on the road in London

It is important for motorists to know that left-hand traffic predominates in London. In addition, the traffic stands more than that it drives and in the city centre a road charge is raised. Leave your car at the edge of town and change to the subway, which will take you to all parts of the town. For a longer stay, it is worth getting a Travel Card for one, three or seven days, otherwise single trips will quickly cost you money.

Things to know

Always have an umbrella with you

If you want to experience the cultural life of the British metropolis to the full, then the best thing to do is to get a "London Pass", with which you can visit many sights free of charge. Depending on the length of your stay, you can purchase a 1-, 2-, 3- or 6-day pass.
