Pimlico is an ideal central London location with a small-scale friendly villagey atmosphere and lots of neighbourhood shops. It is just as centrally located as prime areas such as Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Kensington, Chelsea and Hollard Park, but offers more reasonable rents. The flat is tucked well away from rush hour traffic and major roads in a quiet and unspoilt Victorian cul-de-sac in the much sought-after Pimlico Conservation Area, but is just 5 minute’s walk away from major transport hub Victoria Station (Victoria, Circle & District tube lines, plus bus links to just about everywhere). Easy transport access to Imperial College, UCL, SOAS, LSE, Royal College of Art, the British Library, British Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate Britain & Tate Modern etc.

Overlooking its own really pretty private garden (magnolia, roses, irises, daffodils), the flat is just one minute’s walk away from: every type of local shop, coffee shop & restaurant; Gail’s Artisan Bakery; supermarkets Waitrose, & a very large Sainsbury’s with butcher, fish monger, & cheese counter; a daily vegetable market with foodie stalls on Fri/Sat; Queen Mother Sports Centre with swimming pool; local post office; and 2 Boris bike rent stands. Victoria Street, a major shopping street, with large department store (A&N House of Fraser) and most banks & chain stores.

I highly recommend this flat at the heart of London. I spent a few months here in the Spring of 2017 and could not have asked for a better place. The flat is conveniently located at walking distance from Victoria and Pimlico. It is situated in a very quiet street (cul-de-sac), with a bakery, shops, restaurants, and a local market just around the corner. The bedroom, sitting area, and kitchen are all situated at the back of the house and overlook the garden, so you hardly have any street noise. In addition, the many windows allow for lots of natural light, making the rooms very airy and bright. I got on with the landlady very well - Barbie is a lovely person and a good landlady - and thought it convenient that all amenities were included in the rent. You will find this a great and quiet place in a very central part of London! Excellent Birgit 6/9/2017 12:36:00 PM
I strongly recommend you to rent this flat. The flat is bright, quite, and beautiful. You have two balconies and a wonderful view on a super relaxing and nice garden. Therefore, you have the advantage of a relaxing place in the heart of London, at a walking distance from Victoria and Pimlico metro station. The location is cool, you have whatever you need in your proximity (restaurants, super markets, cafe, boulangerie). So, the flat is fantastic, in a very nice quartier and, as if this was not enough, Barbie is a very kind, polite and nice owner. You will really feel at home. Excellent stefania 2/21/2017 7:55:00 AM
