About Amanda Jepson
My husband works in and near the City of London and I am a kiwi lawyer based in Chancery Lane so the flat is ideally located for us to use when the flat is not rented out and when family commitments permit! We have 3 small (rapidly growing) children which also keep us busy. As we have small children, if you need a travel cot (for infants) we have this in the flat so you don't need to lug it with you, and of course we can provide advice on child friendly places although most places are now geared up for children around Tower Hill and the main tourist attractions.
Amanda Jepson purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Amanda Jepson chose Central London
The flat is a short walk to some amazing tourist attractions such as the Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral, the Tate Gallery, to name just a few. Just a short walk over Tower Bridge (after taking the tour inside the bridge) takes you to some very nice restaurants and the South Bank of the Thames. From here you can walk to the Tate and along the Thames to Borough Market and the Cutty Sark ship. There are plenty of supermarkets within walking distance and Borough and Leadenhall markets for more specialist options - The Cheese Shop in Leadenhall market is run by a lady named Sue who knows all there is to know about speciality cheeses! We both really enjoy visiting the theatre and it is realatively easy to get a taxi, bus or tube back from the theatre district to the flat, and plenty of places near the theatres for a pre theatre meal. And if you are feeling more adventurous, there is the East End of London and Brick Lane to explore for curry houses and lots of bars, so it really is a great location for everyone.
What makes this Apartment unique
Unusually for London the flat has a large patio as well as a separate Juliet balcony and it has a peep of the Thames River from the balcony. You could not really be closer to major transport links but it has the advantage of being quiet at the weekends and evenings when the commuters go home. It is a very safe neighbourhood - one in which I have never felt threatened when coming home late from work or the theatre by myself.

Very nice flat. Would certainly stay again.
Awesome London trip
My wife and I visited London for 10 days in early June and stayed at Amanda’s flat and had a great time. The city was beautiful and the flat was just about perfect, very clean, everything we needed was there, tube stop was literally 100 yards away.
Very comfortable accommodations. Amanda was very easy to work with on the reservation and flat access. The unit was spotless and welcoming on arrival. Overall, this is a wonderful flat in a perfect location. The lovely terrace just added to the overall experience.
Nice modern apartment, good location for exploring London.
Walking distance to the Tower and Thames river, good transportation connections. Easy to work with Amanda and the doormen, Jean Pierre and Calum will rake good care of you!
Lovely flat in a great location
The location was perfect and the flat was great. Very nice with everything you would want. The porter in the building was extremely helpful and friendly and the owners were very responsive to questions.
Perfect flat, perfect location
We (2 grandparents and 11 year old grandson) stayed for a week at Amanda’s flat to show him our favorite city. The flat worked perfectly for us, even the tiny washer/dryer combo. Cooking facilities are a bit cramped, but the view over the gherkin made up for that. The “wow” bit was a wireless printer so we could print out tickets and boarding passes. Friendly doormen and elevator were great too, esp for grandpa. It’s 2 minutes from the District/Central Line Tube, across from a big slice of the Roman wall, and 5 minutes walk from The Tower of London and Tower Bridge. I bought a membership in the Royal Historical Palaces which gave us multiple free admissions to the Tower, so we could go back In the late afternoon when the lines were gone to see what we’d missed the first time (it’s also good for Hampton Court, a big favorite, Kensington Palace and other palaces.).
There are many points of historic interest, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Roman Wall and All Saints Church and St. Katherine's Dock. As it is located in 'The City' or financial district, the area is considered very safe, even for walking around late at night. Due to the flat's proximity to four tube stations, namely Aldgate, Bank and Tower Hill stations, as well as the Docklands Light Railway, you can hop on and quickly get to any major attraction in central London: Buckingham Palace, Churchill's War Rooms, Whitehall, Houses of Parliament, Kensington Palace or to the east, Canary Wharf, Brick Lane, Smithfields and Spitalfield markets. It is also about a 20 min walk to St Paul's Cathedral and I definitely recommend making the walk to the top if you're up to it, as well as to the top of The Monument, a 7 min walk away from the flat which marks the site of the Great Fire of London.
