Welcome to our lovely home a converted East End warehouse apartment – the former ex Spratt’s Dog Biscuits factory. The factory is circa late 1890’s and was the largest dog biscuit producer in the world! The building is within a secure gated redevelopment and our apartment, which you will share with us, is on the upper ground floor. If you are looking for a comfortable modern character filled place to stay then this is for you.
The double bedroom is fully furnished and has a TV/DVD/Freeview system and we offer Free WiFi. A complimentary fruit bowl as well as a choice of snacks will be waiting for you in your room. Continental breakfast and fresh towels will be provided during your stay. Please note the apartment is strictly no smoking.
We are very close to Canary Wharf where there are plenty of shops, supermarkets, a cinema and bars. Should you wish to keep up with your exercise routine there is a gym just 2 minutes walk away. Although I would imagine the amount of sightseeing that you will be do will keep you just as fit!
The apartment is just a few minutes walk to the nearest train station (Docklands Light Railway) and just 8 minutes to Canary Wharf. Central London (Oxford Street, Covent Garden, and Carnaby Street) shopping is also just a short tube journey away! The ExCeL Centre and London City Airport are just 20 minutes away by the DLR.
There are great walks to be taken as the Limehouse Cut (which leads to the River Lea) runs alongside the building. Turn left as you reach the canal steps (1 minute away) and you are walking towards the Limehouse Basin and Narrow Street which houses the infamous Gordon Ramsay Pub 'The Narrow' and the 'The Grapes' which was recently purchased by Sir Ian Mckellan or Gandalf as he’s known to his friends! Turn right at the steps and you can walk to the Olympic Stadium in around 25 minutes! On your walk to the Stadium you will pass the famous three Mills Studios which is the Largest TV/film studio in London. Films such as 28 Days/Weeks later, Sherlock Holmes II, Fantastic Mr Fox and literally hundreds more TV and films productions were/are made there. The canal side is also great for biking and getting around whilst viewing the great landscape that makes up East London. Boris (London’s Mayor) bikes can be hired within a five minute walk of the flat and be placed back at any other docking station around London.
Amongst the many fantastic things to do in London we would recommend visiting a few that are local to us:
Broadway market which is good for vintage clothing, cool shops and an array of eating places.
Spitalfields Market – if you love independent clothing and jewellery stalls and sampling international food then this is for you.
Brick Lane – very close to Spitalfields is this world renowned area for Asian Cuisine or as we say a good curry!
Columbia Road flower market – More vintage shopping and absolutely stunning flowers and plants.
If shopping is your focus then there is Europe’s largest indoor shopping centre, Westfield, just 6 minutes on the Docklands Light Railway.
