We have a lovely double room for rent which is only 3 mins walk to Surrey Quays Overground station and 10 mins walk to Canada Water underground station.
Excellent Transport Links
The flat is 5 minutes walk from Surrey Quays station on the London Overground and 10 mins walk to Canada Water tube station on the Jubilee Line. Canada Water is only 2 stops from London Bridge, one stop to Canary Wharf and 15 minutes to Stratford International for Westfield shopping centre and the Olympic borough. We are also 15 mins walk to South Bermondsey British Rail. There are plenty of local buses including buses to Greenwich (10 min bus ride), the City and West End (Soho / Oxford Street). And if you fancy a boat ride on the Thames into Central London or the O2 Arena, Greenland Pier is a 15 minute walk away for river boat services.
There is an abundance of eating places on the high street within a walking distance including but not limited to, a Vietnamese restaurant which also serves Thai and Chinese cuisine, a South African deli, an Indian restaurant and a traditional fish & chips shop. Surrey Quays Leisure Complex is within walking distance and here you will find Frankie & Bennys, The Quays (American Bar & Grill), Pizza Hut as well as a multiplex Odeon cinema and bowling alley (Hollywood Bowl). There are also several local pubs including Surrey Quays' very own floating pub the 'Wibbly Wobbly' at Greenland Docks. The O2 Arena is easily accessible by tube from Canada Water or via the river boat (Thames Clippers).
Surrey Quays shopping centre is a short walk from the flat. For more serious shopping, you can jump on the tube at Surrey Quays/Canada water to one of the London's most famous and biggest shopping malls, Westfield Stratford which is only five stops away from Canada Water on the Jubilee line.
Things to do
I think it's impossible to run out of things to do in and around London and we are fortunate to be right at the heart of most of it. There is a lot of history in the surrounding areas of Surrey Quays/Rotherhithe, Deptford and Greenwich. To list a few, there is a walking and/or cycling trail along the nature reserve and along the river. There are also several historical gems in the Rotherhithe dockland area. The Cutty Sark at Greenwich has recently been beautifully revamped, then there is of course the famous Greenwich market, and finally, not forgetting the Royal Observatory. It really is impossible to list everything here but there is definitely something for everyone.
The only requirement is to tidy and clean up after yourself and to please keep the noise down in consideration. Please note smoking is not allowed in the flat or on the balcony.
