The Royal Arsenal provides the unique experience of living a modern life in surroundings where much of the history of the United Kingdom has evolved...and much of the world! The view and ambiance created by the flat's positioning, outlook and period features makes staying here a one-of-a-kind experience. You can stay in a 'new build' anywhere but no other location in London affords the opportunity to stay in an area/building/development that influenced the history of the world in such a profound way. For example, as mentioned in America's national anthem, 'the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air' all came from the Royal Arsenal--examples of which are on display at the Firepower Museum. Also on display are the Victoria Cannons from which all Victoria Cross medals are struck. The highest honour awarded to members of the British military. This property is perfect for couples, families or friends, and its location within the Royal Arsenal itself is unique and special with amenities close to hand and superb travel links to ANYWHERE. The flat provides a one-of-a-kind experience. Our view of the Thames and historic Royal Arsenal buildings, our location within the preserved and gated 'golden square,' and the ambiance and spaciousness of the flat are unique within both the Royal Arsenal and London. It is so easy and comfortable to get anywhere in London whether Central, East, West, North or South utilizing: the Thames Clipper, Train or DLR/Tube. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable is either in the flat or can be easily obtained within the Royal Arsenal, or in the shopping centre just across the road from the Royal Arsenal Development. And nothing beats the friendly and authentic welcome of London's East End! More

We went there march 2017 and it was the most perfect holiday I ever had. We took an early flight from Germany so we were in London early in the morning but they made everything possible, that we could already put our suitcase and everything in the apartment while they were cleaning it. We got a call a little bit later that the apartment is cleaned and we can get inside. Excellent service. It was super comfortable to stay there for a week. I wish I could have stayed longer :D The transport into the city takes a while but still easy as you have everything nearby. The only thing missing was a toilet brush.
