I recently took my family to London with help from the LondonEscape office, and I found that traveling is much more exciting when staying in the heart of the city. London is a magical place filled with dozens of small neighborhoods, and we chose to stay in the Fulham neighborhood near the river. We were gifted with an amazing townhouse that looked onto the Thames, and we had an amazing view of the stadium where Fulham plays their matches. #1: The Price We paid the same price we would have paid for a hotel, but we stayed in a townhouse that was not much smaller than our place back at home. Our family had plenty of room to move around, and we had enough rooms to accommodate all my children. The townhouse concept was new to us before this trip, but LondonEscape provided us with a townhouse that changed the way we travel. #2: The Location We could have stayed anywhere in the London area. A friend back home stayed in Chelsea using LondonEscape, and we wanted to have a similar experience. We were able to walk the city every day from our townhouse, and we even saw a soccer match at the stadium. The whole experience immersed us in London culture, and we avoided the use of a rental car because of our location. We took taxis around the city, and we felt as if we were at home. #3: The Furnishings We were pleased to find nice furnishings in the townhouse when we arrived. We loved the way the owner had set up each room, and my kids were happy to find a TV. Watching British TV for the first time was interesting, and we were able to relax in a house that felt like home. Stale hotel furnishings do not look the same anymore. Our trip to London was an excellent time that was made much more enjoyable by our townhome. We rented a place that held our whole family, and we enjoyed the city life for a few days before returning home. We will definitely take such a trip again.
