Celebrating the River Thames in September is Totally Thames 2018, an annual creative programme dedicated to bringing us arts and entertainment in connection to the famous London landmark and rivers in general.
Amongst this year’s highlights are the Bascule Chamber Concerts at Tower Bridge, an exhibition inspired by Rivers of the World, a Rhythm and Poetry Party aboard the Dixie Queen, and an inspirational musical tour of the River Danube.
If you plan on attending every event being hosted over the five-week period then we highly recommend you make the most of your stay by settling in at one of the finest apartments along, or close to, the River Thames. Below are ten of our favourites:
Arena Tower, Canary Wharf
Setting a new standard in boundary-stretching architecture, the newly built Arena Tower skyscraper affords guests views of London from 450 feet. Once you’re done with the private balcony you can step back inside to underfloor heating and a range of integrated appliances designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Barnet Grove, Shoreditch
A green-brown velvet chaise longue is the centrepiece of an already impressive sitting room at Barnet Grove, a room that already makes an impression with its landscape art and knotty wooden floorboards. A king size bed up in the eaves is another stand out element delightfully complemented by some unique looking bedside tables and sideboard.
Cheval Three Quays, Tower Bridge
Great views of Tower Bridge over the river Thames, the Shard, City Hall and the Gherkin are to be found at Cheval Three Quays, an extraordinary luxury serviced apartment in the Tower Bridge area. An excellent concierge service can help you arrange transport to just about anywhere you need to go.
Imperial Canary Wharf, Docklands
Free WiFi, a weekly maid service, cable TV, gym and a modern, fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher all make staying at the Imperial Canary Wharf a luxurious pleasure. Being located at the centre of the Financial District with easy access to the O2 arena, Greenwich Park and the National Maritime Museum seems almost like a mere bonus to the accommodation.
Limehouse Dock, Docklands
Nestled right between the City of London and Canary Wharf by the Limehouse Basin Marina are the Limehouse Dock apartments. As though being situated in one of the most convenient locations in London were not enough, these modern one bedroom apartments and studios are also equipped with contemporary bathrooms, wooden flooring and fully fitted kitchens. Some even offer great views from private balconies.
Lincoln Plaza, Docklands
An impressive new addition to the Canary Wharf skyline, comfort and space are in abundance at the Lincoln Plaza. Offering one of the most awe-inspiring views of the area, and up to three bedrooms, it is the perfect accommodation for a family get-away.
Millharbour Canary Wharf
London’s Financial District provides the breathtaking view from the windows at Millharbour Canary Wharf, beautifully furnished apartments with available parking and a concierge service. Weekly housekeeping, free WiFi and a breakfast bar mean that whatever you plan on doing in the area, you’ll always have a great, hassle-free relaxing space to unwind at.
New Providence Wharf, Docklands
Sipping champagne while sitting on a private balcony as your mind slowly drifts off into the amazing scenic view of the River Thames is never better than at New Providence Wharf, a sophisticated boutique studio apartment ideal for both business and leisure travellers alike. With the nearest train station only a 7 minute walk away, the very best of London has never been more accessible.
St George’s Square X, Westminster
An apartment that oozes old-school charm via its botanical prints and delicately patterned furnishings, St George’s Square X has to be seen to be believed. The sitting room impresses with an inviting fireplace, surrounded by comfy sofas and armchairs, with cushions scattered all over. An antique table and chairs set to continue the awe as you walk into the dining room, only to be challenged by the more contemporary kitchen space, where glossy black countertops encourage a spot of cooking.
West India Quay Rise, Canary Wharf
Stunning panoramic views of London from a beautifully decorated, 150+ square meters living space, modern 14th floor apartment may sound like fantasy accommodation, but over at the West India Quay Rise your dreams become a reality. Three spacious double bedrooms, three en-suite bathrooms plus a master bathroom featuring a rain shower system and luxury bathtub mean that the only downside to this apartment is that you may never want to leave.
