QUIET ONE BED FLAT IN GREAT AREA VERY CLOSE TO CENTRAL LONDON home swap
Well-located one bedroom flat on the top floor of an old Edwardian townhouse.

About the location
Queen's Park, nice village feel, lots of restaurants, bars and cafes. Very good weekly farmers' market.
Excellent transport links. Tube station (Queen's Park, Bakerloo Line) is 5 mins walk away. Plenty of buses going to all areas of London. You can be in Central London (i.e. Oxford Circus, Covent Garden etc.) in 20 mins by tube.
Portobello Road/Notting Hill are about a 20 min. walk away, or a very short bus ride.
Just up the road is Little Venice, with its canals and traditional pubs. There are two parks within walking distance and Hampstead Heath is a few train stops away.
There is also a very good sports complex nearby (short bus ride or 20 min. walk) with a large multigym, 30m pool and one of London's best (and oldest) spa and sauna complexes.
All in all, this is a great base for a trip to London – very close to the centre, yet with a nice local neighbourhood feel.
