Oh my goodness I’ve just had THE BEST weekend in London for South West Four Festival!
Before I tell you all about the festival I just want to take a minute to tell you all about the amazing apartment we stayed in thanks to our friends at Citybase Apartments! This is the second time we’ve stayed with them and they didn’t let us down! To read about the first time please click here.
We stayed in the London Bridge II Apartments, in a two bedroom apartment because there was four of us and it was perfect. The apartments are just round the corner from London Bridge tube station, there’s a Tesco metro directly opposite and it’s walking distance to places like The Southbank, Tower Bridge, London Dungeons, The Shard and so much more! Like I said it’s literally a two minute walk away from London Bridge tube station so anywhere that you can’t walk to can be easily accessed by using the tube.
Obviously because it’s an apartment it’s self catering so having the Tesco Metro (a super market for those of you not from the UK) directly opposite the apartment was really handy it meant that we could stock up on food easily and didn’t have far to carry it at all. To be honest with you this was a big worry of mine, I didn’t want to have to walk miles with bags of food. Google maps tells you that it’s directly opposite but I’m always a bit sceptical of what Google maps say because sometimes when it says things are right next to places what it really means is, it’d be next to the place if the place was about 6 miles in the opposite direction.. but no, it really was opposite.
The apartment was lovely and spacious inside, it had two big bedrooms that were both light and airy with adequate amount of storage space in each, one bedroom had its own terrace, the other had massive windows that looked out onto the terrace.
There was one bathroom that consisted of a bath shower combo, a toilet and a sink. The kitchen came fully stocked with all of the basic utensils you need to cook with including plates etc as well as an electric hob, oven, fridge freezer, dish washer and washing machine & dryer combo.
It was a lounge / dining / kitchen room but it didn’t feel at all cramped, there was two comfortable sofas, one of which pulled out to make a sofa bed. There was a large TV that had all of the basic freeview channels, there was WiFi too which was super fast – something you don’t often get when you’re away from home! The best thing about the lounge / dining / kitchen room was the little balcony that it had, you could see this Shard from it and it was such a beautiful site!
It was just generally a brilliant apartment, I highly recommend these apartments for anyone looking for somewhere comfortable to stay in London, that’s not expensive, minutes away from the Tube and walking distance to a lot of the main tourist attractions!
And if this apartment doesn’t seem like something you’d be interested in (why wouldn’t it be?!) check out CitybaseApartments.com they have apartments all across London and a ton of other towns and cities so I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll love!
Enough of my babbling though, here’s some pictures that I took of the apartment!

I’d like to thank Citybase Apartment for all of their help and support in sorting this trip out for us! In particular I’d like to thank Graham, he was super helpful throughout the whole booking process!
I highly recommend Citybase to everybody! I feel like holiday apartments are the way forward, there’s so much more freedom than a hotel, it’s like having a home away from home, it also works out cheaper because you can cook for yourself so you don’t have to go out and pay for restaurant meals throughout your stay and ah I just love the whole going away and staying in an apartment thing!
Thanks again Citybase and thanks to YOU for reading this post!
