Find yourself in the birthplace of classical theatre and admire the same landmarks that once inspired the most celebrated poets and writers of all time. If streets could talk these would be the best storyteller’s in town so don’t worry if you half expect to bump into Oliver Twist as you wander towards London Bridge. The White Hart Inn, a setting for many a Charles Dickens’ novel still remains to this day. The nearby Tabard Inn was also the start of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It was here that London’s first theatres appeared and it has certainly retained its magnetism for art and entertainment.
Living and Eating Spaces
A modernised, city cowboy pad, and as exciting and unique as the streets outside, step inside Hatter Court to find high wooden loft ceilings, animal skin rugs and open spaces decked out in style. The living room has a large brown sofa and a worryingly comfortable black arm chair, sit down for a minute and you may well be there for a while! A brown trunk stylishly acts as a coffee table as lights dangle effortlessly overhead. There’s a balcony with table and chairs to enjoy, and of course a fully equipped and modern kitchen.
Beds and Baths
Ascend one flight of stairs to find a unique mezzanine bedroom, in keeping with the laid back character of the property, you will find exposed wooden beams, a dart board and a double mattress. Expect a second bedroom with a double red sofa bed and an en suite bathroom with bath and built in shower, toilet and basin.
Access and Suitability
This property is on the ground floor. There is an internal flight of stairs up to the mezzanine bedroom. This home is particularly suitable for couples and families or the single traveller.
You’ll find all the local amenities you need just a short stroll away, including ATMS and groceries. Links to the rest of London are easy from here. You are just around the corner from Borough tube stop on the Northern Line. Or a slightly further walk will take you to Southwark Tube, on the Jubilee Line.
In this area of London you can never be too far away from a traditional pub, and your new residence is no exception, try ‘The George Inn’ just down the road for a truly English pub experience. Or stroll to London Bridge and cast your mind to its countless appearances in Dickens’ work. Although you are in the heart of the city, splashes of green parks liven up the streets and you are nestled cosily amongst Red Cross Garden, Mint Street Park and Little Dorrit Park.
Don’t forget you are in the heart of theatre land with Shakespeare’s Globe nearby. Drenched in English history the choices are endless of sights and museums to take in. The Tate Modern, Imperial War Museum and now the EU’s tallest building, the Shard, are also within striking distance. For a slightly different experience you could take in the Mernier Chocolate Factory that masterfully combines an exhibition space with a theatre.
Finally don’t miss one of London’s most renowned food market- Borough Market is on your doorstep. Open Monday to Saturday, we highly recommend a trip.
