Need a London flat in September

Jump to last reply

I'm new at this so please forgive any errors I make. My husband and I , in our very early 50's, are travelling for the first time Aug - Oct this year. We are Australian and are travelling to Europe and the UK for 11 weeks. As part of the adventure we are self-driving UK for basically all of Sept. We need a London flat for 5 nights in the last week of Sept. Due to my hesitations and lack of knowledge I have already missed out on a few flats that I enquired about. We just can't decide which area is best to position ourselves. We want somewhere quite central - we hope to pack a lot into the 4 1/2 days we have. We are both very healthy and active and do not at all mind walking for considerable distances. We don't want a tiny studio though, but somewhere that we can relax after a day's heavy sight seeing should we need to do so. We want to see some of the main historical things plus do some shopping and try to fit in just sitting in the park. I've followd "idesofmarch" and "crazyfamilyof4" conversations and can see that I may get some very useful advice through this forum. I have also looked at a number of agencies and have found numerous flats within our budget. I would really appreciate advice on location. At this point the Theobald's Rd or Fitzroy St options are looking the best to us. http://www.vrbo.com/419928

one that is through both vrbo and the following site, but the vrbo # won't work for some reason
http://www.centrallondonholidayapartment.co.uk/holiday-apartments/central-london-buckingham-palace-apartment-sw1w - Fountain Court
and one through Ivy Lettings (I missed a couple that looked great through this agency because I kept hesitating!)
Bramber Rd, Kensington through www.ivylettings.com
I would really appreciate advice if anyone can be bothered to look these up and let me know. I know I haven't made this easy for you to help, but hope you can forgive my inexperience with this.
Thanks
