Moments away from the Abbey and Westminster School, Little College Street is located in the heart of historic Westminster, with views of the Houses of Parliament from the property.
The area is steeped in over 1,000 years of royal and government history and widely regarded for its exquisitely preserved examples of 18th and early 19th Century architecture. It is a tranquil and attractive environment, enhanced by its proximity to the open spaces of St James’s Park and Green Park with the River Thames nearby.
Westminster and Victoria provide excellent local amenities as well as being a destination “lifestyle hub” due to its cultural venues such as the Tate Britain Gallery. The world-renowned clubs, restaurants, theatres, galleries, and designer shops of Mayfair and St. James are also easily reached.
Westminster has excellent transport links around London, easy access to the legal and financial centres, and to airports. St James’s Park and Westminster underground stations are close-by, as is the river boat service from Westminster and Tate Britain piers. Victoria Station has both underground connections and mainline rail network services including the Gatwick Express.
