This vibrant and historic area of London is a real cultural hub of theatres, museums, restaurants, bars and clubs. The area, named after the famous Battle of Waterloo, is a haven for young professionals to live, work and unwind. Home to the London Eye, BFI IMAX and plenty of green parks and space, you really are spoilt for choice in this amazing Zone One Location.
Property-wise, from the nineteenth-century terraces to modern riverside developments, there is a great mix of old and new to choose from as well as some very attractive period conversions. There is a great variety and apartments here are highly sought after by professionals and politicians due to the close proximity to Westminster and easy access to all areas of London. It is pricier than other areas south of the river, but you really get what you pay for if you’re after a location that gives you everything!
The central Transport Hub for the area is, of course, the impressive and historic Waterloo Station. Situated on the Jubilee and Norther lines, providing excellent links to the City and to Canary Wharf. Its national rail services also serve the south and west of England. You’re also spoilt for choice with key bus routes.
