About Adrian

We work in the high end international travel business.. based in Switzerland, but spend time travelling all over the world. My wife and I have just finished renovating a beautiful medieval château in South West France. Château St Paul is a bit of a project with its own church among other things.. Available now to book for seminars or weddings.

We have all sorts of old artefacts. some of which find their way into the London homes others are staying put in France.

Adrian purchased this house in 2000

Why Adrian chose Woolwich

This London property has easy access to all parts of the Metropolitan area.

Situated next to the Thames it has the added bonus of being near to a Thames Clipper boat pier, this service runs into Westminster and several other stops on the way.. London Bridge, Tower of London.

The train station near-by offers access to the Underground and Overground train service..the station is situated in the market square.. fantastic for shopping.. one of the few real London markets still in existence.

The house is very easily accessed from any of the airports, especially London City which is 5 mins away on the DLR train.

The areas around the house are carefully managed gardens, parks and walkways along the Thames and around the museum, with limited vehicle access, it is very quiet for London.

What makes this house unique

With the park, gardens and Thames walkway at the front and around the house.. a remarkable lack of traffic and noise, this house is a fantastic place to return to (especially on the boat) at the end of a hectic day in the City...

Maybe stop at one of the three pub/restaurants..The Dial Arch, The Guard House (a little more formal) or The Tap Rooms micro brewery with lawns and trees outside in an area that doesn't allow any traffic..and sit on one of the old cannons on the lawn and have a beer.

Or equally a fantastic place to wake up in.. cross the park to the Corner Stone Cafe and get a Latte, and get a morning smile from the people you pass and the staff at the Cafe..is this really London?

Near the cafe is a Tesco mini supermarket and a M&S FoodHall..

The market by the station.. a short walk.. has an amazing selection of fruit and veg.. and the High St has all of the well known English brand shops.. There are also classic East London Cafe... Eel and Pie Shops, a must try.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We and the children enjoyed our stay.. thank you very much.

Baiba and Andrei.

It has been a good place to stay with the new connection for the Excel. The food at the Tai Tap is.. too much.

The Moto Team

Thanks for the travel tips..we all enjoyed our stay..and the shopping.

Jacques, Miriam and the girls..

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Great location and very clean. The overall layout didn’t really suit us as we are all older people. The kitchen is on the ground floor but dining/living room is on the first floor which meant having to go up and downstairs with food. I dare say this wouldn’t bother younger people. Also be aware you literally have to provide everything. Hand soap, washing up liquid,salt and pepper etc. However there are supermarkets nearby. Water taxis were great and we used them all the time. Neighbours were also friendly and helpful.

Spacious, clean, comfortable house in interesting, historic area.

  • 5 of 5

As two families of 5, we had lots of room to enjoy the house which was clean and comfortable.

We travelled by DLR, tube, bus and Thames Clipper and found all to be quick and hassle-free from Woolwich.

We'd recommend the house and would love to return.

Comfortable and in a good situation

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family of 9 stayed here for 2 nights. It is a very comfortable house on three floors including one bedroom on the ground floor, and suited our needs very well. All the beds are double beds and one room had 2 double beds, which may not suit every group's needs but they were also very comfortable. There is 1 parking space and the house is within walking distance of the Docklands light Railway and the Thames clipper, MNBA. Both excellent ways to get into central London. Minor problems were soon fixed and the caretaker very friendly and helpful. The owner too sent very helpful emails before the visit also answering all my queries promptly.

Great hen weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for my sister's hen-do in December and had a really great time. The house is set along a beautiful street with a green space directly in front. The house itself is lovely, every bedroom is great and all kept very clean and tidy. Adrian was very helpful and gave us good recommendations for taxi services as well as pointing us in the right direction for the local gastropub, which walking distance away and a great find. We were a party of ten in total and there was still plenty of room, not everyone needed to share a bed. As the house is in a part of London I wouldn't normally travel to, it felt like a proper trip away, but you can still get into central London very easily. For hen and stag dos it is great as Bunker 51 is very close-by, which offers paintball and lasertag. Would also be great for a smaller group of friends visiting London or a large family.

Although the Thames is a river..by this point the tidal movement is so large the water is as much sea as river. Walking along the river path you definately feel it's more sea.. especially at Galleons Reach. So where the coast stops.. is a grey area. If its definition is where the tidal movement ceases.. this is definitely the coast.

The Thames Barrier..is London's attempt to stop the sea..

Do Not Attempt to Swim or Walk on the Mud.. Extremely Strong Currents..Quicksand..and Fast Tide.


London City Airport (LCY).. 5 minutes on Tube (DLR)

London Heathrow (LHR).. 1hr 10mins Tube

London Gatwick (LGW).. 1hr Tube/Train

London Stansted (STN) 1hr Tube/Bus

London Luton (LTN) 2hr Tube/Train

Channel Tunnel 1hr 20min Car

Dover Port 2hr Car

We would say that a car here is not needed. But if you require a space can be made available by prior arrangement. We are outside the Congestion Charge Zone.

Cars can be hired from the major rental firms at London City Airport


If you're here.. you're probably visiting London..

Depending which form of transport you wish to take..

Boat.. 35mins to Westminster Express Commuter.. O2 Dome 5mins.

Train 20mins to Charring Cross..15mins London Bridge..

Tube 10mins to Canary Wharf..10 mins O2 Dome.

Tube 7mins to link with Jubilee Line Canning Town

Tube 10mins to Excel Centre

Further Details:

If you wish to grab a quick snack the Royal Arsenal has plenty of Cafe pubs and a Tesco supermarket. You can get a good meal at our local Dial Arch Pub or Tai Tap Chinese starting at less than £4 for a Main Course (Tai Tap).. an immense serving..enough for two,possibly.. Also all major UK banks are in the High St.

If you want fruit..the market 3mins walk 6days a week.. is one of the few remaining 'real markets' in London.

A sports centre is just along the river 'The Waterfront' but most people find walking around London exercise enough. Entry to the smaller on-site gym can be arranged.

We may be able to provide some guidance with regards to visiting London. We can send you Links to Websites that may be of some help..especially with regard to local travel and events. We have some actual experience having given personal guided tours and we speak several languages. French,Spanish,Italian,Russian..and possibly some more.

Cars in London.. it can be hard work to drive into the centre of London.. the Congestion Charge..£8 per day.. finding parking, the cost and the fines..if you get one can become very expensive..and if they tow your car..

Motorcycles in London.. Using Motorcycles & Cycles to get around London ourselves..we think its normal.. but for those that are not City Bikers..it can be lively. Nothing quite like fifty bikes leaving the traffic lights at the same time... There is parking provision for Bikes in London.. but the explosion in their use means the parking capacity has not yet caught up..

It is much less Hectic at weekends.. We generally think it's worth doing.. but you must always Lock it.. We can supply extra locks/chain.

Brighton is a nice day out from London on a Bike..

Cyclists can take their bikes on the Boat up to Westminster.. but they may change this. We have made further enquiries and will update their position. We are also looking at supplying bikes at the house..

The Tour de France went past the end of the road..quickly..
