Northern Line, Bakerloo Line, Jubilee Line, Waterloo and City Line are a 2 minute walk away. Waterloo overground station is also one of London's main stations for travel out of London, with trains to all parts of the country leaving frequently.
Waterloo is also a docking point for the river boat, with regular journeys to and from Greenwich (with it's famous market and park) and Canary Wharf (London's impressive, high rise, financial epicentre). The views alone are worth a trip.
The Royal Festival Hall, Royal National Theatre, Hayward Gallery and British Film Institute are all right on your doorstep on the south bank. The Tate Modern is 8 minute walk along the riverbank, and the Globe Theatre just beyond that (a 12 minute walk from the apartment). A short (4/5 minute) walk through the immaculate new Jubilee Gardens and you are at The London Eye, the London Aquarium just beyond that. The West End with its museums, opera houses and numerous theatres, is a pleasant 10 minute walk over the river. The National Gallery in Trafalgar Square is an 8 minute walk over the river, with The National Portrait Gallery just beside it.
Although Waterloo is linked to all the best tube lines for getting around London quickly and easily, places like Leicester Square, Piccadilly and Regent Street are all walking distance. Walking along the riverbank affords you a stunning walk with wonderful London views to places like St Pauls (10 minutes) and London Bridge (18 minutes).
The apartment is minutes walk from numerous restaurants and bars lining the south bank (including the best of fine dining at the exquisite Skylon, with breathtaking views of the river). Soho and Covent Garden, with every varietal of restaurant you could ask for, are just a short away.
There is a 24 hour convenience store just 2 minutes walk away. Every Friday-Sunday there is a quality food market directly in front of the apartment building. A pedestrian bridge is the first thing you come to when you reach the river, and just beyond that is The Strand, with numerous practical shops as well as West End theatres, and Covent Garden, with its numerous fashion stores and its famous square with boutique shops and stunning market (opera singers frequently perform). All of these provide a great day out and you will be spoilt for choice with artisan coffee shops, restaurants and independent art and fashion boutiques as well as fine dining and organic produce.
The flat is 5 minutes walk from Waterloo station, which is a major railway hub with great links across London. There are also plenty of buses that are easily accessible. Being so central it's also easy to walk to a lot of places.
The flat is right at the heart of the Southbank, within a stones throw from the National Theatre, the Royal Festival Hall, the Hayward Gallery and the London Eye. The British Film Institute is located nearby and so it the BFI Imax Cinema. The walk along the river is delightful and you can get to the West End in no time at all.
