About Charles Towers-Clark
After we had kids we decided to move around and explore other parts of the country and the world - which we are still doing. So we know what it is life looking for an apartment which is central and well furnished and is somewhere you would like to call your own.
Charles Towers-Clark purchased this Apartment in 2000

Very nice apartment
The apartment is very nice and situated in a great neighbourhood, close to museums, shops, restaurants... We really had a wonderful time in London. Charles is also a great host. We had to contact him a few times and he was always very reactive. We highly recommend this place.
This place was in a great location, with easy access to tons and restaurants and shops. Also easy access to district and circle lines allowing for easy travel throughout the city. The apartment was clean and as advertised with updated kitchen. Just know that the pictures shown are likely a few years old. After adding some simple touches like a candle and table plant for my long stay, the place became like a second home. Overall good stay!
Charles is a great host, he provides a guest guide with a lot of useful information and even 2 Bikes and Oyster Cards are available as well. Nice location in walking distance to many museums, Hyde Park, etc. in a very nice area.
We spent 4 days in this nice appartment. After booking Charles sent us immediately a guest guide with a lot of useful information. We felt very well in Kensington with all its nice pubs, restaurants and beautiful houses. The tube station South Kensington is away only a few minutes. With the picadilly line you can reach nearly everything. The included oyster cards were very helpful. The appartment was so nice and clean. We would recommend it at any time. Or better we will come back again. Many thanks to Charles, he really was a perfect host!
Fantastic location and excellent presentation
We were a family of 4 who found the apartment to be well appointed and presented. Charles provided everything required (and more) to make our stay in London such a pleasure and when next we visit London I would have no hesitation in staying here again.
My family needed a central location for two nights in February 2015 to be near to the museums and Royal Albert Hall. This was perfect. The owner corresponded fully and promptly with us on every question before and after booking. The flat is exactly as described except better! We loved the extras - the oyster cards are priceless and save you real money on tube fares. The view was stunning, the flat cozy and elegant at the same time. The owner is up front about the climb to the flat, however, so don't rent this if stairs are an issue for you. We cannot thank Charles enough for his hospitality and if we return to London, this is where we will stay! Helen in Alaska
South Kensington is one of the most prestigious areas of London and includes the Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum and the fantastic Science Science Museum all within a few minutes walk. Next door is Knightsbridge, where you will find Harrods, Harvey Nichols and other prestigious shops.
Most museums, sites and theatres, are no more than 4 direct tube/metro stops, or a 10-20 minute bicycle (see below) or taxi ride (depending upon traffic).
Also within walking distance you have the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Parks (Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park). South Kensington is a superb place to eat with restaurants from almost every part of the world - Lebanon, India, France, Italy, Thailand, America to name a few, all within 5 minutes of the apartment.
This apartment is also excellently located for transport links. The flat is between South Kensington and Gloucester Road Tube /Metro stations. A 10 minute taxi ride takes you to Victoria Station which provides a fast train to Gatwick Airport. Likewise Paddington station is about the same distance, which links to Heathrow Airport in 15 minutes. Alternatively you can take the tube without changes from Heathrow airport to South Kensington station.
