London Serviced Apartment during the Thames Festival

For any visitors staying in the capital, a London serviced apartment should by high on their radar when looking for accommodation. Suitable for individuals, couples and groups/families, when compared to a hotel in terms of price, lever of service and size, a London serviced apartment provides a great option.

The Thames Festival will take place this year over the weekend of 10th and 11th September. First started in 1997, the Mayor’s Thames Festival has expanded year on year to become London’s biggest free outdoor arts festival and an important highlight on the London events calendar. People of all ages will be out to enjoy free entertainment in a lively, festival atmosphere. The festival commissions new work and transforms outdoor spaces around and on the River Thames with a mixture of music, dancing, carnivals, street art, river races, pyrotechnics, food and feasting. The festival is delivered by the Thames Festival Trust, a not-for-profit charitable trust with an independent board of trustees.

Thames Festival’s spectacular finale event, the Night Procession, will have over 2000 musicians, dancers, performers and masqueraders who will come from across the country and the world with lanterns, illuminated costumes and fantastic structures. Every year key London roads are closed to traffic for The Procession which takes place on Sunday 12th September, starting on Victoria Embankment, travelling east crossing the Thames at Blackfriars Bridge, and finishing behind the Royal National Theatre and Southbank Centre.

A London serviced apartment provides you with all the luxury and service you will find in a hotel, but also gives you so much more space than an equivalent hotel room. Having a separate bedroom to sleep in than the rest of the apartment gives you such a psychological boost when staying away from home. It means that you’re not confined within the four walls of a hotel room and can relax in the extra space of the open plan living and kitchen area.
