Zone 1, London

The London public transport system is divided into concentric circles, with zone 1 at the centre. Heathrow is in zone 6, and the furthest out is zone 9.

You’ll find most of the main sightseeing attractions in zone 1, and the vast majority of visitors here on holiday find that they only need to travel in zones 1 and 2 at most.

Zone 1 covers central London. This is the perfect area for holidaymakers and families, and especially for anyone who wants to explore the city on foot. There’s a huge amount to see in the contrasting and impressive areas of Westminster, Mayfair, West End, Kensington, Covent Garden and more.

We selected apartments close to Paddington, Bayswater, Queensway and Lancaster Gate.

Nearby these elegant neighbourhoods, you’ll find Hyde Park, Mayfair, Notting Hill, Little Venice and Kensington are just a walk away.

We know you want to make the most of your holiday time and visit sightseeing attractions quickly and conveniently, so our short stay apartments in zone 1 are located close to several Tube stations and bus routes.

You’ll be able to get around the city easily from any of our zone 1 accommodation. With central London’s extensive transport network, you’ll also be close to connections for other UK destinations.

Bayswater (District & Circle line)
