City Locations

The oldest area and most historic area of London with settlements dating back to pre-Roman times The City of London was the original city surrounded by walls and many streets and areas are named after the long gone landmarks such as Moorgate, Bishopsgate and London Wall.  Whilst the area spread out of it’s original borders the name, The City of London, remained. The City of London is now home to the financial capital of Europe and is home to some famous institutions such as the Bank of England and Lloyds insurance company.

Whilst many historic buildings were destroyed during WWII some famously survived, such as St Pauls Cathedral, and so today the City is an exciting mix of the old and new.  Historic landmarks and buildings today rub shoulders with experimental modern sky scrapers, often given nicknames by the local such as The Gherkin, the Walkie-Talkie and the Cheesegrater.   The historic landmarks still make up a big part of the fabric of the City, giving the City it’s unique character and buildings such as St Pauls Cathedral and the Tower of London and Tower Bridge always draw tourists into the area.

As more people choose to live in the City now the area also has a very lively social scene.  Some areas of the City area have become just as much a destination for nightlife as the West End and Shoreditch in the east of the City is one of the most vibrant, trendy areas to see and be seen in.

The Apartments by Prestige COVID-19 Update

Last reviewed: 27th March 2020

Amidst the global COVID-19 outbreak we at The Apartment by Prestige, like all other companies, are facing uncertainty around business operations.  During this unprecedented time, we continue to follow the government’s guidelines and monitor NHS and local authorities’ advice. We are dedicated to upholding and providing the highest levels of cleanliness & hygiene for our guests & employees. We’ve added additional measures to minimise the risk of spread and provide a safe environment for our guests and employees by providing additional sanitising products in our apartments and ensuring employees can work from home and avoid unnecessary travel.

In light of the developing situation we would like to inform you that we are currently taking bookings in our apartments with particular emphasis on keyworkers and people with short term accommodation requirements specific to the Covid-19 situation.  Unfortunately due to government restrictions on all non-essential work and travel any ongoing or new booking will receive a reduced housekeeping service where we will provide a contact-free delivery of our care package including fresh linen and towels, toilet paper and household cleaning products.   Currently we are only able to offer emergency cover for maintenance issues which can be accessed via the 24-hour emergency number provided to all guests.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on theapartments@prestigeapartments.co.uk.

We are in this together and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your continued support and patience during this challenging time.
