With numourous routes to get you around London, there is a bus stop which is a three to five minute walk from the apartment with buses going into the city, or if you prefer using the undergound, you can jump on at Turnpike Lane underground station and hop on the tube (the tube comes every 2-3 minutes and each stop is roughly two minutes apart, making the whole of London easily accessable.
