We've been considering a family vacation to London for 10 -14 days in mid-late July, and I'm wondering if anyone has any information or thoughts on the following two flats available through Ivy Lettings:
Both flats would probably work well for our family (2 adults and 2 teens), but we're unsure about their locations, especially in terms of their proximity to convenient transportation. We're also wondering about the neighborhood noise levels -- we're not persnickety in the least, except we would prefer a place that is quiet enough to allow for good/easy sleeping between, say, 11 pm - 7 am.
If anyone can share information about the flats, Ivy Lettings, the neighborhoods, transportation, etc. -- good and bad -- we'd very much appreciate hearing from you.
Also, we're wondering whether now is the time to pull the trigger on tickets from Los Angeles to London. We've been watching prices since January, and while the prices seem to have gone down quite a bit lately for June, they've only dropped a little for July (e.g., TA's showing lowest rates for July at around 1100 - 1200 pounds sterling (including all taxes, etc.). Does anyone have any opinions whether we should book now, or wait just a little while longer?
Finally, we're wondering about using some of our days to visit Paris. I'd be very happy to stay in London the entire trip, but dear husband would like to divide our time between London and Paris. If we limit our trip to 10 days, should we forget about visiting Paris for a couple of days?
Thanks very much!
