There are five separate sets of self catering self contained accommodation, all with their own unique charm and appeal. All our guest quarters are rather different from the usual Guest House, and the ability to cook in ‘at home’ to avoid the expense and hassle of eating out every day is a bonus. We provide a welcome starter pack of breakfast provisions, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, butter, jams and fruit juice. Should you wish for an ‘English Breakfast’, there is a brilliant restaurant round the corner, Riverside 2, and there are many good cafes, pubs, bistros and other eateries in the area.
Quite close by are many grocery stores, shops and markets, and of special interest, London’s pride and joy, Borough Market, situated in the historic village of Southwark, just a 20 minute walk or a quick bus ride away. You can enjoy browsing the stalls, and buy an immense selection of different foods to bring home or even eat there!
Bligh House is in a fun and safe area, close to the wonderfully vibrant South Bank complex with its exciting restaurants, theatres and street entertainers. A 10 minute walk to the London Eye, 20 minutes to Covent Garden or, with our excellent transport facilities, only a walk or an 8 minute bus ride to Piccadilly and London’s famous West End theatreland.
Your hosts, Gayna and Simon, come from theatrical and musical backgrounds. Enthusiastic and mad about London they will take great joy in boring you with everything that London has to offer!
Lambeth Palace, the Houses of Parliament, a trip down river to Historic Greenwich, the Tate and National Galleries, the Royal Festival Hall or National Theatre – all within easy reach.
Snippet from a Tripadvisor review
We were looking for a special accommodation for our teenage granddaughter’s first London visit, and we found it. Captain Bligh House is a tiny vintage jewel of a house. We stayed in the Crow’s Nest, the Film Studio and the Captain’s Cabin and loved them all. This particular trip, which was far from our first, will become the measure against which all other London experiences will be measured, in no small part due to our accommodations and wonderful hosts. We’ll never again stay anywhere else.
Last week 6 of us rented 3 rooms on a stopover – 4 nights in London, after an Ireland tour. I found this B&B thru Trip Advisor and it was every bit what we expected. Gayna & Simon the owners met us on our arrival and gave us a short breifing as to the coming and going of the B&B. The rooms were very clean and decorated so tastefully. It was certainly located as to make easy conecttions to the underground or using the bus system. There was local pub just around the corner or other restaurants close by. If we ever return to London you can be sure we will stay again.
