I live in a very Central part of London, about ten minutes walk to Tower Bridge. Easy access to London Bridge , Waterloo and the city of London. Access to buses the underground and trains to travel all over London and the rest of the country is very easy. I live with my son who is in his twenties and we have hosted students for the last few years, with a popular Language School that has classified us as a five star host family.
My home is friendly and cosy. It is quiet and peaceful and you will be made to feel welcome and free.
A walk to London Bridge and Tower Bridge is only minutes away along the banks of the River Thames. There are shops nearby and many places to eat including a weekend food market on my doorstep, the 'Maltby Street Market.'
Bermondsey Square is a five minute walk away and it has an Antiques Market on Fridays. it also has restaurants and a small cinema. Bermondsey Street offers a lovely walk with historic landmarks including 'The Leather Market' and 'St Mary Magdelene's Church'.
There is a launderette nearby but if you would prefer doing your washing at mine there is a small charge.

I speak fluent French and a little Spanish. I don't have any pets.
Looking forward to greeting you with a smile..

    Lucy has been a great host and I enjoyed my stay so much because of her hospitality! She was very helpful whenever I had questions and did her best to make me feel comfortable. Nice room, cute little flat, good access to public transportation. It’s very central, however, you can find lots of things to do in that area. I really recommend this homestay and am so thankful that I could stay in Lucy’s home!
    Thank you!!! xxx

    I really enjoyed my stay with Lucy this Christmas. She is a very kind person and very friendly. She also invited me to have Christmas lunch with her. Lucy's home is very close to the center of London and it's easy to go anywhere walking, so it's very convenient. Buses, underground and train stations are also close. I fully recommend this homestay. Thanks for all Lucy

    I really enjoyed staying hat Lucy's home. Lucy is a very nice and helpful person. No matter what problem I had, she was always there for me and tried to make everything easy and comfortable for me. She even let me use her private things, when I needed something. She gave me the feeling of being a member of her family and not like a stranger. I felt really comfortable and was sad when I had to leave. If I am visiting London again, I will ask to stay at her home again.
    Lucy, if you read this : I love you and thank you for everything! I wish there were more people like you in this world! May God bless you ! Much love ♡

    Appartement vraiment bien situé. Accueil chaleureux de Lucy, une belle personne. Un gentil chat "Ché" (génial pour les cat lovers comme moi) qui vient ronronner sur votre ventre si vous l'y invitez. Bref un bon séjour à un prix vraiment abordable. Merci Lucy.

    it was a great experience. Lucy lives near the center of London and only 10 minutes by foot from Tower Bridge. Lucy is easy going and a kindly person. She is open for conversation. I would have no hesitation in recommending this host family. Alexandre

    I enjoyed my stay with Lucy very much, she´s such a friendly, kind and lovely person, willing to help if you need. She gave me the key to the house and as she said " do what you have to do" so there was no problem with me leaving the house in the morning and coming back in the evening or late at night. She has a cat which is very friendly. Her son lives with her and he´s a nice young man, seemed to me a little bit shy. The part of London where Lucy lives is really nice, it´s close to Tower Bridge and Tower of London for example. I felt like at home with Lucy and I hope it wasn´t the last time we saw each other :)

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
