Top apartments for a UK holiday Monday, 18th May 2020

You don't have to jet off around the world to experience that special holiday feeling - staycations are where it’s at right now. England has gorgeous golden beaches that seem to stretch on for miles, beautiful countryside waiting to be explored and cities bursting with heritage and culture. This together with the current restrictions and uncertainty over travel, makes staycation breaks particularly appealing this year.

Many English leisure facilities and tourist attractions are now reopening if they can do so safely, including outdoor gyms and playgrounds, cinemas, museums, galleries and theme parks. And new social distancing and hygiene measures are in place to make sure visits are safe and welcoming.


Have you considered the many benefits of staying in a serviced apartment for your next holiday or mini-break? They offer a private, flexible and self-contained retreat like a villa or holiday home and yet also provide guests with hotel-like amenities such as cleaning, maintenance and staffed service in order to make a holiday more comfortable and supported. If you're new to serviced apartments and what they offer, find out more here.

The Viridian Apartments portfolio of around 500 apartments are set in very convenient locations across London and South-East UK. Apartments offer fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, modern audio-visual systems and Wi-Fi. Our guests can relax and settle in from the moment they arrive. So, whether you’re looking for a romantic city break for two, accommodation close to friends and family, or a coastal family holiday, we will find an apartment to fit your requirements.

If you’re looking for a city break to the capital, we can offer a range of beautifully stylish apartments in the heart of London or within the quieter outskirts. Head to Primrose Hill for a picnic and epic views of the city. Roam some of the city's best parks, including the bicycle-friendly Hyde Park, wildlife-rich Bushy Park or scenic St James's Park. Enjoy alfresco lunches and sundowner cocktails relaxing in the fresh air with spectacular views at some of the best roof-top bars in the world. Whether you’re heading to London as a family or escaping for a romantic getaway, we’ve got you covered with over twenty perfectly located options.

If you're after a coastal retreat, Bournemouth has an award winning seven mile stretch of blue flag beaches and some of the balmiest temperatures in the UK. Located in a leafy area of Bournemouth, Exchange Buildings is a beautiful period property, renovated into an exclusive development of thirteen stylish apartments. With its modern interior décor, high standard of finish throughout and small communal garden with a secure bicycle store, it is easy to see why Exchange Buildings is a popular choice. Guests can choose between one bedroom or two bedroom apartments; the golden beaches are a few minutes’ walk away (although please check local news and steer away from anywhere too crowded, especially in the current climate) and nearby attractions include historic sites, nature reserves and ancient forests.

A nearby bustling coastal city is Southampton, famed for its award-winning parks, open water activities and twelfth-century city stone walls. The city is also a mere 20-minute drive to the New Forest. Our Southampton apartments have great transport links, a large garden area can be enjoyed by all guests and sheltered bike storage is free to use.

In the pretty cathedral town of St Albans, you'll find history, culture, entertainment, food, drink, shopping, green parks and more. The centuries-old cathedral features medieval wall paintings and Verulamium Park has ornamental lakes and the remains of the city's ancient Roman wall. Verulamium Museum is also open, displaying fascinating Roman artefacts including mosaics and the Sandridge Hoard of gold coins. Our apartments within Abbott House are in easy reach of the town centre with all it has to offer. Choose between studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom configurations, all with an interior finished to a very high standard.
