Enjoy a premium, and centrally located, stay with our charming collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, including some duplex apartments, on prestigious Chancery Lane. The proximity to the City, Covent Garden, Leicester Square, and the West End theatre district makes these apartments the perfect base for both corporate and leisure travellers.
Viridian Apartments Chancery Lane is set over five floors within a Grade II listed building, originally a pair of nineteenth-century townhouses. Featuring high ceilings, bespoke double-glazed casement windows and contemporary light oak wood floors, these apartments offer natural light and space. The building’s historic features are complemented with elegant finishes throughout.
Stylish open plan living and dining areas come with comfortable furniture, and the bespoke kitchens are fully equipped with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, oven with hob and granite worktops. Bathrooms are contemporary, featuring Italian porcelain tiling. In the bedrooms, deep-pile carpets bring an additional touch of luxury, with ample space for storage included and top-range mattresses to ensure a great night’s rest. Select apartments have the added benefit of private outside space (roof terrace, terrace, or balcony). Complimentary Wi-Fi is included for all stays. The building includes a lift (although some steps are required to access all floors) and internal cycle storage.
Chancery Lane underground station is an 8-minute walk from our apartments, for onward travel via the Central line. City Thameslink station is a 10-minute walk away, for trains to King’s Cross, serving northern regional stations and Scotland, and St Pancras International for Eurostar services to continental Europe. London City airport can be reached in around 40 minutes via public transport.
Chancery Lane runs through the heart of London’s historic and current legal district, home to The Law Society’s headquarters as well as other major corporations and businesses. This makes it perfectly placed for business trips, yet with Covent Garden, Leicester Square and the West End nearby, this location is also a great choice for leisure travellers looking to stay central in London. There are plenty of attractions and notable landmarks within easy walking distance. Sir John Soane's Museum (9 min walk) houses a free-to-visit collection of antiquities, furniture, and artworks, located next to the capital’s largest public square, Lincoln’s Inn Fields – a great spot to enjoy a coffee on a sunny day. St Paul’s Cathedral (14 min walk) is an architectural icon, while a number of West End theatres are around 12 minutes’ walk, including the Lyceum, Novello Theatre, and Theatre Royal Drury Lane. It’s a short walk to the Thames Riverfront from our apartments; here you can walk towards Temple, where you’ll find art and culture at the Courthauld Gallery and Somerset House, or cross Blackfriars Bridge to discover the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and the vibrant South Bank.
Our Chancery Lane apartments are well-placed for visiting some of London’s most iconic markets. Shop for a unique souvenir at Covent Garden’s Apple Market, home to artisan stalls selling goods and crafts, as well as boutique stores. In the same complex, the East Colonnade Market is filled with jewellery stalls, sweet treats and handmade soaps, while the Jubilee Market offers an excellent selection of antiques and collectibles. Nearby Neal’s Yard is a colourful alley and courtyard packed with independent shops and places for al-fresco dining; head to the eponymous Neal’s Yard Remedies for natural skincare. Historic Leather Lane Market (11 min walk) is a brilliant spot for foodies with a huge variety of street food, as well as traditional stalls selling fashion, goods and flowers. Then head to nearby Hatton Garden’s famous diamond boutiques to enjoy some jewellery shopping. Or for a (literal) hidden gem, the London Silver Vaults is a unique underground marketplace for luxury silver shopping, just five minutes from our apartments.
Within a short walk of our apartments, you’ll find coffee shops, delis, gastropubs, and upmarket restaurants where you can enjoy a range of cuisines. Start the day off with Press Coffee & Co; with ingredients sourced seasonally, both of its locations (on Chancery Lane and Fleet Street) are great spots for a morning beverage. For lunch, brave the queues at popular local institution Dilieto, a tucked-away deli on Fleet Street which has been selling sandwiches for over a hundred years – get there early and enjoy the incredible selection of mouthwatering doorstop sandwiches. For authentic Vietnamese, try Banh Mi Bay in nearby Holborn, which has plenty of meat-free options too. Alternatively you might like to stop in at one of the many pubs in the area: The Old Bank of England has stunning interiors and honest pub grub, with the pies being particularly popular, while The Last Judgment serves up a ‘Steak and Sole’ menu. For dinner, head to Goucho for Argentinian steak, Brasserie Blanc for classic French dishes, Ave Mario for Italian staples in a cheerful and bright space, or Barrafina Drury Lane for Spanish small plates in cosy surrounds.
Start your evening with a show and head towards Strand to reach the West End theatres – The Aldwych Theatre, the Gillian Lynne Theatre, the Novello, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the Lyceum…take your pick of the evening performances! Alternatively, walk 14 minutes to The Garden Cinema, an independent joint screening new releases and indie flicks in funky art deco interiors, or catch a performance of world-class opera or ballet at the Royal Opera House. Afterwards, head back towards your serviced apartment where you can enjoy a nightcap at the quirky basement bar Baranis; with specialist herb-infused cocktails, absinthe and the UK’s only indoor pétanque court, you have all the ingredients for a unique evening. On Fleet Street, popular and long-established wine bar El Vino used to be a meeting place for journalists and is now a great spot to enjoy a diverse wine list and small plates.
