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..

    Where to begin? Lucy simply is an amazing host. I did a homestay with her for my last year of university (7 months), it all went really well. She's very kind, generous and accommodating. I loved having conversations with her, she's always been a supportive presence, besides being a very wise woman.
    It was really saddening to leave so urgently because of the covid-19 outbreak. Yet, even in these distressful times, Lucy showed a lot of understanding and helped greatly.
    Thank you Lucy, I wish you all the best!! xx

    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
