Spent lockdown in a flat that just didn't feel like home? From shoebox-sized rooms that lack natural light to landlords who go entirely silent whenever something needs fixing, for London renters domestic bliss can be hard to come by. Until they find out about Folio London, that is.
Folio London is all about giving renters what they really want. No gimmicks, just smartly designed, well-located apartments and perks you'll actually want to take advantage of (free furniture, flexible tenancies, pet-friendly abodes — the list goes on). And they've really pulled out all the stops with their latest development, Gallions Point.
Located opposite Gallions Reach DLR station, Gallions Point is a stylish new collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments in an ever-evolving corner of east London. Each of these beautiful, pet-friendly rental homes come with contemporary furniture at no extra cost, loads of natural light, and private outdoor space in the form of a patio or balcony.
Resident parking is available, and there's even a concierge service for your comfort and security. The development even has its own onsite Co-Op, so there's no need to skip your morning cuppa next time you run out of teabags.
Gallions Point is ideal if you're want to be within easy reach of the capital's best bits. From here, you can get to both the City of London and Canary Wharf in under half an hour, making it a great base for commuters and culture vultures alike.
Step out your front door and within thirty minutes you could be exploring the Square Mile's historic pubs, ancient ruins, or glitzy high-rise restaurants. You could head south to the Isle of Dogs for dinner, a shopping spree, or a wander around London's largest outdoor collection of public art. You've also got fast access to London City Airport, making holidays and business trips that much more convenient.
And you don't have to hop on the DLR every time you want to be fed, watered, or entertained. Closer to home, Gallions Reach Retail Park has a plethora of casual dining options, and neighbouring development Royal Albert Wharf has its own cafe and restaurant. You're also right by your very own creative hub in the form of RAW Labs by Bow Arts, which runs a lively programme of workshops, exhibitions, and weekly yoga classes.
More into that outdoor life? Thanks to its proximity to the River Thames, Gallions Point is great for cyclists (or anyone who enjoys a nice stroll along the waterfront, really).
Like what you've heard so far? Wait till you hear this: one-bedroom apartments at Gallions Point start at just £1295pcm. Not too shabby when you consider you're just a 25 minutes train ride away from London Bridge*.
