Being a capital city, there is a wealth of holiday lettings in London, across all boroughs.

Rent a house to possibly have a garden, most probably quite small but still nice to sit out in during warmer months. Modern holiday apartments may have balconies and luxury apartments could have a basement swimming pool.
In some respects, it does not matter too much where you rent in London the city has a large underground train network, called the Tube, which offers a fast and largely reliable service. London buses are also a good option. There are also black London cabs which although good for getting around, are an expensive choice. Driving in London is not advised due to congestion and lack of parking opportunities in the city.
