Rejoice—you can finally search for the best Airbnbs in London again. After a long, long 16 months, the United Kingdom has finally and completely re-opened for the first time since the pandemic began.

So for those who have been dreaming of thrifting in Shoreditch, visiting the fashion exhibits at the Victoria & Albert Museum, explore the hallowed halls of Buckingham Palace, and strolling through Hyde Park, you can officially start planning the trip your Anglophile heart desires, and wholeheartedly embrace the dynamic city around you. (To quote Charlotte Brontë, “I like the spirit of this great London which I feel around me.”)

On that note, we took it upon ourselves to peruse Airbnb for the coolest listings. If you want something lavish in London, opt for a Kensington penthouse adorned in a black-and-white color scheme. If you’re looking for something edgier, then a loft in Hackney is just your style.

Below, peruse the best airbnbs in London.

Inside this 120-year-old building (almost a spring chicken, by London’s historic standards) is a vibrant loft with exposed brick and a primary-color palette. It’s steps away from Redchurch Street, a stretch Vogue has previously described as a “a design lover’s (and efficient traveler’s) dream come true, with some of the city’s coolest stores, restaurants, and cafés—even a 17-room boutique hotel with a rooftop bar—packed into six short blocks.”
