Abi

"I am so happy to call Bloomsbury my home after watching it transform over the past few years from dull and in need of some TLC to buzzing and homely. The diversity of people that live in the area really adds to the nice atmosphere. I appreciate how i can be right in the centre of one of the most exciting cities in the world, yet turn off a main road in to a quiet and well tended to street, for example Lambs Conduit Street, whi... more

  1. About Bloomsbury

    Bloomsbury is an area of central London between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous hospitals and academic institutions. While Bloomsbury was not the first area of London to have acquired a formal square, Bloomsbury Square, laid out in 1660 by Thomas Wriothesley, 4th Earl of Southampton as Southampton Square, was the first square to be named as such. Bloomsbury is home to the British Museum, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and the British Medical Association. It is also home to the University of London's Senate House Library, its central departments (including the School of Advanced Study), and several of its colleges (University College London, Birkbeck, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, School of Pharmacy, School of Oriental and African Studies and the Royal Veterinary College).
