Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury Area Guide

Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden 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 Georgian garden squares, literary connections and numerous cultural, educational and healthcare institutions. While Bloomsbury was not the first area of London to have acquired a formal square, Bloomsbury Square, was the first square to be named as such.

In summer these squares are filled with students and office workers alike. This tranquil setting makes it a very pleasant and pretty place to call home, plus a lot of the properties are spacious and airy, many hosting outside space and balconies. There is a large amount of portfolio landlords who are keen to keep their properties contemporary and upmarket.

The area is surrounded by numerous tube stations, the closest being Holborn, Goodge St and Russell Square.
