Interesting Facts About Bloomsbury

Interesting Facts About Bloomsbury You May Not Know

It is always a pleasure to explain to buyers what makes central London’s neighbourhoods special. This is particularly true for Bloomsbury, which people all over the world may instantly associate with the publishing house that made J.K. Rowling’s career. Some may associate the area with the Bloomsbury Set of writers, artists, philosophers and intellectuals, including the likes of E.M. Forster, Virginia Woolf and John Maynard. But only an estate agent Bloomsbury will be able to share interesting tidbits.

Interesting Facts About Bloomsbury

  • The numerous metallic tokens struck into the floor at Brunswick Centre. The centre was originally a field that was part of the grounds of Foundling Hospital, in whose care penniless mothers would leave their kids. The tokens are recreations of the trinkets that helped identify the kids under care.
  • How green it is despite being so central. For picturesque and abundant foliage, head to Russell Square, where majestic trees greet you at every winding path, chestnut trees provide ample shade on sunny days and the autumn colours are enchanting.
  • Bloomsbury has so many museums that there is a top ten just for the area. If you’re already familiar with the British Museum, Charles Dickens Museum and Foundling Museum, leave it to an estate agent Bloomsbury to introduce you The Cartoon Museum and Sir John Soane’s Museum, a home museum featuring the drawings, paintings and antiquities of neo-classical architect John Soane, whose most famous works include the original Bank of England architecture and Dulwich Picture Gallery.
