The insider guide to Bloomsbury
Bloomsbury has a reputation as London’s most learned quarter, dominated by the dual institutions of the British Museum and the University of London. It is perhaps best-known internationally for the long list of former literary inhabitants, among them Virginia Woolf, TS Eliot and Charles Dickens. Though the pretty Georgian squares and streets sit well within the boundaries of central London, Bloomsbury has all the perks of village life. Encompassing the wonderfully Victorian Lamb’s Conduit Street and the legendary, albeit slightly kitsch, Brunswick and Marchmont shopping strips, to this day Bloomsbury remains a gathering place for young creatives. Home to folk who champion the art of liberal self-expression through art, literature and fashion, it is one of the most exciting and underrated neighbourhoods in London.
