We love Bloomsbury


Living in Bloomsbury, London

Welcome to the atmosphere of a village right in the centre of London.

High culture may well be something that you can find in a range of different areas of London, but few will allow you the chance to enjoy this sort of aura without the pretence quite like Bloomsbury.

A traditional area within the centre of London, Bloomsbury has grown and bloomed into one of the city's most sought after regions. However, in spite of the love it receives from all comers, the locals have not let it go to their heads, and even now Bloomsbury remains like a village among the vast sprawling metropolis that is London. When it comes to being different, there is nowhere that does it quite as exquisitely as Bloomsbury.


Bloomsbury property 

 Today, Bloomsbury is one of the fastest growing residential areas in the West End. Centrally located with grand Edwardian and Victorian buildings, Georgian houses, mews cottages, Art Deco blocks and new developments, many in quiet streets, Bloomsbury is now a major area for West End living. It’s perfect for those wishing to have a peaceful life while being within walking distance from the best of what London can offer in culture and entertainment.

There’s no shortage of serviced apartments in this district, and you can read more about these and identify the most preferred locations on our serviced apartments in Bloomsbury page

Commercial properties are also available, and there are plenty of fine restaurants, designer shops and fashionable bars. Not surprisingly, Bloomsbury is also a preferred choice for holiday/vacation rentals.

We say:

A great little area that has never outgrown what it professes to be. A wonderful village vibe coupled with Central London living.

Russell Square

Your neighbours

The Neighbours
Literary lovers and professionals come together in this very upmarket area of the capital. It's a quieter way of life than some of the more well-known areas and this is reflected in the sort of neighbours you'll find in Bloomsbury. With a number of high class educational establishments in the area, it is also home to many students.

What you'll find

What you'll find
Market stalls selling a variety of foods, crafts and clothes, a good range of street performers and plenty to see and do at night. Covent Garden has it all going on, and thereDairy markets and traditional butchers among some literary delights. An almost rural haven in the capital ideal for those who want to relax close to work.

The Lifestyle
An area that is built around tradition and atmosphere, Bloomsbury has a more relaxed way of life than you might find elsewhere. Downplayed and modest, Bloomsbury offers a village lifestyle even in such a sought-after area of London.

Do not expect

The fast-paced modern way of life that you may think of when considering a move to central London and the big city atmosphere.

You'll fall in love with

You fall in love with
Just how different Bloomsbury is. If you work in a high-pressure industry with a fast-paced workload, it can be a fantastic place to head back to in order to chill out and forget about the city.

Local transport Transport
Bloomsbury's central location means that for anyone who is looking to get to and from the rest of the city, transport options are plentiful. For many people, walking will be an option given how much of the capital is an easy distance away. However, there are a number of fantastic options available on top of this. For example, there are a good few Tube lines nearby, with Russell Square, Holborn and Tottenham Court Road all serving the area well.
Local destinations Distances
The London Eye: 20 minute walk
The Tower of London: 30 mins on the tube
Heathrow Airport: 65 mins on the tube
Gatwick Airport: 70 mins by tube and train
Kings Cross: 25 mins on the tube
National Gallery: 60 minutes on the tube

Sights around Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury bars and cafes

The throwback style that washes over the area of Bloomsbury makes it the perfect place for cafes and bars in abundance, and it does not disappoint. There are an array of wonderful bars and cafes serving the multitude of students and academics milling around Bloomsbury, and the area's highlights will always be its more traditional bars. Try the Duke of York or the Lady Ottoline for a great feel of what Bloomsbury has to offer.

Bloomsbury arts

Few things are as important in Bloomsbury as its extensive arts market, and with everything from the world famous theatre Bloomsbury Theatre to a number of different educational establishments centred around the world of art and dance, there will be something for you to visit when you're living in Bloomsbury that will help you make that strong connection with the arts.

Sicilian Avenue in Bloomsbury

It might be a quiet little area, but don't let that fool you - Bloomsbury still has more than the capacity to shock and surprise. And there are few places that do this better than its own Sicilian avenue, where you can enjoy a range of authentic Italian stores and restaurants, specialising in food, drinks and fashion. It's a must see for anyone in Bloomsbury, whether moving to or living in the area.

Great places to...

Gail's Kitchen


Gail's Kitchen
11-13 Bayley Street

This delightful restaurant serves, brunch, lunch and dinner, and everything in between. Renowned for its great service and scrumptious menu, Gail's Kitchen is a veritable foodie's paradise and offers a dining experience not to be missed if you're looking for a place to eat in Bloomsbury.

The Queen's Larder


The Queen's Larder
1 Queen Square

There are a great many fantastic places to eat and drink in Bloomsbury, but few pubs really bring the area to life quite like the Queen's Larder, which has been a mainstay in Bloomsbury since the Georgian period, and is now one of the most beloved in the area.

The Brunswick Centre


The Brunswick Centre
Unit 57, The Brunswick

Everything really is under one roof at the Brunswick, where you can find residential units, high street fashion, boutiques and much more. The real jewel in the crown comes on Saturday, however, when the market in the centre comes to life, selling crafts, foods and specialist cheeses. It's definitely one that has to be visited.

All Star Lanes


All Star Lanes
Victoria House

When you're living in an area that's as different as Bloomsbury is, you'll no doubt be on the lookout for a night out that gives you something a little different as well. All Star Lanes is an upmarket bowling lane with a nod to the past that serves traditional diner food and a range of rare and expensive American bourbons that really have to be sampled.

Bloomsbury Fitness


Bloomsbury Fitness

As a gym primarily for students (it does also take non students on), Bloomsbury Fitness offers locals great value for money. With a range of classes and the chance to pay as you go, this is a place that you can delve in and out of as your schedule allows. Perfect for busy people working in the city.


Splash Salon


Splash Salon
Goodge Street

Another of the places in Bloomsbury that really plays into the whole idea of being different, Splash brings the essence of New York to London. With a bright interior and a quirky surrounding, not to mention the late night opening and very competitive prices, it is the perfect place for students. The salon really does offer it all under one roof as well, with shellac nails, laser hair removal and other services on offer alongside hair cuts.

Bea's of Bloomsbury


Bea's of Bloomsbury
44 Theobald's Road

With a tagline of "life is short, eat more cake", it's really not all that hard to see why Bea's of Bloomsbury is popular with locals who like to indulge. The traditional little shop is a great place to stop by to buy some of the best cupcakes you'll find anywhere in London, lovingly crafted in the store. And if you've got time, afternoon tea at Bea's is well worth stopping for.

University of the Arts London


University of the Arts London
Holborn High Street

What could be more inspirational than having the chance to see what the best and brightest of tomorrow have to offer to the world of arts? As well as being a fantastic centre of excellence in the art world, the university also holds a host of great events throughout the year to exhibit the work of those studying there, be it painting, sculpting, fashion or design. Who knows, you may well see some works from the next superstars in the world of art on your visit.
