If the name “Bloomsbury” sounds familiar to you, it's probably because this neighborhood gave its name to one of the most influential groups of English intellectuals of all time. The 'Bloomsbury Group' included luminaries like Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, and E.M. Forster. Today, intellectuals still make up a large part of population thanks to the presence of the University of London.
This is a high-culture place to live and residents love the fact that it still maintains a village-like feel. "Beautiful" is one of the first words you will hear when they describe this area. With garden squares out of storybooks and romantic Victorian-era hotels, it seems to be caught in a different era. You will never run out of things to do: there are tons of historical houses, literary groups, tours, and museums. Interspersed between the historical spots are shops, restaurants, boutiques, and studios.
Bloomsbury really meshes into the surrounding areas, so you feel like there is more to your neighborhood than there actually is. Depending where you live, you’ll have access to the best of what London has to offer, from charming Clerkenwell to busy King’s Cross. Then you can head back home to your beautiful and quiet home here in Bloomsbury.
Bloomsbury is bordered on the north by St Pancras, on the east by Clerkenwell, on the south by Covent Garden, and on the west by Soho and Fitzrovia.

Steakhouse that won't break the bank.
This is neither a chain restaurant nor a franchise, it is a family owned and run restaurant and has been in business since 1995.
good food, good booze, good music, good vibe.
A no-frills, friendly little cafe, around the corner from Lamb’s Conduit, Espresso Room has a reputation as one of Europe's best.
