“Amazing Afternoon Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We had Afternoon Tea at the Bloomsbury Hotel. The staff were friendly and the hotel is very nice. Our waiter Jonathan was very attentive and very accomodating. We had lovely finger sandwiches, delicious cakes, scones & Creme Brulee. I would definately recommend this hotel.

“A beautiful place for a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

A great area of London. You can walk the streets where many famous authors have lived. Go past university college london where they have Jeremy Bentham's skeleton on display (before 6pm). There are also several cafes if you just want to soak up the atmosphere. This area regularly has farmers markets and films crews.

“High brow London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Home to many literary luminaries over the generations and quite a mystical pedigree - just drawn Treadwells from Covent Garden!
Great parks, colleges, theatres, social/charity facilities and events, cinema complex and shopping centre

“Lots to see and do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Bloomsbury has its own quiet atmosphere. Marchmont Street is nice with good shops including the long-established Gays The Word, the Brunswick Centre with great cafes and the Lamb pub on Lamb's Conduit Street which is very Victorian. See the outside of the famous Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital and go up to St Pancras. The British Museum is here and there is some Brutalist 1960s architecture just off Russell Square. If you like the famous Carry On films there are some plaques to Kenneth Williams.

It is lovely to wonder around bloomsbury especially in the summer! There are some really interesting squares and there are a lot of blue plaques to look out for!
