A district packed with cultural interests, Bloomsbury is characterised by neat green spaces and some of London’s finest Georgian squares. Famously the haunt of the artists, writers and intellectuals who formed the Bloomsbury Group, the area is an academic centre where many university buildings are located. Some of the world’s most notable artefacts are held in the British Museum and its Great Court is the largest covered space in Europe. Entertainment-wise, Theatreland overspills into Bloomsbury, the Dominion and Bloomsbury both being here. Tottenham Court Road is a must for electrical shops and Charlotte Street and its surrounds are filled with quirky shops and fashionable places to eat and drink.
