Despite its cultural, historic and scientific bragging rights, Bloomsbury has a well-healed yet understated atmosphere. The former home of literary greats such as Virginia Woolf and Charles Dickens, today it is dominated by the massive British Museum. Bloomsbury is an unspoilt corner of London, feeling more like a village. Bloomsbury is famous for its beautiful Georgian squares, world class universities, colleges and hospitals.

Bloomsbury is an often undervalued and overlooked oasis of calm in central London. The area is within the borough of Camden, one of London’s most diverse and eclectic boroughs. Basing yourself here for a holiday in London, you will be surrounded by action-packed places such as the West End, Soho, Covent Garden and the newly redeveloped King’s Cross area

Russell Square and Bloomsbury, the two large garden squares were set out and developed in the 17th century by the Russell family. Today these are flanked by stunning examples of Victorian architecture and sit either side of the fabulous British Museum, just a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Close to the apartment there are attractions such as the Charles Dickens museum (a 2 minute walk) and The Foundling Museum.

A brief 10 minute walk from the apartment brings you to the Brunswick Centre, a local hub for shopping dining and entertainment. You can find great shops such as French Connection and Joy along side cafes, a Waitrose supermarket and restaurants, including Carluccios, Itsu and giraffe. Entertainment comes in the form of the Curzon Cinema showing art house classics, foreign films and the latest Hollywood blockbusters.

A 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride takes you to the heart of one of London’s most famous tourist areas, Covent Garden. Find museums, the Royal Opera House, numerous theatres and the Piazza as well as a myriad of small streets to explore. You can find boutique fashion, high end designers and restaurants from around the world. Covent Garden is also on the edge of London’s theatre district, the West End. See a play, opera or musical with a pre or post theatre meal in the world’s most prominent theatre district.

Designed around Russell Square and the iconic British Museum, Bloomsbury is known for its plethora of world class institutions, such as University College London, The British Medical association and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The family friendly Bloomsbury holiday apartment is 10 minutes walk from Chancery Lane tube station. Nearby stations also include Russell Square and Farringdon stations. Getting around London is easy with quick access to the Piccadilly and Central Lines. As Euston, Kings Cross and St Pancras International (London’s Eurostar terminus) train stations are based on the northern borders of this district, travelling to the rest of the UK and Europe is easy too!

    Fabulous Stay

    We had a wonderful time in London, using this flat as our base. Lovely, very updated, air conditioned in the master and main room, great, relaxing space.

    Love the location, but I used to live in London and I like being just a little bit outside the core tourist zones, but able to quickly Tube or walk. I suppose I’d like the flat to be a few blocks closer to the Tube, but it’s only a casual 10 minute walk to Russell Square, and you’re in a lovely, neighborhood. It gives you also a chance to explore in ways you never would. King’s Cross St. Pancras and Highbury Islington; fantastic how the neighborhoods have come to grow, thrive and be so, so fun to hang around in – but “I knew them way back when,” so I’ve got special appreciation. If you’re in for just a few days and want to be right in the action 24/7, then a hotel or flat right in the midst of Covent Garden or Leicester or PIcadilly may be more for you. We were out mostly the whole day, so it was morning, late afternoon or late night when we were in the flat or neighborhood. So – perfect for that. We’d stay here again. Most people we know who love to stay in a flat (as opposed to a hotel) would love this experience.

    Karen and her team were a real pleasure to work with. Couldn’t have been easier or more trusted, or more responsive in our dealings.

    Great Enjoyable London Visit

    Nice, clean and newly upgraded with air conditioning that fit our family great on our visit to London. Great communication with Karen & Heritage Apartments. Would reccommend.

    Cool in so many ways!

    This flat was a life-saver for us. We spent a week in London with our two 80-something moms during the worst heat wave of the summer. Having an air-conditioned flat to return to after our forays into London museums and sights kept us all going. The location is outstanding, within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes) of three Tube stops. If you don’t want to walk even that far (and some days our moms did not), there are lots of buses right around the corner that can take you to the tube stops or just downtown. Get the Citymapper app for your phone and an Oyster card you can figure out the fastest way to get anywhere in the city. Nearby there’s a co-op food store as well as many take-away or eat in establishments for when you don’t want to cook. We particularly liked The Lady Ottoline. The flat itself is clean, spacious, comfortable and relaxing, with modern appliances and good internet. And did I mention the A/C? Note that the second bedroom does not have its own AC unit, so it got a little warm back there, but still OK. The flat was very much what it looked like from the pictures and descriptions, although actually sunnier than the pictures show. The Charles Dickens museum is a very short walk away; it is a very well done preservation of Dickens’ London residence you can check out very easily. I had a few questions about where to find things or how things worked in the flat when we first arrived and the office replied to my texts very promptly and helpfully. They also connected us with a taxi service to and from Heathrow which was also very helpful. I wish we could have stayed longer and I highly recommend this flat and hope to stay again.

    Our flat was simply lovely.

    We were so pleased with our flat… it was perfect for our family of four. So bright and quiet. It was nice to come home to after a day of sightseeing. Two tube stations, the Chancery Lane and the Holborn, were within walking distance. Such a wonderful little neighborhood. We loved our morning coffee and croissants just two doors down at the Hopper. Karen was so helpful in planning our stay. We are looking forward to our trip back to your wonderful city.

    Beautiful apartment in terrific location

    Our family of five enjoyed a wonderful five night stay here in late June. The flat is beautifully decorated and had plenty of space for all of us. Even though it is in close proximity to a number of restaurants, a grocery store, and several bus stops, the apartment was on a quiet street and it was easy to relax and sleep at night. Extra touches like air conditioning and a washer/dryer added to our comfort. We also appreciated the prompt communication from Karen who was extremely efficient and helpful. We loved our time here and would book again in a heartbeat!

    Fabulous Place to Stay in London

    This is a great choice for a place to stay in London. The apartment is away from the hustle and bustle of London, but anything you want to do in London is relatively easy to get to. The metro station is a 10 minute walk; buses are within a block. A large grocery store is near the metro station. The apartment is lovely, two bedrooms on either side of the central sitting area. A small, but well equipped kitchen; windows are large letting plenty of light in. The decor is modern and appears relatively new (bathrooms were fabulous!). The neighborhood is safe and I would say middle to upper class if Range Rovers parked on the street area an indicator! Within a 5-10 minute walk to the east is a great little area: Exmouth Market with shops and restaurants. Here you can find Gail’s for baked goods and La Ferme for a fabulous dinner. During lunch time, little restaurants are set up on the sidewalk where you can get anything from Paella to Shwarma. If you want to experience real London, this is a fabulous place to stay. 100% recommended!
