British Museum

The world famous British Museum is just a short walk from our Bloomsbury properties. The collection includes many iconic items from global history, including exhibits from pre-history, ancient Egypt, and famous British objects such as the Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon hoard. The sheer volume of items can be quite overwhelming! A must see for any visitor to London.

General admission is free, with booking recommended for special exhibitions.

Sir John Soane’s Museum

Sir John Soane’s Museum is the extraordinary house and museum of the British architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837), one of the foremost architects of the Regency era, a Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy, and a dedicated collector of paintings, sculpture, architectural fragments and models, books, drawings and furniture. His former residence houses his incredible collection, with some awe inspiring interiors such as the Model Room and the Sepulchral Chamber, which are truly unforgettable experiences. A true hidden gem and a short walk from Bloomsbury, the museum is located in one of the most historic remaining areas of central London.


A short walk west of Bloomsbury, Fitzrovia is a historic London neighbourhood that retains its period charm. Home to a wide variety of restaurants and boutique shops, Fitzrovia is historically important as the playground and meeting place of bohemian artists in the late 19th and early 20th Century. Beautiful historic pubs such as the Fitzroy Tavern on Windmill Street were the regular haunts of some of the great poets, writers and artists, including George Orwell, Dylan Thomas, and Augustus John amongst others. George Bernard Shaw, Virginia Wolf, Arthur Rimbaud and Thomas Paine were all residents of the area at various times. The small streets, Georgian buildings and alleyways offer a glimpse of history, with the opportunity to sample London’s vibrant culture of bars and cafes.

Barbican Centre

World famous for it’s architectural vision, the Barbican Centre is a housing complex and arts centre in the City of London. Pioneering the Brutalist style, the Barbican was an effort to reimagine urban living, creating sculptural and landscaped spaces within the City. Encompassing some of the oldest areas of the City proper, which had been destroyed by bombing in WWII, the Barbican stands testament to the vision and spirit of post-war Britain. With stunning architecture, concert halls, exhibition spaces, bars, restaurants and cafes, the Barbican is a fascinating place to visit. The Museum of London is also close by, as are numerous medieval churches and the historic Guild Hall.

St James’s Park

London is famous for its many parks, but we particularly enjoy St James’s. St James’s Park includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade, and is surrounded by landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Whitehall. The park’s famous flower beds at the front of Buckingham Palace are a familiar backdrop to pageants including Trooping the Colour, as well as state visits and other ceremonial occasions. Enjoy impressive views of the lake and fountain from St James’s Café, and watch the resident pelicans at feeding time, or while away a sunny afternoon in a deckchair. Yes, we said pelicans!
