British Museum, The University of London and Bloomsbury Theatre

Choose a Bloomsbury hotel and you’ll have the British Museum within walking distance. Its permanent collection of sculptures, painting and artifacts add up to a staggering total of eight million pieces. The exhibitions cover history, culture and art from across all continents. Don’t miss the stunning Great Court in the museum’s inner courtyard, with an intricately designed glass roof and a reading room at its centre.

Bloomsbury is also home to The University of London, Bloomsbury Theatre and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Book lovers, meanwhile, can visit the former home of one of England’s best-known authors at the Charles Dickens Museum.

King’s Cross, St Pancras and Euston stations are also only a few minutes’ walk away, with numerous links to southern and northern England and beyond. To get to Bloomsbury, hop on the Piccadilly line and exit at either King’s Cross St Pancras or Russell Square.
