It’s a relaxed, friendly, and safe neighborhood to walk around with leafy parks, pretty architecture, and quiet residential streets. Fitzrovia is just to the west and feels slightly trendier.

The world-famous British Museum is in Bloomsbury – home to the Rosetta Stone and Parthenon Marbles. The museum offers free entry to main exhibits and is open almost every day of the year. There’s also the home of Charles Dickens where he wrote his manuscript for Oliver Twist, or visit the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology which displays everything from jewelry to ceramics.
