You're a minute's walk from the popular British Museum, about 5 minutes to Oxford Street and within 10 minutes of London's West End. Properties simply do not get much more central than this.
The apartment itself boasts two double bedrooms, a bright reception room and fully fitted kitchen as well as a spacious bathroom with separate shower and a rather luxurious free-standing bath.
The open plan kitchen come diner and reception room has a dual aspect to it and benefits from a bay window to the front of the property which floods the room with plenty of natural light. The wooden floor, original fireplace, numerous bookshelves and old grandfather clock add character to a room which is no doubt the focal point of the apartment. There is a dining table and the kitchen is fully equipped should you wish to dine in during your stay.
The stripped floorboards continue into the hall leading to two bedrooms, both of which are decorated in muted tones. The fresh white tiled bathroom caters for every need and gives you the option of a refreshing shower or for the more indulgent, a big roll top bath allows you to take a relaxing soak and unwind in the tub after a hard day of exploring the city.
There is so much within walking distance of the front door... shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars (to suit all budgets) as well as the Capital's top attractions including: The British Museum, Royal Opera House, Leicester and Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, South Bank and Regents Park.
Bloomsbury is an area of central London between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections and numerous cultural, educational and healthcare institutions. Museum Chambers is an attractive mansion block built in 1884 and is superbly located for a wealth of local attractions and amenities. The hustle and bustle of Soho and Covent Garden are both situated within a few minutes' walk and Holborn and Tottenham Court Road underground stations are also close by, making it the ideal base from which to explore the Capital.
For travelling further afield, London Underground station, Russell Square, is a 10 minute walk to the North and serves the Piccadilly line. For visitors arriving into Heathrow, this is very convenient and direct journey between any of the terminals at Heathrow straight to Russell Square. Kings Cross St Pancras is one tube stop away or just over a 10 minute walk from the property. From Kings Cross St Pancras there are connections on most of London's lines as well as mainline trains to various parts of the UK. For those preferring not to walk there are many buses, such as the No 7, which can whisk you straight down to Oxford Street.

The London region
Central London/Zone 1
Enticing Bloomsbury is known for it's Georgian terraces, cool white garden squares, leafy boulevards, cobbled lanes and wide streets. Conveniently located in the absolute centre of London it has no official boundaries, but can be roughly defined as the square bounded by Tottenham Court Road to the west, Euston Road to the north, Gray's Inn Road to the east, and either High Holborn or the thoroughfare formed by New Oxford Street, Bloomsbury Way and Theobalds Road to the south.
The area gives its name to the Bloomsbury Group of artists, the most famous of whom was Virginia Woolf, who met in private homes in the area in the early 1900s. It has been home to various celebrities at one point or another including Ricky Gervais, Bob Marley and Charles Darwin, as well as other great writers, scientists and philosphers. It was in Bloomsbury that Karl Marx created communism, Virginia Woolf defined the twentieth century British novel, and Charles Darwin first conceived the theory of natural selection.
It is home to the prominent British Museum, containing seven millenia of human art and artefacts, and plenty of other academic institutions including Birbeck college, the aesthetically pleasing University of London Library and RADA, London's grandest drama school. With its broad student population, there are bars, bookshops and eateries galore, as well as a host of quirky boutiques in which to buy everything from antiques to sunglasses.
