Nestled in the very heart of London, yet peaceful and serene with wide welcoming streets and cool white squares, Bloomsbury has been attracting people for centuries. It was in Bloomsbury that masterpieces were created by Charles Dickens, the suffragette movement was started by Emmeline Pankhurst and the theory of natural selection was first conceived by Charles Darwin. This area is still one of the most prestigious locations in the capital today and an integral part of London's historical identity.

a double ended enamel bath and another separate shower room both equipped with designer monobloc mixer taps, concealed perimeter strip LED lighting, electric matt heated wall with towel rail and large porcelain grey tiles to finish the walls.

The beautiful squares and gardens ensconced deep in the heart of Bloomsbury make it a serene space and easy to imagine the ladies and gentlemen in days gone by passing time amongst the parks. Today, the area is still bursting with life, a glorious place with current residents, some of the greatest financial, legal and literary minds, enjoying the same stunning architecture and serenity that also entranced their former counterparts.
