Area Comments

Bloomsbury manages to combine art with commerce in a way that few areas of London can quite bring off. It's a centre for the culture vulture, and an occasional place to find beautiful apartments.

Sealed off from the bustle of the West End by the combination of Oxford Street, New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road and Euston Road, Bloomsbury is an area of museums (most notably the British Museum), universities, hospitals and other largescale concerns. It is quiet here, very calm, a place of leafy squares- Bedford Square, Bloomsbury Square and Russel Square chief amongst them - and wide streets and hotels, its character devolved from its mix of students, some spillover from the Soho media set, professionals and a very few longterm residents. Its properties are mostly Georgian terraces, although there are a smattering of Victorian properties around the place as well, and some converted office blocks also feature.

Talking of accommodation in Bloomsbury means - invariably - apartments. These are mainly converted from the Georgian terraces, although there are some which occasionally come up in other places - converted office spaces, sometimes from the flats found above local shops, and some converted council accommodation, as well as a few mansion blocks, some of which are owned by Camden Council.

Property in Bloomsbury is both rare and expensive. Those who live in the area, either on leases or freehold, do not give up their residences lightly. Apartments are mainly occupied by long-term residences, or are bought as pied a terre by wealthy professionals.

There are plenty of restaurants and a large number of cafes in the Bloomsbury area, which caters heavily to the fringes of the tourist trade, particularly those heading towards Holborn, and those attempting to find the British Museum. Nightlife is restricted, as most prefer to head into the West End. Overall, the character of the area is very quiet, a result of the large number of hotels, university, office and hospital buildings here.

Quiet, intellectual and calmly beautiful, Bloomsbury is sparsely populated, green and a wonderful place to walk - and a very select place to live.

Fitzrovia: Variety aplenty

Fitzrovia: Variety aplenty

In central London, few places feel more foreign than Fitzrovia. The district, as well as its close neighbour Bloomsbury, is the closest a London resident can get to living in a European city. Of course, you'll have to excuse the chronic lack of sunshine, but the combination of close cobbled streets and extravagant squares gives Fitzrovia a definite Barcelona-esque feel. Its location in central London - lodged between Bloomsbury and Marylebone - makes it ideal for those who prefer their conveniences … well, convenient. You can work, shop and eat within just a few streets of where you live. Perfect.
