Synopsis

Bloomsbury is the vibrant, intellectual and cultural heart of London that proudly sits within the southern part of the London Borough of Camden. One can meander through dignified Georgian streets and beautiful garden squares which link us to an extraordinary circle of writers, artists and thinkers; marvel at the architecture of the universities, medical institutions and The British Museum; or explore its many renowned independent bookshops.





With the collaboration of experts, Edward Arnold introduces Bloomsbury's rich past and energetic present. Bite-sized sections reveal historical facts, stories of social reform and Bloomsbury's many contributions to the world. An all-in-one history and guide book which has a wealth of images that help to illustrate this pleasant and captivating square mile.

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended: Packed with fascinating information and very well written. I thoroughly enjoyed this practical guide/history book. It is packed with fascinating information that includes entertaining short histories on every place of interest. The structure of the book and content is straightforward yet very comprehensive. I did not realise how much Bloomsbury had to offer and thanks to this book, I extended our stay by another day. It is quite remarkable how the author has included such a wide range of topics into 190 pages that takes you beyond the average guidebook. The historical stories are as multifaceted as Bloomsbury itself and includes (to mention a few); spies, squatters, a ghost or two, a corpse on display in a university hallway, London’s first university, witchcraft, medical and social pioneers and of course the Bloomsbury Group and other revolutionary writers, artists and thinkers. The author’s passion for Bloomsbury reflects in his writing style and tone and I highly recommend this pleasant, informative and well-written book.
