The Bloomsbury area in northern London, England, has a long association with literature, culture, and medicine, which is reflected throughout the neighborhood. Bloomsbury is centered around Russell Square, named after the family that helped make the district into the upscale residential area that it is today. Several famous authors, artists, and intellectuals have lived here over the years, and there are many educational institutes and museums here too. A stay in one of the top Bloomsbury hotels means you'll have lots of cultural attractions on your doorstep, with the iconic sights of central London just a short trip away.
London Heathrow Airport is 21 miles west of Bloomsbury, and there are many options available to get there from the airport. You can hail a cab in front of any of the terminal buildings, or take London's extensive Underground railway network to Holborn or Russell Square stations. Additionally, all the major car rental companies have counters inside the terminals.
After checking into your choice of hotels in Bloomsbury, get out and visit some of the attractions in the area. The biggest draw is the British Museum, which holds a vast collection of artifacts from around the world and throughout history—it's very easy to spend a whole day there. Other museums in the area include the Charles Dickens Museum and the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology. You can rent a car in Bloomsbury to get around or use public transport. Walking is also an option, as most of London's other main attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, and the Tower of London, are within a 3-mile radius of Bloomsbury. When you need a rest, take a break for afternoon tea in one of the best hotels in London.
