Bloomsbury is an area in the very heart of London, historically famous for its association with the arts; the Bloomsbury Group, the [lesser known] Bloomsbury Gang and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood all made it their base at one time or another, and the British Museum sits at its centre, formerly housing the British Library Reading Room.

Religion and academia have their champions & bastions in Bloomsbury too, with Nicholas Hawksmoor’s St George’s Church to the south, and the  The Bloomsbury Colleges (Birkbeck,  SOAS, et al) and UCL to name but a few of the venues for academic excellence that pepper this area of London.

Bloomsbury is also extremely well-placed in London for public transport, with the famous main stations of Kings Cross, St Pancras and Euston all within relatively easy walking distance or by tube/bus. Russell Square tube station, on the Piccadilly Line, is just a couple of minutes away from the Holiday Inn by foot, and Tottenham Court Road tube station, at one end of the world-renowned Oxford Street shopping area. For more information please visit the Transport for London website.

Should you wish to drive, the congestion charge is now payable 7 days a week however there is free meter parking on many roads around the venue, you may have to pay the ULEZ charge, do check on the Transport for London website with your vehicle registration.
