Property in Bloomsbury & Holborn

COST PER SQ FT £450 - £950

Bloomsbury and Holborn has become one of central London’s most characterful places to live. This is not least due to new planning regulations allowing the conversion of office buildings to residential units, but the area’s great locality and transport links. Located between London’s two hubs of economic activity and entertainment - the financial district of the City of London and the West End, Bloomsbury and Holborn provide a great investment for homebuyers and investors.

Offering some of the city’s most charming squares and streets, the area has developed a cosmopolitan feel in recent years, especially closer to Russell Square and the late night café’s and shopping of the Brunswick Centre.

Bloomsbury is also home to some of Britain’s most prestigious educational institutions including University College London (UCL), SOAS and several museums including the British Museum.
