The Bloomsbury Hotel

The Bloomsbury Hotel is situated on Great Russell Street in the heart of 18th century Bloomsbury, where the vibrant West End meets the burgeoning East - where Theatre Land meets the City. Designed in the 1930's by renowned British Architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, The Bloomsbury Hotel has undergone a sensitive restoration, resulting in the chic heritage hotel we see today. The Grade 2 listed building retains many of its original architectural features, including the magnificent stone entrance steps and doorway, double height lobby and the book-lined Seamus Heaney Library, named after the late Nobel Laureate, who was a regular guest. Steeped in history, the leafy streets and Georgian squares of Bloomsbury are home to a myriad of publishing houses, galleries and antiquarian book shops, along with an eclectic selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants. And with renowned Covent Garden just a short walk away, the Bloomsbury is the perfect base from which to explore the City of London.

Dining

Landseer Restaurant: Oak panelling, stone pillars, handsome tables with leather chairs and banquettes, give the Landseer Restaurant and Bar a member’s clubby air that feels both retro and very modern. The honest ingredients and lightness of touch evident in every dish created by Head Chef, Paul O’Brien lends a contemporary twist to the space – and has created a reputation for the Landseer as a destination in its own right. The bar is a wood-panelled gem, with a fine cocktail list and some rare and expertly chosen wines, beers and spirits. Afternoon Tea: Right in the heart of Bloomsbury, The Bloomsbury Hotel London is located in a magnificent neo-Georgian Grade II listed building, which was once the Queen's preferred place to drink tea and use the swimming pool. The Lutyens Lobby Lounge offers a chic yet relaxed setting, perfect for enjoying a truly British affair. The hotel was originally built for the Young Women's Christian Association with the foundation stone laid in 1929 and officially opened by Queen Mary. A Royal home for tea to the then Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret!
