I'm not a devotee of the Bloomsbury set of writers, artists, and intellectuals who lived around the square, though an interesting marker at the south entrance to the square explains the various personalities involved. I simply wandered into Gordon Square on a sunny Bank Holiday...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
