This book is one of the most enjoyable and entertaining travel guides I have read for a while. The author’s love of Bloomsbury shines through. This is an informative travel guide and history of London’s intellectual quarter. Edward Arnold shares short and interesting stories about the many liberal-minded pioneers, writers and politicians who helped shape modern London and indeed the world. This is not a heavy read; it is very straight forward giving one a good insight into one of London’s most original and unspoilt areas. The book is full of useful maps and images and is arranged in a logical manner. I would highly recommend this book even if you do not visit London, simply because it explains the impact Bloomsbury has had on the world.
