Overview

The birthplace of Christian socialism and site of the British Museum, University College, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, the Friends House, and Great Ormond Street Hospital, Bloomsbury is crammed with history and contemporary decision making. This entertaining and informative book is accompanied by oblique images that present Bloomsbury as it’s never been portrayed before: intimate, contemporary, exploratory, and, occasionally, downright strange.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Murray's] amiably informative and well-illustrated book is the ideal companion to any tour."  —Independent

“Seren’s Real series makes its first foray outside the borders of Wales to explore the squares, hotels, pubs, avenues, back streets and inhabitants, former and current, of Bloomsbury, a district with ‘more fame per square meter than anywhere else in London.’”  —London Review of Books
