Hidden Museums of Bloomsbury

London 1 day 3 stops 4.0 hours All Season 1666


Historically, Bloomsbury has been the intellectual centre of London, home to the world-famous British Museum, opened in 1759, and later the so-called Bloomsbury Set, a group of intellectuals, writers, philosophers and artists who lived and worked in Bloomsbury in the first half of the 20th century. It should come as no surprise, then, that this area is packed with fascinating museums. This route will take you to three of the lesser-known museums in this bustling part of London, which tell the story of the city over several centuries. Being much smaller than the epic British Museum, the Foundling Museum, Charles Dickens Museum and Sir John Soane’s Museum can all be visited in one day, and together will give you an exciting glimpse into London’s rich history.

       "filled with the Dickens family’s real possessions, the museum is a Victorian home frozen in time"
