Things To Do - Bloomsbury

Bloomsbury has the highest concentration of grassy squares in the world with the likes of Tavistock Square and Russell Square within a few minutes walk. That is probably note true. But... throw in a few museums and some notable publishing sites and there is plenty for a fantastic day out or something to do in Bloomsbury this weekend. 

That's one of the reasons we created a treasure trail here. There is so much to see, it is a little quieter than the rest of Central London and it makes for an excellent walk.

So you are looking for things to do in Bloomsbury... here you go!

head to pollock's toy museum

After relaxing in Russell Square why not continue the museum tour with a trip to Pollock's Toy Museum on Scala Street near Goodge Street. It was an inspiration for the likes of David Bowie in his heyday and stills stands on the site it moved to in the 1960's. If quirky parts of London take your fancy then this is a place to visit.
