    Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
    leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
    access to many of London's most popular attractions.
    It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
    museums, including the must-see British Museum.
    Despite an understandable popularity with students,
    tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
    retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

    Hallo Helen. Just take the 'Piccadilly' underground line (dark blue on tube maps) from your terminal in Heathrow up to King's Cross/St. Pancras. It takes about 50 minutes.
