Bespoke Britain

Historic Bloomsbury Tour

Immerse yourself in a London neighbourhood that is rich in learning, literature, and legend. From stories of daring heists at the height of England’s Civil War, to the adventures of the extraordinary and eccentric Bloomsbury Group, your private expert tour curator will show you the hidden secrets and spectacular stories embedded in Bloomsbury’s leafy public squares and elegant Georgian townhouses. 

This perfectly prepared package pairs exceedingly well with our one-hour introductory privately guided interior tour of the British Museum – and we are delighted to offer you a 20% discount on that tour when booking this perfectly prepared package (option available when booking).
