Midtown has enjoyed a tremendous rejuvenation over the years, and Bloomsbury, an area where artists and intellectuals met for much of the 20th Century, stands to be one of the chief beneficiaries.
Already well-celebrated for its cultural history and home to the British Museum, Bloomsbury enjoys a welter of significant cultural and academic institutions, as well as a thriving business community. With Crossrail connections coming soon, this area’s attractiveness to business is only set to increase.
Bloomsbury has long been linked with the publishing industry, making it a superb choice for businesses linked to this field. It is also well-connected to important business districts and centres of finance such as Canary Wharf, providing outstanding networking opportunities. For all all-business district that is on the up and up, Bloomsbury is a superb choice.
