Embrace Spring

London is picture perfect in spring, especially as the cherry blossoms and wisteria start to flourish. We recommend taking a walk around our creative neighbourhood of Bloomsbury, which is buzzing with local artists and boutique bookshops. After a long day of exploring, relax on the terrace at Woolf & Whistle bar which overlooks leafy Tavistock Square.

Charles Dickens once lived in the neighbourhood, there is even a nearby museum in his honour. All our properties are a stone's throw from the British Museum too, a must-see attraction in spring for all the family.
