Bury Place, Bloomsbury, WC1A

Properties to rent and for sale on Bury Place, Bloomsbury

Bury Place is a small one-way street directly opposite The British Museum in the centre of London’s Bloomsbury. The street is home to large residential blocks as well as shops, cafes and restaurants.

There are two large red brick mansion blocks that are situated on the street: Museum Chambers and Russell Chambers. Both blocks offer 36 flats, which are a mixture of investor-owned flats and residential occupiers. Russell Chambers is named after the famous philosopher and historian Bertrand Russell, 1872-1970, who lived in this particular block for a number of years. The building has a blue plaque on it to remember him.

The ‘London Review Bookshop’ is also situated on the road, which was built and established back in 2003 and is now home to more than 20,000 titles for all different categories. Book lovers come from afar to browse through the wide selection of books, and can also enjoy tea, coffee and cake when it is on offer. They go by the ethos “intelligent without being pompous; engaged without being partisan”. It is an excellent setting for those wanting to socialise and discuss the literature on while being in London’s cultural capital.

Restaurants along Bury Place include the small and elegant ‘Il Castelletto’, which is a small family-run Mediterranean restaurant serving up authentic and unique dishes. It is always busy with both locals and tourists and receives fantastic reviews. Away from the hustle and bustle of central London and opposite the British Museum is a beautiful courtyard called Pied Bull Yard. Pied Bull Yard is home to the famous ‘Le Cordon Bleu’ cookery school and ‘Truckles’, which is a restaurant and wine bar. Customers can enjoy drinks and food in the small courtyard seating area in the summer and in the cosy sofa seated area inside during the colder months. It also makes for a fantastic entertaining venue for parties and work events, as they have large banquette seating areas downstairs and a wide selection of wine from Davy’s cellar.

‘Bubbleology’ has just opened on the corner of Bury Place - a popular tea shop serving hot and cold tea with a variety of flavours. The origin of ‘Bubble Tea’ dates back to the 80s in Taiwan, and Liu Han-Chieh founded the use of Tapioca pearls which form the fruit flavour in the drink. The name is derived from the foam that is created at the top of the drink when the tea is shaken. The shop is becoming increasingly popular with the locals, and not just the tourists that are already aware of this type of tea.
