Right in the heart of London, The Bloomsbury is located in a magnificent neo-Georgian Grade II listed building, which was once the Queen's preferred place to drink tea and use the swimming pool. It's prestigious façade compliments a beautifully renovated interior within minutes of exploring the myriad of treasures of Bloomsbury, whether it's the British Museum which is literally around the corner, the shopping haven of Oxford Street, the bustle of Covent Garden or the magnificent local Georgian terraces and gorgeous tree-lined squares.
The hotel was originally built for the Young Women's Christian
Association with the foundation stone laid in 1929 and officially
opened by Queen Mary. A Royal home for tea to the then Princesses
Elizabeth and Margaret, in the same era The Duchess of Kent opened
the YWCA Club Swimming Pool, yet to be restored.
The quality of the welcome at this venue rich in heritage is high as you'll be greeted by a team with exceptional people skills and who turn warm, personal service into something of an art form. Tea is supplied by the Rare Tea Company and The Bloomsbury's selection is hand-picked by Rare Tea's dedicated founder and owner, Henrietta Lovell.
Afternoon Tea is served 12pm to 5pm Monday to Sunday
