Bloomsbury: Books About Town

Early last week, we did our fourth (and final) Books About Town trail in London. This one was around the Bloomsbury area, running from Long Acre up to Tavistock Place. I’ve really enjoyed doing these trails, especially as I got to see parts of London I hadn’t seen before. Photos of the other book bench trails: Greenwich, Riverside and The City. Many thanks for visiting!
