Great tour. Matt is enthusiastic, very personable and knowledgable. Great to see a number of sights from perspectives and also get around with ease (avoiding large crowds). Highly recommended.

museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
