About the Area

John Street is one of Bloomsbury’s most prestigious addresses where Georgian houses were constructed for the lawyers of nearby Lincoln’s and Gray’s Inn.  It was named after John Blagrave, a carpenter employed by Henry Doughty and so in testament to this history John Street becomes Doughty Street at the tiny Lady Ottoline pub which is now a little gin powerhouse.  John Street is on the eastern fringe of Bloomsbury which owes its history and character to the Russell family who own the Bedford Estate.  The Russell Group of Universities nearby are some of the best in the world.

Coram’s Fields is nearby for family open spaces and there are excellent shopping facilities available in both the Brunswick Centre and the boutique shops and restaurants of Lambs Conduit St.
