Bloomsbury House, 2-3 Bloomsbury Square, London WC1A 2RL

Bloomsbury House is a listed building built originally to house the College of Preceptors. The impressive Grade I building was listed in 1976 and was sympathetically restored in 2007. The interior was transformed into one of London's best-kept secrets. The rather grand building was erected in 1887, designed in a sort of Flemish Renaissance style by one F. Pinches. You are assured of a quality event at this venue.
