Bloomsbury’s recorded history dates back as far as the Doomsday Book (1086), which mentions that the area had vineyards and “wood for 100 pigs”, but the name actual name of Bloomsbury didn’t appear until 1201 when the area was acquired by a Norman land owner called William de Blemond.
The area is now known for containing some of London’s finest period buildings and formal garden squares. The British Museum and Great Ormond Street Hospital are two well know local institutions and the area is home to many of the different facilities of University College London.
Did you know that if you take a wander along the eastern side of Gower Street you’re strolling above millions of mosquitoes? This is because the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine breeds many different species of mosquito in an old coal bunker right beneath the road. Some of the strains have been here for decades. Find out more by clicking on http://londonist.com/2015/01/inside-londons-itchiest-room
