布卢姆斯伯里和霍尔本徒步之旅

布卢姆斯伯里覆盖了从霍尔本到尤斯顿路的区域,这次徒步旅行将游览附近的所有著名景点。

开始您的布卢姆斯伯里和霍尔本之旅

这次旅行的起点是霍尔本地铁站,距离新月酒店不到一英里,步行大约需要 20 分钟。 这次徒步旅行需要 2-3 小时才能完成。

霍尔本地铁站和红狮广场

这次旅行从霍尔本地铁站开始,您必须在那里过马路并前往红狮街的交界处。 老红狮酒吧的历史可追溯至 1899 年,位于拐角处。 该地点以前被另一家酒吧 Red Lyon Inn 占据,该酒吧成立于 16 世纪。

有传言说,奥利弗·克伦威尔的尸体在前往绞刑架的途中被存放在红色里昂旅馆过夜。 据称,克伦威尔和另外 2 人的尸体随后被扔进了酒吧附近的一个坑里,有许多故事表明这些人至今仍在该地区出没。

当您前往红狮街时,游览继续进行,直到您到达普林斯顿街。 在你的左边是红狮广场,那里是在那里工作的律师和负责开发该网站的工人之间著名的战斗的场所。 工人们取得了胜利,继续发展。

红狮广场和大奥蒙德街

坐落在红狮广场东北角的是康威大厅,您必须通过它才能导航回红狮街。 从这里,您可以轻松前往 Lamb's Conduit Street,在那里您可以看到用于将饮用水从 River Fleet 输送到伦敦的管道泵的残骸。

沿着 Lamb's Conduit Street 继续前行,您将到达顶部的 Rugby Street。 橄榄球街以沃里克郡杂货商劳伦斯警长的故乡命名,拥有许多独立的商店,当游览带您前往大奥蒙德街时,这些商店是令人愉快的消遣。

大奥蒙德街和罗素广场地铁站

Great Ormond Street, arguably most well known because of the children’s hospital that takes its name, is the next stop on this tour.

虽然大奥蒙德街儿童医院是这里最著名的医疗机构,但其他尖端机构也加入其中。 伦敦皇家综合医学医院和国家神经内科和神经外科医院距离皇后广场仅一箭之遥。

Created in 1716 and named after Queen Anne, Queen’s Square actually contains a statue of Queen Charlotte, who was a frequent visitor to the area when her husband, King George III, was being treated. The nearby “Queen’s Larder” pub is also named after Charlotte.

罗素广场地铁站和弃婴博物馆

离开皇后广场后,游览通过吉尔福德街前往罗素广场,在那里您会在拐角处找到 Pret-A-Manger。

Russell Square was supposedly named after Francis Russell, the 5th Duke of Bedford, though it may have taken the family name even earlier. Francis was the driving force behind much of the local development, commissioning the master developer James Burton to transform the area into a residential hub. With Burton responsible for many developments in Bloomsbury and Holborn, you will notice distinct similarities as you explore the various districts.

From here, we will turn right onto Bernard Street before taking the 2nd left onto Marchmont Street. On the right is the Brunswick Centre, a grade II listed building which boasts residential, retail and leisure facilities. Further up Marchmont Street, you can admire the plaques of famous people and see which houses they lived in.

Just a 2 minute walk from the Brunswick Centre (via Hunter Street) is the Foundling Museum, located adjacent to Brunswick Square Gardens and Coram’s Field. The Foundling Museum opened in 2004 and pays tribute to the Foundling Hospital, which was the first home in the United Kingdom to take care of children who had been orphaned or abandoned.

塔维斯托克广场花园和戈登广场花园

From the Foundling Museum, you must head back towards Hunter Street, then turn left onto Tavistock Place, continuing until you reach Tavistock Square Gardens. This was also developed by James Burton, with many of the properties being completed years later by Thomas Cubitt. If you turn right out of the gardens onto Tavistock Square, you will pass the memorial for the victims of the 2005 London Bombings. Opposite the memorial, you will see statues of Mahatma Gandhi and Virginia Woolf.

From here, head north towards the British Medical Association’s BMA House, which has been their headquarters for almost 100 years. The position where BMA House now stands was once the home of Charles Dickens.

Leave Tavistock Place via Endsleigh Place and head towards Gordon Square. Developed by Thomas Cubitt, many members of the Bloomsbury Group lived here, most notably Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell.

戈登广场花园和尤斯顿路

These are the final few sights of the walking tour as you make your way towards Euston Road.

If you exit Gordon Square from the south, you will see Euston Church on your right. This Grade I listed church was built in the mid-19th century by master architect John Raphael Brandon and welcomes visitors for their midweek small groups (these usually take place on an evening, so if you wish to join in, you will need to time your walk accordingly).

Continuing onto Byng Place, the nearby UCL campus boasts many wonderful buildings, one of which is the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology. Named after former UCL professor Flinders Petrie, this wonderful UCL museum offers free entry to the public and houses one of the world’s finest collections of Egyptian and Sudanese archaeology.

If you head back towards Byng Place, turn right and then right again, you will find yourself on Gower Street. As you continue up Gower Street, you will find the Grant Museum of Zoology on your left, and further up on the right hand side is the main entrance to UCL. A further 100m up the road will bring you to the junction of Gower Street and Euston Road, where you will find Euston Square Tube Station on the corner.
