The St Athans Hotel is in Bloomsbury, slap bang in the middle of London. So we are blessed with everything you could want from a modern city – but where is it all? There are lots of little streets and wide avenues to get lost in, so here is a list of amenities in the local area we think you might need. If you have a suggestion of something that’s not included please leave a comment below and I’ll add it with the next update.

Marchmont St.

1min walk from the St Athans, (turn right out of the hotel) it’s our local community shopping street, and has nearly everything you could want.
