Apartments for Rent

The Bedford Estates offers exceptional residential properties within the Bloomsbury area. We take considerable care maintaining the original architecture and features that make our properties so sought after, whilst offering elegant decor with modern fixtures and fittings. 

Our portfolio of flats to rent include a range of apartments in elegant period conversions and traditional mansion blocks.

Many of our flats have garden views and access to private gardens may be available by separate arrangement. We have a small number of superb duplex apartments with their own private gardens.

Garden Squares

Take a stroll through Bloomsbury and you’ll never be far from a glorious Georgian garden square. There are ten garden squares in all, each nestled among the elegant period properties that line Bloomsbury's leafy streets. Some, like Russell Square, are open to the public, while others, such as Bedford Square, are private spaces.

The Bedford Estates are proud to be custodians of some of these historic green spaces. Our dedicated team of gardeners tend these havens of nature, conserving their heritage and ensuring they give pleasure to visitors throughout the year.
