Blue Plaques

Blue plaques celebrate great figures of the past and the buildings that they inhabited   The Blue Plaques scheme has been run by English Heritage since 1986 and there are over 760 in London.

The Bloomsbury area has been the home of many famous and historically significant people in the past.  The map below provides a selection of blue plaques that you can see when walking around the area. Please note that the blue plaques shown here are all within Bloomsbury but not all of them are on properties owned by The Bedford Estates.
