Winter walks around Euston Road

Monday 10th January 2022

Yes the weather is cold outside and the trees are bare, but there’s nothing better than a frosty, winter walk around Central London.

In this blog post, we’ll share our favourite walks to try out when you need to take a break from your studies and assignments whilst on campus.

Bloomsbury Institute campus is based in the heart of London, Zone 1, we’re lucky to have many amazing parks, green spaces and attractions just a short walk away from campus. 

Putting your coat on and walking around is one of life’s great joys – you’d be surprised at how many new things you see or experience while walking around London. Let’s get out there and enjoy some fresh air!

1. Regent’s Park

With its interesting landscaping, fountains, sculptures and art installations, Regent’s Park is always a lovely place to visit for a quick stroll between lectures. Why not sit by the water and observe the birdlife?

Regent’s Park is one of the Royal Parks of London and is located only 6 minutes away from our 373 Euston Road building. But bear in mind, the park is very big so if you go there for a walk between lectures, make sure you don’t lose track of time. Especially if you have another class coming up!

2. Primrose Hill

If you have more time to wander, head north of Regent’s Park to visit Primrose Hill. You can enjoy a long relaxing walk to the hill, and at the summit, experience spectacular views across London.

We’d say it’s one of the best places to enjoy the London Skyline. There are also plenty of shops along the walk where you’ll find chic and artisan offerings.

3. ZSL London Zoo

A visit to plan and book in advance is the world-famous Zoological Society of London (ZSL) London Zoo. It is the world’s oldest scientific zoo which houses a collection of 755 species of animals, making it one of the largest collections in the UK. You’ll get to see lions, tigers, giraffes, penguins, ring-tailed lemur – the list goes on and on!

4. Daunt Books

If you’re a book worm or just need something to read outside of your studies, you can find a huge selection of books at Daunt Books. Only 12 minutes walk from our Euston Road campus, the bookshop is a very calm, peaceful and lovely place to visit.

The high ceilinged interior is filled with books of all kinds and the staff are helpful and knowledgeable. It’s a bookshop where you go in for a look and come out with two or more books!
