Our Neighbourhood

Goodenough College is based in the heart of Bloomsbury, one of London's prime academic and cultural locations. It is one of the greenest parts of London with plenty of parks and open squares. The area is associated with Charles Darwin (1809-1882), Charles Dickens (1812-1870), John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) E M Forster (1879-1970) and Virginia Woolf (1892-1941). Woolf once lived on Mecklenburgh Square and Graham Greene stayed on the Square when writing 'The Power and The Glory.'

We are within 10 minutes' walk from King's Cross Station and the Eurostar links at St Pancras which connects the UK to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel. Our closest tube station is Russell Square which is on the Piccadilly Line and links directly to Heathrow Airport.

We are also very close to major London Universities and colleges, such as Senate House (University of London), Birkbeck, the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), London School of Economics (LSE) and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. In fact one of the things our Members like best about living at Goodenough is how close it is to their place of study.

The Brunswick Centre with a range of shops and restaurants is less than a five minute walk away. It boasts an Art House Cinema, 10 different restaurants, a large supermarket and a variety of interesting shops. The surrounding streets are full of cafes, bars and bookshops. Lamb's Conduit Street and Marchmont Street are among the most characterful in London. Oxford Street and Covent Garden are also just a 15 minute walk away, and are filled with a variety of shops and restaurants.

We are within walking distance of The British Museum, Sir John Soames Museum and the British Library with their world-class collections. The Dickens Museum and the historic Foundling Hospital at Coram Fields are just a few hundred metres away.

You will certainly never get bored living in our corner of London!
