Bloomsbury is most famous for its literary connections and has an oddly quiet feel for central London, unless you're right outside the gates of the British Museum, that is. There's a distinct cultural air, with students from UCL, SOAS and RADA wandering its streets. Several garden squares are good for a stroll, although you'll need a child in tow to enter Coram's Fields. Bloomsbury's smaller museums are quirky and well worth a visit, and there are lots of interesting specialist book shops, naturally. You can explore the whole village in a day or stay and find the answer to your philosophical questions at The School Of Life.
