Description
Culture & Lifestyle

This private walking tour takes you on an interesting 2.5 hour walk around the Bloomsbury district of London. What Montmartre in Paris is to the world of art then so is Bloomsbury to the world of literature. Bloomsbury was the centre of the English-speaking literary world in the 19th and 20th centuries and to a degree still is. The beautiful squares and quiet neighbourhoods created a special community where writers from around the world would come to live and write in a creative atmosphere. On this tour we will visit the homes of a number of world-renowned writers, see the largely unchanged neighbourhoods that they lived in and which helped form some of the greatest works of literature of all time. Just some of the places we will visit include the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, Charles Darwin and the Suffragette Millicent Garrett Fawcett. We’ll see the building that inspired George Orwell and his Ministry of Truth in 1984. Learn about the tragic life of Virginia Woolf, a prominent member of the Bloomsbury Group and the location of where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle invented the famous sleuth Sherlock Holmes and why he never liked his famous detective. Such luminaries as Gertrude Stein, Aleister Crowley, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde and WB Yeats round off the tour, not forgetting J M Barrie whose wonderful story of Peter Pan continues to help a world-famous children’s hospital in London to this day.
