BLOOMSBURY WALK
Tuesday 08 October 2019

Cost: £5   Maximum No: 15

We will meet at 10.30 at Russell Square tube station.

Bloomsbury is always associated with the writers and artists who lived and worked there in the early part of the 20th century and whose lives were so vividly portrayed in the BBC TV drama series "Life in Squares".

This walk explores some of the oldest and most notable of London's squares, from the time of Charles II to the reign of Queen Victoria.  Along the way we will meet some of the many characters who have lived in the squares over the years.  

Highlights include Coram Fields, where you must be accompanied by a child to enter, The Foundling Hospital, Charles Dickens’ favourite pub and the art deco masterpiece Senate House.

The walk ends at Russell Square tube station.
