The Bloomsbury Literature Tour (London) is a private walking tour. It takes you on an interesting 2.5 hour walk around the beautiful Bloomsbury district of London. Bloomsbury is to literature what Montmartre in Paris is to art and Hollywood is to movies
Bloomsbury has been the centre of the English-speaking literary world since the 19th and 20th centuries. The beautiful squares and quiet neighbourhoods create a special community. Writers from across the world came 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. Visit the places that inspired 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. See 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.
