Guided Evening Stroll around Bloomsbury

From the Pre-Raphaelites to Virginia Woolf and beyond, Bloomsbury has been associated with artists, writers and louche behaviour. Charles Dickens lived here,as did Dorothy L Sayers: George Orwell married and died within a week in the shadow of the building he immortalised as ‘The Ministry of Truth’. We have inherited a glorious neighbourhood of Georgian squares now more likely to be owned by UCL than the Duchy of Bedford, but essentially unchanged in up to 200 years. The Events Committee have arranged for Andy Rashleigh, a Blue Badge Guide and who previously led us on a wonderful evening walk around Clerkenwell, to lead a relaxing, diverting, informative mid-summer stroll around this most interesting part of London.

The walk will take up to 2 hours. Meet at the Southampton Row entrance to Holborn tube station at 6.30pm. The event will finish at Russell Square and adjourn to a suitable hostelry for supper.

The cost will be £10 per person. Places are limited, so please book with the Clerk and confirm whether or not you wish to take supper.
