What’s with Bloomsbury? How come so many of the country’s most brilliant women have lived or worked here? Explore the answers on this walk. It’s Bloomsbury where a woman captures the first photographic evidence of DNA. It’s Bloomsbury where the first autobiographical account of enslavement by a woman is published. It’s Bloomsbury where a woman dies just after her 62-year-long campaign succeeds – when women finally have the vote on equal terms with men. And yes, it’s Bloomsbury where Virginia Woolf is ensconced in her study producing some of the greatest novels of the 20th century. It’s a rich history layered with the energy, determination and creativity of so many women. By the end you may just feel their inspiration still in Bloomsbury’s squares and streets.

And as long as we’re at it, what is it about Charlie? How is it that he produces masterpiece after masterpiece? Yes, his walks are that good; they deserve that appellation.* Bloomsbury’s Brilliant Women is his brand-new masterpiece.

*Don’t just take it from me. Look at his reviews.
