N.B. this walk will not take place on the following dates:
Hidden in plain sight off the beaten track Bloomsbury awaits us.
What larks, what plunges. Tree-lined Georgian squares…
And streets built not long after The Great Fire of London…
And expect the unexpected at every turn. Cromwell’s ‘ghost’…
Nelson’s funeral Director, Longitude, King George III and Peter Pan.
Water conduits that once ran with wine, centuries-old Georgian canopied houses, the birthplace of the Arts & Crafts movement and the most famous children’s hospital in the world.
Here was aristocratic detective Lord Peter Wimsey…
Here were Charles Dickens’ child chimney sweeps, here was where poets 18th century Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath married and George Orwell introduced us to Big Brother.
And this was Virginia Woolf’s neighbourhood too…
Close to The British Museum, founded with Chelsea resident Hans Sloane’s collection.
‘London specialises in hiding the best of itself.’
Nowhere more so than in Bloomsbury. As for après walk, perhaps drop in on the British Museum or have a drink at a traditional old pub, many with outside seating.
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE GUIDING
Don’t just take it from us…
LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, Bohemian Bloomsbury it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Bohemian Bloomsbury walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.
GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS
A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
