A Walking Tour of Bloomsbury, London

Minimum group size 10, £15.00pp  Ref:2021V03

To book email Gillian Craig on Gillian.Craig@artandculturaltravel.com

Visits must be booked by 1st November 

The Bloomsbury Set was a circle of avant-garde artists and writers famous for living in squares and making love in triangles. They flaunted the conventions of society and believed art and culture are the only things that matter in life.

This walking tour will visit leafy Bloomsbury places and memorials of Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, E.M. Forster, Duncan Grant and others, such as T.S. Eliot and J.M. Keynes. We shall also observe prestigious colleges, a children’s hospital and Captain Coram’s Foundling Museum. (Who will spot artist Tracey Emin’s ‘Mitten’ artwork outside?)

This tour will be led by experienced Blue Badge London tourist guide Frank Julian Gelli. He is a writer passionately interested in literature, art and history.

Meet on TUESDAY 16 NOVEMBER, at 10.50am for an 11.00am start, immediately outside the entrance to Russell Square Tube Station, on the Piccadilly Line. The Tour will last no more than two hours and there will be a coffee stop with loos. The tour will end where it started, by the Russell Square Tube station.

Walking shoes, umbrellas, and please observe Covid regulations and precautions. Coffee is not included in the ticket price.
