Bohemians and Bluestockings

A central London literary walk

The Bloomsbury Set were described as people who ‘lived in squares and loved in triangles’. We strolled through the Georgian squares of Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia to see the places where the famous writers lived, worked and loved. Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, George Bernard Shaw, T S Eliot, W B Yeats and Charles Dickens are just some of the writers we met on this walk. Our Blue Badge guide tailored this walk for our group & so also focused on many of the influential women who lived & worked in the area; including Vanessa Bell, Marie Stopes, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Lizzie Siddall, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, Louisa Brandreth Aldrich Blake, Dorothy Richardson, Noor Inayat Khan, Angelica Kaufman, Mary Ward.
