What to expect

Discover a world of literature and the arts as you follow your local London host, a bookworm like yourself through Bloomsbury, counting the blue plaques which chronicle London's literary past. Head’s up; there are a lot!

Discover the spots immortalized in classic tales, following in the footsteps of your favorite characters and be transported back to a time when some of the most influential writers roamed these streets. You’ll visit the hidden haunts of writers past and browse quirky bookshops that only fellow literature lovers will have heard of such as Persephone Books where they lovingly republish out of print works by female writers, in beautifully designed sleeves.

See the very places that Shakespeare drank and dined with friends, and where the great minds such as Wilde and Woolf gained inspiration for their works and drank gin together!

Stop by Dickens’ old house, which is now a museum, browse magical bookshops like Persephone which lovingly republishes out of print novels by female authors or simply enjoy a pint (or that gin we mentioned earlier) in the pub where Shakespeare used to drink.
