Character London Walks
....every step's an adventure

Literary London Walk...What to expect?

Most famous for Virginia Woolf & the Bloomsbury Group, but what about some of the other literary giants who have scribbled away here?

We’ll see where Oscar Wilde spent his last night before leaving England for good and the publishing house where T.S Eliot lived and worked.

We’ll take in the imposing Senate House where, during World War 2, George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh swapped fiction for boosting the nation's morale by writing for the Ministry of Information; Senate House was also the HQ for some of the survivors in John Wyndham’s "Day of the Triffids".

‘Please Sir, I want some more’ …no problem..our walk ends at the Dickens Museum where Charles Dickens penned Oliver Twist and we’ll leave you here to explore the museum at our specially negotiated discounted rates.
