Event Details

This walk explores the actors, musicians, artists and literary figures that made their home in the pubs and cafes of Fitzrovia.  Come and meet the people like the outrageous Nina Hamnett, known as the Queen of Bohemia, Dylan Thomas, and Augustus John who shaped the Bohemian nature of the area. On our walk will pass the beautiful Fitzrovia Chapel, get hunger pangs in Charlotte Street and see the workhouse that inspired Charles Dickens.  We will learn about the “unpickable lock challenge” that took over 16 days to solve and continue on by strolling around Fitzroy Square, where we will see the house where both Virginia Wolf and George Bernard Shaw lived but not at the same time!  Finally, we will learn the story of the Cleveland Street Scandal and finish our walk at Warren Street, after seeing one of the best murals in London.
