Start: Covent Garden Tube – Circular Walk – finish back at Covent Garden Tube
From its very inception in the 17th century, Covent Garden has had a fascinating history and it was once said that it has more literary interest than any other spot in modern or ancient London!
On our walk we will explore where our most famous writers including Dickens, Pepys, Kipling, Johnson and Boswell lived, drank, met fellow authors and about one particular book that you most certainly wouldn’t want your name associated with!
