Event description

Description

Fitzrovia has long been London's medical powerhouse.   It is the site of University College Hospital and we will see many of the world-class medical treatment and research centres based here.      It also boasts one of the most beautiful squares in London.  We will also visit one of London's earliest Family Planning clinics.  We will discover the site of the wild and riotous Gooseberry Fair of Tottenham Court Road.  We will hear about the artists, writers and lowlifes who inhabited the Fitzroy Tavern and see the Telecom Tower from a new angle.  We will visit London's oldest Workhouse Buildings where the poor and infirm had sanctuary in Georgian and Victorian times and visit the site of a notorious gay scandal in Victorian London.  We will see the homes of some of our greatest writers.
