Event description
Walk in the Bloomsbury footsteps of Charlotte Mew, Dorothy Richardson and Virginia Woolf and discover how walking influenced their writing

About this event

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Charlotte Mew, Dorothy Richardson and Virginia Woolf all drew inspiration from walking alone in London; observing and enjoying street life. Woolf called it "street haunting". The sights and sounds of London run through their novels, stories, essays and poetry. On this two hour walk through the streets and squares of Bloomsbury we see where they lived and walked and how walks influenced their writing.
