Introduction to Bloomsbury, Beyond Bloomsbury Group Walk

Bloomsbury, is resonant in most people’s minds with that artistic and progressive group of early 20th people who lived in squares and loved in triangles, known as the Bloomsbury Group. This group included such luminaries as: Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Lytton Strachey and John Maynard Keynes. But Bloomsbury is so much more than the Bloomsbury Group.

In this virtual walk entitled, Bloomsbury, Beyond the Bloomsbury Group, you will be introduced to ten people, all of whom have achieved Blue Plaque status and only two of them, Lady Ottoline Morrell and T S Eliot had contact with that rather exclusive and snobbish circle which made the area famous.

An unusual feature is that this walk looks at two dentists! – Lilian Lindsay and James Robinson. You will also learn more about two very important scientists, Charles Darwin and Edward Jenner, both of whom still influence research and development in the 21st century.

If we were doing this walk on the streets, rather than closeted in our homes we would start at Russell Square tube station and proceed to Russell Square. After meandering round the square we would head to Gower Street and end in the best preserved Georgian Square – Bedford Square. 

Your two guides, Elaine Wein and Jenny Rossiter, look forward to seeing on Thursday 17th December at 8 pm for a virtual walk through Bloomsbury.
