Bloomsbury Literary Walking tour and The British Museum

For our Bloomsbury walking tour and British Museum guided tour, join us first on a pretty walk through lovely squares and gardens where poets, writers and philanthropists lived, loved and worked. Hear their poems and quotations from their works.

Get to know the story of Coram’s Fields, where once an orphanage called Foundling Hospital stood. This is where Charles Dickens and JM Barry lived. Learn about their lives and what inspired their most famous works.

You will learn what the connection is between Peter Pan and Great Ormond Street Hospital and find out who were the members of the Bloomsbury group. See the Church where Sylvia Plath married Ted Hughes, and walk down the street where Edgar Allan Poe lived once.

After a coffee break we will take you on our British Museum guided tour,┬áLondon’s most visited museum founded by Hans Sloan.

We will see some of the most discussed objects such as the Rosetta Stone, which proved to be the key to deciphering hieroglyphics. You will see the famous Elgin Marbles and Hoa Hakananai. We will also visit the British Galleries.
