Fitzrovia Walk with Old Maps

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 13th Oct 2012

Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

Walk with old maps exploring the neighbourhood that as late as 1746 was open fields. Subsequently a magnet for writers, artists and political refugees, we find traces of the way basements were used by craftsmen. Along the way we see where George BernardShaw wrote three plays and Virginia Woolf wrote her first novel. A highlight is the house where the Dickens family first lodged in London and where Charles later lived in whilst an aspiring reporter. As well as finding many characters in the area he also found the Workhouse that inspired Oliver Twist. It is still ther and partially listed.

Cost: Free of Charge
