Poets and Writers of Bloomsbury Walk
This Poets and Writers of Bloomsbury Walk with Graham Fawcett begins at the Café inside Russell Square, Bloomsbury, and then sets out through the quiet squares and by-ways of Bloomsbury and Holborn, taking in the less discovered as well as the famous places where the great poets and writers of London’s past have lived and worked and entertained one another. Spanning the centuries from street to street, we will pass front doors once familiar to Robert Browning, Charles Dickens, John Donne, T S Eliot, R W Emerson, Thomas Gray, HD, D H Lawrence, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, Ezra Pound, Virginia Woolf, William Wordsworth, Wilfred Owen and W B Yeats, and hear the often untold stories of their lives there.
