What you'll do

Join a Local host who is a fellow literature lover to discover a culturally rich neighbourhood which is synonymous with London’s literary history.

Immerse yourself in London’s literary culture through exploring famous sites, unique independent bookstores and spectacular libraries. 

Stroll through a neighbourhood famed for its literary roots, visit a museum in the home of an icon author, stop by a historic pub frequented by the Bloomsbury Set or visit the places that have inspired world famous books. 

Spend time getting to know your Local host who can give you advice and other recommendations for literature lovers in London, or simply discuss your favourite books together over a coffee!


What to expect

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary based on your literary loves, and to agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Although you will visit well known literary attractions, your Local host will also help you to discover unique bookstores, literary spots and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook, and make the city unique.
