London and literature go together like bangers and mash (or peanut butter and jam if you have a sweet tooth).
Uncover a world of literature and the arts as you follow your local London host, a bookworm like yourself through Bloomsbury, counting the blue plaques which chronicle London's literary past.
Heads up; there are a lot! Discover the spots immortalized in classic tales, following in the footsteps of your favorite characters and be transported back to a time when some of the most influential writers roamed these streets.
You’ll visit the hidden haunts of writers past and browse quirky bookshops that only a fellow literature lover would know.
See the very places that Shakespeare drank and dined with friends, and where the great minds such as Wilde and Woolf gained inspiration for their works.
Stop by Dickens’ old house, which is now a museum, browse magical bookshops like Persephone which lovingly republishes out of print novels by female authors or simply enjoy a pint (or that gin we mentioned earlier) in the pub where Shakespeare used to drink.
