Spring 2019 – Footsteps in Fitzrovia

April 15 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free

As the population of London increased steadily, so the attraction of living in a quieter part of the City became popular.  Fitzrovia was an escape from the smells and the slums, close to the shops of Oxford Street and within walking distance of the railway stations of Euston, King’s Cross and St. Pancras.  Once it was the chosen home of the German community and Charlotte Street was known as Charlottenstrasse but many of the elegant homes disappeared as the need for office space became greater. The Bohemian atmosphere lingered on with Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Dylan Thomas finding the place to their liking just as the painters John Constable and James Whistler had done before them.

The walk starts from Oxford Street Underground Station (W1B 3AG) Plus code: GV85+37 Soho, London

This walk will be charged at £7 per walker – please pay on the day.

Meet there at 11:00 am (More details to follow nearer the date)
