• LOCATION 2 | 'Such Friends': Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group

    Follow the path to your right, to the eastern square entrance

    Keep following the path ahead of you that bends to the right.

    Much has changed in the area, but this garden looks much the same as it did back when the Bloomsberries lived nearby.

    Although now it is quite a posh area of London, in the early 20th century, Bloomsbury was considered to be really seedy, a cheap place for students and artists to live.

    Remember as we walk around, that in those days, people didn’t own the places they lived in. The land was owned by the aristocracy somewhere; the inhabitants just rented.

Preview mode limited to first 3 locations.
