Magical Bloomsbury Walk
Book with confidence:
In Bloomsbury, there are a remarkable number of magical things from goblins to wizards, from fortune telling to the site of a coven. This walk will take us through some of the lovely squares of Bloomsbury to hear of some strange happenings and stories.
Starting with a building that is not secret but does not announce itself (perhaps the magic is in trying to find it!) we will go on to explore some of the more unusual stories that are hiding in plain sight in Bloomsbury.
Many of the modern residents are students, so we will see what remains of a man who has been looking out for the students of Bloomsbury for nearly 200 years.
Your guide will point out some modern works of art in the area, that reference old legends and traditions. From the imagination of some great female writers, we will also find out about some creatures that may or may not exist. We will hear about a legend from before the British Museum was built to a more recent one that required an exorcism.
From the site of a coven to an architect with a devilish reputation, Bloomsbury will reveal all!
