Event Details

The planners of Bloomsbury developed a new concept for urban living, the idea of ‘Rus in Urbe’ or ‘Countryside in the Town’, enabling city dwellers to enjoy greenery and rural peace. Starting at the Royal National Hotel, this walk explores several of the most famous open spaces of Bloomsbury and Holborn – Russell, Queen, Red Lion and Bloomsbury squares as well Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

See the beautiful buildings and important institutions from the worlds of medicine and the Law that line them. Wander through the traditional neighbourhood High Street of Bloomsbury at Lamb’s Conduit Street with its high-end, elegant boutiques and marvel at the early Georgian townhouses of Great Ormond Street and hear the story of the struggle for paediatric medicine at the world famous Children’s Hospital.

A guided walk with Richard Cohen of Camden Tour Guides Association.
