This is certainly one of our prettiest, leafiest walks through several fine squares and gardens, plus Coram Fields, a fine Bath-like Georgian terrace and where the Foundlings Hospital stood. We see where Dickens lived, wrote and contributed philanthropically to his local area; and where JM Barrie did likewise. We also see one of their greatest philanthropic achievements – Great Ormond Street Hospital including a wonderful statue of Peter Pan. And Bloomsbury is also crammed with evidence of its other rich literary past from a cast list which includes The Shelleys, Virginia Woolf and the rest of the Bloomsbury Group, Dorothy L. Sayers, Sylvia Plath & Ted Hughes and WB Yeats.
