This Greet will include a visit to the fascinating Bloomsbury area. It was developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries and became a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its garden squares, literary connections, and numerous cultural, educational and health care institutions. The walk will cover Russell and Brunswick Squares, including the British Museum, the University area, Gordon and Tavistock Square, and the Brunswick Centre.
