Bloomsbury Walk

As I am not doing a weekend walk in either August or September, I am putting on this in the last week of August.  This will be a wander around Bloomsbury and some of its garden squares, and finishing at Holborn.

Note that this is meeting from 6.00, setting off promptly at 6.30pm.

Around 2-2.5 miles, finish at 8 pm or so at a suitable pub not too far from the underground station.

    I had to pick up some reference material at Hammersmith and to my horror this comprised of two 900 pages hardback books weighing a at least six-seven kilos!
    This was too heavy to cart around, I couldn't leave the books so when I got to Leicester Sq I gave up and took the next train home.

    Hi, sad to on be sending apologies: I've developed some kind of bug so will be off to bed. Hopefully, catch you again.

  • Alison

    To reiterate - I will be around to meet from 6.00pm (18:00) and we leave promptly at 6.30pm (18:30). That gives everyone a 30 minute window to be on time!

    Directions for first section. Come out of Goodge Street station, turn right, cross the road at the first pedestrian crossing and go down Chenies Street, turn right and go down Alfred Place. At the end of Alfred Place turn left down Store Street, walk down that road, cross Gower Street, walk up Keppel Street. Cross over Malet Street and go straight ahead and walk through the Senate House gates, then out on to Russell Square. Turn left and walk up Thornhaugh Street, and walk up and through Woburn Square. If you've not caught up with us by then you probably won't do! We will be carrying on from Woburn Square, not stopping to wait for anyone.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone this evening. If you need my number it is 07794017227. Please note, however, that we leave promptly at 6.30 and I shall not answer the phone, respond to texts, respond to comments on this page after that time no matter what - my attention must be on the people I am leading on the walk. Directions for the first 10 mins or so to follow.

    I would love to join an evening walk but working until 5pm and then having to travel up to the other side of London and be there by 6pm I would find it difficult. I will though join the weekend walks in the autumn. Everyone enjoy!

    July 28, 2014

  • Mimi

    Am saying yes as I am always keen but things keep cropping up and I have yet to join a walk! Fingers crossed on this one since I work in the area!
