If you haven’t stepped out on one already, why not try a literary stroll around London this month? Every year (usually in October) Footprints of London hosts a Literary Festival.
Highlights include a literary history of Covent Garden- a walk following Mrs Dalloway as she goes to buy flowers for her party, a walk around literary Hampstead, a day following The Enemy – Charlie Higson’s terrifying London based zombie story, retracing Daniel Defoe’s Journal of the Plague Year, readings of T. S. Eliot in the places his poems were set, and a preview of a new photographic exhibition based on Geoff Nicholson’s Bleeding London.
Lucky enough to be based in Fitzrovia, A&B are often reminded of the walks that great authors and their characters enjoyed – we can’t wait to learn more!

One thought on “Book Walks”
Thanks for the mention for the Literary Footprints Festival, the next one will be in October 2015 but we have lots of Literary Themed walks before then – take a look at http://goo.gl/C8E5tf
