There’s Gordon Square, where we find the homes of Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, and Virginia Woolf. Russell Square is where T.S. Eliot once worked, at Faber & Faber and nearby is the former home of Mary Shelley, the creator of Frankenstein!

And why we do it!
Our aim is always to be an ‘upgrade’ to anything else available, but without going ‘over the top’ with our prices. We started our business by offering simple day tours and deliver them well. It was not long before our clients were asking us to include more services and events – this we took as a compliment and felt it showed they trusted us and had confidence that we would deliver to a high standard, without the fuss.
