Fizzing Around Fitzrovia

  • Monday 2 October 2017
    (11am - 1pm)
  • Lecturer: Andrew Davies

Once called London’s Latin Quarter, Fitzrovia has become a capital ‘hotspot’, boasting both a fine square designed by Robert Adam and the workhouse which inspired Dickens’s Oliver Twist. Plus an old Welsh dairy, the pubs frequented by Dylan Thomas and Augustus John, the chapel (now a restaurant) which is all that remains of the old Middlesex Hospital, the delicious Pollock’s Toy Museum and shop, Heal’s, John Constable, Virginia Woolf …. Fitzrovia has it all!


Meet outside Warren Street Underground Station at 10.50am


Andrew Davies is an author, broadcaster, The Arts Society and National Trust lecturer. Andrew is the author of nine books including The East End Nobody Knows (unfortunately now out of print). He also runs his own walks and talks company called All About London.
