The Bloomsbury Group Literary Tour
See the Woolf family home in Kensington (now a hotel) before heading to the Bloomsbury area where Virginia, her sister and brothers moved to after the death of their parents. Continue to Richmond and Hogarth House where Virginia and her husband moved after another of Virginia's breakdowns, and where they established the publishing house which was to become world famous. If time permits, visit the world renowned Kew Gardens, a favourite place for Virginia and setting of one of her novels, or Highgate Cemetery where Virginia's sister, Stella and mother are buried. The length of this tour is flexible - we recommend 7 hrs but we can make the day shorter if necessary.
The itinerary is flexible and you can choose a selection of the sights that interest you the most. Choose between Sissinghurst, the world famous gardens created by Vita Sackville-West and Sir Harold Nicholson around the castle or Knole, a magnificent house set in an extensive deer park owned by Lord Sackville. Other options are Charleston, discovered by Virginia and Leonard Woolf when Virginia's sister was looking for a place in the country or Monk's House where Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard lived in 1919.
