Literary London by Diane Burstein

Diane will give us an illustrated “armchair tour” of Literary London from Fleet Street to Bloomsbury and Soho tracing sites associated with Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dr Johnson, Orwell, Eliot, Woolf and many others, “visiting” the places where famous authors lived, worked and loved.

Diane Burstein has 20 years experience of working as a registered London Blue Badge Tour Guide. She loves to show both visitors and Londoners the lesser known sights away from the tourist trail. In addition to leading her tours she makes regular radio broadcasts on BBC London on the subject of “Secret London” and is a tutor on London themed courses for two leading adult education Institutes – City Lit and Bishopsgate Institute.
