‘Round the clock’

This walk focuses on the history around the LSHTM ‘block’ and its surrounding streets and squares.  Before the School and Senate House were built Keppel Street stretched to Russell Square and famous inhabitants included the novelists Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope.  It is an area packed with medical history too, from the 23 names on the LSHTM building to the many physicians and scientists who lived nearby.  Join us for a fascinating tour of Bloomsbury history.

(Starts from LSHTM, Keppel Street Building)

This walk will be led by Dr Ros Stanwell-Smith, a Public Health Consultant who is also a London Blue Badge Guide

Each Walk is free. Numbers are limited (20 places). If you would like to participate, please book with Ingrid James: Tel: 020 7927 – 2434 or email
