Wordy Wednesday: Brian Leads the Literary London Pub Walk Tonight
A Literary London line to tide you over until you join me on my walk this evening at 7pm…
Brian's Favourite Bookshops No.2
Persephone Books in 59 Lambs Conduit Street
Specialises in interwar writers many of whom are out of print. They also promote female writers although not exclusively. The production of the books is excellent, often the end papers are prints from the year of original publication and many reflect the work of the Bloomsbury group.
Meet Brian at 7pm, Holborn Tube station. There's no need to book. A London Walk costs £10 (£8 concession)
Brian, a professionally qualified Blue Badge Guide, won the London Tourist Board's Guide of the Year Award in 1994. His career has embraced the law, surveying, catering, dispatch riding and art - and the stage may be beckoning. Now, anyone for a soundbite? And if you'd like a completely independent take on Brian's guiding, well, read this Marylebone Journal review of his Old Marylebone walk.
A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
