"Walking Literary London" is a walking guide through the lives, loves, homes and haunts of great writers, past and present. Ideal for visitors, residents, book-lovers and historians alike, "Walking Literary London" covers 25 carefully researched walks encompassing a vast range of ground from central areas such as Covent Garden, Westminster and the City to the leafier suburbs of Richmond and Hampstead. Birthplaces, past and present homes and burial places of eminent writers are visited, as are the places that inspired much great literature. Surprising facts are revealed and the darker side of London's literary past is also uncovered, including Oscar Wilde's incarceration in Wandsworth Prison, Samuel Taylor Coleridge's opium addiction and Sylvia Plath's suicide. Each walk has an accompanying map highlighting the route and pinpointing key places of interest. Cafes, bars and restaurants are recommended, and information on public transport and visitor opening times is provided. "Walking Literary London" is an illuminating companion to London's rich literary heritage.
