I’m guessing that many Virginia Woolf common readers and scholars will be traveling to London this year and next, since the 2016 and 2017 Annual International Conferences on Virginia Woolf will be held in England — this year in Leeds and next year in Reading.
No doubt they’ll be looking for Woolf’s London, including all of the places she lived and the streets Clarissa Dalloway walked.
So now is a good time to share a few fun resources that will help visitors eat, sleep and shop as Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group did.
- Consider dining at the Dalloway Terrace, inspired by the Bloomsbury Group. It opens this month.
- Visit Maison Bertaux, the U.K.’s oldest pastry and tea shop, which Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group frequented.
- For more suggestions on where to stay, dine and shop, read “At Lunch with the Ghosts of Bloomsbury,” in the Dec. 18, 2015, issue of Saveur. You’ll find information about staying at Hazlitt’s, the Hotel Russell and the Morton Hotel; shopping at Fortnum & Mason, Hatchards and Liberty London; eating and drinking at Gordon’s Wine Bar, Boulestin and The Lamb.
- Check out the Charlotte Street Hotel, decorated in a Bloomsbury Group theme. An overnight stay is a splurge but tea may fit your budget.
- For Bloomsbury decor, visit Bloomsbury Interiors at The Courtauld Gallery.
