Ian Bevan, a historian and a City of London guide will take tourists on a special guided walk, which will be taking place on Sunday August 24th - and walkers are advised to book at the Foundling Museum in advance in order to secure their place on the walk.
Eighteenth century Bloomsbury was one of the top London attractions widely held to be a fashionable residential district.
Situated close to the estate of the Duke of Bedford, walkers can visit the Georgian squares and public buildings.
