Fitzrovia March - May 2019

An exploration of the only part of the West End not previously visited by the London Villages Group. The area boasts two centuries of association with artists, links to the Bloomsbury Group and the hub of 20th century Bohemian life led by Augustus John, Dylan Thomas and Nina Hamnett. 

It has its own newspaper, much needed to help withstand redevelopment. Fitzroy Square is one of London's finest and most intact Georgian squares built between 1794 and 1835 and the heart of the Fitzrovia Conservation Area. It  has also been a popular filming venue for BBC costume dramas.

In 2018, The Fitzroy Tavern was given a special award by CAMRA for a refurbishment which retained and revived the Tavern's orignal Victorian appearance. A great lunch stop!
