With an intricate labyrinth of streets around the Cathedral, and other ancient hidden gems, the architecture in this center is diverse and eccentric. In this journey, you’ll discover the history of the Catalan culture from the Roman roots of the city and paramount medieval buildings. Join us for unique, local insight into the Gothic Quarter and discover why it is a must-see destination!
Women of Bloomsbury Walking Tour
March is Women’s History Month, and we’re making it international! In London, the district of Bloomsbury has historically been linked to culture, intellects, artists and writers.
