A walk through the Bloomsbury exploring where novelist Dorothy L Sayers lived, worked and took inspiration for her detective fiction

Dorothy L Sayers, one of the “golden age” crime writers between the first and second world wars, lived and worked in Holborn and Bloomsbury  – as did her alter ego, Harriet Vane and other familiar characters from the novels and short stories.  

 See places from which she took inspiration for her detective fiction; find out more about Sayers’ characters and about the woman who brought them all to life.

 Meet Holborn Station and finish close to Russell Square.

“The walk was an excellent blend of information about the author’s life and highlights from her novels. It has inspired me to read more of her work”
