Starting at Warren Street station Richard Cohen, long term Camden resident and local tour guide will lead you around the immediate environs of University College Hospital. We will pass the gracious calm of Fitzroy Square, one of London’s most beautiful city squares, to contrast the sites of some older medical facilities there with state of the art modern provision at UCH, including the Proton Beam Therapy Centre and the pathbreaking Macmillan Cancer Centre. We will hear stories of some of the great figures who have lived and worked in the area including Bernard Shaw, Virginia Woolf and Marie Stopes. This walk is part of a series celebrating the return of open air street guiding organised by Camden Tour Guides throughout the week of June 21 – 25.
