« Thank you for organising this fabulous walk and suggesting this visit to me for the Club! All the participants seemed very enthusiastic. Muriel as usual is so good that she makes us forget the cold weather! A very interesting area, with a great diversity of architecture. Amazing to find such lovely corners in the centre of London and yet one gets the impression to be far away from London. »
Geneviève S., Secret Fitzrovia, 19 janvier 2022.
« On a sunny’s January morning, it was pure joy to discover Fitzrovia, a London hidden gem. Muriel, one of LearnArtory’s blue badge guides, led our group with enthusiasm, a big smile and amazing knowledge through the local streets. History, Architecture, Litterature and Art were present around every corner. Fitzroy Square with its features designed by Robert Adams was a wonderful discovery.
Thank you LearnArtory for this treat! »Anne McK., Secret Fitzrovia, 19 janvier 2022.
« C’était absolument fantastique ! Même si nous avions déjà parcouru certains des lieux, cela faisait plaisir de les revoir et de réécouter la présentation de Muriel. De plus avec son talent et son charme habituel, on ne se lasse pas de l’écouter ! J’ai été également très agréablement surprise par la diversité des endroits sélectionnés pour cette balade culturelle. Félicitations! Well done! »
