« Discovering Clapham with Marguerite from LearnArtory was fascinating and a most enjoyable experience. There is a lot to see in this most desirable part of London to live in. The worksheet provided at the beginning of the tour was extremely helpful as there is so much history, art and architecture in this South London District. »

« 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, 19th January 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! »
