Walking in the streets of Bloomsbury, we visit places associated with Jeremy Bentham, David Ricardo, Vladimir Lenin, John Maynard Keynes, Virginia Woolf, George Orwell and other profound thinkers. We will explore how these thinkers shaped the history of the 19th and the 20th century and will discuss the relevance of their ideas to today’s world. No knowledge of economics is needed for the tour; you just have to be interested in politics, economics or intellectual history.

The tour is free and will take about 90 minutes.
