This walk starts outside Warren Street Underground Station. It explores the medical associations of the Fitzrovia area, including the first private hospital in London, a number of smaller hospitals that occupied grand houses in Fitzroy Square, the story of the birth of family planning, a major nurses home established by the famous Astor family, a Georgian workhouse known by Charles Dickens, and ending with a short tour inside the beautiful Fitzrovia Chapel, which was part of the famous Middlesex Hospital.
The walk is presented by Camden Tour Guides Association together with the Fitzrovia Chapel. Your guide will be Richard Cohen. He will be wearing a Camden Tour Guides Association badge. Please note that this tour will only run if we have 10 people signed up to it. If we need to cancel, we will tell those people who have already registered.
