Charlotte Bronte loved it, Alexander Pope hated it. Known mainly as a place for money making and trade, the narrow alleyways of the City also gave birth to writers and poets. It either charmed or repelled its visitors and has featured in and inspired books and poetry over the centuries. The City is awash with literary landmarkds that will delight and surprise you. Join City Guide and lecturer Jill Finch for a fascinating talk on the City of London's literary influence, part of London History Day celebrations.
