This free to attend guided walk is part of Camden's annual arts programme Camden Vox.

In Victorian Britain, a women's place was considered to be in the home and children were treated as "expendable". On this walk through some of Bloomsbury's Squares, we hear about the first hospital specifically for children; a hospital founded thanks to the efforts of two sisters seeking care for their grandmother who had suffered a stroke and meet some the women pioneers of medicine and science.

The walk starts at Russell Square Station and will end in Torrington Square, a short distance from Russell Square Underground station. It will take between 1.5 and 2 hrs.
