On the evening of 13 June, following the conference's activities for the day, relax on a leisurely walk through the surrounding Bloomsbury area with entertaining and knowledgeble tour guides.

Historically, Bloomsbury is associated with the arts, education, and medicine. The area gives its name to the Bloomsbury Group of artists, the most famous of whom was Virginia Woolf, who met in private homes in the area in the early 1900s. The poet T.S.Eliot worked for the publisher Faber & Faber in Tavistock Square in 1925. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in John Millais's parents' house on Gower Street in 1848. Charles Dickens lived in Doughty Street in 1837. Bloomsbury is the home of the British Museum and the British Library, and colleges of the University of London.
