Our recent events and coverage
Private view of the Great Hall at St Bart’s Hospital Museum
In May 2017, around 25 London history bloggers met at St Bart’s Hospital to celebrate their museum’s 20th birthday, enjoy a private tour of Hogarth’s staircase and the Great Hall by twilight, and have some birthday cake!
Our bloggers Instagrammed and tweeted about the evening — here’s a couple of their posts:
How lucky was I last night! I had a private audience with a staircase…painted by William Hogarth. We were invited to the St Bart’s Hospital Museum for a private view of Hogarth’s splendid staircase and the Great Hall. The museum is celebrating its 20th birthday, whilst St Bart’s is nearly 900 years old and Britain’s oldest hospital. Thanks to Charlotte @apeaceoflondon for organising the evening. It was great to hook up with fellow London bloggers @livinglon @londoncitycalling and @londonguidedwalks #hogarth #staircase #art #stbartholomew #bartsmuseum20 #smithfield #lookuplondon #mural # #thisislondon #visitbritain #londonhistory #anglophile #mydarlinglondon #lovelondon #locallondon #seemycity #outwithlocals #thisislondon #visitlondon #ilovelondon #mylondon #londontown #londonbylondoners #londonblogger
Last night I was invited to the beautiful St Bartholomew’s Hospital in Smithfield for the 20th birthday of the hospital museum 🎂🎈It’s such an interesting place to visit, and we were even lucky enough to be taken to see the Grand Hall which isn’t usually open to the public. The Hall is almost 300 years old and was originally built to house the management function of the hospital 🏥 The walls are lined with plaques baring the names of Governors of the hospital. The hall is now only used for special events 🥂 Thanks for organising @apeaceoflondon 😊 It was lovely getting to hang out with some of my favourite London bloggers @livinglon @diaryofalondoness @londonguidedwalks

Living London wandering of Lambeth and Vauxhall
Our held our first blogger event on a sunny spring day in early 2017 — fellow blogger Living London showed about 10 bloggers round her favourite hidden gems just south of the Thames. It was such a fun and inspiring day — I blogged about it here and there was, of course, lots of Instagramming going on…

Benefits for London heritage sites, museums and guides
Hosting our bloggers is a great way to…
- Get free promotion on social media, with access to new targeted audiences.
- Meet new contacts and network to arrange further collaborations.
- Spread the word about your events, exhibitions and upcoming projects.
Events could be based around a guided tour, viewing or an event you’re hosting already. You don’t have to show us a private section of your site or have anything exclusive to offer (although it definitely helps!) All we ask is for something special and unique that London history/culture enthusiasts would like.
