Virginia Woolf at Home



Virginia Woolf, figurehead of the Bloomsbury Group and an innovative writer whose experimental style and lyrical prose ensured her position as one of the most influential of modern novelists, was also firmly anchored in the reality of the houses she lived in and those she visited regularly. Detailed and evocative accounts appear in her letters and diaries, as well as in her fiction, where they appear as backdrops or provide direct inspiration.

Hilary Macaskill examines the houses that meant the most to Woolf, including:

22 Hyde Park Gate, London – where Virginia Woolf was born in 1882

Talland House, St Ives, Cornwall – the summer home of Virginia’s family until 1895

46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London – the birthplace of the Bloomsbury Group – Virginia lived here from 1904 to 1912

Hogarth House, Richmond, London – where the newly married Woolfs set up home and founded the Hogarth Press

Asheham House, East Sussex – the summer home of the Woolfs, 1912-1919

52 Tavistock Square, London – a return to Bloomsbury, the heart of London

Monk’s House, Rodmell, East Sussex –  where Virginia lived from 1919 until her death in 1941
