Bram Stoker (1847 – 1912) leaves one helluva bloody smear on the landscape of English fiction – his 1897 epistolary novel Dracula

His personal mark, like those of many an Irish man of letters, is left all over London. His name is carved into the stone of the Lyceum Theatre in the West End, where he worked for Sir Henry Irving for 27 years. He worked also at the Prince of Wales Theatre and on Fleet Street, on the staff at the Daily Telegraph. He died in St George’s Square, Pimlico, SW1 and his ashes are at Golders Green Crematorium – where his urn can be viewed by special appointment only. His Blue Plaque is plain for all to see, on the house where he lived in SW3.

He was born in Clontarf on the north side of Dublin.


A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
