4. Anthony Trollope
This famous writer was born in a flat at 6 Keppel St., Bloomsbury, London. He is regarded as the most successful English novelist of the Victorian era. Trollope attended New College, Oxford but failed to acquire his bar due to his moody temperament.
He later joined an Austrian cavalry regiment. He taught himself French and German. Later he moved to Ireland where he began to write some of his early novels. After an unsuccessful bid in politics, he primarily focused on his literary works.
His first major success came in the form of a book called The Warden.
Bloomsbury is a part of the famous West End which helps form part of the London Borough of Camden.
This was a very sleek and fashionable area in the 17th and 18th centuries. This city is home to many of London’s most important buildings such as the University College of London and British Medical Association.
This is a very happening area still to date with real estate ranging from expensive to ultra-high priced.
