A walking tour of woolfs beloved hometown the london scene begins at the london docks and follows woolf as she visits several iconic sites throughout the city including the oxford street shopping strip john keatss house on hampstead heath thomas carlyles house in chelsea st pauls cathedral westminster abbey and the houses of parliament. It was subsequently included in reissues of the london scene references external links portrait of a londoner by virginia woolf . The london scene is a little book of six short essays about london written by virginia woolf in the 1930s though i enjoyed some of the descriptions of london that showcase its timelessness i found that woolfs stream of consciousness style went over my head at times. Originally published bi monthly in 1931 by good housekeeping the essays in the london scene exhibit virginia woolf at the height of her literary powers and present an unparalleled and meditative portrait of an extraordinary metropolis capturing the london of the 1930s and also the eternal city we recognise today. The london scene offers a playful glimpse of woolfs prodigious talents as a writer it should not be read as a substitute for her more serious work but as a diversion from it for a far richer portrait of london one must turn to her diaries and novels in which the city truly comes to life
