London – Bloomsbury 8

Virginia Woolf is not the only writer honoured in Tavistock Square in Bloomsbury. There is also a statue of Mahatma Gandhi in the centre of the park.

In 1909, when Gandhi travelled by ship from London to Cape Town, during the 15 day journey, he wrote “Hind Swaraj” – his first book and the book that formulated a plan for Indian independence.
