In the late Victorian era, Stoker walked to work for nearly 20 years along the Thames from Chelsea to the Lyceum Theatre on the Strand. At home, his wife, the society beauty Florence Balcombe (who had turned down Oscar Wilde, perhaps wisely), held salons and captivated artists and writers. At work, after long days managing Henry Irving and Ellen Terry, Bram dined with the rich and famous at the Beefsteak Club. We know much about this social world, but little about his inner life. 

This talk will explore Stoker's time in London and the capital's appearance in his fiction, most famously in Dracula and The Jewel of Seven Stars.
