There are several settings in Woolf's short story. It begins in Oliver Bacon's home "overlooking the Green Park." He then walks along Piccadilly, on his way to his shop on Bond Street. All of these are in London. Those are the physical settings.

However, Bacon also slips off into memory and fantasy, and those might be considered settings.
