"Dive into a forgotten London where debauchery was once king, where villains, drunkards, and sin ruled the streets. This shocking and exciting trip back in time will transport you to the site of London's Great Beer Flood (yes, really), to where Covent Garden's pimp master general did his business, to London's most haunted theatre, and much more. Along the way you'll learn about the city's grimiest characters - and how they were punished and executed! This is a gripping tour, but not one for the kids..."
