Synopsis

Walking Dickens' London The Time Traveller's Guide by Lee Jackson

Written by the acclaimed historical novelist Lee Jackson, this book recreates the sights and sounds of Dickens' London and provides a detailed itinerary for those keen to follow in the footsteps of 'The Inimitable Boz'. Each of the eight walks conjures up forgotten scenes of London life - stage-coaches racing through the Borough; herds of cattle driven through suburban streets to reach Smithfield market; the uproar of a hanging outside Newgate Gaol - together with directions to the most atmospheric and intriguing parts of the Victorian metropolis which have survived into the twenty-first century.
