Synopsis

Walking Dickens' London 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.

A well-known Victorianist, Lee Jackson is the author of Walking Dickens' London, Victorian London, editor of A Dictionary of Victorian London, and a number of historical crime novels; and creator of the preeminent website on Victorian London (www.victorianlondon.org). He lives in London.
