Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
An entertaining, revealing and beautifully illustrated walking guide to London's horrific history, Bloody London features walks that take in everything from Jack the Ripper's haunts, to the 'Route of the Damned' from Newgate Prison to Tyburn, to Gangland London, to the plague outbreak hotspots and burial pits, to the key points of the Great Fire of London, plus many many more iconic and delightfully gruesome moments in London's history.<br> Each walk is clearly illustrated with a map and gorgeous illustrations, and importantly the book is pocket-sized so you can easily take it around with you as you go. David Fathers is the king of London walking guides, and Bloody London will delight both those who live in London and those visiting who are looking for a walking guide that's a little bit different.
