About this book
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.
