Dickens' London

(2012)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Dickens' London is a unique work that recreates the sights, sounds and smells of Dickens' London and provides a detailed itinerary for those keen to follow in the footsteps of '-The Inimitable Boz'. Each entry conjures up forgotten scenes of London life - stage-coaches racing through the Borough; landing a catch at Billingsgate market; the uproar of a hanging outside Newgate Gaol - together with pointers to the most atmospheric, astonishing and esoteric parts of the Victorian metropolis which have survived into the twenty-first century. Step back into the past: savour the opportunity to dine in a nineteenth century chop-house; explore the rookery of Seven Dials; take tea in one of the Inns of Court; visit a Victorian operating theatre - all this and much more. Drawing upon Dickens' life and work, from museums and monuments to hidden alleys, mews and courtyards; from railway stations and riverside taverns to grim slums and gaslight - Dickens' London : A Timetraveller's Guide is an indispensable guide for anyone exploring Victorian London.

Dickens' London : A Timetraveller's Guide is written by the acclaimed historical novelist Lee Jackson, whose encyclopaedic website 'The Dictionary of Victorian London' (www.victorianlondon.org) is well-known to all those interested in the history of the capital.
