Criminal London: A Sightseer's Guide to the Capital of Crime

by Kris Hollington

From Sherlock Holmes's Baker Street and Jack the Ripper's Whitechapel to the East End of the Krays and The Sweeney's Hammersmith, London's streets have played silent witness to countless crimes both real and imagined. Moreover, in print and on screen the city has exported its criminal heritage to the world, becoming a global capital of wrongdoing rivalled only by New York and Los Angeles. Yet, until now, there has been no single guide to its darker points of interest. Traversing the city's factual and fictional past, Criminal London features five original walks and over a hundred locations, including: the scenes of infamous murders, watering holes frequented by notorious felons, the homes of great consulting detectives, and locations from London's rich history of law and order, such as the Clink, Tyburn Tree and Bow Street Police Station. Aimed at adventurous tourists who enjoy exploring the surprising nooks and crannies of their city, this is a sightseeing guide for the intrepid.
