The past is a foreign country: this is your guidebook.

If you could travel back in time, the period from 1660 to 1700 would make one of the most exciting destinations in history. It is the age of Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London; bawdy comedy and the libertine court of Charles II ― the civil wars are over and a magnificent new era has begun.

But what would it really be like to live in Restoration Britain? Where would you stay and what would you eat? How much should you pay for one of those elaborate wigs? Should you trust a physician who advises you to drink fresh cow’s urine to cure your gout? Why are boys made to smoke in school? And why are you unlikely to get a fair trial in court?

The third volume in the series of Ian Mortimer’s bestselling Time Traveller’s Guides answers these crucial questions and encourages us to reflect on the customs and practices of daily life. This unique guide not only teaches us about the seventeenth century but makes us look with fresh eyes at the modern world.

"Ian Mortimer is a historical truffle hound... The Time Traveller’s Guide to Restoration Britain is just such fun to read... Mortimer writes with real freshness and enthusiasm,... His book is a delightful read." (Andrew Holgate Sunday Times)

"This entertaining tourist guide brings the late 17th century alive...The latest Time Traveller’s Guide will entertain and inform anyone with an interest in this extraordinary period" (Andrew Taylor The Times)

"Thoroughly entertaining... It is crammed with insights, facts and enjoyable anecdotes, which create a sense of the experience of living in Britain between 1660 and 1700... This is a compelling book and one of considerable erudition... This is the book that will provide the most richly colourful account of Britain in this period" (William Gibson History Today)
