From Sherlock Holmes’ Baker Street and Jack the Ripper’ s Whitechapel to the East End of the Krays and the white-collar crooks of the City, London has 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 there has never been a  guide to its darker points of interest – until now.

Traversing centuries of villainy, Criminal London explores the more scandalous moments of the city’ s story. Featured herein are three original walks and over 100 sights to see, 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.

Perfect for adventurous tourists and curious Londoners, this is a sightseeing guide for the intrepid.

Product Description:

From Newgate Prison to the West London flat where Lord Lucan murdered his nanny, this illustrated gazetteer lists the locations around the capital that have played host to notorious crimes such as the Christie and Crippen murders, arch villains such as the Richardsons or famous London crime-fighters. The book also includes comprehensive guided walks visiting sites associated with Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper and the Krays.

Review:

'Thicker and chewier than a truncheon sandwich...Too many new London guides trot out the same tired old suite of trivia, but the Hollingtons have really done their research, unearthing more nefarious nuggets than you'll find in a Norbury Fried Chicken.'
