A walking tour through the highways and byways of 18th century London.

About

Facing starvation in 18th century London, thousands of unmarried mothers and widows were forced into prostitution, some giving up their children to the Foundling Hospital. City of London Guide Ian Bevan leads a walking tour rediscovering the original sites of Georgian brothels and bath houses, and sharing contemporary accounts of women caught up in London's sexual underworld.
