An entertaining, revealing and beautifully illustrated walking guide to London's horrific history, Bloody London features walks that take in everything from Jack the Ripper's haunts, to the site of John Christie's house of horrors, to the plague outbreak hotspots and burial pits, to the key places involved in the Great Fire of London, plus many many more iconic and delightfully gruesome moments in London's history.
Each walk is beautifully illustrated with a map and gorgeous illustrations, and the book is perfectly pocket-sized so you can easily take it around with you as you go. David Fathers is the king of London walking guides, and Bloody London will delight both those who live in London and those visiting who are looking for a walking guide that's a little bit different.

David Fathers has managed to cram two thousand years of bloody London history into his book complete with beautifully clear maps and illustrations. His twenty walks each provide even the most jaded Londoner with a unique perspective on their city and will, I suspect, be a delight for any visitor. -- Ben Aaronovitch * The Foreword *
