Georgian London

Lucy Inglis: Welcome to Georgian London. My particular interests are the immigrant population and the artisan communities of London during the 18th century, as well as day to day trivia and the more bizarre aspects of London life three centuries ago. The blog covers the period between 1660 and 1836, but Georgian London keeps things nice and simple.

London Tavern Trails

In the footsteps of Dickens Every THURSDAY evening From Traddles' chambers in Gray's Inn, to Fagin's den of thieves on Saffron Hill, this Tavern Trail takes you into the heart of Dickens' country. Not only did Dickens write extensively about this historic area of London, he lived here as well. This trail takes in four historic pubs in the heart of Dickens' Victorian London. Every Thursday evening. Meet at 7pm, just outside the entrance to Holborn Underground Station (Central & Piccadilly lines), on the pavement on the left-hand-side as you exit the station.
