Product description

Review

Jam-packed with unusual insights and facts about Georgian London. A great read from a talented new historian (Independent)

Inglis writes colourfully and engagingly, and offers plenty of odd facts and amusing vignettes (Economist)

Full of neat character portraits and engaging plots (Financial Times)

Pacy, superbly researched. The real sparkle lies in its relentless cavalcade of insightful anecdotes . . . There's much to treasure here (Londonist)

Read and be amazed by a city you thought you knew (Jonathan Foyle, World Monuments Fund)

Fun, fast and factual . . . Lucy Inglis offers, without breaking stride, a delicious panorama of people, quiddities and oddities (Evening Standard)

Inglis has a good ear for the outlandish, the farcical, the bizarre and the macabre. A wonderful popular history of Hanoverian London (London Historians)

The Georgians had enough scandal and drama going on to fill a dozen tabloid papers. The rather-fit Lucy Inglis crams it all into this startling book which will have you pining for a taste of those debauched days (Sunday Sport)

From the Great Fire in 1666 and the covering of the old 'Ditch' where the Fleet river once ran, to the creation of Westminster Bridge, the British Museum and the National Gallery, Lucy Inglis gives us an entertaining romp through well-known parts of London (Who Do You Think You Are?)

Lucy Inglis leaves no stone unturned, no coffeehouse unvisited and no dark alley unexplored . . . a dazzling tapestry of 18th-century London life emerges. Lively, engaging, fascinating, humorous (BBC History)

[An] engaging and industrious survey of life in Georgian London (TLS)

Reading Lucy Inglis's brisk, astringent and highly amusing tour around various quarters of Hanoverian London on Boxing Day is the ideal antidote to the excesses of Christmas and will keep you snugly entertained in your armchair for hours (History Today, 'Books of the Year')

Anyone who is interested in history and our great capital city will be gripped by Georgian London. This book is full of enjoyable nuggets (Soane Magazine)

Inglis describes a city that was just beginning to become modern, with all its colourful high and low life (Journal of the Islington Archaeology & History Society)

About the Author

In 2009 Lucy Inglis is famous for her blog: GeorgianLondon.com. In it she blogs about anything under the Georgian sun - body snatchers, sex shops, coffee and gossip. She lives in London with her husband.
