Fancy a good time love...?

Of course you do! 

Hogarth, Harlots, Moll Flanders... you've seen the paintings, watched the TV shows and read the books... now visit the places that London's REAL strumpets called home. 

Allow your guide, 'The Baroness' to transport you back to the London of three hundred years ago and into the steamy underworld of the Georgian sex worker. Meet the women that 'made it', and those that ended up in the gutter; the high class courtesans and the gin-addled street walkers; the business-savvy Brothel Madams and the corrupted country girls. Hear the stories of the women that weren't often given a voice - in a trade that existed to serve men. What was it really like for them, and have we learned the lessons of the past?

Eighteenth Century London's sordid and often brutal sex industry is dramatically brought to life in this immersive, theatrical experience**. 

And when your thirst for lewd women, saucy stories and harrowing histories has been well and truly quenched, what better way to finish the experience than in a tavern that takes it's name from one of the most notorious courtesans of all time? 

Tour starts at Covent Garden tube station and ends at a local pub. Run time: approximately 1.5-2 hours*. Small groups to keep the experience intimate!  ;-) Fancy dress welcomed! 

**CONTENT TRIGGER WARNING* Includes themes of rape, sexual exploitation and abuse that may be triggering**
