I have been collecting books on London’s darker past with a view to exploring some of the back streets of London and looking at celebrated historic murder cases. A few months ago I was asked to give a talk on this very subject and this became just the prompt I needed to finally get this together.
Those dark streets hold secrets
This 2 hour tour will take you through some of the most infamous streets in London examining historic examples of murders most foul. We pay our respects to a fallen police officer, discuss a neighbour dispute and ponder the mysterious death of a nazi diplomat. Working through a theme of body disposal, arguments over money and position and of course we look at one of the most enduring mysteries of the last, last century.
Stout footwear, a strong resolve and an enquiring mind will take you on a short journey along a few of what, statistically, could be considered as London’s most dangerous streets.
