Herb Lester

Filthy London

£3.99

Because no one wants to mistake a bawdy house and a Georgian flogging machine.

All human desire is laid bare in Filthy London, our eye-opening new pocket-size guide, as we take a tour through centuries of scandal and vice.

Lust courses through London’s ancient streets – from leafy suburbs to the throbbing heart of the city – and Herb Lester sniffs it out.

+ Written by Lucy Morgan, designed by Alex Westgate.
+ A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm).
+ Litho-printed in England on recycled paper.

There are medieval bawdy houses and Georgian flogging machines, toe-sucking, striptease, nude saunas and dogging, with cameos from a cast that includes King George IV, King of Soho Paul Raymond, John Profumo and Aleister Crowley, the Wickedest Man In The World.

London is filled with dirty secrets, 40 of which we’re delighted to spill in this new guide.
