London has a long and fascinating history which has not always been pleasant; it has been peppered with murderers, shoplifters, smugglers, prostitutes, grave robbers and highwaymen.

Learn about the darker side of the history of this great city through the buildings and sites on London streets which remain standing to tell the story.

Do you want to know where Ronnie Kray shot George Cornell? Do you want to pay your respects to the victims of Jack the Ripper? Do you want to know what went on behind the doors of the most discreet hotel in London? You will find these locations to visit, and many more within these pages.

This guide will take you on a journey visiting 299 sites covering the history of more than 60 crimes (or crime sprees) which took place over nearly 1,000 years of London’s criminal past. Visit where heists were planned, murders were carried out, bodies were dumped and criminals were punished.

You can follow the pre-set tours which includes a murder site tour, pub crawl and a cemetery tour or you can create a bespoke tour depending on where you happen to be in this great city. But rest assured, you will start to wonder what went on behind every closed door you see.
