London on £1 a Day

Follow a Back Catalogue guidebook around Olde London Town. Explore forgotten avenues and alleyways. Visit quaint Victorian taverns and rub shoulders with authentic Cockney rogues over a taster pot of traditional craft ale.

Half close your eyes and you could almost be back in Soho’s heyday – there is Twiggy with the Kray twins and young Sir Cliff! – or even in Docklands with its legendary docks and fog.

But beware of locals who may misunderstand your nostalgic tactics and ask if they can help because they think you are crying.
