About this event

On this walking tour, we take a look at the world of the 18thC sex and brothel trade, finding out how a certain little book governed the fortunes of the women who worked in the oldest profession.

We walk the streets where some of the most infamous brothels were located, and find out how this area became an area that at turns scandalised and thrilled society. Meet some of the most renowned harlots in London, and hear what made them stand out.

All tours are Covid compliant, and a full risk assessment has been undertaken. For more information on the Covid-19 steps that have been taken, please visit my website www.alexlacey.com

Organizer Alex Lacey, Blue Badge Tourist Guide

Organizer of Harlots & Bawds - the Georgian Sex Trade in London

Alex Lacey is an award winning Blue Badge Tourist Guide. The Blue Badge is the highest guiding qualification awarded in the UK, and is only given after 2 years rigorous training and examinations.

My tours are fun and full of humour, fascinating facts and alternative looks at London's history and culture, and I love showing you bits of London you may not have noticed before. Here are just some of my reviews from my 5* rated TripAdvisor review page.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Oh my! Can we bottle this tour guide?! I took a tour of an area I’ve visited regularly for the last decade. When I return, everything will feel new & undiscovered again because Alex really opened my eyes to what was around me. Her knowledge brings the surroundings alive and her passion leaves you energised & hopeful for the future of culture in this country - even during a pandemic! A brilliant person you want with you everywhere. I hope I get to do more tours with her"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I went on the Slavery and the City walking tour in London with a few friends - it was fascinating and Alex is a brilliant guide. I learned a huge amount about the history of the city and how the legacy of slavery is found even today in so many British institutions. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and engaging, and I'll definitely be back for more tours in future!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "I have had Alex Lacey as a guide twice. On both occasions she went above and beyond all expectations. She is not only extremely knowledgable but inspiring, positive and inspiring. She made my students learn without even realizing it! They loved her. I will definitely be using Alex on my next trip!"
