Join Antony Robbins, aka Mr Londoner, for a tour to uncover the secret history of Bankside – London’s play side.

Historians have described Bankside as the Las Vegas of medieval London. Its story is one of chaos, playful and lewd behaviour – and just a touch of excess. This is where buttoned-up Londoners came to let off steam. Explore the sites of some of the capital’s most infamous 18th century brothels and riotous inns and taverns.

En-route we’ll see street art, lost advertising from yesteryear and discover an array of local wildlife, from bears to the Winchester geese, only discovered in this part of London.
