Overview

Ever heard adults talking about the good old days, when the streets of London were safe? Well, for most of its history, London's streets have probably been among the most dangerous in the world. In the 'good old days' you could hardly go out of your 30-bedroomed house without a highwayman demanding your money or your life. So discover forsooth: Which king liked to dress up as a bandit; The highwayman who swapped his horse for some ice-skates; The handsome thief who became every lady's choice of robber; A pipe-smoking lady called Moll. Take yourself back to the days when Hyde Park was humming with highwaymen and when a chap on a horse with a mask could earn a dishonest living robbing from the rich.
