London  and pleasure have always gone hand in hand. We will explore the famous Vauxhall and Ranelagh pleasure gardens, enjoying too Astleys Amphitheatre (the world's first modem circus), calling in on Wiltons music hall and the London Coliseum​ before ending up in the Odeons and Astorias. We will wander around the gardens accompanied by Hogarth, Canaletto and Rowlandson and see Walter Sickert at the Music Hall.
