Scandals, Rogues and Adultery in St James's Walking Tour

Scandal is something that intrigues everyone. Today the press feed the headlines with the news on events that have typically erupted from greed, lust or the abuse of power.
The same occurred a back in our history and in particular, the exclusive area known as St James's.
Don't be fooled by the aristocratic houses, palaces and clubs because what happened behind those closed doors created as much gossip and scandal as what we have today.
