Time traveling holiday

In about 24 hours, my fortnight sojourn begins to Great Britain, and I will be using guidebooks printed during the Victorian era. It shall be an enjoyable time. The Victorian Era was a simpler time... gender roles were traditional, the class system was in full force, the Industrial revolution was underway, the sun never set on the British Empire, Vibrators were commonplace in the doctor's office, most people were hooked on Opium...and the sanitation...well...the sanitation people had to get their shit together...
One of my friends suggested I visit Whitechapel... I replied that in 1862, a lady of my social standing has no reason to slum in that den of iniquity... but that I will be in that area regardless...

Also, I went ahead and looked at suggested restaurants in Bristol... of the 4 listed, only one seems to remain... The Rummer, and it serves actual Spanish Amontillado. I shall be showing them my guidebook and that they are in it. Will totally make their day.

The conversation I will be having the most on my trip will start with: "Hi. My guidebook was written during the Victorian era and this place came highly recommended! Glad you're still around!"
