Time Out says

What better time of year to investigate London’s intriguing history of the oldest trade on earth, prostitution, than Valentine’s season? On this guided walking tour you’ll be transported back to 300 years into a London of Georgian sex workers. Explore Covent Garden and learn about business-savvy brothel madames, women who ended up making a name for themselves and stories of the women that weren’t often given a voice. By the end, you’ll be acquainted with eighteenth-century London’s sordid, saucy, and often brutal sex industry. Finish off the tour at a tavern that takes its name from one of the most notorious courtesans of all time: The Nell Gwynne.
