Don Juan gets mugged pretty quickly in "law abiding London". Don Juan is received well by the London aristocracy but Byron takes time to satirize much of the pomp and frivolity of the rich in London. Byron, for example, loved to poke fun at the bluestockings or wealthy women who pretended to be interested in literature and history.
