What you'll do

As the day turns to dusk, discover a darker London riddled with crime, mystery and hauntings. The City of London has over two thousand years of history for you to unravel. From murder and organized crime, to hauntings and ghostly visions; walk through these deathly streets to uncover a London more harrowing than your nightmares. Learn about the ghosts that haunt these streets, including the spirit of one of Britain’s best loved authors, Charles Dickens, hear about the woman who haunts the Bank of England, and the two beautiful but murderous queens, who occasionally cross paths and can be seen fighting in the evening shadows. You’ll hear about rootless grave robberies, walk over ancient burial pits and learn about the city’s devastating witch trials and their subsequent public executions. Venture through London’s dark and criminal past, as you learn about the life and crimes of the infamous Jack the Ripper. Visit Smithfield’s market to hear the stories of Bloody Mary and the ghost of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, the ‘Grey Lady’. Our tour ends with a complimentary beer at a Victorian pub with a secret. Built on the site of an old prison, you can explore the cellars and see the smallest prison cells in London, haunted today by a poltergeist. Enjoy a thrilling evening stroll in the company of an expert guide, as you explore one of London’s most mysterious sites.
