Free Ghosts, Ghouls and Ghastly Murders Tour*
Ready to be scared?
When night falls in the city and mist settles in the streets, London becomes a very different place.
Londoners of old rise from their slumber and the spirits of the past return to haunt the living, but its not just the dead that you need to fear. For every patriotic hero, there must be villain and London has certainly had its fair share of those.
Join us as we explore the darker side of this city, encountering the serial killers, gangsters and monsters, both malevolent and murderous who have risen from the shadows to find infamy on these streets.
Or if you fancy something even more sinister, then why not check out our Jack the Ripper Tour?
Tour Highlights include:
The Thames Torso Murders
The London Monster
Haunted Underground Stations
Charles I's Execution
Charles II's Revenge
Amelia Dyer - London's most diabolical killer
The Ghost of St James Palace
Tales of scorned lovers, theatre loving phantoms, villainous Dukes and much more...
Meeting Point - Cleopatra's Needle
We begin next to Cleopatra's Needle, just around the corner from Embankment underground station. The station is on the northern, bakerloo, circle and district line, and around a 10 minute walk from Waterloo Station and Temple Station.
We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the tour starts, it gives you plenty of time to meet the guide and grab a coffee or ice cream!
How do I find the Guide?
Head to Cleopatra's Needle, around the corner from Embankment Station, and look for the guide holding up a bright red umbrella.
Where does the tour start and end?
The tour starts next to Cleopatra's Needle, just around the corner from Embankment underground station, and the guide should be next to the Needle.
Do I need to make a booking? Or cancel if my plans change?
Yes please. The number of bookings we receive dictates how many guides we send to run the tour. If we have 100 extra people turn up, its not going to be a good experience for anyone. Please be aware, we do not accept groups of 8 people or more. Even if you book separately, if you attend the tour as a big group, you will be turned away. If you are a group of 8 or more please contact us to enquire about booking a private tour.
What if its raining?
If its raining, we will get wet! We always recommend you carry an umbrella in London, the weather really is that temperamental, but if we didn't run tours in bad weather, we wouldn't get to do many. Rain or shine we will be there waiting. Of course, if you don’t fancy standing in the rain with us we understand.
What should I wear?
Our tours are all walking, so we always recommend comfy shoes. Check the weather on the day of the tour, but we recommend bring a raincoat and some SPF just incase.
How is it free?*
How long is the tour?
The tour is roughly 2 hours long.
Prefer to join us on a Private Tour?
If you are booking for a group of 8 or more, or just want a more personal experience away from the crowds, then you can book this as a private tour. You can dictate the content, the route and the time or sit back and let your guide lead you.
