Duration: 90 minutes
Description
Start your tour in Greenwich — near the bank of the famous Thames River — as darkness falls, then step through the UNESCO World Heritage–listed streets as your guide shares hair-raising stories of restless spirits and scary specters.

Learn the curse of the 19th-century tea clipper Cutty Sark — the historic sailing ship in dry-dock in Royal Maritime Greenwich — and hear of the poor, unfortunate souls who lost their lives sailing to China and Australia in years gone by.

Illuminated by the street lights, delve into Greenwich Park — widely considered the grandest of London’s Royal Parks — and hear chilling tales of the many kings and queens whose spirits are said to walk the grounds.

Follow your guide along the Greenwich foot tunnel and hold your nerve in case of visitations from beyond the grave! Visit the 19th-centruy Trafalgar Tavern — a local inn once frequented by Charles Dickens — and perhaps enjoy a refreshing pint of English beer (own expense). Then, finish your ghostly walking tour in central Greenwich.

I am a part time tour guide and have been on many other tours myself so do have expectations of professional standards. I obviously didnt let Ash know this as didnt want to put him off. Myself and my group travelled up from East Sussex and another was local. We were really looking forward to an evening's informative entertainment. Ash is clearly a pleasant individual but he is lacking presentational skills carrying a lantern and dressing a bit more dramatically would have given a more professional first impression. He looked very casual. Furthermore, the events he described he did not bring to life at all!!!! He simply didn't seem to be knowledgeable about the history of Greenwich and was very vague 'One example of many... The River Police investigated a strange craft which disappeared he gave us no clue as to when it happened..there was often no mention of dates ..was it 2003 did it make the newspapers at the time??? The whole tour see to be lacking meaty ghost stories and paranormal investigations were constantly mentioned!!!! His language in front of small children of which there were three in the small group was not always appropriate!!!!!!We couldn't wait for the tour to end..and we were extremely disappointed!!!
