Description
Take a journey through the dark side of London on this ghostly nighttime walking tour, and listen as your guide tells you stories of the city’s haunted past of murder, execution and mystery.

After meeting your group, make your way to London’s most haunted park — a forgotten plague pit. Then, move on the St James's Palace where a royal murder took place and murky mystery behind the haunting. Continue on to the most haunted house in London which has spine tingling tales, and the Royal Academy where nuns can be heard screaming and doors slamming!

Scared? Don't worry, your guide will protect you from the spooky ghosts while providing lots of interesting historical insight. Continue to Eaton Place in Belgravia and learn the legend of the Unknown Warrior, an unidentified soldier buried in Westminster Abbey in 1920. When night falls and the church goes quiet, he can still be seen standing beside his grave.

Next, head to the riverfront for a walk along the Thames River where you will hear myths about the Lady in Black (who haunts All Hallows church), the ghosts of Downing Street and, of course, the mysterious Jack the Ripper, one of London’s most legendary murderers.

As you approach the Tower of London with its towering, ominous grey stone walls, learn about the many ghosts of people who were executed and murdered there, including wives of Henry VIII. You may even see Queen Anne Boleyn, the Tower’s most sighted ghost who was beheaded there in 1536 and can still be seen wandering the corridors at night — without a head, of course.

You will use public transportation on this tour, so be prepared with a charged Oyster card or a valid ticket. But don’t worry, you can also purchase one at the start of the tour.

Small group. Guide was highly informative and enthusiastic about each of the locations and stories attached to each location. Also allowed us to see major areas and landmarks of London at night.

The tour was at 6 PM on a summer day, so our guide mentioned that it was less spooky due to the sun still being out. That being said, Natalie did her best to impart ghost stories around London, but he storytelling abilities were sub-par. She was very nice and we left having a greater appreciation for some of London's history, but this was not a scary ghost tour at all. After reading the reviews of other customers, I wish Tom had been our tour guide.

Apparently, London is a lot less spooky than I anticipated. Lots of walking, not that much info.

Tour guide Natalie was very experienced only a couple months on the job. This really showed in her delivery of the material, which was not great. She nearly lost her group in the park because she was so far ahead and texting instead of looking. When asked about it she was sarcastic and said people should keep up. Then lost two when she failed to make sure people got through the tube gate, and couldn't help them because she was on the other side. Poor service.

The guide did not turn up, we waited along with a number of other people for an hour past the scheduled time but no guide arrived. So I cannot comment on the actual tour hope other people have more than a ghost of a chance
