Ghosts of the City of London Tour

Dare to explore the darker side of history with our Ghosts of the City of London Tour. This thrilling 2 to 4 hour walking tour ventures into the haunted heart of the historic Square Mile, where the ancient city founded by the Romans hosts a myriad of ghostly tales and eerie legends. From spine-chilling screams to shadowy figures glimpsed in the mist, this tour invites you to uncover the supernatural secrets of London's oldest quarter.

Your ghostly journey begins at St Paul's tube station, setting the stage with stories of a British queen whose mournful cries still echo through a nearby churchyard. As night falls, tread softly past scenes of historical witch trials, graverobbers at their grim work, and haunted pubs where the past never rests. Hear the tale of a woman tormented by ghostly visitations, and the blood-soaked legacy of a ruthless queen.

Navigating through narrow, cobblestoned streets, you'll encounter stories of ethereal monks materialising in the gloom. Each site has been a witness to centuries of history, where the veil between the past and present seems especially thin. While accessibility may vary due to the historic and uneven nature of the terrain, this atmospheric tour promises a memorable evening of frights and fascinations.

End your eerie excursion at Barbican tube station, carrying with you the chilling whispers of the city’s spectral inhabitants. Whether you're a believer in the paranormal or simply a lover of spine-tingling historical tales, the "Ghosts of the City of London Tour" offers a hauntingly good time.

Can be adapted to run between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the amount of ground covered, any inclusion of pub stops .... or how many spooky tales you can handle!
