What You Can Expect

Ghost Walking Tour of London Including River Thames Boat Ride

Ghost Walking Tour of London

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 Palace where a royal murder took place and murky mystery behind the haunting. Then 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.

Then head to the riverfront for a boat ride along the Thames 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, you’ll 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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

I went on this tour with my two daughters, it was on the day of my youngest 18th. We had Tom as our guide who was excellent, his stories were really good, his own personal story was very engaging. He even managed to chat with lots of the group during the tour. We particularly enjoyed the boat trip, not to mention the wine, all in all a lovely walk round London with some vivid stories and great company, good job Tom

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

We booked our tour as a 30th birthday surprise for our sons and went on the Saturday before Christmas. We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about London too. Our guide, Tom, really knew his stuff and told lots of stories. We would definitely do another one. Maybe Jack the Ripper next time!!!
