Connecting central London to Southwark, several different London Bridges have spanned the River Thames, including an infamous medieval structure that stood for more than 600 years. Though a modern bridge now takes its place, the area is still known as the crossroads for wandering spirits and the site of many dark deeds.
Make your way to the meeting point at the modern London Bridge to connect with your guide, and set off on a 1.5-hour walking tour of the storied area, once greatly feared by law-abiding Londoners. Hear tales of the notorious figures who left their mark on the neighborhood, including the Bishop of Winchester, body snatchers awaiting their prey in darkened alleys and a local lady, Miss Murray, whose ghost is said to haunt her favorite pub.
Listen as your guide relates spine-tingling stories of surgery performed without anesthesia in a historic operating theater and the demise of poor souls who languished in England's oldest prison. See if you can feel the restless spirits of prostitutes buried in a nearby mass grave, and look out for a resident canine ghost during a visit to a a 16th-century pub.
