Tangle with the macabre on a 1-hour ghost bus tour through London! With your ghoulish guide, visit notorious local haunts (so to speak) of restless spirits, and pass chilling sites of murder, execution and torture such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London and the little-known Cross Bones Graveyard. Hear fascinating facts about the London’s gruesome past and make key stops at the city’s eeriest landmarks.
Choose a convenient evening start time and meet your guide near Trafalgar Square for a 1-hour journey through the city’s gruesome history. Board the ghost bus – a 1960s Routemaster with its own dark history – grab a seat in the shadowy lower or upper deck, and peek out the window as your coach winds through the sinister streets of the capital city.
With such a long and bloody history, many of London’s most esteemed landmarks – such as Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and London Bridge – come with a side of infamy and mystery. Pass the Tower of London, where many tyrants (and the occasional innocent) met their death by ax, and Westminster Abbey to learn about the ancient royal tombs that were discovered there.
As you ride, hear chilling tales of London’s most prolific hauntings, deadliest diseases and most depraved characters. Keep your wits as your guide recounts the Whitehall Mystery, a grisly murder case from the 19th century where neither the victim nor the killer were ever identified. Hear chilling tales of the black dog of Newgate Prison and of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber (and butcher!) of Fleet Street. End with a stop at the Cross Bones Graveyard, a pauper burial ground that became ‘overcharged with dead’ before being closed in 1853.
Your tour returns to the departure point with plenty of time to grab food or drink to warm your chilled soul!

A little hokey but so much fun! What a fun and entertaining way to see some of the seedier parts of the city!
A short review. Myself and my wife both loved this fun tour. My 8 year old granddaughter enjoyed it because there were a couple of other kids onboard her age who she sat with, had she been seated just with us I'm not quite sure she would have enjoyed it so much. There is only one time you exit the bus for a short walk, other than that you are on the bus the whole time. I recommend it, very fun.
This was Blindingly Good!!! The tour guide was Creepy and funny and the stories told as you passed each landmark in the bus were eerie and fun.Also there are things going on inside the bus as well throughout your journey that I will not share so that it does not spoil the fun.Overall this was well worth the time and money and I would suggest you add it to you things to do list in London.
This is a fun way to learn some of London and #39;s history. Me and my sister really enjoyed it. I def recommend this if you are even a little bit interested!
