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!

If you're looking for a fun, quirky way to spend an evening, you should totally book this tour. It's spooky, entertaining and historically really interesting. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone visiting London or to locals who, like me, love uncovering new sides of the city.
This tour was everything we hoped for - we arrived in London prior to Halloween and were looking for some 'spooky' activities to take part in. We came across this tour on this site, and were not disappointed. The tour guides were extremely funny, and gave us a great tour of London with a nice mix of history, humor, and dark secrets. Would definitely recommend!
Excellent tour the guides were very good and very funny. Well worth the money
Exzellent Tour, Highway recommended
I can't say enough good things about this tour. It was full of horror, history, and humor. Our tour 'guide' and his associates were entertaining and informative. The bus itself was clean, well decorated and comfortable. We three adults, 70, 65, and 43 all vote it as the best time we had during a week in London. Don't miss even if you don't normally do 'ghost tours.'
Great tour, my kids a nit young (7 and 8) but we all had great time, thank you!
Great experience! Conductor and cohort were great fun sights and stories made for a great evening.
