What You Can Expect

London Ghost Walking Tour

Ghost Walking Tour of London

As evening sets in, meet your tour guide at Green Park and steel yourself for a journey through the spirited side of London. As you set off, take in the city's nocturnal nature, where bubbling night life mingles with what lurks in the shadows, and hear chilling tales of murder, execution and intrigue.

Begin with a visit to London’s most haunted park, where beneath your feet rest the bones of unknown plague victims. Pass homes of ill-repute such as the infamous St Jame’s Palace, a royal residence that was the site of a gory murder in the 19th century. Hear grisly details of the slashed valet and about his ghost that has prowled the halls ever since. Follow the trail of hauntings to London’s most possessed house, followed by the Royal Academy and 10 Downing Street – the Prime Minister’s haunted residence.  

Paranormal enthusiasts will relish stops at locations of famous sightings like Eaton Place, where the Unknown Soldier has been seen standing beside his grave, and All Hallows Church, the haunt (so to speak) of the Lady in Black. No haunted tour through London would be complete without recalling the serial murders of Jack the Ripper or viewing the ominous Tower of London. Learn more about the tower’s bloody history as a site of imprisonment and execution. Imagine the terror of Queen Anne Boleyn – the tower’s most sighted ghost – as she walked to the execution block in 1536. 

Your 2.5-hour tour concludes at Monument near the Tower of London.

Please note: Though this is a walking tour, tube transit is required. Please bring a charged Oyster card or money to purchase one en route.

Great tour. There were no other people joining the group, so we had a private tour! Our guide, Tom, was knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The weather was, for once, perfect, so we had an excellent evening.

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

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!!!
