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 nightlife 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. James'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 tour concludes at Monument near the Tower of London.
