    Dark Secrets of the City of London

    During the day, this area serves as London’s financial and business capital. However, the City of London is also one of the most ancient areas in the region. It is home to 2,000 years of haunting history; just waiting to be resurrected for you.

  • Bank of England

    Hear the story of the ethereal female figure who haunts the Bank of England. Hear the tale of two beautiful but murderous queens, who sometimes cross phantom paths and have supposedly been seen fighting one another in the evening’s inky darkness.

  • Grave Robberies, Witchcraft Trials and Public Executions

    Hanged, burned, boiled and roasted alive, these were just a few of the forsaken fates some unfortunate people have met here in the ancient alleys and original buildings that comprise the City of London.

  • Jack the Ripper

    Visit a Victorian pub with a secret even most locals do not know: it was built upon an old prison and many of the former jail cells now serve as cellars. But beware, employees of this age-old pub say it is plagued by a poltergeist to this day.

  • Smithfield’s Market

    Listen to the sinful stories of Bloody Mary and the ghost of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, known as the ‘Grey Lady’. This is an evening of thrills and chills as only your local guide can provide. Historical, fascinating and frightening, it is the perfect way to wrap up your day.
