Discover London horrors on this gruesome (yet historically accurate!) private London tour
I’m a born and bred London tour guide who enjoys providing commentary and anecdotes about all our tour stops and London’s grisly gruesome historic sites; tales of the mad, bad and plain old sad.
During this horrorable tour we explore execution sites, plague pits, murder scenes and haunted churchyards. We probe the gruesome underbelly of London’s history up close.
It’s said that England has more ghosts and horrible history than any other nation. We Brits love a bit of grisly storytelling and the scary thing is that everything on this tour is based on historical truth.
My love of London and its history is all encompassing, so we’ll also explore where plague victims were buried, witches were burnt and one of Jack the Ripper’s ghastly murders took place; it’s in an isolated backstreet, just wide enough for my London cab to drive down.
We’ll discover evidence of ‘stacking’ and ‘resurrection’ and visit a site where they hanged pirates. In a secluded pocket-park we’ll find a memorial hailing acts of heroism but tinged by tragedy.
From the dissolute to the Dissolution, the great thing about this London Horror Tour is that I don’t have to make any of it up. Well, the ghost stories might not be true. . . or are they!
This is not a drive-by tour. Having a driver/walking guide like me conducting your tour in a London taxi is super-efficient and will help to make the day enjoyable and memorable.

I’m your driver, and private guide and I’ll be explaining as we explore. There are plenty of stops for photo opps. I’ll talk as we walk and when we’re up close. All walks are very short. Time spent viewing a location varies from one or two minutes to a few minutes.
We’re always close to coffee shops and places for bathroom breaks.
