London's History is Horrorable
3 hour London tour starting: 9am or 1pm
Door-2-Door: starts & ends at your hotel/anywhere in central London
. . . . . .
On this horrible tour we explore execution sites, plague pits, murder scenes and haunted churchyards. We'll probe the gruesome underbelly of London's history, from the middle ages to the 20th century; a sobering combination of bad, mad and plain old sad.
One of Jack the Ripper's gruesome murders took place in a quiet, isolated backstreet - just wide enough for my London cab to drive down.
Have you ever seen evidence of 'stacking', or visited the improbable site of a London golem (near where they hanged pirates)? We'll also visit the site of a notorious London 'hangfair' and a park dedicated to acts of heroism, 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. There are plenty of stops for photo opps
Death. . . . . and ghosts.
