London's History is Horrorable


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!
