Murder, crime and disease are three of the biggest parts of London’s past, and now you can hear all about the capital’s sordid history in eye-watering detail. We will see you 5pm every Friday!
Be amazed and entertained by your Insider guide as you hear some of the most shocking stories of the bodies beneath our feet and the ghosts that still walk amongst us. From lucky ghosts to grizzly murder sprees, London is a genuine hotbed of death and debauchery.
This tour isn’t for the fainthearted. Tour highlights include:
Gruesome tales of hangings, murder and grave-robbing;
The most haunted theatre in London;
The home of the two-headed boy of Bengal, and other ‘curiosities’;
The business that held “Dances on the Dead” – quite literally;
The ‘gin palaces’ that used to welcome 12-year olds;
An 18th Century directory of ‘Covent Garden Ladies’ – sort of like a Georgian Time Out for Prostitutes.
Beginning in the former red light district of Covent Garden, the tour will shock and unnerve you as you follow a trail of death and destruction through the capital’s history. Touching on key stories such as grave-robbing and the bubonic plague, the tour will take you to some of the most dastardly sights London has to offer.
