Short read: This is the most haunted city on earth

Long read: Unutterably old, built over a fen of undisclosed horrors, believed to contain occult lines of geometry. A city where the very mist is like a sigh from a graveyard. Now I don’t want to weird you out, but where we’re going tonight time past and time present can fuse… especially when the daylight bleeds away. If in a dark window you see an even darker silhouette staring back, or if the branches of a tree suddenly shiver like a spider’s web that’s caught something, or if you follow a stranger into a graveyard or a pub where everything isn’t as it seems… you could well be wayfaring to the rebecks of eternity. Fancy a pint? Guided by actors Richard III and Captain Spooky aka Peter.

GHOSTS, GASLIGHT & GUINNESS – THE PRACTICALS

Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness takes place at 7.30 pm every Wednesday evening in the Summer programme (which runs from May 1 – October 31). During this winter’s programme – 1 November 2019 – 30 April 2020 – the G, G  & G walk has decided to hibernate.

The meeting point is just outside the main exit of HolbornTube.  N.B. the Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness Walk ends in Covent Garden, very near Covent GardenTube Stop.

LONDON WALKS VIDEOS

The video of the Ghosts, Gaslight & Guinness walk is still in the pipeline. But you can get an idea of the calibre of the guiding by looking at this video of Captain Spooky aka Peter guiding his West End Ghost Walk and this one of Richard III guiding his Mayfair Walk.
