First, a Special Announcement: It’s Halloween Season so, as always, we’ve laid on some extra ghost walks for the loooooooong Halloween Weekend (Friday, October 27 to Tuesday, October 31). Click here to see the full programme of Ghost Walks over the looooooong Halloween Weekend.
Guaranteed Ghosts. (‘Nuff said?) It’s Halloween. Let’s noctambulate. Walk about at night. We’re the living. (Who was it who said the living are the dead on holiday?) We won’t be the only ones walking about. This time of the year – this night especially – the folks who aren’t on holiday are also noctambulating. We’ll be meeting some of them.
Yeah, that’s right – if we’re there, they’ll come…
At night the ancient City is deserted. And eerie. Exploring its shadowy back streets and dimly lit alleys we might be in a medieval citadel, in overpowering stone. The very street names – Aldersgate, Cloth Fair, Charterhouse, Threadneedle – take us far back. We’re alone… Or are we? For this is the hour when the She-Wolf of France glides through the churchyard, the hour when the dark figure on Newgate wall rattles his chains, the hour when the Black Nun keeps her lonely vigil, and something inexpressibly evil lurks behind a tiny window. We’re on their trail… Or are they shadowing us? “How easy it is to awaken the unwanted attention of things that should sleep quietly in their tombs or hiding places…” Guided by the Duke of Darkness or the Shadow Walker or the Woman in Black.
Want to preview the walk and the guiding? Watch the video.
It all comes down to the guiding (exponentially so on Ghost Walks) – but don’t just take our word for it.
Or for that matter, their word. See for yourself.
N.B. the Halloween Ghosts of the Old City walk ends back at St. Paul’sTube Stop. Or near enough to.
