This is the most haunted city on earth.
There are things going bump in the night all over this town.
We Interrupt this programme with a Special Announcement: when Halloween Season rolls around we always lay on extra London ghost tours. The historic city of London comes to life with phantoms and spectres during Halloween, so let us take you through dark alleyways and hidden courtyards where haunted happenings will chill you to the core.
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. We’re on their trail… Or are they shadowing us? This haunted London tour is sure to raise the hairs at the back of your neck.
Join our top rated tour guides in London on the 29th (4pm and 7pm) or the 31st of October (7.30pm) for an evening of paranormal activity and haunted places.
If you are visiting London any other time of the year, the Ghost of the City walk goes every Saturday at 7.30pm.
We couldn’t have a Ghosts page without telling you about Jack The Ripper. One of the most famous serial killers in London or even in the United Kingdom. We take you through his slashing ground, London’s Victorian East End, where he has left a haunted history of murders and terror.
The Jack The Ripper Halloween Walking tour happens on the 31st of October and also goes every day at 7.30pm. The meeting point is at Tower Hill Underground station.
This guided tour isn’t about ghosts but it is as chilling as the others! The spot on rubric for this tour would be the Dark Side of London, the Sinister London. England’s London gruesome history. We will take you through central London’s historical alleyways, centuries-old architecture, the Tower of London and, yes, ahem, filthy street names.
This tour goes every Saturday at 2pm from Barbican Tube Station. It’s also available as a virtual tour, accessible from anywhere in the world.

The Original Ghosts of the Old City walking tour goes Virtual! Join Adam from the comfort of your sofa, whilst dry and warm, and let him guide you through the haunted locations of London.
He will take you through shadowy back streets and dimly lit alleys of the ancient City of London. You will be shown things. You will hear the ghost stories. You will “meet”– however fleetingly – the principals. You will be taken there. You will return altered. Return with some memories. Return having undergone an “out of the way” experience: good-humoured but a little creepy, fun but edgy, bonhomous but anonymous.
Anything else? Yes, the Tour is interactive. You will be able to interact with Adam and your fellow walkers – ask questions, make comments, etc. The tour is, as the San Francisco Chronicle put it, “deliciously spooky.”

A sightseeing tour through the historic London’s West End parallel universe of ghouls and haunted houses. This London ghost walk will take you to the world’s most haunted theatre, to a plague-pit with lit corpse candles above it and to a gloomy old palace. Maybe you will be one to see the evidence, a poltergeist, but so you know… “They” can touch you but you can’t touch them.

Come with us and we will take you to the haunted London, to the creepiest parts of London, in alleyways so narrow you can’t open an umbrella in them. If you hear footsteps up a deserted alleyway – or voices of persuasion that whisper in the darkness – or catch a glimpse of a hooded, staring transparent figure… Congratulations – you’ve just fed a haunting of London’s history.
Coming back soon
Talking full-on mediaeval. Talking alleyways like hideaways. Talking places where things went south big time. Talking peeling back layers to reveal something else. Something – several somethings – seriously nasty. Talking torture and ‘bring out your dead” and the faint, sickly smell of rotting flesh in Old London. Talking murder and remnants and body snatchers and revenants and creepy churchyards and slurry in the night “filth” cart.
Coming back soon
Buckingham Palace? The London Eye? Bah, humbug – let’s get real. This is the most haunted city on earth. Must be a thousand resident ghastly ghosts and/or weird, supernatural goings-on between London Bridge and the Houses of Parliament. This walk is necromancy in the dead centre – dead being the mot juste – of the city whose very mist is like a sigh from a graveyard. From a lunatic asylum to a haunted London pub to the First World War officer spattered with mud (near Trafalgar Square, he’s in the wrong place and in the wrong time). So if wayfaring to the rebecks of eternity is your thing, step this way for one of the best ghost tours you’ll experience…
“The Ghost Walk Tour (with Adam) was great fun! It’s an informative and entertaining peek into some of London’s macabre history and folklore. Adam is a captivating storyteller and a personable walking host (he was very good with the tiny children of our group, too, who otherwise might have been a bit too scared by the gruesome tales); the time flew by! I also loved the Jack the Ripper tour (with Shaughan), which I took last year. A London Walks tour is now a staple in my semi-annual holiday to London.” – Barbara (Tripadvisor)
We did the ghost tour for my birthday and it was fantastic. The perfect mix of history, facts and great storytelling. They have covid secure measures in place which made us feel safer. Adam was an excellent tour guide! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my birthday evening.” – Caitlin
