Full Details

Open Top Bus Drive Through Haunted London

Step aboard our vintage open top bus to begin our journey through the dark and haunted streets of London. Hear the tales of the legends buried at Westminster Abbey and see the banqueting house where Charles I was beheaded, a relatively common punishment for crime at the time. 

We then travel to the Old Bailey, the site of numerous public hangings, the Royal London Hospital where the Elephant Man lived, and hear the tales of Mrs Lovett's pie shop with her speciality fillings, the butcherous barber who lived next door and would cut off more than just your hair.

Ghost Walk through Smithfield Market

Stay close to our guide as we walk through the deserted Smithfield market and the surrounding cobbled streets. You'll see the William Wallace plaque where Braveheart was tortured, and learn of the 19th century body snatchers, John Bishop and Thomas Williams, were hanged at Newgate prison in front of several thousand boisterous Londoners.

Jack the Ripper

As the shadows lengthen, we approach London's East End, a hotbed of crime and vice in the 19th century. During the autumn of 1888, a terror struck when Jack the Ripper came out of the fog and dimly lit alleys just long enough to stalk and butcher his five victims.

At this point we leave the safety of the bus and walk his death trail inspecting the murder sites, deciphering the evidence and discussing his suspects. To this day the case remains unsolved.

Come and investigate the case yourself, are you brave enough?

Fancy a Nightcap?

Then join us in the warmth of the Sherlock Holmes Pub. The pub also boasts a wide collection of the investigator's memorabilia. The pub also has a wide variety of meals including a traditional fish and chip supper on offer which can be purchased from the bar. 

The tour ends at the Sherlock Holmes pub, which is situated close to Trafalgar Square.
