Explore the darker and more mysterious side of the English capital. Set your imagination free, and listen to true tales of the murders and gore that gave life to the city's ghost stories. The infamous sights, haunted parks and sinister locales of central London expose generations-old legends.

As your guide shares ghastly tales, head past bloodstained monuments, forgotten plague pits and ghostly locations. At one of London's most haunted parks, stroll through the dark hinterland to an old plague grave, and uncover the history of the morbid disease that wiped out nearly a third of the city’s population.

Travel to St James's Palace, where it has been rumoured that the ghosts of Ernest Augustus – Duke of Cumberland – and his servant, Sellis, have been seen walking the corridors. Hear about the conspiracies behind these deaths before moving on to Westminster.

At Westminster Abbey, where more than 3,000 people and 17 monarchs have been buried, hear about the execution of King Charles and the vast number of spirits that have lingered on to haunt the abbey. Then, walk to the Westminster Bridge to the spot where Jack the Ripper allegedly took his own life by plunging into the river.

The Tower of London – one of the most haunted places in the UK – has been host to more than 900 years of blood, death and scandal. Immerse yourself in the former lives of London’s popular spirits, such as Arbella Stuart (one of the most famous), Queen Anne Boleyn (one of the most tenacious) and many more.
