Event description
A macabre look at the old city through back streets and true stories.

About this Event

Blood, death and mystery. What could be lurking around the next corner? Step off the beaten path, away from the hustle and bustle of one of the busiest cities in the world to uncover real stories that will make you look and think twice. Centuries of history have unfolded on these little narrow alleyways, and you will soon discover the darker side is closer than you imagined.

Your guide will be wearing black, perhaps dressed for a Victorian funeral, and she will escort you down legendary corridors to seek out the hidden history within. Stone paths and cobbled pavements will be at our feet, but tred lightly as you dive into the past to unearth frightfully real tragedies. These people lived and worked just like you and me, but they met their end in a most horrid way. 

This tour has everything: ghosts and legends, hangings and burning alive, Jack the Ripper and the Resurection Men... there's plenty to uncover. Walk with me as we investigate some of the City of London’s hidden gems… churches that have stood for hundreds of years, corners teeming with secrets and scandals, and corridors to take us on our journey. 

This walk will unveil areas you may not have explored before, or even help you to view some old familiar places with new eyes. No other walk will allow you to encounter exploding dragons, bar-b-qued saints, glimmering gold makers, and the ancient practice of bequeathing your money to confirm a ticket to Heaven!

COVID-19 Guidelines

In order to safely conduct this tour for myself and my clients, I ask that all government recommended guidelines be complied with. I will be wearing a mask and would request that clients also comply to cover mouth and nose. I will use hand sanitiser before and after the tour, and recommend that clients bring their own sanitiser. Additionally, I recommend arriving a few minutes early to go to the restroom and wash your hands if you travel via the underground. Please wear a mask while on the underground. During the tour, we will maintain a safe distance of 1m apart. In the event that you are not well on the day, please do not attend the tour. If the guide is unwell, you will be informed the morning of the tour and full refunds will be administered. It is essential that we all look after each other and keep safe during this time. Phone number must be provided at time of booking for communication options related to your tour only.
