Description

Discover Deptford history walk with a spooky twist for Halloween!

Our FREE, guided, 2-hour walk will take you through the rich historical areas of Deptford but this time with accompanying tales of ghostly, grizzly goings on, plus stories around the old Deptford Railway Station and Market Yard before it was redeveloped.

Visitors will learn why Peter The Great, Christopher Marlowe, Samuel Pepys, Victorian poverty-mapper Charles Booth and Tahitian servant Mydidee all visited Deptford and discover the rich multicultural and maritime history underpinning one of London’s most vibrant districts. The tour begins next to Deptford Station's Carriage Ramp, London’s oldest, listed railway structure.

Led by Sean Patterson, a RADA trained actor and walking tour guide with an MA in London Studies from QMUL, the FREE guided tour starts and ends at Deptford Market Yard, where walkers will be spoilt for choice with Halloween inspired street food fare and creepy cocktails and spooky slushies served up by award-winning cocktail bar Little Nan's.

Optional: Come dressed for the occasion and the best Halloween costume will receive a complimentary Tea Pot of Cocktail for two at Little Nan’s in Deptford Market Yard, post haunted history walk!
