The creepiest ghost tours in London
Most historic sites require a fair amount of imagination to fill the gaps between a few artefacts and famous events long gone. But at Hampton Court Palace you can stand in the very rooms where Henry VIII eyed up the ladies and Charles I was kept prisoner. It would be a waste, then, to only visit the palace by day, when there are 500 years of nighttime tales to be told, too.
Murder, torture, executions. Plenty of macabre activities have taken place in the 'Bloody Tower' aka, The Tower of London. Join one of these twilight tours hosted by uniformed Yeoman Warders to hear all about the buildings spooky stories and gruesome history.
All aboard the bus of nightmares for a journey to hel… er, we mean Houses of Parliament and other well known London landmarks. With a lick of black paint, an old-school Routemaster has been given a suitably ghoulish makeover for the Ghost Bus Tour, which will whisk you around the capital on a whistle-stop adventure of London’s most malevolent spots.
