There’s no point denying it, our city has a dark side. London is steeped in history, and therefore home to countless ghost stories and gruesome, grisly tales: myths and urban legends as well as true and terrible facts. If you’re drawn to the morbid and macabre, to overgrown cemeteries and haunted alleyways, witches and ghosthunters, spectres and strange unexplained goings on, look no further. Here’s everything you need to get stuck into London's spookiest spots and scariest things to do.
