London town is no stranger to ghost stories, the city has its fair share and our Insider guides will tell you who they are, what they are and where they hide. Walking down the back streets and alleyways of London’s West End, we will bring to light its history and the lives of those who are still known to haunt the area today.

Some ghosts are friendly wanderers who never wanted to leave and others more frightening that will make you want to leave in haste! The Nocturnal London walking tour will shed light on the history of the streets in which some of the ghosts lived in their lifetime and their day-to-day hardships. The Victorian era saw a heightened period of interest in the world beyond- spirits, ghosts and the odd unsolved murder. Although our ghosts cross the centuries, after a stroll through the West End’s darker side, you’ll understand why the subject excited the prim and proper Victorians…


On this tour you will:

  • Squeeze through one of London’s narrowest alleyways.
  • Visit one of London’s many plague pits and one of the city’s earliest leper hospitals.
  • Learn about the ghost behind a frighteningly tight Victorian bolero jacket.
  • Venture down a tunnel so haunted that our Insider tour guides may not even be brave enough to walk down it…
  • Learn about the murder mystery that gripped Londoners long before Jack the Ripper came on the scene.
  • Discover the hidden alleys which became prime locations for films such as Harry Potter.

Famous Ghosts and Infamous Murders is a walking tour that will have you discovering new haunts of your own, making you look over your shoulder at every twist and turn. If you are looking for a guided ghost tour filled with history but peppered with spooky stories, look no further!
