Haunted London Tour

Haunted London - A City Full of Ghosts

Experience Haunted London!

Tour the streets of Haunted London in the comfort of an iconic London Taxi.

London,  a city whose name conjures up images of Jack the Ripper and the Tower of London,  is said to be the most haunted city in the world. Legions of phantoms roam the capital and are an essential part of British history,  folklore,   and legend.  Dark alleys echo with phantom foot steps and spooky shadows drift amongst the old houses and pubs.

Londinium was established as a town by the Romans around 43 AD. Since then,  the level of its streets has risen by as much as 28 feet. Every layer of the city is stamped with the memories and experiences of the millions and people who have lived and died here.

It is said that spirits abide in places where great misery or great happiness has occured. Perhaps that is why you are more likely to have a ghostly encounter in London than in any other city in the world.

Journey through the streets of Haunted London with us.

50 Berkeley Square

Berkeley Square

We take you to 50 Berkeley Square in Mayfair to hear the countless tales of hauntings that surround this house.

During the Victorian era,  50 Berkeley Square was believed to be the most ‘aunted ‘ouse in London. There are many stories that are said to explain the origins of the house’s disturbances. One of these stories begins with an eccentric man named Myers. He was due to be married,  but shortly before the wedding,  his fiance left him heartbroken. He became a recluse and moved into a tiny room at the top of the house. There he lived alone with his memories,  prowling the house by candlelight each night.

“A gentleman,  a disbeliever in ghosts,  dared to sleep in number 50 and was found a corpse in the middle of the floor after frantically ringing for help in vain. Rumour suggests other cases of the same kind,  all ending in death,  madness,  or both as a result of sleeping,  or trying to sleep in that room.” — This quote is attributed to both Mayfair Magazine 1879 and Notes and Queries circa 1870.

Join us to hear other haunting experiences associated with the house,  including the sounds of moving furniture,  ringing bells,  and cries from behind locked doors.

The Grenadier Pub

Grenadier Pub

The Grenadier is one of London’s most enchanting–and most haunted–pubs. It nestles in Wilton Mews,  a tranquil nook of London with the feel of an English country village.

The Grenadier boasts a military history. The Duke of Wellington’s Grenadier Guards used it as their mess. During this time,  a young subaltern (junior officer) was caught cheating at cards and beaten so badly that he died. His violent and untimely death,  in September of an undetermined year,  sparked on onslaught of supernatural activity that persists to this day.

A solemn,  silent spectre has been seen moving slowly across the low-ceilinged rooms. Objects either disappear or else are mysteriously moved overnight. Unseen hands rattle tables and chairs,   and a strange,  icy chill has been known to hang in the air,  sometimes for days on end.

“One landlord’s son saw a black shape outside his bedroom one September evening and his mother also saw a figure climbing the stairs who suddenly vanished.  A visitor to the public house saw a figure by the side of the bed in the middle of the night which then disappeared.  Another landlord, Geoffrey Bernard, reported poltergeist activity and shadows during the month of September.” — from the Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by John and Anne Spencer.
