IS THE GHOST WALK CHILD FRIENDLY?
CHILDREN ARE WELCOME
Richard's London Ghost Walk is suitable for children and we welcome kids onto the tour.
Richard will always clear a gap when the group stops at the haunted locations that the tour visits and ensure that smaller children are always at the front so that they can see and hear everything.
In addition, Richard will always gauge whether a child is of a sensitive disposition and will warn the parents when there is going to be a hair raising "jump" moment on the tour if he thinks it might be a little too much, or a little too scary, for a particular child.
It should be said that most of the children who have joined Richard's tour positively love the bits where he makes them jump, and sometimes Richard even goes one better and makes their parents jump!
A FEW COMMENTS FROM CHILDREN WHO HAVE DONE THE TOUR
However, its perhaps best left to the experts - the children themselves - to answer the question, is it suitable for children?
AS YOU CAN SEE, CHILDREN DO ENJOY THE TOUR
So Richard's Ghost Walk is child friendly, although it is not specifically aimed at children. As you can see from the above letters from children who have done the tour there are a few surprises and shocks on the tour, so if your child is of a nervous disposition, please be sure to let Richard know at the start of the tour and he can ensure that they are spared the jumps!
PLEASE REMEMBER IT IS A WALKING TOUR
The London Ghost Walk does, however, include a walk of around 1 3/4 hours and, although this is done at a gentle pace with plenty of stops, and there are places to sit down in the course of the tour, it can be tiresome for tiny legs, especially if they've been walking all day, so please do keep this in mind when booking onto the tour with children.
SENSITIVE TO CHILDRENS REACTIONS
Richard is very sensitive to the reactions of children in the group. He understands that some children like to be frightened whilst others don't. So he will always ensure that those of a sensitive disposition are not near him when he does what he calls his "jump" moments
TO SUM UP
Children are more than welcome to join Richard's London Ghost Walk. The majority of them really do enjoy it and think it's great when he makes them jump or appears to read their minds. Richard will always make the effort to ensure that children are at the front of the group so that they can see everything that is being pointed out.
The only downside for children is that some of them can find the fact that it a walking tour a little demanding, especially if they've been walking all over London all day.
But that said, it is a great way to see the City and, as can be seen from the children's comments above, children really do enjoy Richard's London Ghost Tour.
