RICHARD'S ORIGINAL LONDON GHOST WALK
THE CITY OF THE DEAD
The day ends, the shadows descend, the darkness is coming, and something distinctly untoward begins to stir in the alleyways, courtyards and passageways that lie at the heart of the old City of London.
DARE YOU FIND OUT WHAT IT IS?
Why not join London's master of the macabre, Richard Jones, as he leads you on his Original London Ghost Walk around the city's most haunted and chilling locations? Places where the spectres of long dead residents are known to roam. Places that are so little changed and atmospheric that you will almost find yourself believing that you have been spirited back in time.
LONDON'S ONLY EXPERT LED GHOST WALK
This is the haunted London tour that you have read about. The one that has been featured in newspapers and on television channels across the globe.
The only London Ghost tour to be led by the man who is internationally recognised as the leading expert on the darker side of the capital's history. The man who is a published author with 20 critically acclaimed books on haunted, mysterious and sinister Britain to his name. The man who has appeared on television throughout the world discussing and presenting programmes on the paranormal. The man who is widely regarded as the best ghost walk guide in London.
THE WALK BEGINS AT A HAUNTED UNDERGROUND STATION
The walk even begins at a haunted location, where a spectral smell has been known to afflict the nostrils of those charged with maintaining the underground system in the early hours of the morning.
YOU WILL VISIT THE MOST ATMOSPHERIC PLACES IMAGINABLE
With the stench of our starting point still lingering on the chill night air, the tour delves into a warren of creepy, narrow alleyways that nestle at the heart of the old City.
- Move quickly and stay close to your guide, lest the devil's breath should caress your face.
- Gaze in awed wonder at the location where Charles Dickens began that most ghostly of ghostly tales A Christmas Carol.
- See the very building where, in the 18th century, Sir Francis Dashwood founded his notoriously nefarious Hell Fire Club.
- Shiver in an ancient churchyard as Richard regales you with a tale so gruesome, that you will find yourself casting nervous glances over your shoulder, ever vigilant for the dark forces that might still linger in the church's hidden recesses.
- Stand nervously on a shadow draped corner where Richard will relate the saga of the "Bank Nun" and provide evidence that her spirit might still walk the city today.
AS THE NIGHT GETS DARKER SO THE SHADOWS GROW LONGER
Returning to the old alleyways and courtyards, Richard will take you to the spot where a series of events in 2005 convinced one family - who had joined Richard's Halloween tour - that the supernatural is all too real, and all too easily encountered in London.
This is one of several stories on the Alleyways and Shadows London Ghost Walk that is exclusive to this tour, and it perfectly illustrates why, when you join Richard for a haunted tour of London, you are not just joining a guide who has simply read a few stories in a book, but rather, you are joining the source, the man who wrote the book, the leading chronicler of Haunted London.
THE HIGHLIGHT OF A NIGHT THAT IS CRAMMED WITH HIGHLIGHTS
The final destination on the Alleyways and Shadows walk is one of the most paranormally active locations in the City of London. Strange things happen inside this city institution on an almost weekly basis.
But it is also the location from which participants on the ghost tour often depart with possible evidence of paranormal activity. Be sure to bring your camera along to see if you will be one of the lucky few!
SO JOIN LONDON'S MASTER OF THE MACABRE
