London: Ghastly Ghosts 2-Hour Walking Tour

1. London: Ghastly Ghosts 2-Hour Walking Tour

Go off the beaten path on a 2-hour after dark walking tour of London, and learn about the city’s ghastly ghosts and ghouls. Meet your guide at All Hallows by-the-Tower, one of the oldest churches in London, with a Saxon arch and recycled Roman tiles. Surrounded by the City of London’s skyscrapers and trendy restaurants, it’s hard to imagine the full extent of London's haunted past, but as you sneak down the dark streets of "the world's best city," your guide will regale you with tales of ghouls, ghosts, and specters. Feel the chills down your spine as London’s dark history is brought to life. Hear stories of unspeakable suffering, blood-curdling crime, and horrid murders. London is full to the brim with terrible tales of midnight monsters and devilish demons. Dare to walk in the footsteps of the unexplained, and experience a terrifying walk through the historic City of London, starting at the Tower of London and ending at St Paul's Cathedral.

London: Museum of London and Roman Highlights Guided Tour

2. London: Museum of London and Roman Highlights Guided Tour

On this interactive tour you will explore the Roman archaeological ruins located in the City of London. Whether you are a novice or have a more in-depth knowledge of the Roman Empire’s expansion into London, this engaging tour will inspire your curiosity and expand your knowledge.  This walking tour takes you to the area of the original Roman settlement, Londinium. There, your expert guide will show you some of the most intact sections of the old Roman city wall, which spanned the entire old Roman fort. You will come to understand how the Romans built the city where London now stands, bridging the River Thames. Learn how Londinium was the largest city in Britannia and a vital international port. This remarkable tour also takes you to locations that most visitors would never discover on their own, including a Roman crypt with the original flooring of a Roman house. When available, this tour will also visit the famed Temple of Mithras, located in the City of London.  With much of Roman London underground, this expertly-curated tour will show you the remaining structures, some of which are still in excellent condition and have survived for over 2,000 years.

Roman London Walking Tour

3. Roman London Walking Tour

Much of Roman London is now 23 feet or 7 metres underground but if you know where to look then you can still see Roman structures today and what makes it especially incredible is that they just about survived 2000 years of construction, great fires, bombs and wars. This walking tour takes you away from the mainstream tourist sights of the West End into the original Londinium or the City of London as it is today. You will visit the sites of the old Roman Baths in London and see some of the most impressive sections of the old Roman city wall which used to span the entire city along with the ruins of an old Roman fort. The tour also takes you underground into a crypt with the flooring of a Roman house and a ‘re-laid’ Roman pavement or sidewalk. Where possible you will visit the famed Temple of Mithras, the Persian god of heavenly light which was discovered in the 20th century before being moved to a new location.  It has now been painstakingly put back in place and restored but underneath a 21st century office tower. You will visit the site of the largest Roman building north of the Alps, the famous London Stone and the remains of the London amphitheater where 7000 people used to watch the events unfold in the arena. They might not be the most complete Roman buildings in the world but they provide a fascinating insight on the very earliest history of modern London and get to see places that even most locals never get to explore.

George was simply wonderful! He is so knowledgeable and his passion for the history was contagious! The 3 hours walk went in a blink and we learned so much! We loved his energy and he answered an endless list of questions from the entire group on each being more excited that we asked. We didn't want to go hone after spending time together! Will for sure recommend George and see what other tours with him we can do. Thank you George for everything we loved it! Jonathan, Sabina & Pamela

Very interesting tour with lots and lots of excellent stories, all related in an interactive and fun way. Couldn’t believe how quickly 2 hours passed, it was just brilliant and George, our tour guide , is an absolute star. Please, please though, the group was far too large for one guide, George mastered it brilliantly, but not fair to guides.

We had a great evening with our guide George. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining with his stories of Londons history, with some ghost stories added too!

well organised walk with well presented interesting facts and stories

George was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable. Would recommend.
