Historical Horror…

There’s arguably no place spookier than the infamous Tower of London. Cross over the drawbridge and enter the secure castle walls to discover thrilling stories of notorious prisoners. Do try not to lose your head as you hunt for the ghosts of princes, Arabella Stuart and the famed White Lady…

Royal Ghosts…

Give your ghost hunting a royal pedigree at Hampton Court Palace. The Haunted Gallery is supposedly frequented by Henry VIII’s fourth wife, Catherine Howard. Dragged from the gallery to her ultimate execution at the Tower of London, her screams are said to echo around the room at night…

Haunted Drinking Spots…

Fancy a quieter evening? Opt for a pint in one of London’s many haunted pubs. The Ten Bells, Jack the Ripper’s local, is perfect for a drink with a side shot of the shivers. Or for literary horror fans, a trip to The Spaniard’s Inn is in order. The drinking spot is mentioned in our horror favourite, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the ghost of the infamous Dick Turpin is said to haunt the pub to this day…
