Ghost Bus Tours

It’s all aboard for this Ghost Bus Tour that takes you through the darkest, most macabre corners of the Big Smoke’s grisly history on board a classic Sixties Routemaster. The horror-theatre-comedy bus tour, so to speak, visits iconic London locations such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s and Tower of London, revealing the murderous, torture-filled and downright ghastly incidents that have taken place over the years, with your haunting crew providing spooky entertainment as you go.

£20, Daily, 7.30pm & 9pm

Get your footy gear on too, with a £50 bar tab going to the best dressed.
