Overview

Tangle with the macabre on a ghost bus tour through London. With your ghoulish guide, visit notorious local haunts (so to speak) of restless spirits, and pass chilling sites of murder, execution, and torture such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, and the infamous Fleet Street. Hear fascinating facts about London’s gruesome past and make key stops at the city’s eeriest landmarks. 
  • See some of the capital’s most haunted and grizzly sites
  • Pass by top London attractions including Tower Bridge and the Tower of London
  • Be entertained by spooky tales, chilling legends and tales of London’s dark past
  • Travel around the city in a classic 1960s Routemaster with a Gothic twist
Choose a convenient evening start time and meet your guide near Trafalgar Square for a journey through the city’s gruesome history. Board the ghost bus—a 1960s Routemaster with its own dark history—grab a seat in the shadowy lower or upper deck, and peek out the window as your coach winds through the sinister streets of the capital city.  

With such a long and bloody history, many of London’s most esteemed landmarks—such as the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral and London Bridge—come with a side of infamy and mystery. Pass the Tower of London, where many tyrants (and the occasional innocent) met their death by ax, and Westminster Abbey to learn about the ancient royal tombs that were discovered there. 

As you ride, hear chilling tales of London’s most prolific hauntings, deadliest diseases, and most depraved characters. Keep your wits as your guide recounts the Whitehall Mystery, a grisly murder case from the 19th century where neither the victim nor the killer were ever identified. Hear chilling tales of the black dog of Newgate Prison and of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber (and butcher!) of Fleet Street.

Your tour returns to the departure point with plenty of time to grab food or drink to warm your chilled soul.

Our tour was scheduled for march 17th st 9pm. No one advised us that the tour was canceled and the last one was at 7:30. We were there waiting until 9:30 until we got a hold of someone finally and he informed us. Very unprofessional and I would like back a full refund.

I really really enjoyed the tour, it was informative, funny, little bit scary! (Like what’s happening!?!) the conductor and health inspector were hilarious! Only downside was we were on the bus tour with a group of people who were on a hen/stag do and were so loud and rude. Only saving grace was the microphone was loud enough to hear over. The conductor did try and make them shut up but it didn’t really work. If they weren’t there I would of LOVED it! I learnt so much!

An excellent entertaining evening. I would highly recommend to anyone. I was alone in London while my daughters were in a show and this tour was the perfect way to pass the time. The guides were funny and built up a great atmosphere. All in all a fun night

Comedy Tour

Tour was more 'comedy' than we had anticipated. Although it was good to see some of the sights these weren't always visible due to lighting, traffic and lack of direction from the tour guide. Traffic hold ups are inevitable in London but this does also detract from the overall experience!
icon Response from Host , Feb 2020
Hi there, Hope you are well today. We’re sorry to hear that the tour wasn’t quite what you expected. As advertised, we are a family friendly comedy-horror theatre experience on wheels. But in remaining friendly to customers of all ages, the emphasis is on the comedy. It is a shame that you were unable to see particular sights, we very rarely hear this complaint as the vast majority of the landmarks on our tour and incredibly well lit at night, and our guides are usually very good at pointing everything out to passengers. We are sorry that this was not the case on your tour, perhaps due to the traffic you noted. After running for over a decade, we find that most of our customers find the experience more immersive and entertaining when taking place after sunset, and that usually there isn’t any trouble in seeing the landmarks. Unfortunately, as you state, London traffic delays are to be expected, but the tour is usually approximately 75 minutes in duration. If you would like to provide any further feedback, we’d love to hear more from you at feedback@theghostbustours.com. Many thanks, and apologies again. Best wishes, Max
