The Ghost Bus Tour will take you on a journey through London's gruesome past and into the dark heart of the capital.

As you pass famous landmarks like the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, St. Paul's, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, the conductor will point out where all the grisly murders, tortures and executions took place -- and where the restless spirits still linger!

You'll hear the spine-tingling tale of Charles I's execution, and see where they stuck the heads of traitors on the City gates.

There will also be a few surprises onboard the one-time funeral bus... so don't be surprised if the dead have left their mark.

If you like being scared silly, then you might like to look at our page of other Halloween events in London.

Important note: This tour is not recommended for young children. If you'd like a nighttime bus tour without the ghosts, then try the See London By Night bus tour. The most popular daytime buses are the Original Bus Tour and Big Bus Tour.
