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 spine-tingling tales about Charles I's execution, the deaths on Tower Hill, and where they stuck the heads of traitors on the City gates.

You should also expect a few surprises onboard the bus (note: it used to be a funeral bus!) So don't be surprised if the dead come along for the ride.

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

If you're one of those mad people who enjoy horror, then you might like to check out our page of Halloween events in London.
