Jack the Ripper, Public Executions, Ghosts, everything’s happened in London over the years. The gruesome London tour will reveal all about the sordid underworld that’s been housed in London over the years.

Moving from East to Central London and Tower Hill sits overlooking the capital’s first prison – The Tower of London. Inside the Tower you’ll see the spot where many a nobleman – and even Anne Boleyn – lost their heads over the years. Step outside the confines of the Tower and onto Tower Hill and this is where those not of noble descent lost their heads. Thomas Cromwell took three blows to lose his on the Hill and George Boleyn lost his head here accused of adulterous incest with Anne.

Tyburn Tree, near where Marble Arch now stands, was the name given to the Gallows in the village of Tyburn where many London criminals and traitors were hanged. Oliver Cromwell was hanged here posthumously after the Restoration of the throne in 1661.

Being a city founded by the Romans and surviving through medieval times, London has it’s fair share of ghosts lurking too. The Chirton Grange gruesome London tour will take in dinner in one of the most haunted buildings in London, the Grenadier Pub while explaining why your hotel may be one of the haunted ones, before ghost hunting in and around some of the spookier spots in the capital.
