TOUR DURATION: 3hrs (Approx.)
Exploring London’s hidden murky depths that were at times the most horrible, despicable and cruel in its history. Murder! Murder! Murders Afoot – and London has had its considerable share!
Some notable murders include the Acid bath murderer John George Haigh, and then there’s the notorious John Reginald Halliday Christie – known as the Notting Hill Strangler. His method was to suggest to females that he could cure them of their ailments, and once he had lured them back to his house he would give them a drugged drink – when this took hold Christie would use domestic gas to kill them. But let’s not reveal too much! There are many more murders and stories to be told on this tour.
We also include London’s famous hangmen such as William Marwood, the inventor of the long drop. Albert Pierrepoint was considered to be the master of hangmen, and was certainly the most efficient of executioners. Condemned men could be taken from their cell to being hanged in 7 seconds, though the usual time was 13 seconds – the swiftest of dispatches! The early Victorians were prolific builders and in their haste to rebuild London they destroyed many old buildings, often without commemorating their history. Take the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, known to the world as the Bank of England: on this site stood a very famous church, and the bank is haunted to this very day. We explore many similar aspects of London and look forward to seeing you on this tour.
