Ghosts, Gangsters & Gallows

Once called the ‘City of Gallows’ visitors of London had to pass a hanged man at every gate. We seek out ghosts, gangsters and the mystery of Jack the Ripper in this exciting tour of the country’s capital at the start of the New Year.

Begin your day at St James Park hearing the stories of crime and punishments, ministerial ghosts, spies and intrigues. In Parliament Square you’ll discover the best way to preserve a head on a spike and learn the dreadful fate of the man who tried to rob the Abbey treasury.

In the afternoon you’ll have the chance to explore via coach Sweeney Todd’s infamous Fleet Street to the East End of the Kray Twins. Then hear the story of Jack the Ripper, the personal stories of the victims in the Victorian Slums and perhaps enjoy a pint of ale at the Ten Bells where the Ripper victims drank.
