  • Travel on an iconic 1960s Routemaster bus
  • Choice of departure times adds flexibility
  • Enjoy onboard entertainment from your guide as your travel
What to Expect
Your tour begins in Trafalgar Square where you meet your guide and board the double-decker bus. As you travel through the city, listen as your ghoulishly entertaining guide reveals the dark history behind the famous sites you see along the way—the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, London Bridge, and more. Pass the Tower of London where many unfortunates met their end, and Westminster Abbey to hear about its ancient royal tombs. Throughout the tour, be chilled by tales of hauntings, disease, and such depraved characters as the barber-turned-butcher Sweeney Todd of Fleet Street. Your tour concludes back at the departure point.

We climbed onto the 1960’s Necrobus, decked out with gothic velvet curtains and little low light lamps with enormous excitement. Just riding around London at night on one of the original double decker buses put us in the mood for ghoulish stories about London Town. We had a

We wanted something Halloween-themed for half term for the family - given that everything else was off - and the Ghost Bus was a fun way of sight-seeing. Pick up and seat allocation was well organised and Covid-safe and the tour takes you around the West End and City, regaling

I was thrilled that the Ghost Bus tour was going ahead and it made a great Tier 2 friendly activity. We were spaced out on the bus and all wore masks so it felt very safe. The tour was an ideal balance of dark histories and terrible puns (in a good way). The host Taylor Woe
