    Stop At: Sundial at the Tower Hill Underground Station, Tower Hill, St Katharine's & Wapping, London EC3N 4DR, UK

    Meet your guide by the Sundial, outside Tower Hill Station.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Tower of London, Tower Hill, London EC3N 4AB England

    Explore the Tower of London, believed to be the most haunted building in the City. Learn about the stories of those who where imprisoned and executed in the Tower.

    As we retrace the trail of the notorious Jack the Ripper murders, we get a taste for a new breed of soul harvester born of the Victorian age, the world’s first psychiatric hospital, plague pits, the Bloody Tower and Traitor’s Gate and several notoriously haunted areas of the East End. You will also see the emblematic Spitafields Market and Brick Lane and will hear the stories of London's most haunted building - the Tower of London.

    In a city so full of light and beauty, this walk will show us the darkness waiting behind every corner.

    Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes
