It will serve no mystery to your guests that the Tower of London has a sinister history of incarcerating hundreds of people.

The name alone screams danger… This grade II listed chapel was established in 1827 but got bombed in World War II.

This luxurious 5-star hotel may not appear to be the home of an eerie tale on the surface. However, turn off the grand chandelier lighting and five ghosts will be sure to join you. The most haunting are a German prince who jumped through one of the windows before the First World War and a man wearing Victorian evening wear, living in room 333. And… if your guests think they’ll be safe hiding in the basement, they’ll be in for some more spine-chilling company.
This grade I listed, West End theatre encompasses over 350 years of theatrical history, plenty to share a tale or two with your guests. However, rumour has it if you ever catch a whiff of lavender whilst watching a show, spirits like the Man in Grey or the ghost of Joseph Grimaldi may be present. Just ask the actors and stage directors who have braved backstage. And who knows what hidden secrets will unravel when this exquisite theatre re-opens in Autumn 2020…
No one quite does Halloween like the Dungeons themselves.

It’s not all glitz and glam seeing the stars in the “flesh”. Madame Tussauds holds a secret chamber of horrors that your guests can enter if they dare.
