Five Spooky #London Locations For #Halloween


We're going Halloween mad this weekend on our London Walks… but if you are unable to join us, here are five ghostly locations to explore under your own steam…











Central: 50 Berkeley Square W1

A spirit in the attic at no.50 is said to have driven at least two people to suicide…





…Andy covers this story and location in The London Walks Halloween Podcast…






South: Nunhead Cemetery SE15


The spookiest and most atmospheric of all the so-called Great Seven Victorian cemeteries.




North: The Spaniards Inn, Hampstead NW3



Britain's most haunted pub? Ghosts of 16th Century landlord Juan Perero and highwayman Dick Turpin have been sighted - the pub is mentioned in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.


West: Hampton Court Palace


Haunted by the ghosts of both Catherine Howard and Jayne Seymour, wives of King Henry VIII.


East: Bethnal Green Tube E2


Late at night one can hear the sound of children sobbing and women screaming. Ghosts from the wartime tragedy of 1943 in which 143 people were killed?






A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
