Tour description provided by Viator

Set off on a 2.5-hour spooky sightseeing tour of London by iconic London black cab. Driven by a private driver -- a master of storytelling with first-hand experience of the paranormal -- you’ll learn all about the ghosts of London who are doomed to spend eternity among the living. See top London attractions like Big Ben and Tower Bridge; hear tales of Percy the Poltergeist and Scratching Fanny; and see the places where Jack the Ripper met his victims.

Arriving in a traditional London black taxi, your private driver will collect you from your central London hotel, and then you’ll be on your way. Safe in the black cab’s comfortable seats, sit back and watch the spooky sights of London pass by as your driver gives you the lowdown on the capital’s ghosts and ghouls.On a route around central London, you’ll discover all the haunted parts of the city – both around well-known sights like Big Ben and the Tower of London, and around lesser-known darkened streets in neighborhoods like Mayfair, St James and Shoreditch.Visit the place where London’s infamous villain -- Jack the Ripper -- met his victims, and hear tales from your guide of ghostly apparitions, like Percy the Poltergeist who mysteriously appears at Burlington’s Arcade on London’s Piccadilly. Learn about the amusing 18th-century myth of Scratching Fanny, and the Phantom Landlord, who appeared to leer over his patrons in a city pub.Stop to walk around with your guide around intriguing dark alleyways, and learn about a very different London in the days of the Plague. Visit the building that is said to be Britain’s most haunted, and stop for a drink (included) in a 300-year-old pub – one that is ghostly of course.After 2.5 hours of exploring London’s darker side, your guide will drop you back off at your hotel – safe from the streets with their lurking lost souls!
