Travel back in time on a vintage open-topped double-decker bus, and walk through an empty Smithfield market, home to the cock-lane Ghost. Then retrace the murders of Jack the Ripper, before heading to the safety of the Sherlock Holmes pub. Hear tales of the legends buried at Westminster Abbey and see the banqueting house where Charles I was beheaded, a relatively common punishment for crime at the time. Your expert guide will explain how the executioners, who worked regularly in front of large crowds at Tower Hill which we will also see, would often raise the severed head showing it off to the crowd. You will then travel to the Old Bailey, the site of numerous public hangings, the Royal London Hospital where the Elephant Man lived, and hear tales of Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop with her special fillings, the butcherous barber who lived next door, gangland warfare, great train robbers and more.
