Hangings and hauntings in EC2

Halloween is nearly upon us, but this year, it’s not just for kids. If you genuinely feel like freaking the bejesus out of yourselves, we’ve got the perfect event for you.

The Museum of London walking tours are ahead of the game; on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 October, from 6-8pm, they’ll be hosting Hangings and Hauntings – a twilight saunter through the darker side of London, with tales of churchyard murders, public executions and body snatchers.

The tour will take intrepid walkers down dark alleys, into hidden squares and gruesome graveyards where stories of the Capital’s ghoulish secrets will unfold. Expect to learn where a Scots patriot was executed more than 700 years ago, and locate a ghostly monk who still haunts his church.

The organisers have called it ‘spine-tingling’, so it’s definitely not one for children. And the event is proving popular too, so make sure you book in advance. The walk will start at the Museum of London in EC2.
