The Ghost Bus Tours’ classic Routemaster has been redesigned to give passengers London’s first ‘Fright Bus’ service. On-board actors and technical trickery combine to create the scariest tour in town. A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted places, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capital’s cupboard. « less

Guess it all depends on your expectations but for us we found the tour to be entertaining and given we really didn't expect to "see a ghost", had a good time. It is more a theatrical tour than anything however you do drive through areas that have had a somewhat "bloody" history. All of the players got into their characters... More

Never done this before. After a beer at the Sherlock Holmes ( which was the hilite of the evening) a nice ride around with two entertaining actors. Like Sam Johnson says. " when a man..." So, see if there are other interesting things you want to do, then weigh your options.

The whole ghost bus tour was a great experience.The staff worked really hard to make to make it memorable.The bus conductor was especially good and she managed to tell the ghost stories in an interesting way.I think teenagers would like this tour,it had a few spooky moments as well as lots of humour.I recommend getting there half an hour earlier...

I'll preface this by saying that I find campy ghost stuff like this absolutely hilarious! I do love these kind of tours - they're a great way to kill an evening and see the city at night. The main tour guide was great - he used humor that both kids and adults could enjoy but with innuendos in there that... More

We've been on many ghost tours and always look forward to interesting stories with a little local history mixed in. This tour was very campy and not really scary. Too much comedy, not enough horror. The tour guide was more of an actor than a story teller. Some of the bus windows were a little dirty, and it was difficult... More

Having seen this attraction two years ago, I was keen to have a go. This September proved the perfect opportunity. Having a good sense of humour I was expecting it to be a laugh and also looked at their website which seemed pretty funny and entertaining so was looking forward to going on it for a laugh. I had a... More

We made a trip into London specifically for the ghost bus tour. Not able to find the bus stop, we missed the first tour by 12 minutes. The bus stop poster said there were no more tours that day ( a Thursday) a quick check online said there was another tour. So rather than waste the day we waited and... More
