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

The tour is in a bus while seated and it goes to places you don't hear about but are significant in London history. Of course, the theme is crimes or executions performed at these sites. An actor in the bus is telling the stories and guide us through the city. He was EXCELLENT. His role made the whole experience very... More

So disappointed with The Ghost Bus Tour!!!!! Really cannot understand how it has such excellent reviews. Very over-rated. The bus itself looks great, and the whole idea of a spooky tour around London was very appealing. So where did it all go wrong?? Well for one, the tour guide was just NOT funny. Toilet humour. Even the two people on... More

We had such a great time on the ghostbus, the staff/actors we're excellent and was great fun riding that old bus and seeing passersby faces as we went past. All in all a great way to see the sights with a lot of fun thrown in

Have to give an average score to this attraction. There are so many great stories to go by i London to create a ghost bus tour. Some of the stories told on the bus were good, but it all went a bit to fast. Some stories got a mention without making us wiser. We would rather have more stories on... More

I though the Ghost Bus tour was over-rated. The bus went a little too fast and depending on where one sat, it's easy to miss the sights altogether. The actors were a little wonky which gave a little laughter but overall, i think the tour is average.

We live in London and don't really appreciate the sites and tales of the city so we booked for Friday evening with not much of an idea of what to expect. What an enjoyable evening, good silly fun and have recommended the tour to friends.

My mum and I went on the trip on the 9pm trip and found it to be funny and entertaining. Don't expect to be scared witless and some of the stories are very short and more like passing comments when you drive past a place. However the actors on board are really fun. Me and my mum really enjoyed this... More

We went on the tour on Friday night, in a group of 4, all of us around the age of 30. The tour guide was attempting to be funny, but unfortunately fell way short of the mark, the comedy and acting was more appropriate for 10 year olds, but unfortunately the language they use probably means you wouldn't take anyone...

Booked a surprise for 13 of us. The Boyds Bar at the Grand Hotel also do a lovely cocktail for £5 pre-ghost tour by producing your ticket which was handy as the bus leaves just outside their door. The bus itself is beautifully done inside, and the actors where really great fun. Don;t go expecting a serious detailed ghost history... More
