Attraction details
Owner description: All aboard the ‘orrible omnibus for a ride around the dark side of London. 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.

A fun tour of The darker side of London. It was something different but true to the history of the great London past. The tour is at night so you also paid to see the beautiful city in the night. Expect a lot of laughs and screams!

I went with some friends for a birthday and we had no idea what to expect; it just sounded so cool and unique! We were pleasantly surprised at how much fun and entertaining the whole experience was. It was spooky but in a very comical way, which keeps you captivated for the entire ride. The actors were fantastic, really enjoyed... More

I didn't really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The bus is an old route master decorated with tables and dim lamps to create the atmosphere. The conducter was absolutely brilliant and had us laughing from start to finish. The tour was fun and it was nice to see London sights and learn a bit about events that... More

Booked this tour on the web without reading any reviews first. There was only 9 of us on the tour - all on the upper deck so it was quite spacious. The "guide / conductor" - I think his name was William Murray , sounded like Richard Hammond of Top Gear. He was extremely informative and certainly new his history.... More

I wrote a review on the Ghost bus tour website about my terrible experience with them, but weirdly enough, they didn't published it... I did the tour with my husband and my 2 teenagers niece and nephew. It started ok, as we were waiting in line among other people to get in the bus for about 10 minutes. Untill this... More

This was a spare of the moment thing. The ghost bus was parked outside our hotel every night so we just figured that we'd jump on it. We had thus far had a really great long weekend break in London and our daughter (8 years old) loved all of it. We didn't really need to do the ghost bus and... More

Went on this mainly to please my grand daughter who is 13. They take you on a tour of London pointing out all the gory bits. The two actors are really good and as well as the sound effects there are some comical moments. You end up having a seance but no one took it seriously. A pleasant way to... More

Had a ball on Saturday night on the ghost bus tour! As a group of friends we spend the first weekend in December every year in London within an itinerary of activities - decided to try something different this year and had a great laugh. The team on board the bus really play up to the character and the whole... More
