We had a fantastic time on the London Ghost Walk. Richard was a brilliant storyteller and guide, giving fascinating historical insights and numerous ghostly anecdotes. Just as impressively, he made sure people remained in their household bubbles throughout to ensure social distancing during the walk, as well as wearing a mask to talk when we were in more narrow alleyways. One of the best walking tours we've been on, would highly recommend!

Our guide was Philip and he was extraordinary. 29 years of research on Jack the Ripper as well as being an accomplished actor, Philip (with one “L”), made it come alive, with scary stories, photos, and a performance to revival any West-end show! I highly recommend Philip... wait to book his tour!

We had a great experience with the "Alleyways and Shadows Ghost walk" yesterday evening. He certainly knows his stuff, and was able also to point out a number of free museums and attractions that my son (who lives here) is interested in checking out. We didn't have any paranormal experiences as a group, but great fun was had by all. The only problem we had was getting there - the tube line we needed to access was shut down for the weekend, and we ended up in a very long cab ride (44 pounds!!!!) to get there in time for the walk's starting. The emergency phone number was useless - she told us to do what we could to get there - as if we hadn't figured that out ourselves!)

I am a London resident and have previously done a Jack the Ripper Tour and ghost walk in the Aldgate/Shoreditch area. I really enjoyed Richard's tour, seeing parts of Bank that I had never seen before, in particular the many alleyways with tucked away cemeteries and pubs. For an hour and 45 minutes I thought it was great value for money and really enjoyed Richard's story telling style and variety of stories. He also gave us a great tip to take the lift up to a rooftop bar in the New Change shopping centre where you can get a great view of St Paul's Cathedral. I would definitely go on another of his tours.

We met outside Bank Station....and from the start of the tour it was interactive with questions being asked as well as being informed about the various historical stories, including the plague pits, Fire of London, amphitheatre of London etc. Great value for money at only £10 per person.... Really interesting and entertaining tour with Richard, who also added into the tour lots of tips of places to also visit and their opening times and he was really knowledgeable as well. Saw lots of places that we will revisit and tour lasted just under 2 hours. Very good value for money and we all really enjoyed it - highly recommend. His last tip was to go to the viewing platform to view St. Paul's Cathedral at One New Exchange Square which we did and despite the rain we had a fabulous view across London. I will be following up on his other tips when the weather is better as it was a really rainy night!
