Richard was a very good guide, theatrical, knowledgeable, and the content was interesting... but the atmosphere just wasn't right. I was bright and sunny out, there was a bicycle race going on... just not the right mood for a ghost walk. It improved near the end of the tour as it began to get dark and the city started to settle. I think these tours should start later in the evening in the spring / summer.

Richard Jone's Walking Ghost Tour was phenomenal!. We went on the Tuesday Night walking tour starting at St Paul's Cathedral. My 8 year old daughter was enthralled by Richard's ability to tell a story and his knowledge and enthusiasm for British History was evident. We learned more in a 1 hour and 45 minute tour about Old London that we got the rest of the week on commercial London tours. There was something for everyone of any age. We highly recommend taking one of his tours!

We did Richards London discovery walk and had a really enjoyable time discovering parts and views of London we did not know existed. Richards commentary was informative and entertaining. It has wetted our appetite to do another one when we are next in London. A very enjoyable 2 hours

My partner and I took one of Richard Jones' ghost walks around London and found it to be totally captivating. We were taken around central London to some remarkably historically significant places which could speak for themselves, but they didn't have to as Richard uses a sense of theatre to convey to great effect; this could be overdone by lesser walk guides, but Richard strikes a good balance of fact and vaudeville. All in all some great history and some spooky ghost stories, and an hour and a half which seemed to fly by in ten minutes. Full marks.
