  • Discover the location of the Legendary Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd
  • Visit the church built by the mysterious Knights Templar
  • Come face to face with a Ghost Station
  • Look through the window into London's 'Roman Bath'
  • See shrapnel damage from WW2
Full description
The tour begins outside one of central London's quietest underground stations, Temple. From here your guide will take you along side streets far away from the tourist trail and point out curious sights, including an old Cabman's shelter, built for taxi drivers at a time when they needed shelter from the rain, a so-called Roman Bath (which has a questionable past) and on to one of London's oxblood red Ghost stations, Aldwych.  In a tour full of weird and wonderful tales of tradition, folklore and ceremony, you'll stand beside one of London's lost rivers, head over to the City's most romantic church, soak up the atmosphere of an area once used by the legendary Knights Templar, then finish the walk off by going in search of the most notorious barber of them all, Sweeney Todd!

The perfect way to discover more of London's hidden gems! Especially with Matt as your guide! You'll find out where Lionel Richie might serve you a cup of tea, how a great business plan came about involving Roman baths that (spoiler alert!) aren't actually Roman, or the story of Fleet Street's rude parrot. And so much more! A perfect mix of interesting stories and brilliant British humour. I recommend it with all ten!

My sister and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide Rachel was lovely and was able to make the tour not only interesting bur also fun. We would definitely recommend this tour and will book other tours of this company once we‘re in London again.

An excellent tour. The guide was well-informed and had photos and pictures to illustrate the places we stopped at. The walk was a good pace and he ensured no one was left behind. His information was interesting and we could hear him - even above traffic noise. Some of the locations were off the beaten track and tricky to find without a guide. I would recommend this tour. It was very interesting.
