Discover some of the more extraordinary myths and legends of Old London Town in a walk which takes in the hidden courtyards and pathways near Fleet Street. You'll be looking into grills, peering through windows and high up on walls!
What to Expect
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!
