London is a magical city, but it also has more spooky places than you can shake a sage stick at.
Horror, tragedy, and mystery: London’s seen it all over the last 2,000 years. All of this activity has left an utterly eerie atmosphere in some corners of the city where strange goings-on are a part of everyday life. From the magnificent to the mundane, it’s difficult to find a public building or attraction that isn’t haunted. Even London’s open spaces reverberate with urban legends and the echoes of ghostly horsemen, plague victims, and past executions. Some places are so notorious that you’ll expect a tell-tale chill in the air, but sometimes you’ll chance upon a seemingly pleasant area and your spine will inexplicably tingle.
