About
Come on a journey into London's raucous and perilous past, when fun came at a deadly cost, and the dead had the most fun. On this sleazy and spirited 1.5 hour walking tour, you'll hear of London's strangest disaster, the club which dined with coffins on their tables, and the stories of executions and master criminals. Stepping through the heart of the West End, passing theatres, street performers and gorgeous architecture this tour will leave you happy to be alive in twenty first century London, but secretly wishing you were here a few hundred years before!

I was looking for a not yet again touristy tour of London. The tour guide was on time and knowledgeable. Mainly the tour was fun, witty and not too long. Just loved it and laughed a lot.

Really fun tour
My girlfriend booked this tour and I wasn’t expecting much, but I had a great time hearing about the seedier parts of London, and the tour guide Jess was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed hearing him passionately talk about London.

Cool and interesting information
May 2018 • Friends
Jess was a great host who provided an insight into the grime and punishment that was in London. We were fortunate to have a training guide and a forensic scientist, plus others that knew history to add extra information to Jess's talk. We went over the time allocated but it was a great tour. I would recommend to anyone with an interest in London's past.

Great tour with Jess, a very knowledgeable guide
Brilliant tour which is also historically accurate. I had to check the odd thing as it sounded unreal but was actually true like the beer flood also full of humour throughout.
A great way to find out a bit more about some of the areas of London which are a bit more hidden from the usual tourist route.

Feb 2018 • Friends
A friend visiting from Canada and I (also Canadian but long-time London resident) did the tour on 11th Feb. It was a very cold day but the tour, lead by Jess, was excellent and we both really enjoyed it and learned many interesting facts about this area of London. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour with Jess!
Despite the snow on Sunday, our tour still went ahead and Jess did not let it dampen his spirits, he was a brilliant guide and we really enjoyed the tour! We were the only ones on the tour and were given the option to cancel a couple of days before but due to us travelling from Shropshire we wanted to go ahead which wasn’t an issue, and I’m so glad we didn’t cancel even with the snow. The stories were really interesting and we got to see another side of London, we have previously done the Secret London tour with Matt and returning to the same tour company did not disappoint, we will be doing more tours with Fun London tours.
