Overview

All aboard the ‘orrible omnibus for a ride around the dark side of London. The Ghost Bus Tours’ classic Routemaster has been redesigned to give passengers London’s first ‘Fright Bus’ service. On-board actors and technical trickery combine to create the scariest tour in town. A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted places, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capital’s cupboard.

While walking around London, we saw a bus with "Ghost Bus Tours" all over the side. We thought it would be fun to try something different. I would recommend giving it a shot, but keep your expectations low. It was a low cost, fun whimsical...More

What a fun filled 90 minutes. For our sons 9th birthday, my husband and I took him and his two sisters aged 11 and 13 years on the Ghost Bus Tour of London. The black bus could have come straight from a Harry Potter movie....More

Step on board the night bus, my 2 teenagers were convinced it was the Harry Potter Night Bus. The decor inside is appropriately spooky and the bus conductor, shall we say, is not the norm. This is a really fun way to see London at...More

The staff were excellent, engaging and entertaining. The tour has some great stories, tours a good bit of the city and some highlight locations. Not really a scary tour if that's what you're looking for but worth the trip.

You can pre book a place (advisable), but I doubt it very much you can book a seat. They all seemed to be very friendly, so if you have any special requirements, I'm pretty sure they'll be accommodating. It's free t ask.
