Bleeding Hearts and Body Parts London Walk

Time to take your rose tinted history specs off....

It’s hardly surprising with its length of history that London is one of the spookiest cities in Europe. This is a 90 minute guided walk filled with martyrs and murders, poltergeists, a 900 year old prison, grave robbers & executions. Learn where we get the phrase "pulling your leg!" and "one for the road".

Take in the sights of: Smithfield Market, St Barts Hospital, St Bart's Church, Cloth Fair, King Henry VIII's Gate, where Christian and Protestant and Catholic martyrs were murdered in a variety of ways, a Watch House built to prevent body snatchers and the last remaining Gin Palace in the City of London.
