Went on a Haunted London Ghost Walk recently with London Walks the cost was £9 per person and the walk last around 2 hours. The walk was really good we heard how a lady buried in her wedding dress walked through the streets leaving fear in her wake. The unfortunate woman was not a ghost but had been buried in the mistaken belief she was dead. Luckily she had not been nailed in a coffin so was able to dig herself free but in the middle of the night in a wedding gown covered in mud she looked ever inch the ghost. Another story was of the ghost who came to his father every night saying his teeth were being stolen. Indeed when the father went to the grave it had been vandalised and the corpse teeth removed. Teeth were highly prized in a world when most peoples teeth were rotten and would have sold for a high price. Innocent looking buildings that housed terror in their basement from long forgotten cells and torture chambers were said to howl in the night. The leader of the group Peter was excellent and was extremely interested in London and its history. He pointed out blue plaques on the walls of some building which meant they were a place of interest. I have never even noticed these plaques before but there are loads in London apparently. The walk took use through the banking section of London which is quiet in the evening and added to the ghostly atmosphere. As it was very cold a couple of pubs we passed became welcome pit stops to our group. The walks start from various tube stations and ours started at 7.30pm from Monument Tube Station. The people in the group were a mixed bunch of tourists some from France and America. We all really enjoyed the walk and I am now planning another and can`t wait. They do make you shiver with fright though so be warned.

They have intriguing names like `Ghosts, Gaslight and Guiness` `The City of the Gallows` `Jack the Ripper` and numerous other walks that are not ghost walks. Walks go on daily morning afternoon and evenings so there is something for everyone.

    Sounds scary, but I like to try it out. I like scary talk or tour. Enjoyed the ghost house at Disneyland many years ago.
