Additional Information

Unearth the sinister past of London. Discover renowned landmarks and secret treasures accompanied by your captivating guide in this unconventional stroll.

Are you set to dive into historical facts? Are you eager to be fully captivated?

Your robed witch-sherpa will bewitch you in this voyage back in time. Listen attentively to accounts of the unforeseen, narrations about actual witches of London & the severe misfortunes they endured. Skim the stone pavement as you unearth the facts about Joan Peterson, the so-called ‘Witch of Wapping’. Innocent or guilty? You be the judge. What’s the story behind Jinny Bingham, was the epithet “Mother Damnable” justified…? and who was the genuine “Last Witch”?

In a tour that amalgamates history, mysticism, and a notion that there are lessons to be learned from our ancestors, you are bound to be smitten by this historical region of the town, its concealed treasures, and its engrossing (occasionally chilling) past.

You may even find yourself in some infamous movie spots from Harry Potter on your journey!

Entertaining Walking Tour - After being telephoned by the guide and directed down a secret (and very steep) staircase, we were met by a very cheerful and charismatic witch... An excellent and informative tour around the dark streets of London. Highly recommended.

An amazingly good time walking around London and learning about the history of witchcraft in England! - Amazing experience fuelled by Tally's (our tour guide) inherent enthusiasm and knowledge about the topic of witchcraft in England. She genuinely elevated this experience for the kids with her innate quirkiness and vibrant sense of humour. The experience was all on her shoulders and she delivered in spades. Thank you for a great time, highly recommended to all!
