London Haunted Pub Tour

On 30th December, to celebrate Halloween, I took a group of bloggers on a Haunted London Pub Tour on behalf of Best London Walks and Lantern Ghost Tours to discover London's haunted past and have a couple of drinks in some supposedly ghost filled pubs.

I'll try not to spoil the tour just in case you give a go yourself but we heard tales of Sweeny Todd the Fleet Street Barber and visited Mrs Lovett's Lair, heard a spooky story about Spencer Perceval's death (the only Prime Minister to ever be assassinated), before heading over to the famous Cheshire Cheese a regular watering hole for Charles Dickens, Oliver Goldsmith, Mark Twain, Alfred Tennyson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, P. G. Wodehouse and Dr. Samuel Johnson. 

 The tour ended up near Dr. Samuel Johnson's former house. In the courtyard outside the house, stands a very famous statue of Dr. Johnson's dictionary with his cat perched on top and a famous quote from the writer, which also happens to be my favourite quote ever!

"Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford"

A quote which you may have seen on my blog many times!!

The tour lasted for about 2 hours, and we got to visit 3 stunning pubs along the way. I liked that most of the stories were relatively short as it kept everyone's attention but I was expecting more stories and to be more scared! Maybe I'm expecting too much! 

However, we had a great night, with a fabulous bunch of bloggers. It was so good to see lots of new faces at our events too. Thank you to everyone who came!

Overall, I'd definitely recommend a London pub tour so let me know if you end up booking one!

Love Lauren xx
