An immersive, character led journey through London’s horrible history. Plenty of scares mixed with an educational side.

Established by William the Conqueror in 1066 to ward off hostile Londoners, The Tower of London has a history drenched in blood. Royal disappearances, beheadings, the torture of Guy Fawkes and a brief stay for the Kray Twins, if those walls could talk, they’d scream!
