'Blood & Tears Walk' - chilling and informative two hour London Horror tour

Hundreds of 5 star reviews!

The first hour of this two hour tour is informative, thought-provoking material about execution sites, grave-robbers, etc.

However, the Tour is a 12+ certificate for a reason (ONLY people aged 12 and over are allowed to come), which is that the second hour contains chilling and disturbing stories, mainly connected to London serial killers. Jack the Ripper has a section - but other London serial killers are present too. 

If you book the 'Tour plus Book' option, you receive a personally signed copy of Declan McHugh's best-selling 'Bloody London' book, featuring grim deeds that have occurred in London's history. 80% of the book material does not feature on the Tour! Essentially Book and Tour are two different products.  The Book has sold 7,800 copies by February 2020, and has excellent Amazon reviews. The Book, like the Tour, has a 12+ certificate.

What Should I Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: WIlliam Wallace Memorial, St. Bartholomew's Hospital W Smithfield, London EC1A 9DS England

See the large monument, hear the grisly story of William Wallace's execution. Plus why Mel Gibson was not ideal for this part...

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: St. Sepulchre Without Newgate Church, Holborn Viaduct Next to the Old Bailey, London EC1A 2DQ England

The sinister economics of dead babies....Clue: St Bartholomew's Hospital is around the corner...

Duration: 6 minutes

Stop At: Old Bailey, London EC4M 7EH England

The Central Criminal Court. Learn about serial killers who have had their trials here and learn the brutal lesson of this Tour. Also listen to an enactment of the world's most daring, seemingly impossible, escape from Newgate prison, a hulking windowless prison which was right here...

Duration: 12 minutes

Stop At: Holborn Viaduct, Holborn street, London EC1A England

Why Farringdon Street is NOT an ordinary street...

Duration: 3 minutes

Stop At: Printer Street, Printer St, Holborn, London EC4A, UK

Vote on the scariest horror movies of all time. Declan reveals the 'Top Ten' votes from 20 years of 'The Blood and Tears Walk', including a film in the 'Top Ten' most of you simply do not know. Also Declan's personal recommendation for a horror film, a film even fewer of you have seen...

Duration: 6 minutes

Stop At: Crane Court, Crane Ct, Holborn, London, UK

An extremely creepy individual who used to live round here and what he had in his window. Plus a little psychological game Declan invented called 'Possibilities'. Plus two jaw-dropping statistics on serial killers which you do not know and which may permanently change the way you look at the world..PLUS the one thing you must never ever do in your life...

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Red Lion Court, Red Lion Ct, Holborn, London, UK

Hear a dramatic account of a little known Victorian transatlantic serial killer who lived round here. This true-life story, with a number of twists, would be a perfect for a Movie, and yet the Movie has never been made. The story ends with a question, based on what you have just heard, which very few can get right...

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Hare Place, Hare Pl, Holborn, London EC4Y 1BJ, UK

It's Jack the Ripper time...visit the place where my Jack the Ripper suspect lived, just off Fleet Street, and hear a detailed account of precisely why I think this man was Jack the Ripper. Let's see how good you are at profiling. Also In this Jack the Ripper section of the tour is the toughest question of the entire tour. Get this question right and you are on the 'Roll of Honour' of 'The Blood and Tears Walk'. Only one person in every 1,500 people who attend the Tour can get this question right!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: St. Dunstan In The West, 186A Fleet Street, London EC4A 2HR England

The narrow alley we enter here just may be the creepiest place you have been to in your entire life. We conduct a psychic experiment here - it's a murder scene - and you hear about a pair of devious serial killers who operated around here. If you are psychic you will NOT like this place. I have had tough men be shaken by the atmosphere in here.

Duration: 12 minutes

Stop At: 194 Fleet St, Holborn, London EC4A 2LT, UK

Hear an excessively bizarre conspiracy theory, by a very strange and controversial writer, about the Dragon Monument where Fleet Street meets The Strand. Apparently all is not as it seems....

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: The Royal College of Surgeons of England, 35-43 Lincoln's Inn Fields, Holborn, London WC2A 3PE, UK

Hear about three tragic but very special people who stood out and whose remains are all on display at a quite amazing, but little known, Collection here. The collection is FREE but closed until 2021. But if you came on 'The Blood and Tears Walk' then you want to know about this collection, so you can go there when it reopens.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Lincoln's Inn Fields, London England

Witchcraft....an amazing but little-known real life Magician, who was called here to tackle evil, and his connection with James Bond....

Duration: 6 minutes

Stop At: Princess Louise, Wc1 208 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EP England

We end at the wonderful Princess Louise pub, famous for its wonderful Victorian decor. But after the final serial killer story of the Tour, you may hesitate to enter this pub!

After this final story, Declan will sign a copy of his best-selling book - 'Bloody London'- for you for just £7. The shops sell 'Bloody London' for the same price, but Declan's signature on the book - only obtainable if you have done the Tour - makes it collectable...

Duration: 10 minutes
