All aboard the ‘orrible omnibus for a ride around the dark side of London. The Ghost Bus Tours’ classic Routemaster has been redesigned to give passengers London’s first ‘Fright Bus’ service. On-board actors and technical trickery combine to create the scariest tour in town. A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted places, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capital’s cupboard.

We did this yesterday with our three children aged 15, 13 and 11. It was a very good giggle. Not to be taken too seriously. Some good story telling as another story unfolds on the bus with the actors. A few jumpy moments. We did...More

A series of dark, grisly tales, set the backdrop of London in the evening. The conductor is full of energy and keeps the tour going, despite the weird bus inspector that boards the bus and inspects the passengers... a single stop to visit "Crossbones" graveyard....More

I wanted history. I wanted Londons grusome history to be told. The bus itself was pretty cool. I thought the conductor tried to hard to get laughs out of people, there was a lot of acting and it seemed a bit silly to me. I...More

We used Tesco vouchers to get our tickets and no way would pay £21 for this I'd say it was informative and fun. Teenagers would probably like it. Actors tried hard to entertain and the bus itself was cool. Overall I would recomm

With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized
lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is

You can pre book a place (advisable), but I doubt it very much you can book a seat. They all seemed to be very friendly, so if you have any special requirements, I'm pretty sure they'll be accommodating. It's free t ask.
