Your Ghost Hunt at The London Tombs

The London Bridge Experience and London Tombs can be one of the most terrifying places to spend the night in search of those who have lurked here for centuries. An overnight ghost hunt with the Haunted Happenings team deep under London Bridge can be a real test of nerve as we enter the endless foreboding tunnels that were once the plague pits of Old London Town.

You will get a taste of the harshness of London life which is very evident in this daunting location. During the day it is an experience where many leave screaming after being petrified by actors. However, at night, when everything is turned off the screams are louder. No actors are involved when people are touched by unseen hands and are fleeing from their investigation area after seeing images of human faces. Our ghost hunts here are always active and we have never left disappointed.

Ghosts of The London Tombs

Ghost hunts at The London Tombs have produced some of the most incredible activity we have ever witnessed with objects being moved by unseen hands, On October 31, 2007, before it opened, the BBC reported that a collection of skeletons unearthed in the crypt had scared builders so much that they refused to work there alone.

On our overnight ghost hunts we have experienced dragging and banging noises being heard and even ghostly apparitions being witnessed moving around the groups. People have fled the location and been too afraid to return to the vigils and even some of the staff are not prepared to venture into the building alone after the experiences they have had in the past.

Many of our guests have been quite frankly terrified at The London Tombs and cannot believe the activity that they have encountered here. The area near the haunted lift is particularly intense with bangs and shuffles being heard. If you are brave enough you can spend some time alone in any of the tunnels as long as you know what you are letting yourself in for.

History of The London Tombs

The London Bridge Experience is a tourist attraction located on Tooley Street, in vaults below the southern abutment of London Bridge, immediately outside London Bridge Station. It is also opposite The Shard. Guests are led by actors on a tour through the 'dark' moments of London's history, which include Queen Boudiccia's battles with the Romans, The Great Fire of London and a medieval run in with the Vikings. It explains the history of all the bridges that have been on the site, the first military style pontoon bridge built by the Romans, the first stone bridge built by Peter de Colechurch, the John Rennie Victorian bridge (which has now been relocated to Lake Havasu in Arizona), ending with the current modern bridge opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1971.

London Tombs, part of the London Bridge Experience, is a daytime scare attraction that's been voted the UK's best year round scare attraction for the last 4 years (2009-2012). It was discovered in 2007 when construction first began on the London Bridge experience attraction. Builders working on the excavation discovered a Plague Pit that contained a large collection of skeletons, unnerving the builders so much they refused to work down their alone. The bridge itself was also a scene of gruesome happenings.

In Tudor times they used to impale the heads of traitors and criminals on spikes along the bridge. In fact, some of the skulls that were found on the site actually had holes through them as if they were impaled. London during these times was certainly a very hard and cruel place to live, and this has left an imprint on the area, perhaps leading to the abundance of activity that is experienced?
