FILMS ABOUT LONDON'S HAUNTED HOTSPOTS
London has the reputation of being the world's most haunted Capital city. How could it be otherwise? The Tower of London alone, with its thousand year history of bloodshed and gore, is a veritable ghostly village in its own right. Many of London's pubs can boast a resident ghost or two. Haunted historic houses abound, whilst many offices stand on sites on which long ago acts of infamy have left an indelible stain on their ethereal fabric. Put all this together and you have a city that is teeming with spectral visitors.
And now you can visit some of London's most haunted places from the comfort of your own armchair, Smartphone or ipad.
Richard Jones, London's MaSter of the Macabre, has put together a series of entertaining videos that show the darker side of London's history.
So sit back, turn the lights down low, and prepare to be spooked and entertained in equal measure in this series of haunted London videos.
THE TALE OF THE CRIPPLEGATE GHOST

But what is the mysterious and disturbing something that lurks in its sinister depths?
In this short film Richard tells the story of the ghosts that haunt Bank Station and proffers an opinion of what long ago tragedy might lie behind the paranormal activity that is experienced here.
THE FIRES OF SMITHFIELD
The Hidden Horrors Friday night ghost walk visits the spot where Sir William Wallace Braveheart was executed on the 23rd August 1305.

In this video Richard Jones takes you to the site where the fires of Smithfield burnt bright and around the which the spectral ramifications of the executions are still heard.
