The Ghost Bus Tours

KidRated’s The Ghost Bus Tours Top Tips:

  • Go during winter for a darker and spookier tour
  • Don’t worry it’s more funny than scary
  • Try the London Dungeon, the London Bridge Experience and the Clink for more hair raising experiences

Do your kids love history and being scared out of their wits? Do they love hearing ghost stories and finding out horrifying facts? Then get your family on to take one of The Ghost Bus Tours.


Starting just off Trafalgar Square, the theatrical sightseeing tours take you around historic London. The guides will tell you all the horrible happenings and there are quite a few spooky surprises along the way.


The Tours take place on a 1960s Routemaster bus which has its own eerie backstory.


Extra tours take place around Halloween.


The Ghost Bus Tours can also be found in York and Edinburgh, two other UK cities with ghoulish histories.
