The Tower of London

The Tower of London

The Tower of London is one of London's spookiest buildings, with a grim history of imprisonments and executions. The Tower is said to be haunted by the headless ghost of Henry VIII's second wife, Anne Boleyn, who was beheaded there in 1536. It was here that Guy Fawkes was tortured for his part in the foiled Gunpowder Plot of 1605. "Ambrose Rookwoode", the name of one of Fawkes' co-conspirators, can still be seen scratched into one of the cell walls inside the tower, along with many others.

Trace the steps of the infamous and chilling 19th century serial killer, in the city's East End. Many of the pubs in the area, which were operating at the time the Ripper was active (and it's thought he may have met his victims at), including The Ten Bells, are still open today.

The Clink Prison Museum

The Clink Prison Museum

Dating back to 1144, The Clink was the most notorious medieval prison in London and is the oldest prison in Britain (although luckily for visitors, it no longer holds any prisoners). You can learn about its raucous, unruly and wicked former inhabitants, from debtors, harlots and heretics, to drunkards and even religious adversaries. See genuine archaeological artefacts and handle old-style torture devices that would have been used to torment and punish.
