Overview

London's long history of head-lopping monarchs, bloodcurdling murders, plagues, famines and fires, has given us some pretty unhappy spooks about the place. Some are headless, some humourless - all are lifeless! Find out what sticky ends these people met and where they hang out. So keep up your spirits when you discover: The phantom frozen chicken of Highgate; How Dr Samuel Johnson (the clever clogs who compiled the first English dictionary) was employed as a ghostbuster; Where you can find London's most haunted house; The true identity of the phantom Black Nun of the Bank of England; London's hottest headless ghouls; How to kit yourself out as a ghost-hunter; London's friendliest ghost; The curse of the British Museum mummy. If you survive these and many more chilling tales of ghostly London, then look at the section at the back, where you'll find some ghoulish places to visit!
