Meet your guide at Londons Southbank, and set off at a leisurely pace to discover the sights and stories of Londons dark underworld. One of the most prosperous cities for centuries, London has also been home to some of the worlds greatest crimes, misdemeanors and political conspiracies committed by the higher echelons of society as well as common criminals.

Learn about Guy Fawkes and his 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament an event marked by the British on Bonfire Night and hear about the Great Fire of London of 1666 when ferocious flames swept through the City of London. Stand by the Monument to the Great Fire of London (known simply to Londoners as the Monument) and ponder the theories that still surround the event today: was it started after a bakery accident or was it an act of arson as conspiracy theorists like to believe?

Look out for city sights and attractions linked to several of the stories as you walk, passing Blackfriars Bridge, associated with mafia assassinations, as well as the OXO Tower, London Bridge, Shakespeares Globe Theatre, Millennium Bridge, Southwark Cathedral and more.

Hear about Londons most notorious art thefts as you pass the prestigious Tate Modern museum, listen to anecdotes about the hit man that mistakenly shot a dog, and prepare to be amazed by some of the more outlandish tales on the London streets. Is Paul McCartney the Paul McCartney of The Beatles fame or an imposter? Is the British government helping or controlling the lives of Londoners by Big Brotherstyle monitoring?

Besides the mysteries and speculation surrounding Princess Dianas death in 1997, discover little-known facts behind some of London's well-documented bank raids, jewelry heists and more. Then, after 2.5 hours exploring the Southbank and surrounding area, make your way back to Monument Tube Station where your tour finishes.

  • Even though it was pouring with rain this was an AWESOME tour. My only recommendation is the meeting place needs to be changed as it wasn't quite clear where to meet.

  • We were the only two on this particular tour and Allen was lovely. He walked us through Southbank and had some great stories. Great way to spend couple hours.

  • This was a really fun tour! It was our 1st nigh in London so with it being a short walking tour we got to see a little of London. Our Tour guide was great

  • Good tour. Not my favorite of the tours we booked, but interesting stories. My only suggestion would be for the guide to have some sort of sign for when the group is gathering. Would have made it easier to find him.

  • This tour was great. The guide, Ross, really knew what he was talking about (or at least made it sound like he did!) and had tons of interesting and unique stories. As an American, I was unfamiliar with nearly everything he told us about, which was excellent. I wish he'd gone into a little more detail on a few things just because I was completely unfamiliar (a lot of the stories were things that Londoners or Brits in general knew), but it's also understandable because I seemed to be the only one that didn't know. Fabulous tour, great guide, I'd totally recommend it to anyone visiting London.
