The Bloody, Awful Pub Walk ©
Creeping around the most haunted city in the world!

Murderers and martyrs, ghosts and gore, revolutions, executions, graverobbers and poltergeists … need we say more? Disgusting, terrifying and repulsive, and that’s not just the guide! This walk is definitely not for the faint-hearted!


Walk lasts: about 2 1/2 hours – with recovery stops at some absolutely dreadful pubs.

Season: The Bloody, Awful Pub Walk happens from September to March, when the evenings are long and the City is at its darkest. In fair or, even better, foul weather!

Your guide: Karen Chester is a fully trained and registered City of London Guide Lecturer, and will be wearing the prestigious City Badge.


Big Smoke Walks take place whatever the weather. Big Smoke reserves the right to limit numbers.
