If you are keen to join one of our tours and book a date in the future we will provide a full refund if you are unable to travel due to the coronavirus.

My thoughts are with you all at this difficult time,

Matt, Director of Fun London Tours.

Come on a journey into London’s raucous and perilous past, when fun came at a deadly cost, and Londoners lived truly on the edge.

On this sleazy and spirited tour, you’ll hear of the bizarre and debauched antics of our ancestors, notorious criminals and their executions, Covent Garden’s pimp master general and the London Beer Flood! (Yes, it really did happen…) Walking in the wake of drunkards, villains and sinful nobility, you’ll hear their tales of grime and the brutal punishments meted out to them.

Stepping through the heart of the West End, passing theatres, street performers and gorgeous architecture, this tour will leave you happy to be alive in twenty-first century London, but secretly wishing you were here a few hundred years before.

Please note, although we may mention one or two spirits, this is not a ghost tour!
