Great Crime Tour Of London

It’d be absolutely criminal not to go…

Great Crime Tour of London

From the days of Roman rule through the Victorian era all the way to today’s urban jungle, London has always been one of the civilised world’s most famous cities; prosperous, rich… and ripe for the immoral amongst us to capitalise. Great Crime Tour Of London tour focuses upon the murders, misdemeanours and malevolent crimes that have taken place throughout London’s great (and bloody!) history.


From gangsters, robberies and jewellery thefts to art heists and political scandals by way of even more outlandish tales –  Princess Diana’s death and the bizarre conspiracy surrounding the Beatles (seriously, it has to be heard to be “believed”!) chief amongst these –  the Crime Tour is an absolutely enthralling and exciting walk around the city, bound to cause intrigue in even the most sceptical and seasoned of travellers. And you thought London was just full of palaces and posh people…


The tour starts under Hungerford Bridge in the Southbank and continues in the City which is the oldest part of London. Most of the tour takes place along the river Thames and the bright lights of the city reflected in the water at night will definitely add the spirit of adventure to this already high-spirited tour. The tour guide will stop near Tower Bridge, the Monument, Leadenhall Market and ITV Studios amongst others to share some stories that will reveal a new side of London to you.
