London Tombs, part of the London Bridge Experience, is a daytime scare attraction that’s been voted ‘the UK’s best year-round scare attraction’ for the last 4 years (2009-2012). It was discovered in 2007 when construction first began on the London Bridge experience attraction. Builders working on the excavation discovered a Plague Pit that contained a large collection of skeletons, unnerving the builders so much they refused to work down their alone. The bridge itself was also a scene of gruesome happenings. In Tudor times they used to impale the heads of traitors and criminals on spikes along the bridge. In fact, some of the skulls that were found on the site actually had holes through them as if they were impaled.
London during these times was certainly a very hard and cruel place to live, and this has left an imprint on the area, perhaps leading to the abundance of activity that is experienced?
Ghost Hunts at London Tombs
Regarded by many as an extremely haunted location, the London Tombs certainly has its fair share of paranormal goings-on. Once the day has ended and the staff have left, the real ghosts come out, walking the corridors and the rooms.
Staff have refused to work alone for fear of coming face to face with one of the spirits, as has happened previously. A dark shadowy figure has been seen by staff on several occasions and has also been known to actually interact with them.
Groups on an investigation have witnessed a lady who they believed to be an actor staying behind after her shift. However, upon investigation, there was no woman working that day. The lady is known as Emily to the staff and has been witnessed a number of times.
Ghost hunts have also witnessed poltergeist activity, with objects being moved from unseen hands. Loud bangs and dragging noises are often heard. Several people have also reported ghostly apparitions moving around between the groups.
People have been known to run out of the location due to sheer terror. The reports in addition to the very disturbing atmosphere at this location make it one not for the faint of heart.
