Wow... what an amazing experience, I enjoyed it as much as my 3 children. I have a 13yr, 10yr and 7yr old and all 3 were fully engaged. The tour was informative, funny and totally interactive. When we next visit, I will be booking other tours with this group. 5* would highly recommend!!!

Booked as a treat for a 9 year old Horrible Histories fans’ birthday. He said it was “amazing” and the grandparents had a great time too. The guides were fantastic, great at engaging everyone and both gruesome and interesting. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something a bit different to do with kids.

Thank you, Francis and Meg, for a really fun tour! Our 2 sons had a great time, and we all learned some interesting (and gruesome) facts about London’s past.

What an amazing morning spent with our two horrible histories hosts. They were funny and engaging, they were excellent with the kids and made sure to try and involve everyone, even the shier ones which I thought was a really great touch. their knowledge of the different areas was excellent and they had plenty of gore and horror to add spice to the colourful stories. Really worthwhile.

This was such a fun tour which combined theatrical elements and information about London's history seamlessly. It made the darker parts of London's history accessible to children in a fun way and had lots of opportunities for guests (especially kids) to interact. I would highly recommend, particularly for families!
