Good book of true hauntings. Great maps to follow if you want to go on the walks.

Back Cover Blurb:
London has the reputation of being the most haunted capital city in the world. The dark recesses of the city's historic buildings, narrow streets and alleyways are said to be occupied by ghosts of many centuries and all walks of life. In Walking Haunted London, Richard Jones takes you on a spine-chilling journey through eerie and, in many cases, forgotten parts of the city and invites you to share -
This is a very entertaining and well informed set of haunted walks around London. It reads well even if you have no intention of going to London (like me). If you are going please take this book with you.

Recommends it for: anyone that likes books about the paranormal.
I absolutely loved this book! It has really good stories! Very descriptive, and the maps are great! I actually went on the Windsor haunted walk and had alot of fun! We didn't see any ghosts, but I swear I heard something near Windsor Castle gates. (The Grenadier Guard that haunts his old post maybe??)
25 great walks throughout London and suburbs. Lots of spooky activity with tips where to get refreshments or when to best do this or that walk. Great read for anyone interested in spectres and/or places with lots of history.
Essentially - and awesomely - 25 amazing pub crawls to the oldest most interesting London pubs. Must have in the travel kit! Ghosts? Meh.
Bought before I went to London. The stories in the book were very entertaining and the maps were decent. Overall very good.
