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??)

An excellent book of carefully thought out walks taking in haunted parts of London.

Plenty of interesting background information.

Highly recommended. A friend of mine also has the book and has done some of the walks. The times estimated for walk durations are fairly accurate.

A 4.5 star book which I upgraded to 5 stars on the basis of the Phantom Chicken of Pond Square, Highgate.

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.

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.
