A creepy conductor provides the commentary for this sinister sightseeing show, revealing haunted places, unmarked burial grounds and the skeletons in the capitals closet. This ghost bus tour takes you around the City, West End and even south of the river in London. Parts of the tour include: Westminster Abbey, White Hall (where many royals were executed), The Tower of London (a place of murder and execution) and London Bridge (where there have been heads found on its spires!).

The action takes place at two fantastic locations, both set over water to add an extra element of excitement. The experience starts by you being weighed and then fitted into you full body harness.

Suspended in mid air, your heart is in your mouth as the jumpmaster shouts 3, 2, 1 bungee and then pulls the rip cord to send you hurtling into the air. Youll arrive back on your feet to terafirma. What a thrill!
