Boo Tours. We won't end each story with a smug little stinger about the likelihood of whether or not ghosts exist. We won't try and convert you to our rationalist, empiricist ways, but neither will we ask you to join hands and bring down the cone of light. Boo Tours don't really care if there's “anybody there,” and we never rap at tables.

We're in love with the most important aspect of going on a ghost tour: stories. Sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, often spooky (we hope) stories of the paranormal, natural justice and life after death. We love the strange histories and forbidden knowledge of the city of London (and the City of London) and we love telling other people: a history geek and an occult freak telling stories and walking off some calories on the way to the pub.

Anthony Lewis is a history buff, voice over artist , actor, graphic designer and lover of sharp suits. He is a qualified first aider with training in health and safety.

Jon Kaneko-James is a scholar-practitioner in Esoteric Studies with articles published on everything from Piety in Elizabethan Demonology to annoying magical inaccuracies in horror films, a writer of weird fiction (with a children's book out next year, so long as the Mayans were wrong,) a professional Tarot Reader and feels quite excited in the presence of Portland Limestone.

Both are experienced Tour Guides with a love of ghost stories and everything London. Ant and Jon met in 2005 while working at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, where their first conversation was about how they should do a ghost tour. They have been operating Boo Tours for two years now and have done tours for everything from Corporate Groups to the end of year festivities for the College of Psychic Studies


Tours run every week and can be booked online direct with Boo Tours. Please click here to see tours for this month.
