MOST HAUNTED LIVE AND PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 2

In short, when it comes to haunted London tours, Richard Jones offers you an unrivalled degree of expertise, and no other ghost walk guide comes close to matching his specialist knowledge on the subject.
JOIN THE GUIDE WHO WROTE THE BOOK
The honest truth is that many ghost walk guides in London use Richard's books to get the information that they then relay to their groups on their tours.
But why would you want to be taken round haunted London by a guide who has read a book when you can actually join the guide who wrote the book?
When you join Richard's ghost walk, you are joining the source, the man who wrote the books and who knows more about haunted Britain and the paranormal than any other London walks guide.
A MASTERFUL STORY TELLER
But Richard doesn't just have the knowledge, he has the ability to put that knowledge across to his audience in a way that is gripping, entertaining and, at times, thoroughly spooky.
Ghost tours are different to other types of guided tour in that they require a guide who is a natural born storyteller if they are to be successful and enjoyable.
You don't want to be stuck with a guide who just drones on and on in a dull monotone about historical facts, and who injects no drama or humour into the commentary.
People who go on ghost walks want to be spooked and entertained, not be treated like they're on a school outing.
That is why when you join Richard's ghost walks you get a performance not a commentary.
His storytelling abilities will bring the streets through which you walk to vivid and spectral life, whilst the ghost stories that he regales you with will amaze, amuse, astonish, entertain and, at times, outright terrify you.
