The Sweeney Todd Walking Tour for Two
Add to Basket
Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street is an urban London legend turned worldwide historical tale via books, stage plays and even musicals, but few people have seen where the myth originally came to life. On this Sweeney Todd Walking Tour for Two you’ll walk down the shadowy alley ways and buildings that gave rise to the legend, and hear more than a little folklore and history along the way.
You’ll visit the site of the notorious barber shop off Fleet Street where Sweeney Todd was alleged to have worked and Mrs. Lovett’s pie shop close by. Her pies were filled with mysterious meats for the unsuspecting (but willing) consumers. Your expert tour guide will tell you the tales of Sweeney selecting his victims, robbing them and getting rid of their remains with the help of Mrs. Lovett, and you’ll learn of other grisly and ghostly happenings in the surrounding area, from the 12th century temple associated with Jack the Ripper to the site where executed criminals would hang and where their heads would be displayed for days in the 17th century.
The story of Sweeney Todd is one that’s persisted for centuries. It may or may not be true, but you’ll be questioning your beliefs for days after you’ve been on this creepy horror walk that is sure to send shivers down your spine!
