London Haunts and Horrors will travel from Pancras Station at 5:34pm to arrive for the tour at 6.15pm. Please arrive at the station at 5.15pm and meet in front of the destination boards to travel together. (If we get there at the same time, we can join up and buy a cheaper group ticket but this will depend on how many people are coming.)
We will arrive at St Albans railway station about 6pm. The tour starts at the Market Place clock tower shortly after this and finishes in the haunted White Hart Hotel, where we will have the opportunity for a drink, a bite to eat and hear about its haunted past from our tour guide.
PLEASE NOTE: Initially I included the train fare price in the ticket, but it became too awkward, so you now have to buy your own train ticket. If you get there at 5.15pm - we can hopefully purchase a group train ticket which will be about half the price of a full fare - about £4 each instead of £7 each.)
