Hampstead Heath Ghost Walk and Pub Crawl

  • Sep 8, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We had so much fun at this walk we're doing it again!

This is a self-led walk, not a professional one! The tour is picked from Walking Haunted London by Richard Jones and highlights the ghostly history of various locations around Hampstead Heath. Much of the walk is spent crossing Hampstead Heath, which can be lonely, desolate and, if the conditions are right, quite frightening. Highlights include the eerie overgrown pathways of St. John's Church, Jack Straw's castle, and a chance to unwind and seek out the ghosts at the splendid Spaniards Inn, once a haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin. The tour also features 4 haunted pubs, so we'll be stopping often for drinks.

This will be quite a walk!

We'll be covering 3.5 miles and some of the terrain can be a bit rough. Wear comfy shoes and be prepared for winding paths, weeds, and last time we even had to climb over a small fence! Definitely a workout. :)

We'll be meeting at the King William IV pub on Hampstead High Street and ending at the Flask Tavern (both within a few minutes of Hampstead tube station). The walk itself takes 2 hours and we'll have about 30 minutes in each pub. Food is served at a couple of the pubs and a break for sustenance may be needed. The more the merrier on this one, so please sign up and bring a friend. See you then!

    Great stuff with lots of great people attending. We visited four pubs and were amused, educated and entertained by Jon Randall with his impromptu guiding across the spooky Hampstead Heath area. I loved the cemetery in particular - great meetup :)

    Michele sent me a message and I can't work out how to respond to her personally, so here it is: The walk is to four different pubs - I don't think you will be allowed to bring your dog in there. It might be okay for walking along the heath but the pubs will be a different story. :)

    I'd REALLY like to do this, but have been plagued by ill-health recently and am still suffering from some symptoms. I might not know until the Fri or even the Sat if I can make it. How much notice do you need of numbers?

    • David S.

      Turn up on the day if you like, just RSVP so you get the emails and if you can't make it, I will understand. It's just a pub crawl with some ghost stories chucked in - so the numbers doesn't really matter :)
