What we’re about


I'm Declan McHugh, your Guide for 'Serial Killers: The Blood & Tears Walk' - a 2 hour London Walk about the psychology & behaviour of TEN London-connected Serial Killers.

In the last 23 years I've performed this Tour to over 60,000 people & the Tour currently has 858 Five-star reviews on TripAdvisor (5.12.23).

I use immersive story-telling, plus a photo book and people seem to like what I do.

During November and until 2023's last Tour on Thursday 21.12.23, the Tour is taking place on Thursday & Friday nights only at 7-9pm, meeting right outside Barbican underground station's only exit at 7pm.

Then I'm on holiday.


From Wednesday 3rd January 2024, the normal schedule resumes, which is Wednesday, Thursday & Friday nights from 7-9pm, meeting right outside Barbican underground station's only exit.

NB - EVERYONE HAS TO PRE-BOOK, since I don't go to the station unless there are bookings.

Jack the Ripper inevitably features - but I also deal with NINE other serial killers, to compare mindsets and behaviours: the most comprehensive collection of Serial Killers on ANY London Walk.

I have both a research and an acting background, so the Tour is both information-rich, but conducted in a memorable, absorbing way.

I specialise in cinematic story-telling with an immersive atmosphere.

It's important to me that people understand that this Tour has an ethos. I do NOT glorify/admire/worship serial killers. I have studied their psychology for 35 years, so there are profiling exercises and I talk about M.O, etc. The material is grim, but if you want to wallow in gore, you'll be disappointed. I never forget the victims.

This Tour is for thinking adults. 'SERIAL KILLERS - SERIOUSLY'.

I wrote 'Bloody London' which has more than 9,200 sales, has 145 5-star reviews on Amazon, and has been reprinted four times.

The book features 16 London serial killers, and much much more from London's dark history. The book is 85% different from the Tour. If you're interested, I show it at the end of the Tour and you can have your signed copy for £10, either £ cash or PayPal.

So come along, either by yourself or with a friend or two. You'll be made very welcome. I am friendly, connect with people, and it's my mission to make the tour absorbing and immersive. Every time.

I've saved the best for last: the price of the Tour is normally £15 for adults (15+) and £10 for children (12-14).

However, for people in my Meet-up Group it's only £13 for adults and £8 for children who MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF 12.


That is an excellent price for this rave-reviewed London Tour.

Even better, the November and December 2023 walks are ONLY £10 (!!),because it's obviously cold and can be rainy.

See you soon. I'm looking forward to it...
