The British love their comedy horror and they also boast the unique Ghost Bus Tours. It is Britain's only comedy-horror theatre sightseeing experience on wheels. Dubbed the Necrobus ("necro" meaning "dead"), it has been exciting passengers with daily haunted tours of London, Edinburgh, and York (the Old York if you will).

The Ghost Bus Tour's fleet of buses is comprised of classic 1960's Routemaster buses. But gone is their iconic London red livery. Now they have been restored and coated in their signature 'midnight-black' livery and then furnished with antique lamps and plush red velvet curtains. They are the perfect setting for a hilarious horror comedy on wheels.

About The Tours

The tour guides are all classically trained actors. As one speeds along their way, they will see the city's top attractions in style all the while being immersed in a real theater show performance. They are offered in three of the United Kingdom's most historic and spooky cities - London, York, and Edinburgh. They are offered every day in London and Edinburgh and every day except Mondays in York.

  • Notable Guests: They Have Entertain Celebrities Like Johnny Depp, The Prodigy, and Whoopi Goldberg

For those really wanting to make the most of the experience, treat oneself to their VIP experience and enjoy a Private Hire. Private Hires are particularly popular for special occasions like weddings, corporate team-building exercises, and pub crawls.

  • Tip: Plan In Advance, They Can Be All Hired Out

Discover royal executions (off with his head!) and "devious spirits trapped on the material plane". If one would like to know what that last point actually means, go on the tour! They say they won't give away spoilers.

London Ghost Bus Tour

Climb aboard their London Necrobus and see London like never before. There is so much to surprise everyone in the city of London. This is an extraordinary city that not even repeat visitors or residents can truly ever understand. It is the home of haunted dungeons, beheaded kings, and miles and miles of secret tunnels. The secret tunnels of London are much more extensive than the abandoned and secret tunnels of New York City.
