"...And have you heard and I have heard 

Of puzzled men with decorous mien, 

Who judged - the wench knew far too much - 

And burnt her on the Salem green?”

© Adelaide Crapsey

London may be one of the most open and liberal cities in the world now, but did you know that our capital has a long, dark history of witchcraft and persecution? 

On this immersive theatre walking tour you will discover just that as your guide unveils to you the dark, devilish and downright unjust history of witchcraft in London. 

You will meet some of the forgotten women who have been branded and persecuted as witches throughout the ages in our city -  from medieval healers and Elizabethan devil-worshippers to pagan priestesses and wartime mediums. They’ve come back, and they want their stories to be heard…

Explore the places that these 'witches' were associated with, and some of the locations that were host to occult activity, including a pagan temple, right in the heart of the city! 

This journey promises to be spooky and moving with a little bit of black humour thrown in for good measure. 

So are you ready to be bewitched by London? 

Tour begins outside Farringdon tube Station and ends at St Pauls Cathedral. 

Run time: approx 2 hours. 

Fancy dress encouraged! 🌚🧙

    It was so refreshing to find this interactive walk about sex workers very respectful of the women themselves, putting their stories in the historical context of the all-prevailing patriarchy of the eighteenth century. The host Maria has clearly researched her subject thoroughly but wears the knowledge lightly and is never less than engaging and enthusiastic. All in all, the tour, including the talented actresses playing various roles, is entertaining, professional and occasionally very moving.

    We’ve done loads of walking tours, but this is special. It’s packed with brilliant stories, but it’s the immersive element and easy charm of Maria. That makes this something special.
