More About the Author

Richard Jones has written books on subjects such as haunted Britain, the Jack the Ripper murders, Dickensian London, the myths and legends of Britain and Ireland and magic. He is a fully qualified London Blue Badge Tourist Guide, is Member of the prestigious Magic Circle, and was the originator of the acclaimed Jack the Ripper Tour, the London Ghost Walk and Charles Dickens London tours.

He regularly appears on television throughout the world and, from 2003 to 2005, he was the historian on Living TV's hugely popular cult show Most Haunted Live, in which capacity he carried out detailed investigations into subjects as diverse as Dick Turpin, William Shakespeare, The Pendle Witches, Matthew Hopkins, the so-called Witchfinder General and Jack the Ripper. He recently appeared on Channel Five's Jack the Ripper:-The Definitive Story and was the writer and presenter of the acclaimed drama/documentary Unmasking Jack the Ripper.

Richard organises a nightly Jack the Ripper Tour around the East End streets where the infamous murders occurred, and he regularly conducts his London Ghost Walks that explore the darker side of England's Capital. In addition he has recently launched a series of Dickens Walks that explore locations that featured in the life and works of England's greatest novelist.

Richard has explored every corner of Britain and Ireland to visit haunted locations and, although he has never actually seen a ghost, he is almost certain he heard one - or, to be precise, several. His "date with the dead" was at the wonderfully creepy Moore Hall in Ireland, which he visited on a bright August morning whilst he was writing his book Haunted Houses of Britain and Ireland. Whilst exploring its hollow interior he heard childish laughter in several of the rooms but, when he went to investigate, there was nobody there.

This book contains 25 haunted walks in and around London, its very detailed and guides you through the walk every step of the way so you don't miss a turning or spooky alleyway, there is a brief history of the places you walk by and through and for those of you that don't really like walking there's lots of haunted pubs to break up your journey. A very interesting and enjoyable book which made me go out in the snow looking for ghosts!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most imformative I have seen so far. 22 Dec 2001
Format:Paperback
Richard Jones has planned our trip out, step by step. I live in London, and I have been on guided waliking tours, but Mr. Jones has provided us with the details and maps so that we may all explore on our on and take our time. I am extremely excited about receiving his most recent book, "Haunted Britain & Ireland". The only problem I have with the book is deciding wich one I should go on first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, but...... 12 July 2005
By Hisame
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really did enjoy this book and I've roped my boyfriend and Aunt into coming with me round the Tower of London on the walk in late November/Early December....you know when it's dark, eerie and the majority of the tourists have pushed off.
It's a very good book, informative and fun and definately the premier in its category. Unsurprisingly it's brief in its details, a bit out of date and some of the sentences don't make sense i.e. "her he queen" BUT this shouldn't and doesn't detract from the book in any way, shape or form.
Happy Hauntings!

5.0 out of 5 stars another great book by jones 13 April 2006
Format:Paperback
this is another great book by richard jones.the book is very informative,laying out each walk very well with maps of the route to take and stories of the hauntings.it was very interesting to read.

I would recommend this for londoners or people planning a visit to london so you can get best use of it,as sitting in your living room reading 'turn left at the traffic lights and past the post office' etc will be abit odd but it was a great book and i really enjoyed reading it but to make the most of it take it with you next time you visit. great book.
