About the Author
Richard Jones has written and lectured on all aspects of historic London, but his predominant interest has always been haunted England - with a particular affection for the ghosts of London. For over twenty years he has been guiding visitors and Londoners alike on ghost tours and has conducted much personal research into the capital's haunted places.

The directions on the whole are clear and has helped me develop a good street knowledge of central London. The walks are varied and take you through old historical sites as well as quieter, more picturesque places. The book takes in theatres, palaces, parks, churches, shops, famous monuments, secret back streets, centuries old pubs, macabre sites and inevitable tales of sadness, despair and jealousy.
I am a skeptic when it comes to the paranormal but I do like a good ghost story. This book has a lot of good stories and they are even better when you are at the supposed site of the event. To make the walk more atmospheric I recommend doing the walks in the winter months between October and February.
Towards the end of the book the ghost stories get a bit tenuous (a dog looking for it's lost tail, hooves of a quite literally fictional horse (!), someone committing suicide rather than keeping their next dental appointment, and relying on mediums for evidence) and a bit vague ("somewhere round here" and for "reasons unknown or forgotten"). Ironically two of these are on one the most enjoyable walks in the book illustrating that the ghost stories are not crucial in wanting to do the walks.
Whether you believe in ghosts or not this book is a good way to explore London.
