There are few cities in the world whose history is as well-documented as London, but for those seeking the stranger side of that history you might have some fun with the Google Map above. James Clark, author of Haunted London and other books on the myths, legends and paranormal stories concerning the great city, put together the map with clickable pins that fill you in on the fascinating tales associated with each particular location – from White Ladies to Spring-Heeled Jack:
By no means an exhaustive list of London’s countless strange stories, this is simply a guide to those tales I have personally written about.
I hope this map will help you find locations that interest you, and – I’ll be honest – hope the summaries here tempt you to buy my books! (Go on, you know you want to…)
At the moment, I’m gradually adding stories from my 2013 book – Haunted Lambeth – which looks at the London Borough of Lambeth. Don’t forget to check back later to see what’s new.
You can find out more at James Clark’s website.
