Chamber of Horrors says it all: if you are under 12, pregnant, have heart conditions/high blood pressure, then this is not for you! There will be live actors, loud noises and flashes of light, though it sounds like a live concert, this SCREAM experience will probably leave you scarred for the rest of your life. Scenario: You are in a maximum security prison, making a visit, and all of a sudden it is taken over by crazed inmates. You have to scream your way out.

With a history of beheading, torture and ghosts, this place is definitely haunted and a very appealing attraction! A notable ghostly resident is Anne Boleyn who was beheaded in the 1500s for treason against Henry VIII. You may find her roaming the chapel of St Peter ad Vincula, where she’s buried.

On 27 January 1626, an unfortunate incident occurred to Lady Elizabeth Hatton. She was found dead, torn limb to limb, in the courtyard. No one knew what actually happened, but it is said her heart was still pumping blood, hence the name of the yard and tavern. Spooky legend and even mentioned by Charles Dickens, this place has a solid haunted past.
Greenwich Foot Tunnel

Built in 1902 the tunnel is located 15 metres deep and is 370 metres long, of eerie underground footpath. Claustrophobia may be brought on by just being in the tunnel, and fear from the echoes of wind and footsteps!

Filled with preserved specimens in jars (including baby fetuses), this disturbing attraction is filled with oddities. These are all collected by Georgian surgeon Sir John Hunter. He is considered the father of scientific surgery, so prepare yourself to not only see all sorts of horrible diseased remains but also some early failed surgeries.
