Don't go down any dark alleys alone. The still-unsolved Jack the Ripper case has haunted and mystified history and horror buffs since the 19th century. Every day of the week, The Jack the Ripper Tour hosts a hunt for answers to the crimes and identity of London's most infamous serial killer.

What's lurking in the shadows? This ancient site and its surroundings have plenty of dark corners for ghosts to hide. On your hunt, keep an eye out for the Grey Lady, who was condemned to haunt the premises when her last wish to be buried with her family was denied.

Be prepared to be chilled to the bone. Formerly a World War I hospital, Guys Cliffe House is steeped in creep, and served as a filming location for The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, during which time it mysteriously caught fire. The overnight hunt on the grounds covers the manor's interior, where paranormal activity has been reported.

They'll put a spell on you. Travel to Pendle Hill to uncover the truth about the alleged witchcraft there if you dare. A number of creeptastic events, including death and milk turning blue, occurred in 1612, all associated with a family of alleged devil-worshippers living on top of the hill.

Hope you're not afraid of the dark. Stay overnight with the ghosts of tortured prisoners of Clink Prison, dating back to 1142. The prison may seem tame and childish during day visiting hours, but when the lights go down, who knows what will creep out of the shadows?

What lies beneath? This brilliant double-billed tour of haunted Edinburgh explores the city's hauntingly beautiful cemeteries and plunges you into the dark in the underground vaults, which over the centuries have housed the homeless, nightlife, and hidden horrors.
