Viaduct Tavern Friday The 13th Ghost Hunt

The Viaduct Tavern is located near St. Paul's, opposite the Old Bailey. Built in 1869 this is the last example of a late Victorian gin palace in London. 

Built on site of Old Newgate prison, where hundreds of executions and hangings took place, the original debtors cells are still in the cellar of the pub! There are rumours of the first floor being an opium den when this pub was opened, a highly popular taboo during the Victorian era. The upstairs is an area that most of the pub staff will not go up to alone... a woman in white has been seen here on more than one occasion. The pub itself retains original features from its period, including the deep red walls with mirrors surrounding, giving a very dark yet opulent vibe. Also still intact behind the bar is the token booth installed by the landlady many years ago. She didn't trust her light fingered staff, so had her patrons buy tokens from her at the booth so they could buy there gin and ale. Staff have many stories here of being touched, hearing loud bangs and footsteps from upstairs, poltergeist activity in the cellars and some rather unusual activity in the toilets!! 

This is a fantastic piece of London history set in a beautiful part of London, the backdrop of St. Paul's and the old bailey give this unique gin palace a very haunting feel....
We always look forward to visiting the Viaduct tavern!
