Hex and the City

The Story of London's Witches - A Guided Tour
with Herstorical Tours
Friday the 13th & 20th October 2023 at 7:30 pm

London may be one of the most open and liberal cities in the world now, but our capital has a long, dark history of witchcraft and persecution.

Join this immersive theatre walking tour on Friday the 13th where you will discover just that as your guide, The High Priestess, welcomes you to her coven and unveils to you the dark, devilish and downright unjust history of witchcraft in London.

Starting at Farringdon and ending at St Pauls Cathedral, you will meet some of the forgotten women who have been branded and persecuted as witches throughout the ages in our city - from medieval healers and Elizabethan social climbers, to pagan priestesses and wartime mediums. They’ve come back, and they want their stories to be heard… Explore the places that these 'witches' were associated with, and some of the locations that were host to occult activity, including a pagan temple, right in the heart of the city! This journey promises to be spooky and moving with a little bit of black humour thrown in for good measure.

So are you ready to be bewitched by London?

Tickets £15 including a 20% donation toward a host of restoration projects at Abney Park Cemetery. Please click here to buy.

Herstorical Tours
are guided walking tours with a difference. Created and led by women only, our tours focus on women's stories in London's history and bring those stories to life using acting, comedy and fun! With a special focus on the dark and curious underbelly of London's past - we explore the hidden nooks and crannies of the city whilst introducing you to the women that created 'herstory' there - from witches to harlots.
