Here at the Rembrandt we do our best to experience all that London promises: a unique mix of designer shopping, multi-cultural dining, royal pageantry and art. But, for those of you who enjoy gruesome history, a visit to the London Bridge Experience and Tombs is just for you.
Famed for being the most haunted of London’s bridges, the Tombs are below the vaults of the bridge and were formerly a plague pit. Add in a bit of technological wizardry, some historically dressed actors and you can experience all the terrors of London’s history. Experience a battle with Queen Boudicca or watch as Viking King Olaf pulls down the bridge in 1012, escape the Great Fire of London and avoid being the next victim of Jack the Ripper. Who knows, you might even encounter the famous Tombs ghost Emily, who has been seen watching the tour groups before she gradually disappears! Visit the London Bridge Experience website for more information.
And, if you are after more ghostly encounters, visit the Royal Albert Hall, where two ‘Ladies of the night’ dressed in Victorian finery are said to have been seen roaming the upper gallery before disappearing into one of the side rooms.
You will definitely need a calming drink after those experiences, so luckily the Rembrandt Hotel is only ten minutes’ walk from the Royal Albert Hall. Come and join us in the 1606 Lounge Bar; it’s open until midnight and offers some delicious bar food. A great way to finish off your adventurous day. Our website gives you full details and a sample menu.
