Not only can visitors journey through 1000 years of London’s darkest moments in history, but they have also introduced ‘Full Scream Ahead’ which is a train journey like no other. You will be transported through on a 19th Century train called The Death Express, an old London railway that transports the deceased out of London (to Woking, Surrey!).
