Beware of the Zombies!
It is a well known fact that since its Opening in 2008, The London Tombs has been home to an array of terrifying, gruesome and cunning zombies down in its depths. The question is, however, if the zombie army rose up and started a zombie invasion, would you know how to shield yourself??
Here are 10 handy tips to ensure you survive a zombie encounter:
- Make sure you run!
Zombies are slow. The fastest one can attempt a speed-stumble, but generally they can't move as fast as a human jogger.
- Start rubbing those sticks together!
Zombies hate fire, so start a nice little fire burning to keep them at bay.
- Wear tight clothes and tie up your hair!
Zombies will do just about anything to get hold of you, so keep your clothes tight and your hair tied back to prevent being snagged by undead fingernails!
- Burn a dead one!
Zombies, once killed, can still regenerate and will come back to find you with a vengeance. So make sure that if you kill a zombie, cremate it so it doesn't come back to try and bite you!
- Stay away from Chuck Norris!
If Chuck gets bitten, possibly the most dangerous zombie ever will be created! So, if you see Chuck Norris, run!! After all, when the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night, he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
- Stairs are your friend!
Zombies have really poor co-ordination, so will often have trouble trying to get up staircases, making them slow and easier to kill/run away from!
- Stay away from any Zoos!
Human zombies are hard to escape from, but imagine a zombie animal stampede after you...doesn't bare thinking about!
- Get a boat!
Zombies don't like water as they have no brain activity, and so they lack all of the physical control that would enable them to swim!
- Get to the Supermarket!
A supermarket is a great place for long-term survival as it has all the food and entertainment you could need! Just make sure you create strong barricades to stop the Zombies from getting in, then sit back in the comfort of the home section and enjoy all of the free food on offer!
- Go for the brain!
The best way to kill a zombie is to destroy the brain which will then immobilise them. And if they cant move (or bite!) then you will be far better off!
Now you should be armed with all the necessary skills to survive a zombie invasion and continue the human race should this crazy event ever occur! Good luck!
Ghost Hunting At The London Bridge Experience
Do you believe in ghosts? Have you got a fascination with the paranormal? Or perhaps you just like being scared witless.
Either way, Haunted Happenings at the London Bridge Experience and London Tombs are one of the best ways to spend a night in London
In 2007 the BBC reported how builders refused to work alone in the tombs after a collection of skeletons were uncovered in a sealed vault in the basement. Light bulbs blew for no reason, tools mysteriously disappeared and contractors all felt as if someone was watching their every move.
Later that year, before the tombs were opened to the public, bloggers retold stories of their nights among the dead. Further reports of faulty lighting, strange noises and ticking clocks were all commonplace and even the most hardened ghost hunter felt the cold chill of the paranormal activity in their immediate surroundings.
Haunted Happenings are immensely popular nights that have just one intention – to reinstate your childhood fear of the dark.
Join an expert paranormal team equipped with the latest ghost-hunting gadgetry as you go in search of all things abnormal. A historian will impart their knowledge of the area and mediums will be on hand to make connections with the other side.
Haunted Happenings are one of the most popular evening london attractions, so book early to avoid missing out.

Meet Queen Boudicca
When the Romans invaded old Londinium in AD 43, they hadn't reckoned on the power of the Iceni. After Prasutagus, the ruler of the Iceni died, the Romans seized the opportunity to take this part of the country for their own to the detriment of the Iceni.
The late Prastagus's wife, Queen Boudicca was publicly flogged; her children deflowered; and property was confiscated which caused widespread resentment towards the Romans.
In 60AD the Iceni rebelled and completely destroyed Colchester, the capital of Roman Britain. They went on to sack London and St Albans killing thousands on the way, and almost forcing the Roman empire to retreat from Britain altogether.
Of course, news spread of Boudicca's victories and a group of Romans led by Paulinus finally defeated the rebel forces. Many Britons died in this bloody battle and it is thought that Queen Boudicca killed herself to avoid capture.
A legend of her time and an inspiration to many, Queen Boudicca's finest moments are captured within the London Bridge Experience. See how the rebel forces thwarted the Romans in one of the goriest battles of the era.
