Ghosts, Ghouls and Phantoms of London by Travis Elborough

Who is the headless haunter of Holland Park? And what of the frozen phantom chicken of Highgate? Where do these ghosts appear, and who sees them? In a 2,000-year-old city there are hundreds of apparitions, poltergeists, and ghouls. Through this unique approach, we witness the huge variety and history of London life--its people, their stories, and the many myths and legends that surround them. It also includes a visit to London's most haunted house.
