They say you’re never more than three feet from a rat in London. but what about a faceless woman, or the remains of a burnt witch? This Halloween, Impero – a London based digital creative agency – is bringing London’s spine-chilling history to life…
London is a city rich with history – some of it disturbingly creepy. Its past is well recorded, but the ghosts, ghouls, and ghastly bits have never been brought together online; until now.
With Halloween underway, Impero felt it was time fellow Londoners knew a little more about what lurks in the shadows of the Big Smoke we call home. Enter Grim London.
Perhaps you’re living on a plague pit, or next door to a baby farmer’s house. Bringing the scary truths to life, Grim London is a personalised interactive map of the most spine-chilling events that have occurred across the capital. Discover the plaguing secrets underneath Aldgate Station, the floral ghost that shadows the former home of Nell Gwynne, or the unsolved murder of Emily Armstrong beaten to death in 1949.
Simply enter any London postcode (try EC1 (the city and Whitechapel for a great teaser – i.e. this was the land of Jack the Ripper…) and discover the gruesome truth for yourself, at www.grimlondon.com
