It is St Barbara's day, patron saint of The Royal Artillery, Miners, Tunnelers, Mathematicians and Architects. She protects anyone working with explosives or fire so would essentially cover the Royal Arsenal site during its history with furnaces, gunpowder, TNT and cordite being used on site.

Meet Our Ghost Tour guides...

Sergeant Major Gore (retired) –
Don’t expect to have an enjoyable time on my tour. I do this because I lost all my money to gambling debts. I don’t like you and I don’t like ghosts.
I am the only tour guide to have ever to have been attacked by a ghost on site because I treat all of them with equal disdain.
As it is my job and I need to pay my rent I will guide you through the dark underbelly of the Royal Arsenal. We will visit the locations where ghost sightings have been made. From horrific accidents to suicides with some murder thrown in for good measure.
I would say join me and have fun, but what I mean is keep up, listen and don’t ask stupid questions! God help you if your mobile goes off or you try to take my picture.

Sarana (Superhero) –
Do not expect a serious tour with me. I’m just like a superhero: I have a regular job for a well-known local brewery by day and super psychic powers by night. I’m clairaudient, which means that I can hear those that have passed. I meditate daily and practice mindfulness. I have tattoos and look super cool too. Some might say that I’m an eclectic mix of eccentricities.
On my tour we visit the sites of some of the RA ghosts, and I’ll introduce you to the murder, mystery and mayhem of the Royal Arsenal site. Obviously we will discuss prostitutes and toilets. We are in Woolwich after all.
Please note that my ghost tour is not suitable for children. I will say it how it is and may occasionally use bad language. I won’t apologise for it. Ghosts do scare me you know!
If you are a true believer or just don’t want to be shouted at, I am the guide for you.

Happy Halloween you lovely lot. See you soon!
