Queens, peasants, activists, spies, scientists, and royal advisors, the other history of London is filled with astonishing tales of men and women who dared to dream of a different lifestyle. From monarchs like Anne Boleyn to healers like Jinney Bingham, from wizards like Aleister Crowley or Gerald Gardner to astrologers like Nicholas Culpeper or John Dee, the bustling city streets conceal mysteries and legends of individuals who left a mark on popular culture due to their association with witchcraft and the occult. Did you know that the Rider-Waite tarot deck was born from the art of a London witch? What formula lies behind the mysterious number 007 of James Bond? Who were the wizards of World War II? What was Shakespeare talking about in Macbeth? From Akelarre Tours, we present a tour through the alleys of London, where we will explore the history of renowned witches and astrologers in an enjoyable walk along the banks of the River Thames.
