Everyday we walk around the city totally unaware of what lies below.  

Coventry is steeped in history from the macabre to the morbid. 

Here at Hideous History, I  offer walking tours that follow in the footsteps of monks, mayhem and murder. 

Dark tourism is alive (or is it…) take a walk with me and uncover Coventry and its grisly past. 

You will hear tales of time, death and darkness ranging over 700 years. 

Hideous History is also part of Tourist 2 Local – standard tours are marked with a T2L logo and are less morbid and suitable for over 10’s. 

See Debs over in my photo, she has way too much fun on my walks!
