13 of the world’s most haunted pubs and bars

The Old Bank of England, Fleet Street, London

Old Bank of England

Before the Bank of England stood here, two taverns – The Cock and The Haunch of Venison – occupied the site in the 16th and 17th centuries. Both were demolished in 1888 to make way for the construction of the Law Courts branch of The Bank of England, which traded on the site for 87 years. Now a pub again, the spot boasts a grizzly past at it lies between Sweeney Todd’s former barber shop and Mrs Lovett’s pie shop. The tunnels and vaults below the present building were where Todd’s victims were butchered before being cooked and sold in pies to Mrs Lovett’s unsuspecting customers.
