111 Dark Places in England

That You Shouldn't Miss


Humans are fascinated by tragedy. As much as we fear pain, death, disaster and the macabre, we are attracted to places where dark events have occurred, whether it’s an ancient prison where convicts were hanged, a neighborhood destroyed by bombs or a cove where a young heroine died rescuing shipwrecked sailors. We call it “Dark Tourism,” and this guidebook takes you on a journey across England to explore its frightening history.
