The Ghost Bus Tours - The Necropolis Bus Company

Earth to earth…

The Necropolis Bus Company began in the 19th century as a private funeral bus service. The Necropolis vehicles or ‘Carcass Coaches’ as they were known to Londoners were able to convey the deceased, pall bearers and up to 50 mourners (no standing) to the final resting place. Each bus had an onboard conductor/chief mourner and a special siren or ‘mourning whistle’ to warn pedestrians of the bus’s approach. The sound of the whistle prompted gentlemen to remove their hats and bow their heads as a mark of passing respect.

Ashes to Ashes…

Regular service ran until 1967 when a tragic fire at the company depot in South Dulstead razed the building to the ground and destroyed almost the entire fleet of buses. Only one vehicle was salvaged from the ashes and was locked in a storage facility for 40 years. It has now been restored to its original design and is operated by NECROBUS as a sightseeing service in central London.

Bus to Bus

The bus is painted in the company’s traditional colour of midnight black. The interior seating is arranged in ‘railway style’ for comfort and so that passengers can grieve openly and offer condolences to each other. Decorative features include lamps and window curtains, which were always drawn if a coffin was stored in the vehicle overnight. This is based on the superstition that a departed spirit might be trapped by its own reflection in the glass and would be unable to pass on to the other world. It also helped to keep the bodies cool in the summer months.

Victorian extravagance touch is seen in ''The Salisbury".My visit found the place with an agreeable atmosphere, very good service and a surprisingly mixed crowd, i didn't begrudge propping up the bar for a pint.. The very name of this pub is the part of the fabric of British History And reaches back to Robert Cecil, the first Earl of A Salisbury who is said to have been the wisest man in Tudor Polities .The most important thing to note here is that--- The Salisbury has the distinction of holding the Platinum Award in recognition of quality of its beer. The interior is a wonder of etched glass, mirrors and mahogany. Coupled with some charming ornate art Noumea light fittings, you begin to appreciate there aren't many of these once commonplace pubs left in such good nick.The third Marquis of Salisbury. Queen Victoria"s favorite Prime Minister ,from whom the site of tavern was orinally leased in 1892..Prior to this the pub had been known as the Coach& Horses and Ben Count"s headland famous for promoting price fighting.
Food: Sub-standard. Cold, undercooked chips. Compressed, factory burgers loaded with garlic. Tomatoes grown and subsequently sliced way too long before they are served. Fish thick with batter fried to indigestible heaviness. Fried onion rings so tough that they would not crumble if you stood on them
