HORROR | 139 Copeland Road

It's always tough trying to share your amazing experiences of something when the event/experience itself is kept under wraps.

This is one of those times, but I'm going to try my hardest to share my experiences of 139 Copeland Road - without any spoilers - in a way which will hopefully make you all want to book a ticket and go because trust me, it's worth it.

139 Copeland Road is an immersive horror experience held in two derelict houses - most notably number 139 - in Peckham. 139 Copeland Road was where a horrific fire took place in 1974, when a lady called Mary Collins and her two sons burned to death without a trace.

Mary was a well liked woman and no one knows how the fire started or what happened to the bodies afterwards.

Charli and I headed down on Monday night, slightly afraid of what the evening had in store for us. I did not know what was or wasn't real, but I knew it was going to be an interesting evening.

When we arrived and entered into number 137, my suspicions were confirmed. We had the chance to read up on more details about the family that had lost their lives there and had the opportunity to see what the houses were like on the inside - derelict and falling apart.

It was honestly like something from the Blair Witch Project! And if there's anything to get you in the mood for a creepy evening, then it's definitely going to be standing in a house that represents the Blair Witch Project...

Our guide Michael (who suspiciously sounded like Derren Brown - I would not be surprised if it was him in disguise) soon joined us and explained what the evening would involve. We would be going next door (into the house where the fire took place) to take place in a seance (don't worry - all entirely safe) so that we could contact Mary and get some answers about what really happened that day and what happened to the bodies.

We were also warned that over the last few nights, there had been a LOT of activity.

I won't say anymore because I don't want to spoil it for anyone and, of course, no night is ever the same, the activity is always going to be different ;)

But what I WILL say was that it was an amazing evening. Terrifying - sure - but also amazing and eye opening.


I've done a lot of scary stuff in London. I've done the London Dungeons. I've done the Ghost Bus Tour. Most of these have been scary with a bit of humour thrown in.

But let me tell you now - 129 Copeland Road was entirely dark, intriguing and terrifying.

139 Copeland Road is running until the end of November and you can grab your tickets here now.

I would definitely recommend grabbing tickets for it's limited run whilst you still can. I will note though that the event is not for the faint hearted - however true lovers of horror will enjoy this experience.
