Urban legends are living in the invisible and powerful soul of every city. In this esoteric place, one can discover lodging together kind beings or ruthless monsters. London is a great metropolis, thus within it hides deep layers – stories, secrets, and torments. Demons, mythical beings, and legends are sleeping in the murkiness of our city. From the tunnels and galleries, many red eyes are lurking at us with voracious cravings. Whether you wish to write about an urban legend in your city, or an imagined one, The Wells Street Journal would love to hear from you!
