Tyburn Convent

Catholic retreat on the Bayswater Road and very weird and spooky

Location: 8 Hyde Park Place, W2 2LJ

Description: A catholic retreat on the Bayswater Road and a trule remarkable and spooky place. Since 1903, this chapel has seen londoners praying before the cross, and the memories of a group of Benedictine sisters who were forced to leave France and who turned this into a shrine to a martyr who died on the nearby Tyburn gallows during the reformation. Scary, wierd and home to corpses and various body parts:

-Linen & straw stained with the blood of five Jesuit martyrs executed on June 20, 1679.
-Bone from the finger of St John Roberts, hanged, drawn and quartered on December 10, 1610.
-Fingernail of Thomas Holland, executed on December 12, 1642.
-Sliced vertabrae of John Lockwood, executed on April 13, 1642.
-Bloody cloth from robes of Oliver Plunkett, hanged for treason, July 1 1681.
