    Tired village shops
    It was a nice place to visit but unfortunately like a lot of villages and harbours due to struggling times empty shops or charity shops but still worth a visit

    Great fun and ghoulish.....
    Excellent. This was the first time I'd ever booked a walking ghost tour. My experience was excellent. Who knew Ilfracombe had so many ghostly stories. The guide, whose name escapes me, was an excellent story teller and made this guided tour great fun and ghoulish at the same time. Very well done. I would highly recommend this if you are visiting Ilfracombe and are interested in Ilfracombe's ghostly history.

    An evening of ghost stories and hauntings
    Our tour guide was both knowledgeable and able to take us back in time when telling us of the ghosts that haunt Ilfracombe. This was an excellent tour that we all enjoyed very much. Happy to recommend.

Went on the tour last week and it was absolutely amazing from start to finish! Mark was great and very welcoming to the group, he had loads of knowledge of the history ilfracombe and some great ghost 👻 stories to tell us too. We had a nice walk around the town which brought the stories to life before you eyes as you stood outside the buildings as you were told the tales. It was a great evenings entertainment I would highly recommend it and would definitely join them again on another tour! 10/10 can’t fault it.

We joined a Halloween Ghost Walk. I messaged for information ahead of booking the walk as a couple of our group can't walk very far. I had a very quick response giving really helpful details.
During the walk the leaders were very attentive to the people in our group, making sure they were coping with the walk, advising where they could sit down if necessary.
The tour was interesting. The main guide showed photos and pictures to support the tales. They had obviously done their research.
All of our party, aged between 12 and 83, really enjoyed the evening.

3 friends and I met with the tour guide and a young couple outside the Landmark Theatre. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and gave lots of local history and tales of ghosts and paranormal activity. The relatively easy walk was taken at a gentle pace stopping at various points of interest, with some quirky local stories and ending at the harbour with spectacular views of Verity. The tour was enjoyable and also allowed us to get acclimatised to the immediate area.

Really enjoyed this tour whilst visiting on holiday. It was interesting (and entertaining) to learn some history of the area rather than just passing through. Mark was friendly, very knowledgeable and provided some good ghost stories! Such a lovely place to visit too. Would highly recommend.

I booked for the family to enjoy learning about Ilfracombe's history. We had a brilliant walk/tour with Mark who was very informative. Marks delivery was spot on; very approachable and happy to answer questions as we went. We all said how much we had learnt and has prommpted some of us to research more. Thank you Mark for a very memorable evening for our family. Michelle

We met outside the theatre and we set off early, as it was just myself and my husband. Mark checked what we wanted to know about, was it both the history and the ghosts, which was great as he tailor made his tour to suit our interests. Lots of interesting facts on Ilfracombe plus some fun ghost stories. Tour ended by the harbour with recommendations for pubs and restaurants. I would recommend this tour.
