About
The Ghostwalk was established before 1973 and was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. We promise a unique opportunity to discover the hidden magic of our ancient City through the real art of storytelling. Tales are drawn from the immense history of York and are told against a backdrop of haunting beauty. We walk in the very footsteps of those who have passed before.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mark is an amazing guide, bringing the stories and history of this fab city to life. The tour is the right amount of time, takes you to the best places and is highly recommended. We were a group of 19 on an overnight stop with a work conference and it was a great opportunity to stretch our legs, have some time out and see the sights. Thank you Mark.

Fantastic ghost walk!!!! So glad we chose this one! Mark was very knowledgeable and kept all of us engrossed and interested the whole way through. So many interesting facts without feeling overwhelmed with too much information.

Would definitely book again with a different group of friends so they can experience it too.

A great evening in York! Went with my two young boys and it was manageable, interesting, and very entertaining. Guide Mark had great local knowledge ~ history, folklore & spooky tales. Would probably go again next time we're in York.

Loved hearing about the history of York as well as ghost stories. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and got to know every person in the group. He showed a lot of interest in everyone and had answers to every question. There was about 10 in our group which was the perfect size, anymore may have been a bit too many.
