About
The award winning Ghost Hunt of York combines magic and energetic accounts of classic York ghost stories that will take your emotions from horror to hilarity. The Victorian guide in his frock coat, top hat and carrying his Gladstone bag manifests at half past seven at the bottom of Shambles, ringing his death bell he gathers the awaiting ghost hunters...

Lighthearted and entertaining but very informative walk. The guide keeps everyone engaged throughout. It’s suitable for all ages and abilities (I’m recovering from a broken leg and foot and was able to keep up.

Myself and my other half are people who always enjoy a good old ghost walk, as well as learning about some local history.

As you can imagine, we had a lot of fun on this Ghost Hunt!

The gentleman who took us on the walk was incredibly engaging, funny and theatrical, and this sort of thing may not be for everyone.

But for those who enjoy learning a little of the more supernatural history of York who also love a good laugh, you're going to love this.

Special mention goes to the gentleman who took us for our walk as well as the people who went with us.

This could be fun if you love the panto with a bit of a spooky twist. Pros: the guide can project his voice very well so you'll definitely be able to hear and plays the part of a creepy eccentric Victorian panto villain well. Lots of silliness and interaction so if you can just embrace the silliness and you arent interested in history and/or any "actual" ghost stories or local lore you'll get some chuckles out of it and a nice walk. Con: no real local ghost stories to speak of, just some generic morbid tales. Very slow tales, with a lot of filler.
I can't really recommend this tour, unless you're with some young teens who are into morbid stuff and the panto.

Absolutely brilliant! Would highly recommend. This is a ghost tour with a twist, it’s scary with its stories but also such a laugh with friends. The guide was hilarious and kept the group laughing the whole way through and was such a good story teller. Definitely worth the money! I have read some previous reviews on here and people are way too hard to please. If you’re expecting to see ghosts go on most haunted for goodness sake!!!
