Owner description: York Terror Trail, a history tour of the horrors of York.There is a monster, 1900 years old, thousands have died in its name. Like all the best masters of disguise it’s gone by many names: Eboracum, Eoforvic, Jorvic… today we just call it York. It has many weapons: battles, murders, terrible accidents and deliberate neglect. This city has two sides, the one it wants you to see and the one it doesn’t. It hides it down back streets and in the corner of your eye. We shouldn’t want to see it but we do. The terror trail can show it to you…The tour starts 6.45pm every night from York’s most haunted pub the Golden Fleece Inn.Adults: £5Children: £2

My wife and I did the "Terror Walk" with Damian on the evening, (03/05/2014). Damian blends the theatrical with his fantastic local knowledge of York, (like two ugly sisters), to wrench at your emotions, plunging you into both the story and the depths of human emotion. You will cry tears of upset and extreme laughter, followed by a chance to finish the night at The Golden Fleece, where you may find you do not want to leave. Great tour, regards "Jimmy".

Went on a walk with Damian, who was an excellent storyteller and had us captivated. I really enjoyed this walk versus some of the others we looked at because it was more based in history. Actually being at the sites while you are hearing the stories gives it a depth you just have to experience. It was the best value for money spent hands down!
