My friend and I had a fantastic afternoon. We enjoyed our walking tour with Ruth. She was knowledgable, funny and gave us and insight of horrible history, secrets and interesting stories. I learnt a lot and highly recommend this excellent tour.

You have no idea where you are heading which adds to the mystery of the whole idea - full of facts and weird stories

I had booked a 'Til death do us part tour' as part of my sisters hen do. We are had an absolute fantastic time, we laughed so much as well as being quite frightened at the same time.

Alex was a great tour guide and had lots of interesting stories to tell. The members of my group who had done ghost tours in the past said this was their favourite one by far.

I would definitely go again on another tour.

Spur of the moment decision to go. And don't regret it for a second. Very interesting to hear the ghost stories. We did the Hidden & Haunted tour. Liz was an amazing story teller and full of other interesting little facts. Some very creepy moments.
