A fantastic and informative tour of Creepy Carmathen, with spooky experiments thrown in. Me and my son loved it! Money well spent, my son had more fun on the tour than he did at Oakwood that cost us a fortune!

“Brilliant ”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Really good tour very enjoyable good for all ages. My friend was nervous when visiting the cells. One of the group was convinced that someone had brushed up against her touching her hair.

“Not spooky”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

The guide is very knowledgable of the history of Carmarthen, and gave a well spoken tour, however I wouldn't call the tour creepy or spooky. Therefore I would have to give my honest opinion that I felt that it was falsely advertised.

I am so sorry that this visitor didn't feel that the Creepy Carmarthen Tour lived up to her expectations. I always do my very best to make sure that everyone enjoys the experience to the full. Sadly I am not able to conjure up ghosts to order (now THAT would be a trick) but I do endeavour to make the stories as spooky and creepy as I can.

“Fantastic Night”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

What a wonderful experience with Dr Nicholas Grimoire. As a resident of Carmarthen I was totally unaware just how many stories there are associated with the old town, both of the ghostly and historical kind. I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone and as there is a minimum of walking it is suitable for everyone. Nic is a wonderful storyteller and performer and his magic tricks are subtle but effective. He involves everyone in his "experiments" (we were only 3 in our party) and the whole tour is interactive and fun. The tour finishes in the old Police cells, watch out for the ghosts of children in cell 2 and the man in black at the end of the corridor (we saw them). I only wish the tour was longer because the two hours just whizzed by. Whether you are a native of Carmarthen or a visitor you should do this tour - you won't be disappointed.

“creepy Carmarthen”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Fantastic tour. I was the only guest last night but the good doctor still did the entire tour just for me, many others would have just gone "its closed!" and gone but not Nick, After telling me about the court room and a great "experiment" we moved in to the older part of the town I wont spoil what happens for others but You will never look at cheeses in the same way again. And then a visit to the castle to hear about the twice hung man then down to the cells creepy and a
Fantastic tour well worth the money and what a performance 10 out of 10 all round for the price and the tour
Thanks Nick
