We went on this tour last and was not dissapointed. Damian was our guide who was funny and obviously very well versed in medieval history. He was a natural story teller and engaged with everyone in the group. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

We didn't see any ghosts but did hear some entertaining tales from York's storied past. Some of the tales seemed a bit outrageous but when we fact-checked a couple of them, they checked out! To "Honest John"!

We were stopping in York on bonfire night after we’d had a spa day, and had decided the last time we stayed in September that we would do some kind of ghost/terror walk when we came again. We went for a drink in the Golden...More

Just turn up outside the Golden Fleece Pub. They won’t take any money off you until the end of the walk. I think it’s a 7 start, but the sign is there all day giving the details. Enjoy.
