Overview

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

Me and my partner visited York with another couple in January. This ghost walk was brilliant and would certainly recommend it to anyone. Our guide Damian was comical yet factual. A fully immersive and interactive learning experience. Thank you

Our guide Chris was enthusiastic, passionate and very knowledgeable. We couldn’t recommend this tour enough, we learned a lot about York’s rich history and we’re shown points of interest we would have walked past. A fantastic way to spend an evening in York.

Good experience. The walk pointed out a number of things I was not aware of - including the butchery history of the Shambles.

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.
