The Original Robin Hood’s Bay Ghost WalkTake a Unique Tour through Streets and Alleyways as you listen to Tales of the Strange and Supernatural set against a background of Smugglers, Sailors and Shipwrecks, Folklore and Legend.Meet at the Slipway in the Dock outside the Visitor Centre. There is also a Board showing times, next to the Slipway on days of Walks. This walk is designed to suit most ages. Adult only groups receive a different kind of story to groups with children. I have to adapt it accordingly. But overall it is meant to amuse, entertain, to be thought provoking, informative and inclusive, regardless of age. However, the walk is not suitable for small infants (under 3), babies and pushchairs. Also due to previous experience, regrettably dogs are no longer allowed on the walk.
