Ghost Walks and Tours

The choice of York ghost walks and tours is impressive, with informative, professional and humorous performances guaranteed. The city is famously home to some of the most notorious ghosts and offers an eclectic mix of ghost tours around the dark cobbled streets of the city centre - renowned as one of the world's most haunted cities. The weekly Saturday night York Ghost Walk Experience is always a popular choice, departing 7pm on Saturday night from outside of the Gothic York Minster.

Award-winning ghost tours include the long-standing Ghost Hunt of York running nightly, commencing on The Shambles in the city centre whatever the weather! The Ghost Trail of York is another award-winner running nightly from the Minster. Cluster departure points popular with Ghost walks and tours include York Minster and The Shambles, Coppergate and Ouse Bridge. Tours usually last around 70 minutes, and often there's no need to pre-book, just turn up and join.
