Best for Fun - Expert review of Ghost Hunt of York

One of the most theatrical of York's Ghost Walk choices.

Reputedly Europe’s most haunted city. “From horror to hilarity,” the multi-award winning ‘Ghost Hunt of York’ blends ghoulish tales with gruesome theatrical trickery and a great deal of humour. The top hat and tailed guide delivers with forbidding straight-faced enthusiasm throughout while encouraging the whole group to get involved along the way. Lasting 75 minutes and suitable for families, this is an easily manageable walk through York’s shadowy past. The restaurant scene is particularly funny.

Price advice: 

Adults £5.00, children £3.00.
No booking required just pay on arrival. Print-out a voucher from their website to get a discount.
Discount with Yorkshire Pass too (See the Sights and attractions section on my York insider tips page for more details).

Expert tips: 
Starts from the Shambles and runs whatever the weather.
Aim to take the tour midweek when the group sizes are smaller.
Wheelchair accessible.
Those after a slightly more serious study of paranormal goings on might instead want to consider the Original Ghost Walk of York (
