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.
