Overview
The Ghost Hunt of York offers an evening, walking ghost tour of York`s haunted locations. Whatever the weather and always on time, the Victorian guide with his frock coat, top hat and Gladstone bag manifests at the strike of half past seven at the bottom of Shambles, England's most famous mediaeval street. Ringing his death bell he gathers the awaiting ghost hunters and leads on to York`s darker side. The Ghost Hunt presents classic York ghost stories in a captivating style, no tardy tales of tedium but intelligent, energetic accounts from a guide with a predilection for fun and entertainment, illustrating the narrative with props and illusion. It is a journey that takes your emotions from horror to hilarity. The ghostly guide puts the crowd up to practical jokes and comic re-enactment in hysterical moments of audience participation.

In these uncertain times, our host interacted with the audience safely... Which made the whole experience enjoyable. Apprehensive to start, even our youngest was at ease and wanted more come the end of the walk... Thanks.

After doing many ghost walks in quite a few cities this one was not very enthralling! Perhaps would recommend for parties with children as some of the activities were quite childish.

During covid I understand there are restrictions but we were all disappointed. I think even a ghostly figure at a window or voices screaming or people jumping out or something at least. Not really impressed at all. Kids weren't interested at all.
