Sometimes on tours like this you can't always hear the guide, but not so here. Well-spoken and easy to hear he sure looked the part as well. The tour is perfectly fine for kids as there were a few on the tour we went on....More

I am more interested in history than ghosts, and I felt that this tour was engaging. I learned something new about Nottingham´s history and now every time I pass some of the landmarks of the tour, I have a different appreciation for these buildings. I...More

I went on the walk with a couple of friends, not really knowing what to expect, but we all loved it! Our guide Simon was a brilliant story teller and was really able to bring the spooky (and sometimes pretty gruesome!) ghost stories of Nottingham...More

I went on the Halloween ghost walk this evening which I didn’t feel was spooky at all. The walk itself is not long really as there is story telling that goes on for a good 10/15 minutes at each place you stop. I would not...More

Hi Laura. I am very sorry you did not enjoy the ghost walk. I am sure you will appreciate that any ghost story is going to contain an historical element, especially if they are particularly old - as many of ours are. Perhaps you could...More

The walk was very interesting, not too long but not too short, all close by so when its finished you can go back to each place if you wanted to. The tour guide was very entertaining.

Good ghost tour and fun but, please, it is 2017 and it's just NOT OK to make "Backs against the walls" jokes about gay people. I'm a woman and I can live with the old 'henpecked husband' and 'battleship wife' but I refuse to find...More

Family of four did the ghost tour/walk, two boys 12 and 17. We all really enjoyed the tour, however I believe that it should and oould be better advertised as a Historical tour or walk, rather than a ghost walk. You don't see any ghosts,...More

Hello. We don't charge for children under 9 years old. The walk does include some rather graphic descriptions and the content is scary - as you would hope. As parents, we on the Ghost Walk realise that all children are... More

Hi – many thanks for your enquiry. I would say that you should certainly avoid the caves, which are about the last 20 or so minutes of the ghost walk, as the cave steps are steep and the floor uneven. We always recommend... More
