York city is riddled with ghosts: there are so many of them it’s often known affectionately as ‘the city of 1,000 ghosts’. The Roman-founded walled city has a long and spooky history waiting to be explored and this ghost walking tour is the best way to get up close and personal with all their favourite haunts. You won’t have the worry of getting lost in the spooky streets or ‘snickelways’ (alleys) of the historical city, whilst you listen to your guide’s tales of the tragedy and horror that frequented the very street you walk down.
Pick your guides brain with as many questions as you have the courage to ask, find out about the darkest and spookiest stories York has to offer and enjoy a different kind of introduction to the medieval city. You’ll walk through twisted cobblestone alleys, peering into local oddity shops, all whilst listening to the grim and ghastly tales from your guide.
This is the perfect tour to add to your itinerary, especially if you are a first-time visitor and a fan of horrific and spooky ghost stories.
