Believed to be the first exclusive ghost walk in the world. Fun but highly authentic. History, mystery, folklore and legends. A night to remember!
All guides are City, County (Blue Badge) or Equity Qualified – one has a degree in Yorkshire history! We can conduct or advise on tours in Yorkshire or across England’s North Country.
We all admit to a love for “live” theatre and our work includes; lectures across Britain and Europe; research for TV programme’s; performing in York Mystery Plays, Jorvik Festival, Early Music Festival and local theatre and radio.
The Walk was established before 1973 and was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. The Walk aims to be accurate, authentic and genuine, exploring a world of folklore, legend and dreams. We do not need to stage manage tricks or gimmicks but remain above all a fun night out.
We promise a unique opportunity to discover the hidden magic of our Ancient City through the real art of storytelling. Tales are drawn from the immense History of York and are told against a backdrop of haunting beauty. We walk in the very footsteps of those who have passed before.
