There isn’t a lot to do in the evenings, so I’ve done all the nighttime tours. This one is an excellent value for the price, a leisurely stroll through areas I missed on my walks with well-told ghost stories.

Eccentric guide called Greg - lots of fun for £4 per adult. Walk lasted an hour which was long enough. More fascinating facts than spooky tales though!

Guide was friendly. Welcoming. The tour was cheap. Probably more suited to adults than kids. Gentle walk.

Attended the tour last night with my Husband. Greg the guide was really friendly. Well mannered and whimsical. There where lots of stories on the way around the tour. And Greg’s way of story telling immersed us in the story just long enough to almost...More

Having already done tours in the past with other guides, I decided to try The Ghost Trail. I arrived at 7.15 and was met by the guide. He was very friendly and was surprised that I had come out in the cold weather. Over the...More

The tour starts at the Minster and end at the Shambles.. As it is still reasonably light at 9pm,, you will find it an easy an easy walk to wherever you may want to go..
