Was a fun and enjoyable way to see a different side of York. The man taking us was excellent and quite a character.

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.

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..
