Booked this for myself and my mum through Groupon, thought it would be a laugh. A small group of about 6 of us met outside a local pub and the guide took us on a walk through the City Centre, stopping at different sites. More of a history of Coventry with Ghost stories rather than just ghost stories.

The group apparently meet monthly on a Friday at the Establishment in town (excellent pub too) where they offer a meal and a ghost tour of the building, all for £20. Definately would book if I had the courage!

Would highly recommend this tour!

Like others I went on the tour last week not expecting a great deal but as an ex History teacher was fascinated by the information and the knowledge of the guide.It could have been enhanced I feel if admittance could be gained into some of the places en route e.g.St Mary's Hall to have added some ghostly atmosphere!

Booked a groupon for 6 of us 'for a laugh!'. When we turned up & saw the guide we were in bits, thinking there was no way we would be able to take this seriously, but how wrong we were!
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. Wasn't so interested in the ghost info but being a Cov kid was fascinated by how much I learned about the city I thought I knew all about! Extremely informative and interesting. Am now booking on the late evening trip as well.
Well worth it - you will be pleasantly surprised.

I am a ghost sceptic but booked this walk on a Groupon offer as I have been on them in other cities and enjoyed the hidden history. Being from Coventry made it more interesting and I was amazed to be shown the river that runs through the middle of the city down Palmer Lane running under the Burges and under a night club which I used to go too. Ghost stories were not scary at all and with a surprisingly large group, over thirty, it seemed that this is very popular with quite a few comments made by groups of clubbers pointing out to there friends "there's the ghost walk".
I have just bought the voucher for the south side ghost walk which has just been put on Amazon local, so looking forward to some more information about my city.
Well worth it if you are around on a Friday night and it seemed that not all of the group were locals with many people travelling to what was the fourth largest city in medieval times.

Friend and I went on the 630 tour. Ghost stories were great but not terrifying and the historical into about the city fascinating. Being a Coventrian I thought my knowledge of the city was pretty good but I genuinely learnt a lot and will see certain parts of the city in a new light.

Make sure you dress appropriately for the weather so it doesn't spoil your enjoyment as you will be exposed to the elements for most of the tour.

It was that good I am going to take my husband on the same tour and do the 9pm one too.
