York Terror Trail, a history tour of the horrors of York.There is a monster, 1900 years old, thousands have died in its name. Like all the best masters of disguise it’s gone by many names: Eboracum, Eoforvic, Jorvic… today we just call it York. It has many weapons: battles, murders, terrible accidents and deliberate neglect. This city has two sides, the one it wants you to see and the one it doesn’t. It hides it down back streets and in the corner of your eye. We shouldn’t want to see it but we do. The terror trail can show it to you…The tour starts 6.45pm every night from York’s most haunted pub the Golden Fleece Inn.Adults: £5Children: £2

I was hesitant to go because I don't like things jumping out at me. I was assured there would be none of that so off we went. I am glad we did. This tour was gruesome and gory and factual and so much fun. Stories...More

Just turn up outside the Golden Fleece Pub. They won’t take any money off you until the end of the walk. I think it’s a 7 start, but the sign is there all day giving the details. Enjoy.
