You need to take these ghost walks in the manner they are meant. This one was entertaining, yet gave a lot of historical information during the course of the walk.

The man that leads the Ghost Hunt tour is quite a character. He does an excellent job bringing drama and humor to the tour. Overall it was worth the few quid.

Very good fun and entertaining. Enjoyed it very much. The guide was great. Only costs 5-6 pounds depending if you have a coupon. Fun way to spend an hour walking around York and learning a few facts.

Three minutes in he made jokes at an audience member and continued to point him out the next thirty minutes (we left at 30min). He asked for upfront payment without really engaging us. There was one girl who walked off at this point and I...More

Did you have a question?
What locations does it visit? I visited when I was young and would like to find out more information about some of the locations! Thanks. Mostly interested in the big house behind the big gates

Worth... every.. damn... penny! I've been multiple times over the years - I'd happily pay more to experience the Hunt that's actually good, professional and keeps you entertained.
