It was a dark cold (and windy and rainy) night. The storyteller appeared in the Shambles with a Bell 'bring out the dead' he cried. The stories are gripping. So much so you could even carry a little ghost around with you (picture attached). Highly...More

We have done two of the ghost tours in York and we didn't think that this tour would be as good as the original tour but it was. Our tour guide was really entertaining and made all of us laugh and jump. Would recommend

You meet your guide at the top of The Shambles and are treated to non-stop entertainment for an hour or so - very very funny and well worth the small cost. Brilliant!

Was a great performance from the tour guide, very entertaining. Having been a resident of York area for many years, it was a great experience, and a new way to see a city I was already familiar with. Great story telling, would highly recommend.
