The Original Ghost Walk of York is believed to be the very first of its kind in York, and possibly in the world (established before 1973). The Walk is accurate, genuine and authentic, exploring a world of legend, dreams and folklore. Above all, what’s offered is a night of fun and drama to inspire the mind and capture the imagination. Out tales are told from the immense and haunting history that York beholds. Walk in the footsteps of those who have trodden these streets in times gone by.

Due to this famous Walk’s success, our stories have been regaled the world over via visitors who have enjoyed what they’ve learned, coverage on TV (including ‘Derek Acorah’s Ghost Towns Live’), travel programmes, live Radio and extensive coverage in masses of magazines and newspapers. Many famous people have joined our original Walk including Richard Dreyfuss, Barry Cryer and Morgan Freeman.
