Just finished a ghost walk with Dr Crank and must say it was fantastic. The weather was atrocious. Hailing so hard it hurt my head! But luckily as the walk started it stopped and there were only 2 of us waiting with Crank. He asked if we were still wanting to do the walk (we did) and off we went.... More

Just got back from one of Dr. Crank's walks and we've had a brilliant time. Having missed the Dracula walk last night, I was pleased to see another one for tonight. The walk itself was a great mix of spooky stories and cheeky comedy. The guy is a natural born story teller and we also picked up a bit of... More

We went on the ghost walk on Saturday night and our guide was Claire. We went to the whale bones at 7:30 as instructed not really knowing what to expect but were very intrigued. Claire was dressed the part and we liked her instantly - we were part of a large group but she spoke well to the crowd and... More

My husband, 12-year old son, sister-in-law and I went on this walk last night - and what a fantastic time we had. Dr Krank is a true raconteur who draws in his audience and truly leaves you wanting more at the end of the tour. The stories were incredibly interesting and entertaining. If you are visiting Whitby then you really... More

A friend and I spent a weekend in Whitby and decided to take a ghost tour. The weather was quite miserable and not many of us showed up, but Dr. Crank did the tour anyway. Stormy weather set a great mood for the spooky stories but he always ended the stories with a joke to keep things light, which my... More

Fantastic hour spent in the company of Dr Crank...a polished and informative stroll through the less seen parts of this beautiful town. Worth every penny, and would highly recommend. Our daughter is 7, and hasn't stopped talking about the various ghosts and stories we learned about tonight. Wait...did anyone else hear that howl.....?

We really enjoyed the ghost walk. We loved the tales about the various ghost stories. The tour guide was entertaining and it made Christmas Eve this year great fun.

We turned up at the Whale Bones on West Cliff at 7.30pm on Sunday 6th November. It was a dark night and blowing a fair hoolie, and so bitter cold it made you wish you'd got a fisherman's gansie on. We looked in anticipation to see if anyone was there, and out of the shadows walked a gentleman who said,... More
