Went tonight and our guide was Claire. We went on the family tour and it was fantastic. We learnt lots and the kids thought it was fantastic. It's hard to keep a nine year old and twelve year old concentration and Claire managed perfectly. Would definitely recommend. Thankyou

We decided to do the ghost walk whilst up on the East Cost for the weekend. Checked the website which specifically listed the date and start time of 7.30 at the Whalebone Arch. 50 + people turned up but the leader was a no-show. Waited 25 minutes then someone rang the number to be told it wasn't happening on Monday... More

Simple sign said meet at the whalebone at 7.30pm. Dr Krank introduced himself and that it was an hour of light entertainment. We haven't stopped chuckling at the tall Tales some as tall as James Cook's tall ships but I don't think we will ever enjoy anything quite as much as this.thank you

We decided to go on a ghost walk whilst visiting Whitby on a Monday evening, there was the choice of the market square one at 8pm or the one near the whale bone arch at 7.30pm so went for the earlier one, after having a drink in the hotel at the top, we joined the crowd just before 7.30 where...

What a great way to end your stay in Whitby! Me and my partner went on the ghost one and we laughed so much. It's definitely worth £5. We enjoyed it so much, we would definitely do it again!

The walk was enjoyable and entertaining.However, did expect a bit more in way of facts re Stoker and Dracula book. For £5 each, could have done with something at the end, which just seemed to fizzle out. Maybe a copy of the book for each couple or even a Dracula postcard.

Tour run by Harry in long black coat and black top hat. Fabulous fun exploring the streets of Whitby and Harry talking about Bram Stoker and the origins of DRACULA. Ever so good. If you are free on a Thursday night, this is a must. If you are not free, then make the time to meet Harry.

Great way to spend an evening. A variety of stories - spooky, local history and anecdotes. Our guide, Claire, projected her voice to the large crowd and involved children very well. Highly recommended.
