A good walk, with interesting stories and anecdotes

Spending a week in Whitby with the kids in tow, 3 boys aged between 8 and 13, it's difficult to find things to do to entertain them all - apart from giving them the WiFi code! So... read more

We went on the ghost walk tour on what turned out to be a slightly wet Thursday night, but still had an informative and enjoyable time. Our guide was excellent; could be clearly heard (even over the teasing of some of the locals - her fan club!) and had an engaging manner which kept the entire group listening to her... More

Great way to spend a couple of evening hours in sunny Whitby. Cost a total of £16 for 2 adults and two kids (12 and 5). The host obviously knows his subject and his delivery was very funny, entertaining and informative. we all loved the experience especially my younger girl (tour suitable for people of all ages). Highly recommended to... More

We decided to learn a little more about why Whitby has such an association with Dracula. Harry did the tour and although gave a reasonable account of the life of Bram Stoker and the myth and legend of how Dracula came to be it was just missing something. Both myself and my wife although not unhappy at spending a fiver... More

There are two evening walks that start from the whale bones opposite the Grand Hotel: the Dracula Walk and the Ghost Walk -- we went on the latter. Our guide Claire was excellent, and struck just the right tone. The walk lasts around 70 minutes, and involves a series of short stories at various locations. It's suitable for both adults... More

I went on the Dracula walk with my 9 year old son and we both thoroughly enjoyed our walk. Harry is an wonderful storyteller with a fascinating mix of fact and fiction about Bram Stoker and the creation of the Dracula stories, along the way we saw some parts of Whitby we never know existed. We were captivated and Harry... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute!! Not at all scary, very factual and visiting parts of Whitby not likely to be seen wandering around the town. Harry was a great guide and storyteller, personally I found him to genuinely include everyone in the group and great with the children in our group. Lovely way to spend part of the evening. Only disappointment... More

Went with 3 children on the ghost walk, which lasted an hour, There were a lot of people on the tour- over 30- so if you were stood at the back it was difficult to hear- especially on top of the car sounds . Was a pleasant way to spend an hour, but as I couldn't hear half of it,... More

Went on the ghost walk on Halloween.The walk lasted 45 minutes - not the 75 minutes advertised on the website. The walk guide (Harry Collett) had no clue about captivating an audience, could barely be heard and filled much of the time with pointless walking and silly activities. The tour was neither scary or particularly informative. Not particularly expensive at... More
