The Haunted Walk of York was started 25 years ago by the same family that runs the tours today. We pride ourselves on traditional storytelling and do not resort to silly gimmicks or theatrics. The Haunted Walk of York begins at 8:00pm every night from Exhibition Square, in front of the City Art Gallery (over the road from Bootham Bar and the Information Centre). Traditional Storytelling 'At its Best'.

We were in York for one night and we joined the ghost walk, a lot of fun and not just ghost stories but history too, fabulous night albeit cold.

I had wanted a ghost tour of York that gave me some factual information about the City's rich history and I wasn't disappointed. I really hadn't wanted gimmicks or anything over the top and my guide, Lee, was incredibly informative and obviously takes his job...More

I went on the haunted walk last night, and it was an excellent experience. This is not the kind of ghost walk where actors in costumes jump out at you and tell corny jokes (Although those are fun too, when done the right way). This...More
