I’m so glad you enjoyed the evening and sorry for the delay in responding to your kind comments about the Ghost Walk.
I hope to include something for everyone and all ages as I usually have a pretty mixed age range for the guided walks and especially the Ghost Walk. I don’t think there can be anywhere more pleasant than Castle Hill in any weather really as its always so beautiful and very dramatic(especially when it’s a bit wild!!) Reluctantly I actually increased the price for adults this year to £5 after holding them for several years, I hope it still represents good value. I will really look forward to greeting you on another walk soon. Kind regards Marion

“Haunted Tenby”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

Great walks through the old town which is situated within castle walls. Loads of history relating to the pubs where ghosts hang out in Tenby. Tenby truly is haunted in the backstreets!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the Ghost Walk and you kind comments. Really glad to know you enjoyed the walk when you were here. It must seem a bit spooky to hear from me after all this time -like a voice from the past!!
Kind regards Marion D

“An entertaining ghost walk around the beautiful tenby... packed with local knowledge and spooky tales”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

I have been visiting Tenby for my annual summer holiday for the past 9 years... and EVERY year I MUST go on the GHOST WALK!!!! The friendly, quirky and very knowledgeable guide who I like to call ‘The Ghost Walk Lady’ takes you around this seaside town stopping at several beautiful sites which she uses as backdrops for her ghostly tales.

There are several local ghosts stories included in the walk which - from my memory (I have been on it 9 times!!) – include the spirits of pirates, murderers and jilted brides as well as phantom funeral processions and demons. She also highlights areas in the town which are rumoured to be haunted. The Ghost Walk Lady also reveals local tales regarding superstitions at sea, death rituals, fairy magic and witches... all packed with local history! This is a family walk- so there are a couple of humorous tales of mischievous ghosts (and their knicker-moving antics) for the kids too.

The walk is not underpant- soiling scary- and you will not see ghosts or hear scripted screams and moans around the town (after all it is not ‘Most Haunted’). It has rained during the last few ghost walks I have been on, which brings a spooky ambience to the experience- so remember to bring a brolly and wrap up warm! This is a great hour and a half... I love to warm up afterwards in the haunted Quay Rooms, noted in the guide, with a hot drink ... to mull over all this brilliant walk gives you to think about!!

“Great entertainment, great value - great guide”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

Having been on this walk with my family more than once I can heartily recommend his guided walk. The stories are based on local legend and the guide delivers them with the right amount of humour to make these walks great and entertaining for every age. I have been on several ghost walks in the past and have never expected to see a real 'ghost' - the value of these walks are in the guides telling and she makes the hour and a half very entertaining indeed.
