You’ll be escorted round Oxford’s back streets by Bill, dressed as a Victorian undertaker, to reveal the city’s murkier and downright frightening past.
Accompany Bill on his Friday/Saturday evening tour around Oxford and you’ll encounter an aspect of the city you won’t forget.
Home to a variety of ghosts and spooks, be they animal, ‘human’ or devil, Oxford’s chequered history – student riots, sieges, regal jealousy, religious persecution, civil war, imprisonment, poisonings, plague, hangings and more – made it the setting for affray, violence and even murder.
And when the boundaries between scientific enquiry and magic were blurred who knew what would happen?
Intrepid ghost hunters are invited to enjoy an historically informative and hugely entertaining tour around Oxford, starting at Oxford Castle Unlocked or outside the Visitor Information Centre in Broad Street.
