Have a supernatural experience by following York’s Original Ghost walk.
York – with its history of conflict and many tragic events – boasts more than its fair share of ghoulies, ghosties and things that go bump in the night. We have a list of registered ghosts, varying from Roman soldiers to the Grey Lady amongst them. In fact, we have so many ghost occurrences that the International Ghost Research Foundation announced in 2002 that York is officially the most haunted city in Europe.
This is the perfect backdrop for the Original Ghost Walk, which is believed to be the very first ghost walk anywhere in the world. Choose a long, cold night preferably around Halloween, and enjoy a night of history and mystery while exploring the folklore and legends that smoulder beneath our ancient streets to capture the imagination and inspire the mind. And who knows? If you are lucky (or unlucky) you might just see a ghost too...
