Portsmouth is hailed as the most haunted city on the south coast with a dark ancient history of murder and mayhem.

Make sure you stick close to your ghostly guides as you're lead through 900 years of macabre maritime history in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or uncover the dark streets of Spice Island, where your guides will transport you back to a sinister time of drunken sailors, prostitutes, cut-throats and murderers.

If you're a daring paranormal investigator, then why not join a ghost hunt in some of Portsmouth's most spook-tacular buildings including underground fortresses and haunted houses.

I ain't afraid of no ghost.
