Seek out ghosts and ghouls on a guided tour in the ancient city of Cambridge.
In a nearly 2,000-year-old city you’d expect the odd supernatural being or two, and Cambridge certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Most famous for its world-leading university, the beautiful city provides the right backdrop for a spine-tingling experience. From medieval buildings to grand gothic architecture, the haunting mood is set the moment you arrive.
The official Visit Cambridge tours are headed up by knowledgeable guides who will not only take you to the sights of known hauntings; they’ll also regale you with terrifying details and first-hand accounts.
Chilling stories tell you about Cambridge University’s own Ghost Club that was founded with terrifying consequences, a shamed politician, and even Oliver Cromwell’s floating head!
If you’re feeling really brave, the best way to see it all is by punt – where you can float down the spectral River Cam at night.
