Special rates and flexible time/venue for school groups

We promise a unique opportunity to discover the hidden magic of our Ancient City through the real art of storytelling. Tales are drawn from the immense History of York and are told against a back drop of haunting beauty.

The Ghost Walk established in 1973, was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. The walk is accurate, authentic and genuine - we do not need to stage manage tricks or gimmicks. But it remains above all a fun night out for all.

As a result of our success, our stories are renowned and retold all over the world.
