Hunting the ghosts of York

September 11th 2008 11:54
If you don’t believe in ghosts, a ghost walk around the city of York will soon change your mind

Starting outside the west door of the York Minster at 7.30pm, (just go to the Minster and follow the crowds). It costs £4 and worth every penny. A guide leads you around the dark narrow cobbled streets, while telling you stories of murder, plague, and public beheadings.

York has a blood chilling past. Standing on those cobbled streets, I can almost sense the headless ghosts watching their heads roll down the blood covered streets.

See the window where the ghost of a young girl who was locked up, and forgotten about during the plague, is said to appear.


The walks take place whatever the weather in fact the darker and colder the better. I have been to York three times, and every time I visited, I do this walk.

The guides are superb and energetic storytellers; their knowledge of York’s grim history is spot on. One minute we were laughing the next we were filled with horror.
