A group of us booked as a private party for the Ghost Walk of the Lanes. We'd been on several similar ghost walks near to where we live so we had high expectations! We were greeted by a man clothed in Victorian gentleman's attire, definitely looked the part. He was charming, funny and entertaining which made the ghostly stories all... More

Hi, Shelby! I so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the ghost walk and supper at the Cricketers. We certainly had a lot of fun, along with a few frights. I hope you all noticed the information about Robert D'Onston Stephenson (the man believed to have been Jack the Ripper) on the wall of the Ripper Room, where you... More

This was the first thing we did on our trip to brighton and it didn't disapoint, Silas was a true entertainer and had us all laughing but also bought the dramatic to the ghostly tales. The weather was not as we'd hoped but as we popped into a local inn we were offered a small shot called 'fishermans friend' which... More

My teenage children and I did this outing and were amused and entertained. The storytellers are professional and funny. I recommend it!

Hello! Pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your evening on the Ghost Walk of the Lanes and that you felt it to be a 'great show'. The ghost walk is, of course, more street theatre than a mere traditional guided tour, which is what our customers enjoy. Thank you for your kind and generous review, it is much appreciated....

Great night out with work friends. Silas is a brilliant guide and his dramatic performances set the scene from the go. Not sure how true the history was but it had me hook, line and sinker. Then we got a bit of a warm with a fisherman's friend. Thank you.

Hi, Sarah! Pleased to hear I hauled you in hook, line and sinker with my tales and that you enjoyed your tipple of 'Fisherman's Friend'. As for the history, my tales are all based on long-established accounts. However, a few details might have become a tad embellished down the years; as is so often the case. Thank you once again....

Travelling with kids? Joining a Brighton Ghost Stories Walking Tour will be a good choice. The guide is quite versatile, his stories can be scary and fun, you'll get to know several tales at different stops in the old part of the city.

Hello there! I am sorry to hear that you were a tad disappointed on the ghost walk. Interestingly, Andrew (Jasper) informed me it had been a particularly good night on the walk with a delightful audience in attendance. It seems your disappointment may have been attributed to a little rowdiness on the streets that evening, rather than the walk itself.... More

Oooooh! This is such a fun trip. A costumed guide takes you for a walk around the Lanes of Brighton - a sort of pub crawl would be another way to look at it. It IS interactive but that makes it even more fun. I had it as a birthday treat!!
