Definitely more funny than scary due to the use of weird props. The guide was very good though and stayed in character the whole time. The stop off at the northern lights pub was nice as well.

Thank your kind review. It's not our intention to try and scare the pants of folks. We tell eight long-established accounts of hauntings and juxtapose them with comic respite. Our audiences are out for fun more than frights. We also have a good many families with younger children on board, so we can't go too over the top. Thanks once... More

We decided to take the Lanes Ghost walk with friends on Halloween night and weren't disappointed. From the moment that our guide arrived in full Victorian dress we were transported back to a time of Ghosts and Ghouls. This was a wonderful evening spent with a very charismatic and gifted story teller. Even though it was very busy in the... More

Thank you for your kind and praising review of my ghost walk. I was delighted to hear how much you enjoyed it. Halloween certainly was a busy one for us...as always! However, I always enjoy seeing so many people out and about having a lot of fun. Thank you once again. Kind regards, Rob (Silas) More

We were visiting Brighton for the weekend to celebrate my husbands birthday. He loves all things spooky so I suggested the ghost walk after reading great reviews on here. We were not disappointed, it was really funny ( and spooky) with lots of interesting tales. A great idea if you fancy doing something different. We were lucky enough to have... More

Sir Robert certainly knows how to spin a yarn and delivers his ghostly tour with great exuberance and flair... We visited on a lovely dark evening which added to the occasion.we previously had hired Robert as a treat for our guests at our wedding and he was equally very good on both occasions... His knowledge is both informative and fun... More

This was an entertaining evening for all the family. We were visiting Brighton with teenage children who wanted to do something for halloween. My 12 year old daughter thought it fun, my 14 year old son said he was "bored". It was very busy being halloween and I think the group should have had a limit on the number as... More

Thank you for your kind review. I did used to run a ghost show in York for some six years. Interestingly, there was a tale about a drunk monk, as there is in Brighton. His name was Jacudus and he was walled up in a cellar as punishment for his indiscretions as was the wandering nun of Meeting House Lane... More

Went on the Ghost walk through the Brighton Lanes, was very entertaining just the right mix of theatrical, scary and entertaining tales. Covered some fascinating historical facts about the area without being boring. Our large group had kids and Adults and he kept us all engaged. Great trip for all the family and included the chance to have a shot... More

Thank you for you kind review. I'm delighted you enjoyed the walk and your tot of 'Fisherman's Friend' It's not to everyone's taste. However, it tends to go down well on a chilly night. Kind regards, Rob (Silas) More

I had a lovely experience doing this for my birthday. There was a great mix of people in our group (different ages from around the country) and we stopped off in many places around Brighton to listen to some riveting ghost stories. Really enjoyable trip and I would do this again another evening.

The tour guide was excellent... Had the outfit and looked the part. Probably an actor... But was enthusiastic and did a great job.

We did not do the ghost walk but saw it going past as we sat eating outside in the lanes. Looked amazing and leader ringing his mourning bell added to the amazing atmosphere

I went on a ghost walk in York a few years ago and this had a similar format (Victorian 'doctor' with medical bag, mostly deadpan humour, a bit smutty but certainly not family-unfriendly)...no idea who originated this format but it works! I don't think Brighton has as much of a ghost 'pedigree' as York, but it's still worth going on... More

Thank you for your kind and positive review. I used to live in York and ran the 'Ghost Cruise' for the Yorkboat company, performing in the guise of an old Victorian ferryman. One of my fellow actors, from those days, now performs on the Ghost Hunt in York. York is reputed to be the most haunted city in England. Interestingly,... More
