We took our two teenagers on this tour thinking they wouldn't really be interested but they absolutely loved it. From the tour guides costume to the spooky goings on around the bail tales, it really is a must see experience if you are up the steep hill

Excellent. Real value for money at £4 per person and not a scare tactic walk but led by somebody who had a genuine interest and belief. Interesting and historical. Made it more fun when she told us the local kids called her Harry Potters granny

I went on the Ghost walk with my Mum, Aunt and friend and thoroughly enjoyed it. As some have said lots of the info is more about the history of the city but this in itself was great for us particularly as a tourist in Lincoln. However saying that many of the stories told in the walk were quite recent... More

We enjoyed our evening walking tour even though there was a light mist. The tour is affordable and worth the money. You don't walk too far; there are several stops along the tour, mostly close to the cathedral. The storyteller did a good job of holding everyone's attention. Not a scary tour, but it's entertaining.

I have lived in Lincoln all of my life and a group of friends and I decided to try this and were so pleased that we did. Whilst not that scary, the walk was very informative and fun with lots of interesting details. It is obviously well researched and the lady was very knowledgeable and in character with the black...

Worth every penny of the £4 fee to join the ghost walk group. If you have to walk up Steep Hill to join the group, leave yourself a little time for some refreshment (plenty of pubs) before the start! Funny and self effacing guide, the walk takes you around the cathedral, lots of history and interesting information about Lincoln, all... More

My husband and I went on this trip during an overnight stay In lincoln. It was worth the walk up steep hill, the cathedral at night is spectacular!. The lady was very friendly and enthusiastic and certainly knew her stuff. We heard very interesting spooky tales about the cathedral and it's surrounding buildings. Not really a super scary experience but... More

Both my husband and I have done this walk several times before but it's always interesting and atmospheric. I had spoken to Margaret before on the phone to try and book a private party for my daughter's birthday party but had left it too late until the last minute, so I said we'd join the public walk on Saturday -...
