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 -...

Interesting tales and history. The whole walk takes place within about 100m of Castle Square and is entirely outdoor. I had expected to visit dark scary places but instead had to imagine figures crossing the square. Tour costs £4 and on the whole is very entertaining.

Was looking forward to a night of spooks and scary moments.......unfortunatly this was not that sort of event ...the guide Dan was informative and knew his stuff but to me it was more of a history lesson than a ghost walk ..... Some information was provided throughout certain parts of the tour re buildings that were supposed to be haunted... More

Had an excellent guide, who told us some interesting & scary stories. The tour took around 75 minutes. I could've gone on longer. I would recommend it

Our guide Dan was full of knowledge and enthusiasm for the walk around the old part of Lincoln. Maybe more historical than spooky but worth the time and money we paid/spent. We're locals but learnt a lot that we didn't know.

I did this walk with my husband and two sons, aged 13 and 10, on Saturday night. We all agreed that it was a brilliant walk and were all thoroughly entertained by Dan. Highly recommended to all ages.

Signed up for this to fill in an evening. The kids found it a bit too 'historical' (they wanted people in costumes jumping out) but I thought the ghost stories were actually pretty good. Lots of local history too and a good dose of humour make this well worth the money.
