York Terror Trail, a history tour of the horrors of York.There is a monster, 1900 years old, thousands have died in its name. Like all the best masters of disguise it’s gone by many names: Eboracum, Eoforvic, Jorvic… today we just call it York. It has many weapons: battles, murders, terrible accidents and deliberate neglect. This city has two sides, the one it wants you to see and the one it doesn’t. It hides it down back streets and in the corner of your eye. We shouldn’t want to see it but we do. The terror trail can show it to you…The tour starts 6.45pm every night from York’s most haunted pub the Golden Fleece Inn.Adults: £5Children: £2

Having enjoyed a few 'ghost walks' such as the ones in Whitby and London I was well up for trying the Terror Trail when we saw it advertised outside the Golden Fleece pub, for £5 we reckoned it was worth a go…and we weren’t wrong!. We met our guide at around 6.45pm inside the pub and immediately we could tell... More

Great guide. Wasn't cheesy like a ghost walk would be. Great historical tales were told, good group atmosphere and a good laugh despite how depressing York's history seems to be (": fantastic! Very happy we was able to squeeze this in our 2 day trip in York. Definitely recommend to anyone with an interest in facts :)

After going on a walk like this in Whitby we were a bit suspicious about going on another (we ditched the Whitby one half way through, it was horrendous). However, this was a very rare moment where I was enjoying being outside in the cold! Damien was excellent! He put real effort into all the stories he was telling. Audience... More

A really good laugh with a brilliant charismatic guide who made the tour funny and interesting. Made all the more atmospheric by the very cold night weather.

As I was in York for a few days, I considered taking part in a ghost walk. We decided to choose our walk by the time suitability. When we first met our guide on a very wet Saturday, we were told that his tour was not a boast walk but a walk through history. At first all seemed slightly strange... More

What a fun tour. It is tricky to choose from so many tours in York but this was the right choice for us. A history based tour, mixed with entertaining stories and a bit of blood and gore......perfection. Tom Teach was outstanding as a guide. He was very knowledgeable and presented stories with great flair. Plus giggles and fun jokes... More

Can't find the actual word to describe it as fantastic doesn't even cover it. Nearly 2 hours of pure entertainment. Fantastic tales and interaction. Forget all the others this is the one to do.....

Damian (owner) was my guide and he was absolutely fantastic. Very personal and exciting tour. The perfect mix of horror and comedy. Bummed to see such a low turnout during the off season and wish him the best!
