The tour starts at the picturesque Adam & Eve pub, we arrived early so that we could have a drink before meeting our host for the evening.

There are 2 choices of tour, The Elm Hill tour, which we embarked on, and the river tour. The Elm Hill tour takes you on a walk around the city, taking in locations such as Tombland, Elm Hill, the anglican cathedral and other assosiated places. Our tour took roughly 90 minutes, although times can vary as the group will travel at the pace of the slowest participant, ensuring no one is left behind.

Our guide for the evening was, The Time Shifter, who appeared very knowledgeable, not only on the subject of Norwich's spectral happenings but also of the local history. The Time Shifter gathered the group around at each location so that he could be seen and heard by all participants of the tour, he also acknowledged people that were passing by which I thought was a nice touch.

We enjoyed the tour and hearing stories of the souls that have never departed, some participants even talked about their own spectral encounters which added to the moment.

I would recommend Norwich Ghost Walks to anyone who visits the city and I felt that we received great value for our money. Booking in advance is a must. Should we visit Norwich again we will definitely go on the river tour.

Thank you to the Time Shifter and The Guild Of Shadows for showing a pair of time travellers around your city.

We did the Elm Walk last week with Le Morte, and thoroughly enjoyed it. A lot of effort was put in to engage the audience and we all had a good laugh. Highly recommend taking this tour, quite a lot of interesting stories to hear, and the history behind the places we visited. The tour ended by the cursed tree where the audience were able to share their previous experiences which was also fascinating to hear. Will be doing another one of their tours when down that way again.

We walked with The Time Shifter for a friend’s hen do and it was BRILLIANT! Really enjoyed the whole evening. Our tour guide was in character and gave us loads of detail on all the places we visited and made the chilly night time walk hugely entertaining. Even though we walked around for the full two hours, we weren’t tired and the entertaining and detailed stories kept us buzzing and laughing as well as suitably creeped out for the whole experience. I never knew there were so many interesting old parts of the city.
We all agreed it was a great night and that the Time Shifter was a superb guide. I’d go again and finishing at the pub means you can pop in after the tour for a wam up beverage. I’ve been on other ghost tours and this was by far the best.

Halloween night ghost walk was very entertaining. The Time Shifter kept a large group entertained, along with ghosts making an appearance to tell historic tales of Norwich and nearby. It was well executed with bits to make you jump, or to make you laugh. Will definitely be booking another one!

We spent a very enjoyable 2 hours in the company of Dr Mortifero on the Norwich Ghost Walk.

The group assembled outside the Adam & Eve pub at 7.30 and the walk lasted approximately 2 hours. It took in some great locations such as Elm Hill, Norwich Cathedral and Tombland. Although it lasted 2 hours there was not an awful amount of walking as each tale lasted 15 - 30 mins at each location and there were about 7 or 8 tales.

The tales themselves were great fun ranging from blood soaked murders to plague pits to ghostly chamber maids. They were delivered in impeccable style by Dr Mortifero who enunciates perfectly, dresses to impress, and is very funny as well as incredibly knowledgable on all thing dark and ghostly in Norwich.

We were not bored (and we had 2 young people in our group who were riveted to the end) and it certainly did not seem like 2 hours by the end. It was one of the best ways to spend a Summers evening! A further testament to how much fun was the fact that on our walk it was raining constantly and this didn't take away from any of the enjoyment!

I could see myself doing the walk again. There is also a river ghost walk which I will certainly be joining in the near future.

From start to finish all of the actors were so in character. Our tour guide was captivating and had us all chuckling and oohing throughout. We went for Halloween so some extra scares, would 100% recommend for something a bit different and to learn a bit more about the city!

Really enjoyed my ghost walk this evening (River Walk) with my wife and daughter. The walk was well paced, the scenery was great (I saw parts of Norwich I've never visited, and I've lived here all my life), and the presentation was spot on.
The stories were interesting and the delivery was engaging and thought provoking. Looking forward to trying the Elm Hill tour. Hopefully now he has over 100 reviews the storyteller can be freed from purgatory

We attended the Ghost Walk on Wednesday 8th September and really enjoyed it - Super informative tour guide who was jovial and appropriately sinister at times and despite being heckled by passers by, he remained respectful and somewhat witty to their various comments.
Although I am local to the area, I walked in areas of Norwich that I had not been to before and found out lots of interesting stuff too.
The guide was very informative and fun, with a topic which was at times a little unnerving as odd things happened along the way and no amount of planning could have staged the flying over of an owl whilst standing in the haunted courtyard or the eery feeling of not being alone under a tree at the Cathedral.
As we finished we even had a rustling in the leaves, which turned out to be hedgehog rummaging, all adding to the atmosphere.
I would highly recommend the tour and even our dog enjoyed the walk too, although I have to say he was a bit scared of the tour guide and decided to growl at him a little so perhaps he was picking up a sinister side???!!!
Looking forward to trying out the Elm Hill walk

Done a group advent with our scouts and they loved it. Our group of young adults from 10 years up to 14 years really enjoyed the history they learned of the city whilst be a little scared about the ghosts. Big thanks

Good evening my friends…

We came as a group of 4 for the tour, the number of others was good and we could hear at all times. It was a very enjoyable experience, though the theatricality meant we weren’t sure of the accuracy of the information. Regardless it was very enjoyable. Our host was le Morte, and he went out of his way to engage with everyone in the group so no one was left out.

Highly recommend, one of the most fun things we did on the trip. The tour we went on was the elm hill tour.
