About The Original Ghost Walk of York
The Ghostwalk was established before 1973 and was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. We promise a unique opportunity to discover the hidden magic of our ancient City through the real art of storytelling. Tales are drawn from the immense history of York and are told against a backdrop of haunting beauty. We walk in the very footsteps of those who have passed before.

Highly recommend this tour. A great evening out with tales told in a really enthusiastic and charismatic way. The gentleman leading the tour, who's name I sadly missed, was a fantastic story teller and had good knowledge of the local history surrounding the grusome goings on in days gone by. The tour leaves promptly so be sure to be on time.

This was our second time doing the Ghost Walk, previously just before we was locked down for Christmas. The same guy hosted the tour, we heard some different stories and had a great night, my son was super pleased when he was chosen to volunteer! We are a mixed group of ages and we all had a great time again. Thank you 👻

This was mine and my fiancés first time visiting York and we stumbled across this ghost walk when looking at things to do during our stay, and what a great job we did! Mark the tour guide was absolutely fantastic and a great historian and story teller, giving extra information about each pit stop. He was incredibly engaging and made the tour both spooky and entertaining. It was also great to walk down the shambles and find out about it’s Harry Potter roots! We would definitely recommend going on this tour and we’d love to do it again!

Did this as part of stag do in York. Was actually really good fun and the rest stops at a few pubs along the way made it all the more enjoyable. Mark was very entertaining. Wasn’t sure prior to it but was well worth it in the end so I’m glad we did it. If taken in the right spirit as we did then it’s a really good laugh

Very interesting way of walking around,at night, such a magical city. Very talented story teller, kept out attention entire walk. Good actor!! Recommended! He only accepted cash and this was not very handy for us coming with euros. It would be great if he accepted a different way of payment. Other than that, really good experience!
