Thoroughly enjoyed! An eccentric guide took us around the haunted spots of York and had lots of info on the ghoulish history.

A fun evening walk, which ended at a good time to go out for dinner afterwards. It was a large group, but the guide always made sure everyone could see, and spoke clearly and loudly enough for everyone to hear. Some good stories and entertainment.

Started well and showed us some interesting places and stories but did over dramatise all the time. We didn't think it was worth £6 and left early when the guy asked the group to wave at people in a restaurant and then pull funny faces...More
