We didn't see any ghosts but did hear some entertaining tales from York's storied past. Some of the tales seemed a bit outrageous but when we fact-checked a couple of them, they checked out! To "Honest John"!

We were stopping in York on bonfire night after we’d had a spa day, and had decided the last time we stayed in September that we would do some kind of ghost/terror walk when we came again. We went for a drink in the Golden...More

The actors were great and really brought the stories to life but some parts felt a little forced and more appropriate for kids. The tour was advertised as 75 mins but was closer to 90 so had to miss the end to avoid missing out...More

For young children it is cute but as for older Adults, you may find it a bit silly as we did. The actors put their all into it and included the Audience.

My husband and I set out intent on a ghost walk, but found ourselves here instead. Who needs ghost stories when the real thing is so much worse? This tour is entertaining and fun, but reminds you that History teaches you what it is in...More

Just turn up outside the Golden Fleece Pub. They won’t take any money off you until the end of the walk. I think it’s a 7 start, but the sign is there all day giving the details. Enjoy.
