Shadows of York Ghost Walk: Voted Best Small Attraction in York

See a spookier side to York without the worry of getting lost during this guided ghost walk around the streets and snickelways (alleys) of the medieval city. Listen to your guide tell tales of York’s tragic past that you wouldn’t otherwise hear, ask questions along the way to learn more, and enjoy an atypical introduction to the city.

We enjoyed the museum when we eventually found it - agree with previous review that the stairs are interesting! But they do tell you about the stairs when you pay . Fascinating exhibits which we visited as part of our York pass.
