The Robin Hood's Bay Ghost Walk

Robin Hoods Bay, United Kingdom
About The Robin Hood's Bay Ghost Walk
The Original Robin Hood’s Bay Ghost WalkTake a Unique Tour through Streets and Alleyways as you listen to Tales of the Strange and Supernatural set against a background of Smugglers, Sailors and Shipwrecks, Folklore and Legend.Meet at the Slipway in the Dock outside the Visitor Centre. There is also a Board showing times, next to the Slipway on days of Walks. This walk is designed to suit most ages. Adult only groups receive a different kind of story to groups with children. I have to adapt it accordingly. But overall it is meant to amuse, entertain, to be thought provoking, informative and inclusive, regardless of age. However, the walk is not suitable for small infants (under 3), babies and pushchairs. Also due to previous experience, regrettably dogs are no longer allowed on the walk.

This is a must for anyone! A perfect mix of ghost stories, local history and spiritualism. Rose is a fantastic storyteller bringing to life tales of smugglers, witches and magic. I’d definitely recommend!

We noticed the Ghost Walk advertised at our Campsite and decided it would be a good opportunity to learn more about Robin Hoods Bay and it's history along with listening to a few 'ghost' stories. I can fully understand the few differing views on the...More

I loved this story tour of robin hood’s bay. Not what some would expect. No dressed-up characters leaping out of doorways. Instead a deeply moving, magical, grounded and connected story-telling of robin hood’s bay, of ancient pathways across the moors, of lovers, and shipwrecks, and...More

This is a must do if you’re visiting Robin Hood’s Bay. It’s informative, atmospheric and a thoughtful presentation of the history of the bay. You could hear a pin drop we were all so intrigued.

Having enjoyed several ghost walks before, this one came highly recommended. We paid our £6 each and waited to be haunted with tales of the sea, of smugglers and the undead. Our host was friendly, but once the tour began, it became apparent that this...More
