Never been on it myself, but if you google you will find more ghost walk tours in York.

P.S. plenty of decent pubs in York too, pity you will have a kid with you ! ;-p

Don't forget the Birds of Prey Centre at Sutton on Forest for a great experience with your 12 year old - everybody loves it! After that, recommend The Rose & Crown in Sutton for exceptional restaurant food at pub prices - & they are very child friendly!

I think it wasThe Black Swan in the centre of york that let us in with our son at night (must have been about 12/13 at that time)

We found a couple of others as well who welcomed kids early evening but can't remember the names.

We found York much more child friendly than Chester ,where we had trouble getting in anywhere after 5pm

For the daytime I'd recommend a visit to the railway museum. We thought it would be just a few trains ,but turned out to be a really interesting few hours visit. Also The Jorvik Centre was good .

Yup if you can get out of town the Rose and Crown is the very best place to head for, spectacular food and very child friendly with play area etc.

In town of an evening, yes for me it would have to be a ghost walk, the one which leaves the minster nightly at 7.30 is my favourite but they're all pretty good

Enjoy your stay!
