About The Original Ghost Walk of York
The Ghostwalk was established before 1973 and was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. We promise a unique opportunity to discover the hidden magic of our ancient City through the real art of storytelling. Tales are drawn from the immense history of York and are told against a backdrop of haunting beauty. We walk in the very footsteps of those who have passed before.

Fortunate enough to have Mark Graham as a guide; he is an excellent story teller. The walk took us across most of York’s key attractions and had tales of death, murder and luck! Graham really looks the part and made every story engaging, spooky and funny in parts. He’s also lovely to chat to in between sites. Would highly recommend for anyone new to York although keep the walking to a minimum throughout the day as I was shattered by the end of the 90 minutes!

Having attended similar events in other cities throughout the UK we were really forward to the walk and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Our guide was brilliant and played his role very well with theatrical presentation making for an immersive experience. The walk is a great way to see the city, covering a fair bit of ground at a leisurely pace. Entertaining, creepy and great value.

This was an incredible ghost tour! Plenty of laughs, the tour guide was incredible and such a friendly and accommodating man who made an effort to talk to all of the visitors which was lovely. The tour was 90 minutes and we learnt so much on the way and got to view a lot of York in the process. Would definitely recommend this as a must to anyone visiting York!
