Up for something spooky? York claims to be the most haunted city in the UK, possibly the whole of Europe. Its historic streets are home to 500 ghosts. Even the M&S in the Coppergate shopping centre is haunted!
This epic stag party ghost walk will take you on a tour into the scariest corners of the city. Fortunately, at least one of them is a pub! Fortify yourselves with some good old-fashioned Dutch courage at the King's Arms, before your qualified guide leads you out on your ghost-hunting adventure.
Will you visit the Theatre Royal, in which the ghost of a murdered woman, bricked up in a windowless room, walks through the shadowed corridors? This is the legendary Grey Lady, whose sight is said to bring luck to all who come in contact with her. Or will your ghost walk take you to the legendary Treasurer's House, whose cellar is the location of the greatest ghost story in Britain?
Original, brilliant, and guaranteed to freak you out, York's ghost walk is a totally different way to do a stag party night out! Start the evening by scaring the bejesus out of the boys, then return to the pub for a few pints to calm your nerves.
We reckon this is the ideal beginning to a Saturday evening on the town. We're not saying you'll see any actual ghosts, but judging by the comments we've heard it's one of the most authentic ghost tours in the world! You'll need a night out on Micklegate just to forget the bloodcurdling screams...
