About the Original Ghost Walk of York

Guiding Team

Ad Finem

The Walk was established before 1973 and was an original creation believed to be the first in the world. The Walk aims to be accurate, authentic and genuine, exploring a world of folklore, legend and dreams. We do not need to stage manage tricks or gimmicks but remain above all a fun night out.

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.

As a result of our success, our stories are renowned and retold all over the world.
