Newest Review: ... with it already being dark. The tour lasts just over an hour and during this hour a friendly guide will take you through spooky tales of past and present that are sure to have your spines tingling. I have only been once so far so am unsure of weather the tales are the same each night or if they vary them but the spookyness of the storys was enough to keep you slightly spooked and your nerves on edge without it being too scary, my five year old daughter loved this, i though over an hour would be a bit long for her but her attention never slipped once, although she did jump a few times and clung to my hand very tightly.

The ghost trail of york is a must see trip if you are staying in the area, it is very reasonably priced at just £4 for adults and £2 for children over the age of 3 when we visited. It starts at £7.30 and is run every evening, we went in winter which added to the spookyness of the night with it already being dark.

I went on this walk as part of a trip with the Girl Guides who I volunteer with. I didn't quite know what to expect. It started at around 7pm on the Shambles - famous street in York.

The Ghost Trail of York is one of many ghost trails in the city. This one starts outside the West doors of the York Minster every night from 7:30 pm. You can not miss the leader as he is always dressed in a victorian black suit with top hat, cane and cloak. The tour isn“t designed to be scary but light hearted family entertainment. The tour walks to 4 differant locations in the city and tells you a loacl haunted tale. I found the trail pretty funny, entertaining and interesting. Its lasts about 1 hour and gives you time to pop into a good loacl pub afterwards. I reconmend doing this as its a cheap hour of something to do in the evenings. In the summer ...
