Ghost Walk with a difference

  6 votes
The most haunted city in europe boasts some of Engands most entertaining ghost walks. Gothic Molly runs an amazing one which takes you inside some of the buildings made famous for their paranormal activity, 'a must do' for Goths.

We booked a ghost tour with for halloween because we wanted something different, it was about a £1 more than the others but there were 2 great storytellers, like a weird victorian gothic couple, they took us round intriguing haunted places with great stories, and we went into haunted pubs, and had readings with a psychic medium as part of the tour. It was super value and i am thinking of going again with my mates from work as an office doo. It does last a couple of hours and takes in several pubs so its probably not suitable for kids. also a real medium might be a bit freaky, but she was actually lovely and amazingly accurate. Probably the best thing about the evening was that we met so many wonderful people on the tour, we even met some the next night for a drink, I dont think that would happen on shorter ones. I have been to York many times, and learn something new each time, this one was a real eye opener, and is highly recommended for a great night out.

Favourite spots:
The Minster great shops Barley hall Roman bath museum (tres spooky) Richard III museum has a portcullis and a chopping block

What's really great:
Halloween ghost tour, Viking festival, great pubs like the golden slipper

eye of york (big ferris wheel)
merchant adventurers hall (medieval market hall)
have a walk along the walls

Coco's (bar with diverse bottled beers and cocktails)
The golden slipper (haunted pub with great fruit wines and specialty draught ales)
The black swan (pub with lots of live music events, draught real ale and fab oak paneled rooms)
Fibbers (live indie music club)
Williams bar (haunted georgean bar with Storytelling events)

Other recommendations:
railway museum is amazing
jorvik centre is great
