The Ghost Hunt of York offers an evening walking tour of York`s haunted locations, it lasts approximately an hour and a quarter.
Whatever the weather and always on time, the Victorian guide with his frock coat, top hat and Gladstone bag manifests himself at the strike of half past seven at the bottom of Shambles, England's most famous mediaeval street.
Ringing his death bell he gathers the awaiting ghost hunters and leads on to York`s darker side.
The Ghost Hunt never cancels.Running as advertised it has operated with as few as one and as many as six hundred and fifty ghost hunters.
Always elevated, the guide can be seen and heard by everyone, children are encouraged to come to the front. At each location the guide directs the crowd to optimum positions.
The Ghost Hunt presents classic York ghost stories in a captivating style, no tardy tales of tedium but intelligent, energetic accounts from a guide with a predilection for fun and entertainment. It is a journey that takes your emotions from horror to hilarity.
The Ghost hunt illustrates the narrative with props and illusion; an audience favourite is when the impassioned guide 'cuts' through his own wrist with a knife.
The ghostly guide puts the crowd up to practical jokes and comic re-enactment in hysterical moments of audience participation, the most 'notorious' of which is the 'restaurant' where unsuspecting customers of Caesar's restaurant are subjected to more orchestrated body parts than they ordered from the menu.
The planned route is manageable by wheelchair and pushchair users.
The Ghost Hunt audience is predominately adult but the tour is thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family.
Throughout, York's magnificent architecture and maze of streets and 'snickelways' are the perfect backdrop to each performance of the Ghost Hunt.
Dan / Andy ..... Went on your enthralling and humorous Ghost Hunt .There are only three things to say about it: Hilarious, brilliantly produced and well worth every penny. We can and will recommend your Ghost Hunt to all our friends back home. We will be coming to York from Redditch again in the early part of next Year and will again join you at the Shambles. Happy ghost hunting Paul and Sam Taylor.
