Going on a Ghost Walk
Everyone, especially children love a good ghost story and what better way to bring a ghoulish tale to life than to get out and go on a Ghost Walk.
There’s no better time of year than Halloween to take the family off on a spooky adventure. Wherever you live in the UK there will be a haunted castle, inn, stately home, abbey, church, cellar, jail, even underground station waiting to unleash its haunted past.
Ghost walks around cities such as London, Edinburgh, York (which claims to be the most haunted city in Europe), Lincoln and Chester are hugely popular. A quick search on the internet for “ghost walks” will provide you with plenty to choose from.

Watch Out For …
- White ladies, grey ladies, green ladies, usually hovering over cobbled streets or staircases
- Headless horses and highwaymen
- Mary Queen of Scots, with her head tucked underneath her arm
- Forget your camera, although remember those ghosts do tend to be camera shy.
- Say “Is there anybody there?” you’re just asking for trouble.
- Dress up as Bill Murray, it will antagonise them and you don’t want to be slimed on.
- Eat cheese before you go to bed, you’ll only have nightmares!
- Let the kids know you’re more scared than they are. However if one of them declares “I see dead people”, you have our permission to run away screaming into the dead of night.
