    What to Expect
    Choose your preferred start time that best suits your schedule, and meet your creepy guide in central York for a journey through the city’s gruesome history. Board the ghost bus – a classic Routemaster bus with its own questionable history – grab a seat in the shadowy upper or lower deck, and peer out the window as you wind through the dark, narrow streets.  

    As you ride, hear chilling tales of York’s most prolific hauntings, misdeeds and most sinister characters. You’ll pass infamous landmarks like Clifford’s Tower, York Minster and Dick Turpin's grave, and stop occasionally to get better acquainted with ghostly venues. By the end, you’ll have an intimate understanding of York’s sinister side, touted as one of the spookiest cities in the world!

    Your tour returns to the departure point with time to warm your chilled soul at a local pub.
