About Us

The Deathly Dark Tours run a peculiar and curious ghost walk in the heart of York, a city believed to be the most haunted in all of Europe.

Join one of our weird and wonderful guides, who each have a supernatural obsession with York's dark history. Together you will walk the streets and talk of some foul and festering things; The night a madman tried to burn down York Minster, a shadowy figure in the alley and the tragic haunting of Bedern Slums...

The tour begins on Grape Lane, outside the wonderful 1331 Bar and Restaurant, ending either in the shadowy courtyard of St Crux or beneath the looming stones of Clifford's Tower. A different kind of tour, for those looking to experience the darker side of York with a grim sense of humour.

Suitable for couples, solo travellers and families of all ages. The tour will run whatever the weather and dogs are welcome! All tour times will be listed in full on the website but if you have any queries, please do give the Deathly family a call on 07851 032 041.

Private tour experiences can also be arranged to suit your requirements, subject to availability. Please email dede@deathlydarktours or give us a call to discuss.
