York is steeped in history, some of it particularly grim and grizzly… Many people have seen and heard paranormal activity, with lost souls still wandering the Earth. On this bus tour, you’ll take in some of the city’s most beautiful – and notorious – spooky sites and hear all the ghost stories.
Starting at York's main train station, you’ll hop on an old Routemaster double-decker bus, which was once used for funeral corteges. The first person you'll meet is the creepy conductor and, as you're shown aboard, things will start to feel a little bit eerie. You mightn’t be able to put your finger on what's going on straight away, but everything will become clear once you head off on your journey...
Of course, the bus for these ghost tours is completely safe (last time we checked, the driver was a real-live human being and not a zombie), but prepare yourself for some on-board surprises as our talented team of actors delivers a comedy-horror experience that will have you laughing one minute and jumping out of your seat the next!
