Robin Hood's Bay Ghost Walk

Take a unique tour through streets and alleyways as you listen to Tales of the Strange and Supernatural. Journey into a mysterious past of Spirits, Shipwrecks, Smugglers, Local Folklore and Legend.

Listed as one of the UK's top 11 Ghost Walks by - one of the UK's largest holiday lettings firms:

 Holiday Lettings


  • Adult £5.00
  • Children (under 14) £4.00.
  • Family Ticket (3 children) £20 - more than 3 children £ 3 per child  
  • Reductions for larger groups and school parties.

This walk is designed to suit all ages. Adult only groups receive a different kind of story to groups with children. I have to adapt it accordingly. But overall it is meant to amuse, entertain, to be thought provoking, informative and inclusive, regardless of age.
However, the walk is not suitable for small infants (under 3), babies and pushchairs.

Please see below for more reviews and information.

RHB Ghost Walk on The Daily Mail

"The reason ghost walks are fun has little to do with fear. It's more about exploring an atmospheric place after dark with a well-informed raconteur.

Ghost-walkers also know routes that normal tourists rarely take. Our latest one in Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire, was a revelation in this respect.

A top-hatted figure, flickering lantern held high, led us through shadowy lanes scarcely the width of a person.

It was an unforgettable experience. Not least because, passing one cottage at such close quarters, none of us could help seeing the prone figure of a man in his underpants doing sit-ups."
