Shadows of York: Voted Best Small Attraction in York

Are you brave enough to uncover some of York’s turbulent and tragic past? A past that manifests itself in the unexplained sightings of shapes and shadows haunting our streets and buildings. Do you believe in ghosts?

My name is Mackenzie. I want to take you on a journey through the lanes and snickelways that, if the walls could speak, would deliver some the most chilling stories of all time.

I work with small groups of around 20-25 people. It’s fun and more personal and this way, I can get to know you and you, in turn, can ask me questions while we slip, unnoticed into the shadows.
