Magical Ghost Walk around the 'haunted' streets of Stratford-upon-Avon. Every Saturday all year, (plus Halloween special on 31 Oct), private walks for groups and additional walks during school holidays.
Join The Man in Black, Vincent, Herbert Mortimer or Jocasta, for an entertaining walk around haunted Stratford to hear ghost stories, with a little entertainment.
Discover the buildings seeping with tales of witches, ghosts, murder and mayhem. For example, the witch who lived in a slum, the 17th century haunted tearoom and a ghost at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Good old-fashioned story-telling with entertainment. The guides are professional entertainers or actors - it promises to be a magical and ghostly evening. Be afraid, very afraid....
