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 at busy periods.

Join The Man in Black, Vincent, Herbert Mortimer or Jocasta, for an entertaining walk around haunted Stratford to hear ghostly 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....

Booking is essential, please telephone a few days before or on the day, (before 6pm) on 07855 760377 to reserve your place.

Walk starts from Waterside, by the Swan fountain, opposite the junction of Sheep Street and near the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Duration 1 1/2hrs (approx.)

Each customer is given a ticket with 5 tear-off discount vouchers. There is no use-by date on the vouchers and they can be used at a range of shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions - including the 'haunted' Old Thatch Tavern pub and Shakespeare Hotel, not forgetting 30% off entry to the Shakespeare Houses.

Groups welcome by arrangement. For more information about our Ghost Walk or popular sightseeing town walk please call 07855 760377 or visit
