Starting at the Roman Bath pub and museum visitors will hear its history and the many reports of paranormal activity then make their way through some of the ancient alleys and backstreets, hearing some of the grisly history before making their way to Kings Square and the historic Shambles. After hearing about the street the guide will tell a few ghostly tales before talking about the historic Golden Fleece, said to be the most haunted pub in York. A stroll along the shortest street in York will take us to another pub to hear of hangings and a famous highwayman. Then the group will head to Bedern Hall, for another chilling story before heading to College Street and a visit The Treasurers House. We'll end at York Minster. (As the tour is by private booking only the tour route can be altered)
