Watch out on the cobbles as you lend your ear to terrible tales of the witches of Yorkshire. Walk to Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate, the smallest street with possibly the longest name in York.

Continue to King's Square, learning more about the area and hearing the tale of the magical tree with a witchy connection. Next, follow your guide through the old quarter of York, the Minster Quarter, where you pass the vibrant shopping area of the city. Stroll through Low Petergate and High Petergate and listen in awe at the fascinating and chilling stories of the past. Marvel at the grandeur of the world's most magnificent and iconic cathedrals, York Minster. Right opposite that, see the St Michael Le Belfrey Church. Hear some more spooky and witchery tales and a name that might spark some recognition. Gaze at the architecture of medieval buildings, gorgeous Georgian townhouses, and other period styles in Stonegate, one of York's most historic roads. Discover the alleys, ginnels, and snickets of the city and walk through York's longest snickelway (narrow alleys running between York's streets). Feel the chills in the air in the hidden courtyard of Barley Hall. Back to where it all began, this spellbinding old town walking tour lets you discover the wicked history of medieval York. In addition to exploring York, you can also opt to enter the Potions Cauldron for an immersive potion-making experience.

I would prefer not to be filmed by the wandering public, or have my photo taken whilst on the tour. I know there isnt much I could really do about it, but it might be an idea to forewarn people attending your tours that it might happen, and if anyone isnt happy - they can make an informed decision as to whether to continue. If there was a warning in your pre-blurb about this - I didnt see it, so it should be prominent. Shame as the tour was great

Great fun, laugh out loud and informative. Lots of little snippets of history definitely not in a standard history book! Audience participation really good and funny. Our 'conductor' Mr Robin Graves and driver Bob just hilarious.

My experience today was so welcoming and amazing. I highly recommend this tour! The tour guide was very fun and made sure everyone was included. I will definitely be back and really loved this tour. Thank you!

Great way to see much of the beautiful city of York. Learnt a lot about its spooky past and its a great way to get a feel for Yorks heritage gaining ghostly facts along the way.

Fun experience with a welcoming host. Entertaining stories of Witches during an evening walk in historic town. Can only recommend.
