York Terror Trail, a history tour of the horrors of York.There is a monster, 1900 years old, thousands have died in its name. Like all the best masters of disguise it’s gone by many names: Eboracum, Eoforvic, Jorvic… today we just call it York. It has many weapons: battles, murders, terrible accidents and deliberate neglect. This city has two sides, the one it wants you to see and the one it doesn’t. It hides it down back streets and in the corner of your eye. We shouldn’t want to see it but we do. The terror trail can show it to you…The tour starts 6.45pm every night from York’s most haunted pub the Golden Fleece Inn.Adults: £5Children: £2

Gemma was animated, fascinating and fun. She is very knowledgable. We were informed, horrified and amused by her stories. Definitely worth £5.

Jemma was an excellent guide with great acting skills. She helped everyone to break the ice by holding hands and skipping across the roads! The stories were more Horrible Histories than the usual made-up ghost stories and no less for it. I've done most of...More

It was brilliant - more history than ghosts. Our tour guide was excellent and very funny. We finished upstairs in the golden fleece. A must!

It's a mixture of both to be honest! I really enjoyed it though! It wasn't gimmicky.
