Haunted Chester - Ghost Walk
Chester is a ghosthunter's heaven. Join a night-time ghost hunt around the eerie haunts of Chester's mysterious and murky past. Tour the ancient, walled city after dark, visit well-known spooky and scary places, and hear spine-chilling tales of ghosts, spectres, and things that go bump in the night. It's scary, fun and entertaining.
Tours run at 19.30 every Saturday, all year from just outside the Tourist Information Centre, Town Hall, and Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from June - October; and Saturdays only from November - May.
