About Us

Unique walks through York, Scarboro' and beyond inspired by true crime stories from Victorian history - why not walk with the Lady Brigante awhile?

With the Coming of Dusk...

And with the door of an atelier closed for the day – it is possible to catch a glimpse of a celebrated miniaturist and storyteller clad in her distinctive black feline boots wandering through the unquiet streets and secret passages in a quest to wake the dead.

And for those of a curious and hardy temperament – why not come along to the ancient City of York and listen to the Lady Brigante as she shares with you the tales of the illustrious, the miscreants, artists, misfits and those ordinary folk who have ALL been lost to history – until now!

However, for those of a sensitive nature averse to real stories of tears, heartache and tragedy – a meander through the fascinating streets of York or beyond may NOT be to your taste.
