As twilight gives in to night the Merchants invite you to join the search each evening between 6pm and 8pm ( Monday – Thursday only ) for Little York Ghosts along the atmospheric ancient streets that surround York Minster .

During the day try to find the 11 Royal Court Ghosts that are haunting buildings around York, you’ll find them in windows often off the beaten track. You can bid for these Ghosts on Ebay, all profit will go to charity.

Visit the grand Mansion House in St Helens Square where you can see our basement installation “The Residents”. There is free admission to the basement and a reduced admission with this map to the upper floors of the Georgian mansion where five discrete Ghosts are sequestered. Ask for a spotters form to be in with a chance of winning one in a prize draw.

The maps and events are free ( there is a discounted admission to the upper floors of the Mansion House with a Ghost Week map, admission to the "Residents" installation in the basement is free )
