Shadows of York


Are you brave enough to uncover some of York’s turbulent and tragic past? A past that manifests itself in the unexplained sightings of shapes and shadows haunting our streets and buildings. Do you believe in ghosts?

My name is Mackenzie. I am an actor, musician and lover of this amazing city. I want to take you on a journey through the lanes and snickelways that, if the walls could speak, would deliver some the most chilling stories of all time.

I work with small groups of around 30 people. It’s fun and more personal and this way, I can get to know you and you, in turn, can ask me questions while we slip, unnoticed into the shadows. 

To book click HERE. Tours last approx 80 mins. Suitable for most including families ages 7+  Wheelchair accesable.  

Bring a brolly just in case. The show (Or tour) will go on regardless of the weather!

Private bookings available throughout the year. Advanced booking recommended. Perfect for anyone wanting a more in depth and personal experience. Extended tours also available. Visit the WEBSITE for more information. 

Please note there are no actors, tricks or pranks on this tour. BUT! Be warned weary travellers, the shadows of York have presented themselves time and time again in the past. They may be waiting just for you...
