Celebrate the most haunting time of the year, you can be a fearless soul or a jumpy scaredy-cat. York offers tricks, treats and spooky encounters for all. Known as the most ‘Haunted City in Europe’, ghosts roam the snickelways and haunt Georgian townhouses and historic inns.

If you like things a little more gruesome and frightening, big kids and adults brave enough can take on horrific scares, we’ve put together a hair-raising list of frights to be had across the city, from ghost walks to fun tricks and treats.

When spending time in the city and surrounding area, we ask that you be considerate and allow yourself and others to enjoy York safely. Please wash your hands regularly, wear a face covering when required, and maintain a safe distance from others.
