Halloween In York

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.

Discover a hair-raising list of frights to be had across the city, from ghost walks to fun tricks and treats. If you like things a little more gruesome and frightening, big kids and adults brave enough can take on horrific scares, visit the York Dungeon by day or by night with a series of Dungeon Lates on offer and for those who are of a more fragile nature try out the family friendly walking tour.
