About us

Pubs with poltergeists, hotels that are haunted and sightings of a spook in a supermarket! With a torturous past dating back to Roman times, York is rightly hailed as the most haunted city in Europe and the perfect location for a great ghost search.

Discover 26 Ghost Lamps and Mini Ghosts hidden around the ancient streets of York as you explore every corner of our haunted city. Will you and your family dare to take up the challenge of finding all the ghosts for the chance to win some spooktacular prizes, thanks to York Dungeon – the home of Halloween.

You can search for the lamps as twilight falls, between 26 Oct – 2 Nov. We recommend between 5pm to 7pm when the city is bathed in moonlight – the perfect Ghost Search conditions.
