Award-winning Ghost Walk in Shakespeare’s ‘haunted’ Stratford upon Avon. (Established 2002)

“fantastic”  “wonderfully entertaining”  “great storytelling”  “absolutely brilliant”

Join Edward or the Man in Black for a magical walk around the ‘haunted’ streets of Stratford upon Avon.

The stories you hear are true, what you make of them, is up to you. Good old-fashioned storytelling with entertainment.

Discover the ancient creaky buildings seeping with tales of ghosts, witches, murder and misery.  Hear about the witch who lived in a slum, a 17th century haunted tearoom, the theatre ghost and a jilted bride. Don’t go home alone!

The guides are professional entertainers and deliver Stratford’s premier ghost walk in their own unique style. A magical and ghostly evening – not to be missed!
