Your journey begins at York Dungeon, where, after receiving your headphones, you line up for a photo opportunity with grisly ghouls before boarding. Once onboard, sit back and enjoy the spooky sounds of deep moans and creaking doors as you are taken on your ghostly tour.


The Ghost Bus Tour allows people of all ages to explore haunted areas in York with live actors that recreate real-life events throughout history. The classic 1960s Routemaster bus is perfect for these tours as its open-top design gives everyone a clear view at any spectre they wish (or don't). During each trip, riders can experience theatrical magic along their journey through some of York's most famous landmarks, such as Clifford's Tower, which was built by William the Conqueror after he captured England from King Harold II during the Norman Invasion in 1066.
The tour makes a stop at The Shambles, a famous street of Medieval cottages that were built with their overhanging second stories supported by wood beams.
York is one of England's most haunted cities, and with tours like the Ghost Bus, it has become a popular destination for those who wish to discover what lies beyond the veil.
York is steeped in ghastly and grim history, so the stories you'll hear as you travel through this ancient city are guaranteed to chill you to the bone. Each story comes with a visual twist that will make it feel like the dead have come back to life around you. Book your tour today.
