Spooky & Ghostly Guided Walks

 in Shrewsbury For a spooky night out why not come on one of the Shrewsbury Ghost Walks? Shrewsbury is one of the most haunted towns in England, and a guided ghost walk is the ideal way to learn more about them.

Did you know about the man buried alive in St. Julian’s churchyard?  Learn about the monks seen around Old St. Chads, and hear about the steeplejack seen climbing the spire of St. Alkmund’s.  Although our guides cannot guarantee any sightings, you will be intrigued by these stories and many more.

The tours take place during October and November.  They depart every Thursday evening at 7pm on 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, and Halloween Sunday 31st  October and on Thursday 4th, 11th, 18th  and 25th  November.   Tickets are £4.00 for adults and £2.50 for children (16 & under).  These tours are always very popular and it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.  The tours can be booked in person at the Shrewsbury Visitor Information Centre or by telephone with a credit/debit card.

The Shrewsbury Visitor Information Centre is located at Rowley’s House, Barker Street, Shrewsbury and can be contacted on 01743 281200.  The centre is open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm.
