Ripon Ghost Walks

Jail door with padlock advertising the Ripon Ghost Walks

With such a long history, it’s no wonder the streets of Ripon are filled with stories.

Ripon Ghost Walks explore the darker side of Ripon’s history from the macabre to the mysterious.

Discover ancient burial sites, curious bone finds and characters who lived and died hundreds of years ago, but who some say still linger.

Please book your Ripon Ghost Walk tickets in advance to secure your place.


Prices: £6 adults / £4 children under 16s

Ripon Ghost Walk details:

We meet at 7.15pm by the red telephone boxes in the Market Place.
The walk will last around 90 minutes, finishing back at the Market Square in time to see the Ripon Hornblower at 9pm.


We recommend you book your tickets in advance as we may not be able to be accommodated if the group is already full. Y

We tell fascinating stories and spooky tales as you explore the most haunted spots of Ripon.

No audience participation is required but is welcome!

Of course, feel free to ask us questions along the way, and if you’ve ever seen a ghost in Ripon, we’d love to hear about it!

The walking tours are aimed at adults and family groups with children 7-16 years old and are suitable for anyone who wants to hear about the ghostly goings on in Ripon.

We occasionally host special Children’s Ghost Walks which are designed specifically for children. These have an earlier start time of 4.45pm. 

Friendly dogs are very welcome. We just ask that they are kept on a lead and to be mindful of other visitors. 

Dog won’t be able to enter the museums.

The route is suitable for pushchairs with the negotiation of a few steps and alleyways. Our guides are happy to adapt the route for wheelchair users but please let us know at the time of booking to ensure the best route on the night.

We don’t want to give too much away, but you will be doing some walking, about one mile. Most of the route is on pavements but there are some steps and cobbles too.

If you have a group of 10 or more people and you are interested in a private ghost walk then get in touch.
