Well researched, historical, stories, of witches, ghosts and generally unpleasant individuals set in the beautiful city of Canterbury. John struck the right balance of facts and humour, would highly recommend the tour for young (mid teens) and up. Very enjoyable.

We were unsure if our boys (11 & 13) would be too young for the walk. It wasn't a problem, they thoroughly enjoyed it. There's crowd participation, fun and facts. There were a few tongue in cheek comments about politics, current affairs and local issues,...More

If you want a tour with the guide telling you random bits of information interspersed with the incoherent babblings of an eccentric then this is the tour for you, if, like me you expect a ghost walk then go to Waterstones, buy this man's book,...More

I am a big fan of ghost tours, not because I believe in the supernatural much, but because they usually come with great historical and social stories that I find interesting. They’re usually quite entertaining too.  When we took a trip to Canterbury, I found...More
