We went on the Horrible history walk in Scarborough. Although it was advertised for children, all the adults had a great time! We walked around the town looking for historical clues to find the 'Smugglers'! We learnt lots on the way and had a great time! I've been to Scarborough many times and I've not noticed even half of the... More

I went in half term with my daughter and even though I'm from Scarborough I learnt so much. So informative and interesting and would do the same tour again.

We had a wonderful private tour for 20 around Scarborough's smugglers haunts for our friend Emma's 50th birthday. Jonathan made this very informative and great fun. We saw parts of Scarborough we would never have imagined existed. A cold and blustery February tour flew past thanks to Jonathan's enthusiasm and engaging manner. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our tour around the old town with Jonathan. He was very informative, and pointed out lots of historical features, which we had passed several times and never noticed. It was great fun and we learned lots of interesting facts about our new home town. We feel inspired to find out more and can't wait to do some... More

Great fun & fascinating experience walking around Scarborough old town with our personal custom officer. Jonathan informed us of so much local history we had no idea about. Enjoyed the quiz even though the Scouse Seadogs won but only just! Big thanks for organising tour to suit weather & being flexible for our needs we look forward to joining you... More

Last night myself and nine friends had the horrible history tour around Scarborough's old town. Aimed at children, of which we had only one with us, we all had a really great evening. We walked down streets which I as a local have been down before, but things were pointed out to us which I was totally unaware of. We... More

The walk was excellent - extremely interesting and my kids (8 & 10) loved it. I found out lots about the history of Scarborough I didn't know and found lots of places I had walked by and not noticed before.

We went on this tour with Jonathan today and cannot recommend it highly enough 😀 We went with our children, 9 and 7, our niece, 12 and our friends who have children of similar ages. From the start the children were captivated by the Customs Officers story and the competitive nature of the tour! We went off at a pace... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Horrid History Walk. It was great to run the walk during the February half term holiday, especially as I hadn't been able to run it since May 2015 due to my work in Dorset last year! I am delighted your children and niece enjoyed the experience and you felt it was... More
