Peterborough Ghost Walk

Unique Experience of the Year Award - European Luxury Travel Guide 2018
5 star - TripAdvisor

Discover more about Peterborough’s most haunted building – the Museum – and most haunted area; the Cathedral Precincts.
Your costumed guide will entertain and educate in a fun and theatrical way, explaining more about the city’s past, while sending a few chills up the spine. There are no gimmicks or made-up ghosts on this tour – just good, old-fashioned story telling based on traditional and local tales associated with the area – all researched and verified wherever possible.

The walk starts at Peterborough Museum before heading around the City Centre.
The tour, which has been featured on radio, newspaper and TV, including Living TV’s ‘Most Haunted’, lasts about one and a half to two hours and is suitable for wheelchair users and the visually impaired.

Due to its gruesome content, we don’t recommend this tour for children under 8 or those of a nervous disposition.

Please note these tours used to run weekly in July and August, but are now the third Tuesday of the month only.
