Tours and Walks 

The activities of the group are funded by tours and other events. We can provide tours specially tailored to your needs. Even if you do not believe in ghosts and are scared of the dark click here to find out about what we can offer. Remember that all of the stories we tell are of true & recent events. If you want to spend an interesting couple of hours listening to the traditional ghost stories of Durham, as well as other guided historical tours contact David Butler, via the Durham History Society


Unlike the York tours we do not employ people to dress up in costumes to jump out and scare you. All scares are real. If you book ahead we can accommodate tourists with a wide range of disabilities and meals can also be arranged.

Choose from

Most Haunted Durham
A sort of moving séance. Test your own psychic powers (most people have them) around the areas of Durham City where we know that there is current or recent paranormal activity.

Pubs and Prisons
Even if you do not believe in ghosts you will enjoy this.  Durham’s oldest pubs have a fantastic history. One used to be a dungeon, described as “among the worst cells in England.” Another was used by Durham hangmen who held bizarre parties before and after executions where they sold souvenirs of their gruesome trade: one was the centre of the body snatching trade, another had links to child prostitution. Take a drink in each one – hear the story (over 18’s only)

A Horrid History of Durham
Perfect holiday time filler for your own 'little monsters'. Family entertainment for youngsters and parents with all the history your teacher dare not tell.

Adult Durham
Bawdy stories for broad minded adults only. Lots of S-E-X. Find out about what went on during a pre-Christian fertility orgy, prostitution in Victorian Durham and lots of stuff we cannot mention here.

Gilesgate & the Silver Link Bridge
Dark and scary, it starts at a traditional Geordie pub and across an area believed to be the most haunted in the whole of Durham. There is a very good chance of experiencing real paranormal activity here. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties unfortunately.

We can also provide speakers for a wide variety of occasions. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
