The Original Nottingham Ghost Walk

Every Saturday evening at 7.00pm, from the first in Saturday in January to the first Saturday in December, inclusive – without doubt the most successful regular walking tour in Nottingham! (We are also the ONLY Ghost Walk in Nottingham!).

The Original Nottingham Ghost Walk is a storytelling tour around the Castle Quarter of the city. It is easy walking, about 1/2 mile long and takes approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours. The walk starts from Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, every Saturday at 7pm.  Enjoy a drink or arrive early for a pre-walk meal. We then gather together to hear about the Cursed Galleon of Ye Olde Trip and Nottingham's only pirate. The walk then sets off up Castle Road, skirting the bottom of Nottingham Castle's ramparts and walls.  

Along the way, you may hear tales of Queen Isabella's screams; the 28 Welsh princes left to hang and their bodies to rot from the castle walls; the mysterious 'Lady in the Light' or a police dog who had a strange encounter in the castle's galleries. You may also hear the disturbing tale of the Human Pin Cushion, the Baby in the Wall and the antics of Marshal Tallard; a French war hostage and socialite. Arriving at the graveyard of St Nicholas' Church, you will learn about a plague pit and a long lost swamp in the old Broad Marsh, which was the final resting place for a corpulent landlady. Finally, in ancient, haunted caves below Ye Olde Salutation, you may hear stories of a Haunting Highwayman; a little girl, who lived and died, and still remains there, to this day; and ... the Best Way to Die?
