Trevor Rooney's Ghost Walk of York

Trevor Rooney's Ghost Walk of YorkThe Ghost Walk Of York

From outside the Evil Eye Bar in Stonegate every night at 7.30pm

Tel: 07757-706752


Trevor Rooney was the first person to start the costumed guided spooky walks in York  This walk offers something completely different because you guide is a born natural storyteller who not only believes in the things that go bump in the night. This man is a resident who knows all the history and it’s hidden secrets.

When you arrive outside the Evil Eye in Stonegate at 7.30 you’re going to recognise your guide wearing a hat decorated in Ostridge feathers. His costume denotes something of the 16th to the 17th century.

The walk winds it’s way through the quaint streets, alleyways and historic backdrops befitting to the ghostly history.

On most occasions you finally end at York’s most haunted pub The Black Swan where you can enjoy having a chat with your guide.

Every night this ghost walk is different, stories are not tape recorder style, Trevor Rooney can change like the wind, is very humorous, witty, and can tell tales like you would never imagine!
The ghost walk of York has been featured on national Tv shows, on The radio and the national press.

My other half and I went on Trevors Ghost Walk on Saturday 16th October. To be honest - not that impressed. He seemed a nice guy, theatrical and atmospheric etc - but out of the '420 ghost stories of york' - he only actually talked about one!!! Unfortunately we gave up the ghost and left after 40 minutes. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DON'T BOTHER!

The Ghost walk was fabulous!!! Lots of good stories, cool costumes and I liked the "Peter-giest" pun :P

An absolute wonder and laugh to work with...couldnt have asked for a perfect
performer to just do what he does best
and let me do the photographs of him on
historic locations. He is a charming and
welcoming character...dressed to thrill
on the right occasion...Thanks Trevor!
