The Great York Ghost Search returns!

Calling all mini ghostbusters! The fantastic Great York Ghost Search is back for 2019 and it’s one of our favourite October half term activities in York. Why? Well, it’s great, free spooky fun for families. From 11th October to 1st November, discover the individually designed ghost lamps and mini ghosts hidden around the ancient streets of York as you explore every corner of one of the most haunted cities. Try to find all the lamps to be in with the chance to win some spooktacular prizes thanks to York Dungeon.

Hunt out a mini ghost!

From the 27th October to 1st November (5pm to 7pm) there will be 50 mini ghosts hiding in York’s shadowy corners between 5pm and 7pm, some with extra special decorations. If you are lucky enough to find a mini ghost, it is yours to keep! Why not hand in your completed trail map at the Visit York Information Centre to stand a chance of winning a family of 4 Premium Merlin Annual Pass too? For more details, visit
