The York Terror Trail
Historical Tour of the Dark Side of York’s Past
York is an old city. Its history stretches back over 1900 years.
In that time it has seen more than its fair share of darkness.
Invasion by the Romans and the Vikings, civil wars and deadly plagues. Each has cast its shadow and carved its mark on the ancient streets of Eboracum.
For the most part these horrors stay safely in the past. Forgotten.
The York Terror Trail is here for those who wish to see those sights and learn those secrets that most people would rather forget.
The tour begins at 6.45pm, every day of the week, from York’s most haunted pub, The Golden Fleece.
From there we reach out into the dark menacing streets of the oldest parts of York, uncovering stories as we go. Prepare yourself for gruesome contact with the history of some of this city’s most famous past inhabitants.
Guy Fawkes, Margaret Clitherow and others whose suffering has been lost in time. But their stories remain.
