  • Meet a Victorian spiritualist who will show you the sites of Cambridge's mysteries and murders
  • See the Hangman's House and uncover what the famous Corpus Christi clock means
Vampires, grave robbers, and skeletons in the cupboard! Join a theatrical 90-minute walking tour of Cambridge to discover its most ghastly and ghoulish secrets on a moonlit evening, led by a costumed Victorian character.
What to Expect
Do you want to discover the darkest, most twisted tales of Cambridge? Who better to spin those yarns than the notorious Cambridge Victorian mystic, Miss Ivy. She will take you on a tour, dressed in her Victorian finery, of Cambridge's creepiest colleges and eeriest alleyways and tell you the stories of grave-robbers, body-snatchers, and some very sinister scientists. You'll see the Hangman's House, ponder mysterious murders, and even your own death.

Find out about Cambridge's very own vampire and why you may have a skeleton in your closet. Miss Ivy is also an expert in local folklore and will tell you the legends of both the Fens, curses and omens, and the latest stories of spiritual encounters in well-to-do Cambridge Victorian parlors.

This tour contains all the most horrible history of Cambridge that can be crammed in, full of guts, gore, and ghouls. All will be told in a theatrical way by a Victorian master story-teller. She may even ask for your help! All you need to do is decide for yourself what is fiction and what is fact! And of course to expect the unexpected.
