Cambridge: Ghost Tour Led by University Alumni Guide

Cambridge: Ghost Tour Led by University Alumni Guide

Search for ghosts and hear the supernatural stories of Cambridge. See where Wordsworth made ghost spotting scientific, find the origin of the phrase ‘the skeleton in the cupboard’, and hear about the modern ghost story that made the national press. Find out why you might see horses floating around King’s Chapel, see if you can espy Oliver Cromwell’s ghost, and end up in the most haunted place in Cambridge. The age of the university, the even older age of the city are the perfect ingredients for spooky events. All our guides are either current or former students at the university. Many of them have lived in drafty old college buildings, they have shivered in dark corners of the colleges, and some have even experienced the ghosts. This is all about hearing it from the horse’s mouth, and from those who will really give you a thrill. Hear about the digging up of dead bodies, learn about how witches were deal with in a supposedly educated city, and find out what sort of meat was burning in the marketplace. Find out about the nice ghost in the haunted bookshop and the unhappy ghosts of Corpus Christi. And finally, learn what to do if you hear a panting hound behind you. See classic Cambridge buildings from the outside, like King’s Chapel, Gonville and Caius College, Clare College, Market Hill, the Haunted Bookshop near St Edward the Martyr Church, the Eagle Pub, Corpus Christi College, St Botolph’s Lane, Little St Mary’s Lane and Peterhouse. It covers ghost stories, but also throws in witches, gruesome happenings, and some of the less known history of the city.
