Full description

Try something different for the night and embark on a horror walking tour of Stratford upon Avon's streets. Follow your guide through 2000 years of the town's darkest secrets and discover the terrifying and torturous stories that lie beneath the surface.

Meet your guide as the sun sets and the ancient horrors of Stratford upon Avon's past awaken from their slumber. Walk the streets and hear the tales that expose the horrific underbelly of humanity.

Pass by Shakespear's Birthplace, and hear how the famous playwright escaped the plague. Admire the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and learn of the many dark mishaps that have occurred there.

Then, pass by the outside of the Holy Trinity Church and learn of the haunting stories from the Plague to mysteriously stolen skulls. As you walk along the River Avon, listen closely to hear the lost soul's who drowned there and get spooked by their stories.

Scratch the surface of this beautiful town, and maybe never look into the mirror again.
