An interesting walk which I went on with a friend some years ago was the London Ghost Walk. It was a fascinating tour and I was able to revisit some of my old haunts (so to speak!) as I had worked briefly in the City in the 1960s.

We met at the Monument on a bleak and grey November evening – just the right atmosphere for a spooky saunter. We visited Pudding Lane and then around various churchyards, mainly in the city area. The tour was enhanced by our guide who was both entertaining and knowledgeable. Whether one believes in ghosts or not, the experience was well worth doing from a historical point of view, as we learnt about the Great Fire of London; the great plague and many other facts in London’s fascinating and in many respects, bloodthirsty and shameful history, including visiting the site where William Wallace (Braveheart) was hanged, drawn and quartered.

I have been on other ghost walks: York, Edinburgh, Sydney, Guildford, Prague and find them a good – albeit spooky – way of seeing parts of cities that one would not necessarily visit.

    I like ghost walk but I have not been on one. I think they may be a bit too scary for me.
