26 October to 4 November at various locations
If you are looking for a city to celebrate the most haunting time of the year, then Halloween York is a spooktacular destination! With a tortuous past dating back to Roman times, York is hailed as the most haunted city in Europe. The pubs have poltergeists, the hotels are haunted and there’s even a spook in a supermarket!
Zombies, ghosts, witches and even pirates will be out in force this Halloween in York with events across the city and beyond. There’s plenty to frighten and fascinate the whole family and for those adults who enjoy a good scare too!
The city has pulled together the best scary offers – whether you are looking for a spooky pumpkin trail, to a twilight ghost cruise, to a spine-chilling ghost walk. Don’t miss the free ‘Great York Ghost Search’ taking place across the city this October Half Term for your chance to win some scarily-good prizes, thanks to our takeover partner The York Dungeon – the Home of Halloween.
