What Past Ghost Walkers Are Saying
You’re not getting a rehearsed and scripted guide regurgitating facts to you. Instead, if you’re lucky enough to have Steve be your guide, you’ll have one of the most interesting and knowledgeable people on the face of the planet. Steve knows more things about Newcastle’s history than anyone you’ll ever meet.
I have done ghost walks all over the world and this tour was by far the best tour ever, read my blog for more info!
I actually heard footsteps walk towards me in the darkness but we were all stood still, as they got closer I seen a black shadow man vanish in front of us all then we heard a snarling growl sound and at the same time the ghost device started making noise. Dave was fantastic at keeping the crowd calm and as he did we then witnessed a can get kicked about 10ft in the archway. I really enjoyed this tour and I can't wait to book another.

If you’re a history geek, you’ll really like the Newcastle Ghost Walks, rich in history and facts. If you’re a paranormal fan, then you’ll definitely geek out at the sheer amount of activity you’ll experience that includes smells, sights, and sounds. All are non-fabricated, too, because you walk through a real city. I left feeling more than elated having experienced the best ever ghost walk I’ve ever been on in my entire life. Hands down, this was the best and it will be pretty hard to top this one in the future.
